Thank goodness for Zappos! I was initially hesitant about these: Wayfarers had made a huge comeback in the last few years, and I'd already lived through the 80s revival, so I just couldn't imagine being a part of the machine again. However, these are a truly iconic style that you cannot really argue with. The smaller size looks downright awful on my angular face, and I am used to wearing oversized vintage sunglasses anyway, so I gave this style a whirl. SO GLAD I DID! It took me few tries to get just the right ones before I finally settled on these. They are a fantastic size for my big ol' head (for such a petite gal, I have a monster noggin!), but for those who might worry about them being too large-lensed, I say don't. They are the perfect in-between size for those like myself who prefer larger lenses, but not massive for those who might feel conspicuous in "bug" sunglasses. With Zappos very liberal return policy (including free shipping), I was able to finally make the right choice after a few tries and I am truly satisfied with the supreme customer service, and my new shades. I even ended up buying another of the exact same style for my clear prescription, everyday glasses. YAY ZAPPOS. Thanks again!

Placed my overnight business-day VIP order late on Sunday night, and these glasses were in my lap before 11:00am on Tuesday. How's that for customer service? Amazing! Anyway, what can you say about Wayfarers? You know you've got a classic original when they're the only brand of sunglasses sold by Brooks Brothers. Say what you want about when Wayfarers are trendy or when they're outdated, but the truth of the matter is that they are timeless, can be worn by absolutely anyone, and are worth every penny due to how well they also shield out harmful sun rays, which is the entire point, anyway, right? Because Wayfarers are so universally coveted, they are also among the most counterfeited sunglasses in the world, so be sure you purchase from a reputable dealer! Nearly every online vendor selling these for less than this price are selling fakes. Go with Ray Ban directly, Zappos, or major, reputable department stores. Otherwise, your product will be of poor quality, and you will ultimately lose money replacing cheap fakes than if you just buy the real thing once! Finally, take care to order the correct size! There is the 47mm lens / 22mm bridge (small, mostly for kids), the 50mm lens / 22mm bridge (average, most common), and what I need, which is the 54mm lens / 18mm bridge (large). If you're like me, and have a larger head (I wear a fitted 7 3/4 hat, for instance), you need the larger ones to avoid a poor fit that won't quite look right. If you need small or large, you can't get them directly from the Ray Ban website, by the way. They only sell the 50mm version. While I prefer the original 2140 Wayfarer model, there's also the 2132 New Wayfarer model. These work best for those who don't want their sunglasses to pop out so much, and appear a bit more subtle. Myself, though, I love the original, time-tested style. To me, there is only one Wayfarer - the 2140.

Ordered these Sunday night and got them Tuesday thanks to Zappos kindly bumping up the free shipping to overnight! Love Zappos and love these Wayfarers! I've wanted a pair for a long time and didn't realize they came in two sizes. I'm definitely glad I opted for the bigger size. The mediums I'd tried on previously always felt a little small for my (oval-shaped) face. Plus, I love wearing bigger sunglasses. Thank you, Zappos, for continually being awesome!

Timeless... The Original Ray-Ban wayfarer will never go out of style and this larger incarnation is no exception. It is quite a bit larger then the medium sized one, but they still work for me. I own a pair of both sizes that I swap out based on the look I'm going for as these could be a bit more fashion forward because of the size or would be really good on the beach to block as many of those rays as possible. Overall, awesome shades. I'll be buying these in Tortoise soon.

These shades are awesome. They are classy, comfortable and not very expensive. They fit perfectly! Zappos had a better deal than Ray-Ban itself. I would definitely recommend this pair of eyeglasses.
