What Exactly Are Wayfarer Glasses?
Created over 60 years ago by a designer working for Bausch and Lomb, Wayfarer frames presented an eclectic shape resembling Cadillac tail fins combined with a trapezoid. An instant hit with the Beat Generation at that time, Wayfarers also had a hint of masculinity not seen in 20th century frames.
Although their popularity waned in the 60s, Wayfarer frames got a boost when John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd sported them in the hit 1980 movie The Blues Brothers. During the ‘80s, Wayfarer sunglasses graced the faces of celebrities appearing in dozens of TV shows and films.
