Ray ban wayfarer Size?
I want to order the wayfarer from your site, but went to try on the glasses today both @ Sunglassess Hut and Macys. One version I tried on were tilted towards my face while others were not. can you please explain? Thanks!
Could you please clarify what mean by tilted? Do you mean that one of the frams was more curved and fitted you better? Also, do you know which style it was? So, that I can pull it out of stock and compare to the other Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses.
That might be a geometry of this specific RayBan frame with thicker eye cups. If you could give me the model number, I would give you more information. Also, it might be just a defective frame. Since I haven't seen it myself, it is difficult to judge. Take a look at our Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses collection at

Probably you'll find there the model you are looking for.
Ok, here's the deal.
I went to sunglasses hut again. Tried some on.
I tried on 2 pairs, one regular, one polarized.
The ones which fit, the polarized ones, had the following on the inside of the the left arm (looking inside)
"RB2140 902/57 5022 3P"
while the ones which had the bottom of the lenses which were way more tilted in towards my cheeks read:
"RB2140 902 5022 3N"
Could you please clarify the difference? Is it just the polarized lenses? It cant be can it?
I just pulled two these Ray Ban models from stock. They look and fit absolutely identical The only difference is the lens: one is non-polarized, the other one is polarized. Probably the store you went to, has a defectived pair.
I am confused because this has been the story more than once. Some 2140's will literally be tighter than the other's but have the same frame size.
OK - say that the lenses are 54 instead of 50, would the arms be longer? Maybe that's it?
This is getting annoying. I really wanna save $ and get the right pair but this is ridiculous!
Earlier in this thread, you mentioned that Luxotica has the ability to customize Wayfarers to 150mm for the temples. How would I go about placing a special order. I know that I am looking to buy wayfarers now but the 145mm temple size seems to be the only hangup for me. Please advise on how I can special order my sunglasses. Thanks,
I apologize I have not answered your post until now. I was away for a week. If you would like to place an order for Ray Ban sunglasses with different temples, you will need to give us a call. The phone number is 800-504-5897, option 2 is for Eyewear Department. The person you need to talk to is Kristina. She will take your order in the phone.
Please note that it might take Luxottica up to 6 weeks to customize the product and ship it back to us in US. Also, since it will be a custom made order, we won't be able to take it for a refund or exchange it for a different product.
What size and model is the exact or closest to the original vintage pair. Would they have the tilt that the vintage original's have?
I would appreciate any help. Thanks.
If you still have the broken glasses, could you please check what is impinted on the temples. This info will help me to find the closest model.
I tried 2140 in 50mm and 54mm, but 50mm weren't wide enough (looked small on me) and 54mm lens are a little too big vertically.
I'm curious to know if 2132 in 55mm would be something I'm looking for? Width of 2140 55mm and vertical length of lens like 2140 50mm.
The person above me mentioned 2113 in 54mm, would like to hear some info on that too if possible.
to Guest: I would recommend you to try on Ray Ban RB 2132 in 52 mm size. It should be larger than RB 2140 in 50 mm and smaller than RB2140 in 54 mm lens size.
You say that the RB2143's are the smallest wayfarer. My sister currently has a pair of RB2140's (50mm?) and they are way too wide for my face as in the arms are very far from my face. I like the solid color of the RB2140 and honestly dont like the two toned color of the 2143's. You were also talking about the how some 52mm are smaller than the 50mm ( but I forgot the name of this frame). If you can help me out with this it would be great. Thanks in advance
