Even icons enjoy a little pick-me-up. The classic Clubmaster has been a beloved retro style for decades. Inspired by the 50s and adorned by forward-thinkers, this iconic design gets a modern update with 2 new Ray-Ban Clubmasters: the RB3916 Clubmaster Square and RB3946 Clubmaster Oval.
New Ray-Ban Clubmasters
Before we jump into the new styles, let's take a look at the original clubmaster. When it comes to icons, the Clubmaster is in a league of its own for an instantly recognizable frame. Featuring a distinctive browline, sleek metal bridge, and signature Ray-Ban rivets, Clubmaster sunglasses have been a favorite style for intellectuals and artists. Built from a mixed composition of acetate and metal, they’re comfortable to wear and graciously flattering on a variety of face shapes. These signature details and frame materials are the foundation and inspiration for the 2 new Ray-Ban Clubmasters.
As we just outlined, the Clubmaster Square maintains all the qualities we see and love in its predecessor. The differences fall simply within the lens shape. As the name suggests, we get a “truer” square shape in the Clubmaster Square. While the Classic Clubmaster is still considered a square lens, when comparing the two, the Classic has much gentler curves. The Clubmaster Square embraces its shape and has sharper lines. This also translates into a shallower lens. Take a look at that gold logo, too!
If you love the look of the new Clubmaster Square, but want crystal clear prescription lenses, the RB3916V is here to make that happen! The Clubmaster Square eyeglasses deliver the same intellectual look with the added bonus of being tailor-made to your prescription. You can even choose Ray-Ban Authentic Lenses to make sure you’re getting the iconic signature logo on your prescription lenses!
If you’re a prescription-wearer, but don’t want clear eyeglasses, you’re in luck because all of the Clubmaster sun styles are available in prescription! Check out our Ray-Ban Prescription Sun Lens Guide for tinted options!
Similar to its sibling, the Clubmaster Oval is named for its defining lens shape. This unique lens shape sets apart the Clubmaster Oval from the others in the Ray-Ban Clubmaster Collection. If you typically find angular lenses to appear too harsh on your face, the smooth oval shape is a welcomed alternative. It works particularly well on those with smaller faces, too!
An important piece to consider when selecting which new Clubmaster to choose, is the sizing. While the Classic Clubmaster is available in 3 eyesizes, the 2 new Clubmasters are available in a single eyesize. Both the RB3916 Clubmaster Square and RB3946 Clubmaster Oval are a 52 eyesize.
