Ray-Ban vs. Randolph Engineering Sunglasses

Ray-Ban debuted with its classic pair of aviator sunglasses in the year 1937. They were initially designed for and distributed amongst World War II fighter pilots. These sunglasses gave them better protection when it came to flying in extremely sunny and bright weather conditions.

Classic Ray-Ban Wayfarer, RB2140

Initially, Ray-Ban sunglasses were manufactured in the United States of America. But, in the year 1999, the company called Luxottica acquired Ray-Ban and ever since then, your favorite Ray-Ban aviators are manufactured either in Italy or China. Many people, especially the old fans of Ray-Ban are of the opinion that the company has lost its fine touch in sunglasses every since its acquisition by Luxottica. So, if you were looking for sunglasses that were manufactured in the US, then clearly Ray-Ban is not your go-to company.

However, Ray-Ban sunglasses have been known for their wire thin frames and the classic aviator shaped lenses. Some of you may not like the thin frame, if you are looking forward to covering your temple. But, actually the stylish thin frame will look good on anyone and the nose bridges have a perfect fit. What’s more, no matter what the size of your face is, chances are a pair of Ray-Ban aviators which measures 55mm in length will fit your face perfectly. These sunglasses are available in different shades like solid black, brown, mirrored ones with bluish tint, and also graduated lenses. Depending on your face, you can choose one that will suit you best.

Now, coming to the Randolph Engineering ones, first off all, they are manufactured in the USA and only the nose bridge is imported from another country. These sunglasses have gained a lot of popularity due to their sturdier frames, which give a better and more secure fit than their Ray-Ban counterparts. Currently, Randolph Engineering holds the contract for supplying sunglasses to the American military and NASA. Although they have sturdier frames and a curvy silhouette, they lose points when it comes to the nose bridge. It will take you some time and effort to bend the metal stalks so that they it perches on your nose perfectly.

Whether you are looking for a 52 mm length pair of sunglasses or a 57 mm length ones, you will be able to purchase both from Randolph Engineering. The traditional tear drop shaped sunglasses and the new Concorde from Randolph come in the previously-mentioned lengths. Additionally, Randolph’s frames are made from 18% nickel steel alloy, which prevent them from corroding or breaking.

Both Ray-Ban and Randolph have their USPs, but choose the one that suits your face-type and style the best!

Ray-Ban Aviators vs. Oakley Plaintiff Sunglasses

When it comes to aviators, most of our minds picture a sleek and sophisticated pair of black aviators from Ray-Ban. Get that picture? Yes, that one!

Ray-Ban has been enthralling sunglasses lover since 1937 through its classic aviators and wayfarers. There is no doubt to the fact that they have been the original creators of aviators and since then it has caught the fashion world in a frenzy.

Ray-Ban initially manufactured these glasses for fighter pilots in the early 30s. Since then, men and women around the world have loved this pair of sunglasses and many brands have replicated this design. Although they were initially designed for men, but now these sunglasses have become gender-neutral and even women sport aviators with great panache and poise

However, if you thought that Ray-Ban still holds the pride of designing the best pair of aviator sunglasses, then you are in a surprise. Oakley came out with an even more impressive pair of sunglasses, known as the Oakley Plaintiff. Well, if you are thinking that it will only look good on plaintiffs, then fret not, because it will look marvellous on you too.

You might be thinking what is so great about the Oakley Plaintiff, but wait till you see its matte finish frames that fit perfectly onto your face.The frames of an Oakley Plaintiff pair of aviators are made from very light, hi-modulus C5 metal, while the hinges are known to be titanium mono-shock hinges. This means that every time you accidentally bend your glasses while lying down or they hand out of your tee’s pockets, the stems won’t come off. These hinges make the stems super flexible, so that they fit your face perfectly.

The shape of the Oakley Plaintiff sunglasses are completely different from the Ray-Ban ones. The latter stands out and there is a gap between your face and the sunglasses when you wear them. However, The Oakley Plaintiff ones are not that flat, but have a more curvaceous design. They cover your eyes properly, thereby giving you maximum protection from sunrays.

The lenses of an Oakley Plaintiff pair of sunglasses are made from 00 Black Iridium Polarized Lens, which blocks harmful UVA, UVB, and UVC rays from seeping through. For that case, even Rayban aviators are made from polarized lens, but Oakley has more patents and technological advancement when it comes to lenses.

If you love your chic, pilot kind of look then stick with the Ray-Ban aviators. However, if you would like to experiment and look stylish, then Oakley Plaintiffs are your safest bet!
