The history: Often confused for the Aviator, Ray-Ban’s Outdoorsman is easily distinguishable thanks to its prominent brow bar. As the name implies, the Outdoorsman was originally crafted for hiking, fishing, and shooting; the brow bar was introduced to stop sweat from running into the wearer’s eyes. Today, though, it stands as a bold style point.
Style points: The Outdoorsman is still perfect for outdoors pursuits, but it’s also ideal for fashionably adventurous rock-star types. (Kesha here has the right idea.) They’re ideal for guys with round faces: The brow bar draws the eye up, helping to visually elongate an otherwise smaller face shape.
