Ray ban wayfarer Size?
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'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!

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)?
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.

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.
