If you have the right style then you can pull those of ^, but for me when it comes to Wayfarers, less is more- can't go wrong with the plain blacks or tortoiseshell.

Can anyone tell me if these are the classic Wayfarer or the outside oversized Wayfarer (RB2140L)?

^^Take them to an eyeglass shop. They heat the ends and bend them more behind your ears so they stay on better. It's usually a free service.

Wayfarers are timeless, IMO. I don't think they will ever go out of style.

hey guys, I need some help.

I bought the red METRO wayfarers a few months back (still have the box, receipt and all the packaging) but I've decided they're too bold for me. so I did a post on craigslist offering to trade someone mine for wayfarers in black or tortoise.

I got a response from someone local today who said she wants to trade. She sent me photos of hers, but I'm a bit skeptical since they're labeled 2140's but they kinda look more like the new wayfarers shape, which is the 2132's I think.

do they look legit? any tips would be good. I know mine are legitimate, I just want to make sure I get a fair trade. thoughts? As I said she's local so I can see them in person, just want to make sure it's worth the effort.

thanks

here are the photos she sent me:

They don't look like the 2140's to me. Have her send you a photo of the arm interior - it will clearly show the model #.

they look more like 2140's in the last photo, but not in the first. But it does say 2140 on the arm interior in the second photo... should it be printed somewhere else?

Hey be really careful because it is hard to tell from pictures, the differences between real and fakes is very subtle. The things to look out for are the RB etching on the right lens, usually visible when you tilt it to the light. Also when you hold the temples horizontally, the front should tilt in at an angle (the fakes don't). Unfortunately you can't really assess these things unless you have the pair in your hands!

thanks. the good news is that I'm meeting the seller in person, and we're potentially doing a trade (my red ones for his tortoise ones) and I know mine are genuine so I'll have something side by side to compare weight, shape etc.
