Let's talk a bit about a classic pair of sunglasses - Original 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.

Great value
March 23, 2012

This is my second pair of Wayfarer (first ones I used them for more than five years w/o any color deterioration even though I always brought them to the beach), and they held their shape through the years (I just happened to lose them!) . You can count that the black (my choice) will hold!. The quality of the material is excellent and much better than other very expensive designer choices. I believe it is a classic versatile choice... You can wear them on any occasion... with suit or with trunks and you will not feel out of place. I have a large octagonal face and the square shape works out great. You can use them at the beach or even when you ski since the large shape will properly cover your eyes. I would not recommend this style for people with thin noses or skinny faces.

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever

Theser are the best sunglasses I have ever owned. I also own the New Wayfarer but these look much better! (worth to pay a bit more). A classic! Got the Tortoise w/ G-15XLT Lens, it is a dark frame (darker then pictured) and in my opinion prettier then the black frame, especially for a women and goes with everything. I have a normal sized face and would not want them any bigger then 50mm also. A great buy!

Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Ease of use, Great value, looks great

These glasses are great. The retro look is classic. The pop of color on the inner lining is fun and adds character. The glasses can mold to fit you as you like. The case is durable and will help insure your glasses a long life, maybe for another fifty years.

Pros: Great design, Ease of use

The glasses are great! They were a gift for someone and they absolutely loved them. Arrived in perfect condition and have remained in great condition (even after being dropped). The color is crisp and bright. They look good on everyone.
