2132 55mm question

Postby Lola83 on Sat Sep 03, 2011 12:38 pm

Hello Liz,

I'm thinking about purchasing the New Wayfarers 2132 in black.
I have the old Wayfarers in size 50mm and they fit perfect, having said that I wouldn't mind the lenses being a little bit bigger.
Now I have read the 2132 52mm are even smaller than the 2140 size 50mm but does that affect the lenses size? Or just the way they fit into the head?

Thanks for helping me out!

Lola,

Thank you for the post. Here is a helpful way to determine how a frame will fit.

The Ray-Ban RB2132 Sunglasses are available in either 52mm or 55mm. This is the horizontal measurement across the lenses at its widest point. Both sizes have a Distance Between Lenses of 18mm. Here is the formula: 52+52+18=122mm. This means the frame will be 122mm across your face. Let's compare models now!

The Ray-Ban RB2140 Sunglasses in 50mm has a Distance Between Lenses of 22mm. 50+50+22=122mm! They might be perfect, give them a shot.
