I'm curious about the letters on the ray ban codes on my rb box. Is there a way to attach a picture on here?

Hey there!

It is impossible to tell from a photo but if I had to take a wild guess, I'd say the 55mm.

Are these 2132's the 52 or 55?

I can't say for sure or not but I have a theory as to why your new pair are so much lighter. Within the last year or two Ray Ban started using a different type of Zyl (plastic) for the actual frame of the Wayfarer. This new material is MUCH lighter to combat the weight of the glass lenses for a more comfortable wear.

I think this is the reason why your older pair were much heavier, they were made with the older frame material. :D

Hope this helps!


That might be the case! My previous pair had more than 4 years.

Thanks!

hello guys,
I have a question regarding the wayfarer I would be glad if anyone can clarify me. I had on pair of wayfarer which I lost and got a new one for birthday.

I noticed that in my previous pair the lenses were much heavier than the ones in this new pair, and all my friends pairs, that have the same height as my new one. I did not recall if my first pair had polarized lens or not.

So what can be the difference in weight that I notice? I am talking about a very noticeable difference. Thanks

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Re: Ray ban wayfarer Size?

Post by larumd on Mon May 19, 2014 2:18 pm

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.

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.
