I'm so excited, I finally found an optometrist that didn't have some weird exclusive deal not to sell generic lenses in Ray Ban frames... I'm now awaiting my classic wayfarer rx frames and I'm sooo excited (can't you tell)! Just in time for back-to-school. I love them to death. I hope to keep them for a really long time. I definitely think they are classic and not a trend, imho.

I don't like them for they're one of the hipsters must-have right now... but I guess they can look good if worn with other outfits...
I personally prefer more feminine shapes for girls, though.

What do you mean by "feminine shapes for girls?" I'm just curious, I suppose the wayfarer is a bit androgynous and masculine in frame.

Exactly, or at least that's how I see them... By 'more feminine shapes' I mean something like these:

Is it too late for me to buy the ray bans with the subway print or comic print on the inside? Anyone know where I can find a pair?

I saw them in the mall maybe earlier this year or maybe late last year. I really liked them but chose to pass and now I regret it

I ended up buying a pair back in March (below)



One thing I like about Rayban, they are quite cost-effective. I am for sure going to buy another pair soon.

Thanks

I am actually surprised. I have only seen one person so far in Montreal wear the same glasses. Not sure if they are for sale in Sunglass Hut in Canada or not

There was another pair I liked, but my friend bought the last pair that was at the airport. Plus they didn't suit me

Hey guys..I know that someone must have asked this question before but I want to buy a pair of Wayfarers but I'm not sure about the sizes (I've checked in several websites) but I'm a bit confused.
For example, what's the difference between L/M?
RB 2140 54 mm lens size (large?)
RB 2140 50 mm lens size (medium)
RB 2132 in 52 mm lens size (small)
Can these measures be used to buy the RB 2151? or the 2143?
TIA!

The mm is the size of each lens across. So the bigger the measurement, the larger the frames. So it depends on what size you think would suit your face. I wear the medium size (50mm) in RB 2140. 47mm is small and 54mm is the larger size. These same measurement options should be available in the other frames too.
