Ray Ban has given their iconic wayfarer a rugged makeover for 2015. The fittingly named “Denim Wayfarer” is meticulously layered with denim. This design is the result of two years of research, which has resulted in a high-tech layering process that gives each pair a completely unique look that will only get better with age and wear. Each pair is then finished with original rivets. Handmade in Italy, the Denim wayfarer is available in blue denim and black denim, check them out below.
