  • The combination of rarity and style makes the Caribbean,

    along with the Balorama, the most collectible of the 60's

    Ray-Bans in plastic. In their 1964 catalogue (shown with

    the paler G31 lens) they were described as a, "...crisp,

    clean-lined design with large lens area for maximum eye

    comfort under the sun...
    ". The colour of the frame is

    their Vertone, a rich, dark mottled brown and amber,

    which was introduced in this model later and in this

    combination of frame with the G15 lenses, you could

    have expected to pay around $12.00 for a pair - not cheap

    50 years ago. This is the larger size for men. Condition is

    excellent, perhaps never worn.
