Japanese consumers show interesting habits, as their choice of Ray-Ban frames appears to be more practical. Four of the top five models in the Japanese market 2013 were Ray-Ban RB4105 Folding Wayfarer® sunglasses, whilst in other countries these models do not make it on to the top-sellers list. The United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Switzerland appear to prefer the Ray-Ban RB4165 Justin™ model in black, whilst Australia, Sweden and Denmark favour the Ray-Ban RB2140 Original Wayfarer sunglasses. The black Ray-Ban RB2132 New Wayfarer and mock tortoise/arista Ray-Ban RB3016 Clubmaster® frames were the best-selling models in Germany and Canada. Furthermore, German consumers have a tendency to choose Ray-Ban Active™ sunglasses, which are not as popular in other countries.

The only countries that vary from this pattern are France and the USA where Ray-Ban models account for around 10% of the top sellers list.
