Best Invention Ever, Fold Up Raybans

Best invention ever, honestly even better than sliced bread. What could you need more on those unexpectedly sunny autumn days than to pull a tiny little case from your bag with sunglasses inside! I am so impressed with how small the case is, the size of a pack of cards. The Raybans foldout and just look like regular ones, they are nice and sturdy so only you would know their secret. I think they are really neat to have in your bag for winter as they don’t take up much space like traditional sunglasses cases. I don’t mind having a large case during the summer when I know they will be used everyday, but for the colder months I need that space for gloves, scarf and hat! Rayban Wayfarers have been my go-to staple style for many years, they are such a versatile shape and suit all faces. They are undeniably cool in a Blue Brothers way! It’s hard to believe they have been popular since they were first made in the 1950s, true style never dates. This pair have polaroid lenses too whic protect your eyes. I got these from Vision Direct who have a full range of Raybans in all shapes and sizes. The history of the Wayfarer is rather facinating, they were the first plastic sunglasses moving away from traditional metal frames. They have also been featured in more movies than you could ever imagine from Risky Business starring Tom Cruise to Robert Pattinson in Twilight. I do have a bit of a sunglasses collection but this is a style I always stick with no matter what trends come and go, I was rocking them in 2011 in this post. I really think they are up there with the style classics, are you a fan?

  1. My father used to have a lovely foldable pair of sunglasses. I remember them distinctly – 50s, tortoise shell frame and blue/purple glass lenses. Lovely peeking through them. They were also unique since foldable glasses are rare today let alone back then. Unfortunately they broke…! So seeing this post, brought back many fond memories.
