The Ray-Ban 3025 Aviator sunglasses arrived today, What I received was undoubtably the REAL Ray-Ban product: packaged in a Ray-Ban box with sticker on the end including the ‘Made in Italy’ statement and including the Ray-Ban sunglasses case, a small ‘manufacturer’s information note’ paper that is written in no less than 24 languages (!!!) – and I’m not joking (I counted). Plus a small marketing brochure ‘The Icons’ telling the story of Ray-Ban, and finally a lens cleaning cloth with the Ray-Ban logo. The sunglasses themselves have the Ray-Ban logo etched on the right lens prominently, and very subtly etched on the left lens.
Now to the sunglasses themselves. I think that there are a few things to know, for someone considering cheap Ray-Ban sunglasses:
The quality of these sunglasses is apparent from the first moment when you remove them from the case. The frames are very high quality, and the gold frame in particular is finished to a high polish and looks absolutely fabulous. The gray frame is less distinctive but equally handsome. I haven’t used them in the sunlight for long enough yet to be able to know the difference between the polarized and non-polarized lenses, but my expectation is that the polarized lenses will be my choice for the brightest days and outdoor use, particularly occasions such as on the water. Both glasses provide a good degree of sun protection without darkening my vision overmuch. And both provide the UV protection that my eye doctor told me to get.
They come in a very wide variety of frame sizes, lens tints and colors, polarized and non-polarized. And with different frame colors and finishes. If you are not already familiar with these sunglasses and know what you want. Then my recommendation is that you first go to the Ray-Ban website and familiarize yourself with those variations. Especially if you think that you will want something other than the Traditional Gold Frame, Green Lens sunglass. Once at the Ray-Ban website, select ‘customize’ at the top, and you’ll find yourself on a page where you have the full ability to vary the choices I’ve summarized below. These variations can all be found on fake Ray-Bans outlet although navigating. Through all of the sellers and product pages on it that list the different variations of these sunglasses. It can be very time consuming and confusing.

———– Shooter RB3138 (with ‘brow bar’ or ‘sweat bar’ and a small circle just below the brow bar. Also the lenses are placed closer together than other Aviator models): available in 58 09 135
once you have figured out what you want, then the complexity is reduced. And it’s simply a matter of determining which seller is offering the best price. My own choice was to purchase from replica Ray-Bans sale, not from a third-party seller. And I actually ordered two different pairs of sunglasses because I wanted to try both the polarized and non-polarized lenses. And the choices I found also had some variation in frame color that I thought would be worth checking out. I therefore purchased for myself, from online store, the following two pairs:
Ray-Ban Men’s Aviator Large Metal Sunglasses, RB3025, 58mm, polarized lens, grey frame, 135 mm temple
Ray-Ban Men’s Aviator Large Metal Non-Polarized Sunglasses, RB3025, 58mm, gold frame, 135 mm temple
I think that some adjustment is going to be necessary, to the nose pieces as well as the temples, to get these to fit exactly right. I’ll take them to one of the local optometrist shops and see if I can get them to help with that. So that they are adjusted correctly.
Ray-Ban 3025 Aviator. I’m pleased with my choice.
