I've been sporting my wayfarers for about two years now so it makes me disappointed to see them becoming popular. I did just pick up the same white pair as is displayed on the first pair of this thread and LOVE them, although I really have no idea what to wear them with.
I know that the local thrift/cheapie stores around here got rid of about half of their aviator stock and pushsed wayfarer-esque looks so I'm sure they'll be big among frat boys starting next year
i love them they are so iconic!! a bit johnny cash cross andy warhol, blues brothers, tom cruise. so masculine! LOVE THEM! they just seem so refreshing right now, the antithesis to the oversized~
I have 2 pairs in white and tortoise shell- vintage raybans. I thinkt the title "wayfarer" exclusively refers to raybans, though I may be wrong? In some vintage stores they are over $100. I think perhaps chloe seigny kickstarted their comebaack with her white pair a year or 2 ago? though they do seem to make a shortlived appearance every decade and then fade int obscurity again shortly after.
I noticed these a couple of months ago. Never knew they had a certain name, but I suppose it makes it easier to find a pair now. Surprisingly enough, I really like how they look on Sienna Miller.
