The Wayfarer was introduced by Ray-Ban in the 1950s and the design is still going strong. A pop culture staple, Wayfarers played an integral role in The Blues Brothers and Risky Business, among other films, and are a constant celebrity favorite. In fact, they have become such an icon that the “wayfarer” description now transcends the original Ray-Ban style and has become an all-encompassing description for the design. Classic and timeless, the wayfarer flatters most face shapes and definitely ups the wearer’s cool factor. So whether your customers are actual rebels without a cause, or just want to look like one, we’ve assembled an appealing assortment.
