help...Widest Wayfarers Available

Postby Widest Wayfarers Available on Thu Oct 13, 2011 8:14 pm

I'm trying to find a pair of wayfarers that look good on me. The problem is I have a very wide face.

I've been to a [link=http://www.opticsplanet.com/sunglasses.html]Sunglass[/link] Hut and have tried on a pair. The rep told me those were the largest pair they have but I'm not sure I want to trust those guys. The fit was decent but my temples when sticking out more than I liked.

Wondering if you have guys could point me in the right direction. Looking for the widest pair possible...

Hello and thanks for the post.

Here is a easy way to determine the width of a frame.

The RB2140 has 2 sizes 54 and 50mm. Take the 54+54 and add 18mm (the bridge) to get 126mm. That means the total width is 126mm across the face. The RB2140 in 50: 50+50+22=122mm. The RB2132: 55+55+18=128mm and 52+52+18=122mm. The RB2151: 52+52+21=125mm. The RB2143: 50+50+22=122mm. The RB4105: 50+50+22=122mm and 54+54+20=128. So this means the widest Wayfarers would be the RB2132 in 55mm and the RB4105 in 54mm.

I hope this makes sense. But remember the best way to determine fit is to try them on. Call me at 1-800-504-5897 ext 320 for more assistance.
