Advantages: Good sun protection
I was accidentally lured in to buying these at my opticians. I had seen them in Harrods and was surprised that my local opticians had them in his little display cabinet. Well when I tried them on they were made for me! I have a smallish face and the more popular Jackie Ohhs are too big for me.
Why Ray Bans?
Quality glasses made in Italy.
Lens 100% UV PROTECTION.
Quality arm / hinge mechanism.
I would describe my glasses as covering around my eyes well and blocking out the 'potential' sun whilst still allowing me to see clearly. The thick rim and arms are stylish not clumsy and give a lovely classy feel to wearing them. I love the colour (burgundy-red) with the grey lens. I find that although they do not have nose pads they are comfortable. I like the fact that they are not the top of the range model and hence more affordable (mine were £104, but I know you can get them for less than this online).
I am a big fan of my Ray Bans because I had them years ago and the little 'R' inscribed in the lens was something I always thought meant 'right' for right lens. Yes, I know now that it is the Rayban signature of true, authentic sunglasses!
Ray Ban surprisingly, are very popular with the younger ones, my teens all know the brand name.
When I inspect my Ray Ban 4122 735/8G I just love all the information they have hidden in them!
What To Look For
Well the codes: 4122 735/8G is the model number / frame colour / lens colour.
It should say Made in Italy on it.
At the nose piece you should have the signature 'R' and inside the lens.
The arm hinge mechanism should run all the way along this is what Ray Ban are known for.
The actual frames should look and feel quality made, you can normally tell just by holding them that they are are a fantastic quality.
What Not Too Look For
If you see Bausch & Lomb you do not have a true pair of these glasses (only older models where made by this company).
You must check the model numbers match to authentic frames.
The Rayban logo is not proof you have authentic glasses.
'Replica' is a legal term used to sell glasses that are similar and this is very common online.
These sunglasses are classy and fit lovely. I bought mine at the opticians but you can get them online. from Amazon. The colour is a red/wine colour with a grey gradient lens. They are worth every penny if you understand about glasses and know what your are buying!
Summary: Quality brand name glasses that do the job
