whats the difference between these three pairs of Wayfarer's...

Wanting to know the differences in terms of frame sizing and anything else I might care to know...


I'm leaning towards the original 80's ones... but i need smaller framed glasses in general. not many sunglasses suit me.

so if i were to get the 2140 whites ild want them as i guess preferably the 52mm which is the small as opposed to the larger framed 50mm medium... is the 52mm small the preferential of the three sizings?

anyways wanting to know some of the differences between that pair shown on ebay, the one on amazon, and the originals..

Thanks for the post. The first 2 models that are pictured are the same RB2140. You would need to contact the seller to see the sizes they are offering. The second frame is a 50mm the RB2140 also comes in 54mm and very rarely 47mm. The higher the frame size the wider the fit so the 54mm would be the largest. The vintage Wayfarer's are very cool, they might be perfect.

If you want to try a 52mm frame on take a look at the Ray-Ban New Wayfarer Sunglasses RB2132.

So the ebay and the amazon items are the exact same item. - White RB2140 Frame, Gradient Smoke Lense?

In the ebay item it is listed as 47mm !!

The amazon is 50mm only... so they are the same make and model just 47mm lens on the ebay item..


what is the frame size of the original vintage wayfarer 1s ?

i kinda like them more but im concerned about the frame size differences.

According to the links you provided they appear to be the same White RB2140 Frame with Gradient Smoke Lenses. The size for the original vintage wayfarer you would need to contact the seller. I can't find any lens sizing listed. However it does show dimensions of:

temple length: 140mm (5.51 inches)
vertical height: 45mm (1.77 inches)
horizontal width: 135mm (5.31 inches)

The best way to determine fit would be to try them on. Make sure they have a hassle free return policy. I hope that helps.

I contacted the seller of the original vintage wayfarers and they are 50mm also.

I'll go try on the new 47mm 2140s and 50mm 2140's at a store and decide whether I want either of them or order the 50mm original vintage ones. Leaning towards the vintage 50mm, see how the 47mm and 50mm wayfarers fit in store...

ray ban sunglasses

Postby Stephenmarble on Mon Apr 30, 2012 5:52 am

Ray Ban is considered as an iconic brand. Their sunglasses have created a niche among classical branded sunglasses since the beginning. The brand is recognized and always talked for creating two most iconic styles. First with Aviator which still enjoys the stature of most in-demand sunglasses all over the world and the second one is Wayfarer that was launched in 1952. Ray ban offers an array of choices. The moment you step into a ray ban shop or search in the web, you would probably fall in love with Ray Ban sunglasses.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has both the RB2140 50mm and the RB2132 52mm, can you provide a picture with the two glasses side by side to show the size comparison?

Would anyone know the difference between 3p and 3n? It might not be important but I have both glasses, love both but what does that last part mean?

The 3P and 3N signify the lens color and whether they are polarized or not. It's a color code.

Hello,

I also have a wide face. The only Wayfarer I can enjoy is the Ray-Ban RB4165 Sunglasses. It was the answer to all of my Wayfarer issues.

Try it on. You may be very happy.

Is there a difference between eye glasses and sunglasses? Also those only measure 124mm across where as I need something closer to 130mm. Another other suggestions?

Hello.

According to the main thread, I want you to watch this fine video comparison, that I found on youtube.
It clearly shows the differences between wayfarer sizes (50 mm vs. 54 mm).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSUsSfKq-OE

I found this movie and it helped me to make a decision.

I chose 54 mm :D And I'm very happy with it.

The Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer Eyeglass Frames RX5121 and the Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer Sunglasses RB2140 are identical is size. One is designed as sunglasses and one is designed to be eyeglasses.

Hello,

I have an Aviator (Size: 58-14-135 mm) that fits me well. However, even though 58+58+14 = 130mm, in reality, the temple to temple measurement in the spectacles is about 140mm (measured by me). I also heard from an online friend that the official hinge-to-hinge measurement on 58mm Aviator is 135mm while hinge-to-hinge of RB 2140 50mm measures 145mm.

So, can you tell me what size wayfarer (2140) I should order? 50 mm or 47 mm?

Thank you.
Stanley.

Thanks for the post. Because the Aviator and Wayfarer are so different it's hard to recommend a size. The aviator has a slight base curve of 6. Base curve refers to the wrap of the frame. The Wayfarer has no curve and is very flat. With the Aviator being a 58mm I would naturally start with the largest Wayfarer size of 54mm. Take a look at the most popular Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer Sunglasses; Black frame with Crystal Green, RB2140-901-5418.

Keep in mind the best way to determine fit is to try the frame on. I hope this helps.
