Let's talk a bit about a classic pair of sunglasses - New Wayfarer Sunglasses. The Ray-Ban Wayfarer was introduced by Bausch & Lomb in 1952 and was an instant sucess has been a style icon ever since. The shape and design of the sunglasses took advantage of recent advances in plastic technology and represented a bold contemporary style. With celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and Kim Novak publicily wearing the Wayfarer in the 50's, Audrey Hepburn wearing them in "Breakfast at Tiffany's," and icons like Bob Dylan, Andy Warhol, Roy Orbison, and JFK wearing them these sunglasses became a classic. The Ray-Ban Wayfarers of the 2000's are slightly flatter and are have the model number 2140. This is imprinted on the inside of the temple. They also have a script Ray-Ban emblem on the lens and on the outside of the temples a feature on some of the earlier models but not all, especially those from the 80's era. These also come in many more color combinations, some a little crazier and bold than others.

Durability with style
February 10, 2011

I have dropped these sunglasses more times than I can count now and although they do now have a few scratches, they always come up like new. I've gotten many compliments on my stylish new shades and would definitely recommend to a friend.

Pros: Great design, Cons: Cost

Absolutely best sunglasses!
January 06, 2013

First off, I'd like to say that I have never been the person to spend more than $15 on a pair of sunglasses. But these sunglasses are most definitely worth the money! These wayfarers have a solid feel and I love the color selection. Combine that with Altrec's return policy and you have the perfect pair of shades. Buy a pair you won't regret it!!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Cons: Cost

Neon Yellow Wayfarer.....totally 80s!
February 05, 2010

Picked up the yellow version. Wasn't sure I'd be all about them, but they SCREAM 80s! A big hit in the local pubs. Did I mention how darn fast they shipped? $8 hours after my order I had them...with free shipping! Thanks Altrec!!

love these sunglasses
July 09, 2010

they shipped very quickly and i received them in about 3 days. i love them, they are so cute, i got the tortoise color. i did however have to get them adjusted at target, they were a bit too wide, but this was not a big deal, it was to be expected.

These glasses have not let me down yet. I've owned for a couple of years now and could not be happier. Highly recommended. The 55mm polarized fit my big head (typically wear 7-5/8 hats for reference). ENJOY.

These glasses are very comfortable and looking through them is just lovely. It's bright and 100% UV protective. They are not too heavy but not cheapy light either. I bought these as a gift for my husband and he really digs them. They never slip off his face either.

Necessary for the Great Outdoors!!
September 01, 2013

These durable sunglasses are very comfortable to wear and fit snug on your ears and nose. This style is a must-have and very versatile as they can be worn with any outfit and the shape fits any face shape! The sunglasses have a slight slant so they do not slip off your face. When wearing them, the lenses produce crisp images when the sun is out and protects your eyes from the sun. Be careful of where you're resting them down to avoid scratches on the lenses. The cost is well worth it for the high quality that you're getting!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, durable, comfortable, stylish, high quality, Cons: lenses can scratch

Fabulous Sunglasses
May 01, 2011

These are great sunglasses, and I like the larger size on me. The colors make them look retro. The quality is excellent, which one would expect from RayBan. They have a very substantial feel, and even the hinges are obviously higher quality than cheap sunglasses. They come with a case and a polishing cloth. A nice variation on traditional Wayfarers.

Pros: Great design, Build quality

Great shades
June 23, 2011

This is the second pair of these glasses that my husband has owned. He loves them. The only reason he's on his second pair is because he lost the first pair. Hopefully, he'll hold on to these a little longer.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, great color

Classic and durable!
November 06, 2011

I love my New Wayfarer sunglasses. Unlike the classic wayfarers they do not tilt forward, and are not quite so aggressive in the styling, so I think they look better on more types of faces, and look slightly more subdued, while still being classic. The traditional colors (tortoise and black) also go well with pretty much anything, be it jeans and a t-shirt or khakis and a sport coat. Unlike metal sunglasses they also won't get smashed or bent out of shape, and the frames and lenses are surprisingly durable: I've dropped them numerous times and I see no visible scratches anywhere! Highly recomended.

Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Performance

Awesome sunglasses! You have to buy the real deal, not the cheapo versions you can get in the discount stores. These are so cadillac! Love the glass lenses.

stylish glasses. seem to be good quality; glass lenses, which are important. the fit is better than the original wayfarers, which i think are too big for the face.
