Wayfarer sunglasses by Ray Ban were first manufactured in 1956.  They are said to be the best selling sunglass design in history.  It's design was to rival the Eames chair and the Cadillac tail fins.  Wayfarers were a radical shape for the time and gave an air of dangerousness...

They had a resurgence in the 1980's and now they are back again with a vengeance!
