Ray-Ban x Brooks Brothers Rep-Striped Wayfarers

New in the Brooks Brothers summer catalog are these Wayfarer sunglasses made in collaboration with Ray-Ban.

Purists can take heart noting that the novelty styling is on the inside, not the outside. — CC

    While I’d never order them, I can respect that they kept the novelty styling on the inside. It’s like that subtle punch with a crazy lining fabric in a bespoke suit.

  2. Finally—a variation on a classic that isn’t hideous.

    Well done!

  3. I still miss the Clubmasters I left at the restroom at Railroad Ranch on the Henry’s Fork about 10 years ago. I really should replace them with something.

  4. Unfortunately, unlike the logo, the stripes can’t be removed.


  5. One of those products it’s hard to see the point of. The original tortoishell Wayfarers look fine to me.

  6. Most retweeted post ever on Twitter. I think these are going to be a hit.

    Love my 27 years old Wayfarer without the ugly Ray Ban-Logo at the sides!

  8. The stripe is nice, but I think I’ll wait for the foulard sunglasses.

  9. Considering the flood of Wayfarer variations that Ray-Ban has cranked out, I’m surprised that they limited themselves to two versions of a single Rep Style. Especially true since I would hardly consider Rep Stripe # 1 to be a season specific pattern.
