Iconic and long-lived brands are often built on the strength of their classics but as time passes, even the most traditional models get upgraded for modern tastes and the brand's lineup grows ever larger. The FHM Essential Guide is here to help you find what's good in a world of retros, re-releases, and reimaginations. First up: Ray-Ban and their #IconsReinvented collection. The American brand is responsible for more than just those Top Gun classics—here are the five silhouettes you need to consider from their refreshed 2018 collection.
This big square-edged model is Ray-Ban's option for the no-nonsense man. It's not for peacocking, but it doesn't look plain either. P10,990-14,990
Wear it with: A barong and classy leather briefcase
The most famous round glasses wearer of all time is probably John Lennon (or maybe Harry Potter if you are a child, we guess) and that is all you need to know about the direction this pair is going, you quirky vintage hipster. P9,990-10,990
Wear it with: Vintage, whatever the IV of Spades are wearing
The stylistically safe middle ground of Ray-Ban, it looks so good with anything that you can't really pigeonhole it into a certain look—that's some design feat! That being said, they've given its frame a little shrink to ride with the times. P10,990
wear it with: Anything, even nothing (at the beach)
The Clubmaster's all-metal frame topped off with those classic eyebrows is the choice for the man who likes to party. Attention is guaranteed. P10,990-14,990
wear it with: Graphic button downs, cuffed trousers, your best shoes, and your preferred drink in hand
The evolved version of Ray-Ban's most famous pair features lenses with improved visibility in any light exposure. So you can justify buying a new pair for function (or because Top Gun 2 is coming out next year and the hype is going to be real).
wear it with: Denim and a bomber jacket
