Ray-Bans or Oakley’s?
Ray-Ban and Oakleys are some of the top sunglasses brands on the market today. Ray-Ban, founded in 1937 by an American company Bausch & Lomb who worked with a medical equipment manufacturer to create sunglasses for aviators that would reduce distraction from the intense hues of the sky. Oakley was founded in 1975 by a man named James Jannard. Jannard created his business in his garage with a $300 investment! Both companies are currently owned by Italian Eyewear company, Luxottica Group.
In comparison, Ray-Ban and Oakley have a very different customer base. Ray-Bans, once created for military wear only are now seen more as a fashion based eyewear. Ray-Bans are stylish and can be worn for all occasions such as shopping, for work, to parties or to a funeral. Oakley products are more for sports-minded people and people with a more active lifestyle. Oakleys cling to your face during sporting activities and are made to endure high speed object hits.
