Re: Ray ban wayfarer Size?

Postby David Chapman on Mon May 19, 2014 9:14 am

I recently bought some 2140's in 54/18 size (frame 146mm wide across top) and although the width was good for me, the frame is too big height-wise.

I know the 2132 has a lower height compared to the 2140, but it appears the 2132 55mm model is narrower that the 2140 54mm due to the thinner frame.

What about the old 2113 54/19 model? Does anyone know the width of the frame across the top, and the maximum height of the frame (somewhere in the lens region)? Is this model wider or narrower than the 2140 54mm?

Many thanks for any help.

I appreciate the feedbback. In no way would I encourage someone to decide ideal fit without trying a frame on. It is common sense that the edges of the frames must be taken in consideration however most manufacturers do not supply that. To measure the top doesn't help either. So we are left to offer the customer a lens and bridge width measurement combination. And my reader didn't ask about the B measurement (vertical) but I would've been happy to supply that. Again, to all my readers these are helpful guides not to be used in replacement of trying frames on.

Thanks again.

The height info was more to help those looking for information as I have found it difficult to find much on what I wanted to know.

Having tried the larger 2140's (good width, too tall), my wife's 50mm 2140's (good height, too narrow), her Wayfarer I's (same as her 2140's), I can of course go out and try some 2132's in 55mm, but I can't try on 54mm 2113's as they are no longer made. So I was hoping to find out how the 2113's compare to any of the current ones (large 2140 or 2132) measurement-wise (across top, and height) so I am able to consider whether to search out a used pair.

I spoke to Ray-Ban and all the dimensions they can offer as follows:

50mm has a B of 41mm, ED 54.7mm, bridge 19mm and temple 145mm
54mm has a B of 44.1, ED is 59.1, bridge is 19mm and temple arms 145mm

They do not have a top measurement or a frame edge measurement. I hope this helps you.

Hi,

I have a 7 3/4 hat size which is obviously quite large. I'm looking to get a pair of 2140 wayfarers. Would the 50mm be too small and I'd be better with the 54mm lenses?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome and thanks for posting. I would certainly try the Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer Sunglasses RB2140 in 54mm first. Then consider the Ray-Ban New Wayfarer Sunglasses RB2132 in 55mm. If those don't work you may fall for the Ray-Ban RB4165 Sunglasses. They seem to work for us larger hat sized individuals.

I hope that helps.

What size should I wear?? I wear a 81/4 fitted hat. I think I might be SOL if I want a pair that fits comfortably

Thank you for the posts. If I were you I would start with the larger of the Wayfarers. Strat by trying the Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer Sunglasses RB2140 in 54mm first. Then consider the Ray-Ban New Wayfarer Sunglasses RB2132in 55mm. If those don't work you may fall for the Ray-Ban RB4165 Sunglasses. They seem to work for us larger hat sized individuals.

Hi, just wondered if you could advise me please - I've just got my first Wayfarers in the 2132 55, I love their shape and fit but am concerned that the arm is too long and they are slightly wide on my face - what would you recommend I looked into ordering in place with a shorter arm but similar fit? I thought about exchanging for the 2132 52, but believe the arms are the same length.

Davey,

Thank you for posting. You are correct, the 52mm offers the same temple length. The Wayfarer Sunglasses can be tricking. They have unwavering, almost unaltering personalities. Either they are perfect on the wearer or in a small way something just doesn't work. I find that they frustrate many people for this reason. I checked and there are no other size temple arms available. On the tstreet I see many people just deal with the long temple arms or other annoyances. Both models have the 145mm lens.
