PRICE AND WHERE TO BUY IT
I purchased by RB3026 sunglasses direct from the Ray-Ban website, at a cost of £135 last summer before the holiday season. The website was fast and extremely helpful, and has a feature where you can customer your sunglasses before ordering, allowing you to customise the lens colour, style and rim finish of the product - to make your Ray-Ban's feel unique to you.
This particular product is marketed as unisex, and I have seen plenty of ladies wearing similar Ray-Bans too while on my travels too, and they are well suited to either male or female.
The RB3026 themselves are in the traditional Ray-Ban Aviator-style sunglasses, which have been copied by many other brands, but still are distinctly unique (partly due to the Ray-Ban logo in the top right corner mind!). The lenses themselves are the unmistakable teardrop design, and I customised mine so the lenses were black and slightly transparent, rather than the more traditional mirrored lens type - but that was just a personal choice of mine. The frame that I chose was silver, and I feel gives the RB3026 an even more sophisticated look over the brown of gold colour frames that are also available online. The frames themselves are very thing and do not stand out like they do on many other non-authentic Ray-Ban style sunglasses, adding further to the classy look and feel of these sunglasses.
All Ray-Ban sunglasses are UV 400 protected which means not only do they look good; they also provide more than adequate protection for your eyes and face from the sun's rays.
If you purchase direct from the Ray-Ban website, your product is delivered in a small leather box with the Ray-Ban logo on it, with an authentic lens cloth and a safety booklet (which is self-explanatory really, don't put the glasses down on surfaces etc.)
Whilst some people may fall off their chair at the price of these sunglasses (I know I nearly did), I do feel they are a luxury worth pushing the boat out for, especially for when you are wandering along the beach somewhere tropical during the summer! Never had any issues with them thus far, and by removing any stains with the lens cloth mine are still in top condition almost a full year (and four holidays) after my purchase - proof that if you take care of something they will last you! These RB3026 certainly get a five out of five from me.
