Thank you for the post. You would have to know the size of his head to determine that. However the exact model is the Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer Sunglasses. They are available in the 50 and 54mm sizes. BTW, really good movie!

The RB2140 is the exact replacement to the Ray-Ban Wayfarer from the 80s! The differences are subtle. Almost nondescript. Ray-Ban did a terrific job paying homage to the model that started it all!

The current ones have spring hinges, that's all. Please contact me at 1-800-504-5897 ext 320. We can discuss the RB2140 at length. The are called the original wayfarer for the reason that they are the same as the Original!

Looking forward to hearing from you.

I have not heard anything regarding the weight of the sunglasses. The Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer Sunglasses RB2140 is made of ACETATE which is light weight and durable.

In stock and ready to ship!
