Prior to the Ray-Ban Cockpit, Ray-Ban wearers who loved the Aviator style but were unable to pull off a deep, rounded frame had no choice but to shop more convenient styles, such as the 2132 New Wayfarer, or the previously mentioned Cockpit. The savvy amongst us purchased a smaller Aviator with a light gradient lens to off-set the deep slab of G-15 tint, but again, this was never really scratching that ‘aviator itch’. Maybe, we have a solution.
Introducing the Ray-Ban Colonel, an aviator inspired frame that has a deep lens housed in a rectangular wired frame. This is a master piece of sunglasses design; simple curved lenses, classic Ray-Ban frame balanced perfectly by a distinctive top-bar. Although clearly not an aviator style, this frame has an aviator ‘feel’, especially when wearing. The lenses feel unrestricted and open, vertical vision is clear and the curved lens, although slight, feels vast and spacious. The classic Ray-Ban nose pads (as found on the Aviator 3025’s) perform effortlessly and are adjustable for a tailored fit. The range of colours is more than adequate with the 001 gold frame and crystal green lens being the stand-out model. Unmistakable Ray-Ban design that will remain a favourite frame for many years to come.
