We dig lots of what Ray-Ban does, but so does pretty much every single person on the planet, so whether you're vacationing on the beach or walking around town on a warm day, you'll see about 2,534 different people with the black Ray-Ban Wayfarer model or gold Ray-Ban aviator model on. If you want to stand out from the pack, here are a few solid options that are different, not over-the-top trendy, and classic as hell.
Paul Smith Spectacles Clarefield Sunglasses: Lightweight, minimal, and classic cool. Think John Lennon but in 2015.
GARRETT LEIGHT Harding Acetate Sunglasses: Inspired by the style of iconic playwright Arthur Miller, the champagne color plus green lenses is just a money combo.
Oliver Peoples Eyewear Bernardo Polarized Sunglasses: The acetate frame is split with tortoise and crystal, giving it a Ray-Ban Clubmaster style look but with more protection for times when you throw it in a crowded bag or drop them on the floor while poolside.
GARRETT LEIGHT San Juan Polarized Sunglasses: Like your standard aviator, but with a luxurious touch thanks to the double top bar.
Persol Reflex Edition Sunglasses: Inspired by the look and feel of vintage cameras, this keeps the classic and masculine styling of Persol sunglasses while giving it a valiant style upgrade from a lot of the more common models.
Thom Browne Round-Frame Acetate And Titanium Sunglasses: From the legendary Thom Browne, these glasses are handcrafted in Tokyo with a matte black look for killer style that won't show oils and fingerprints as easily as other black sunglasses.
GARRETT LEIGHT Kinney Acetate Sunglasses: If you're seeing a pattern here, it's because we're REALLY liking what the team at GARRETT LEIGHT has been doing as of late. This one comes in a beautiful butterscotch/honey color that's a nice change of pace from all the brown and black out there.
