Almost 20 years ago, I got a pair of the 2140's but the slant made it uncomfortable to wear.

Recently, I got a pair of RB2132's in 55mm since I have a larger head. Although it fits much nicer, it seems that they are on the cusp of being a tad small for my head. I do have a pretty large bean from what I've been told. Maybe the bridge is a bit narrower. I was told if I had a hat on they look fine but with my hat off, my high n tight haircut makes the dark temple arms more pronounced which gives the glasses a smaller look on my face and head.

Didn't Ray Ban wayfarers once come in 57mm lenses or different bridge widths at one time?

I bought these: http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/ca ... d=12856142 to try them on and they fit just right. I was wondering whether the 50mm wayfarers would be equivalent to it, or should i buy the 54mm?

Hello and thank you for the post. They don't give any size indication besides the words "One Size" so I would suggest you try both. The authentic route is always the way to go.

Have Fun!

I just had a tech from Ray Ban reply back too me. He said the New Wayfarer RB2132's in 55mm is the largest they currently make but also told me that they had a line back in the 80's - 90's called the Wayfarer II that had a larger frame for larger heads. He also mentioned that the Original Wayfarer models had a more pronounced slant to the lenses and the New Wayfarer and the Wayfarer II models didn't. After researching it a bit, it seems that the Wayfarer II model is called the L1725 from the information that I've gathered.

I've replied with a few questions being what is the exact model number for the Tortoise shell frame and the polarized lenses and what's the largest lens size. The biggest ones I've found available so far are the 58mm lenses. Meanwhile, I had a few close friends tell me that the New Wayfarer RB2132's I bought look good on me so I'm not as self conscious about them being too small anymore. Either way, I like to cover my bases and will look heavily in purchasing a pair of the Tortoise Wayfarer II's if they can be found. Like other Wayfarer models, they also come in smaller and larger lens sizes.

Good Hunting Everyone!

larumd wrote:The Ray-Ban RB2140 Wayfarer Guide Polarized Sunglasses were an over-sized wayfarer design with straight temple arms. Ray-Ban Full Fit Wayfarer RB2140A sunglasses were made to accommodate petite faces with higher cheekbones for a more tighter fit. Exact to the Original Ray-Ban Wayfarer in style and design; a customized fit with an adjusted frame.


Does this mean that the Full Fit style fits Asians better (i.e. little nose bridge, round face)?

Hello,
I can't guarantee it would fit an Asian better but certainly it's worth a try. Ray-Ban had that bone structure in mind when they designed RB2140A. The best way to determine fit is to try it on. That is if you can still find them, they were a limited model that isn't in production anymore.

I hope this helps.

I currently wear glasses that are 54 x 17 x 145 and was looking to get either the 5121 in 50 or the 2140 in 54. Not sure if the 50 will be too small or the 54 will be too big.

Thanks for your time!

Hello,

Thank you for the post. The dimensions you gave are 54 x 17 x 145. This means the eye size is 54mm and a bridge of 17mm. I would invite you to start with the Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer Sunglasses RB2140 in 54mm. The RB2140 has a bridge of 18mm with that 54mm eye size. That should work for you in theory. If that is too big then go for the Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer Eyeglass Frames RX5121 in 50mm.

I hope that helps you out. Let us know what you think after you try them.

Known for its protective, durable, fashionable, practical and timeless features, Ray Ban sunglasses continue to impress its clientele over the years. What made it stood out back then was the quality and effectiveness of its sunglasses in protecting the eyes against extreme light. Introduced in the 1930s, it was the first to use polarized technology.

Hello, I have a question about the foldable ray bans 4105. I have a pair of original wayfarers 2140 54mm which I put prescription lenses into. Will the lenses from the 54mm 2140 fit into the 54mm foldable wayfarers? It seems the foldable ones have less of a tilt which bothers me about the 2140's, thanks.

The RB2140 and the RB4105 have a slightly differentt shape to the lenses. I would suggest you take them to a local optical retailer and get a professional in-person opinion.
