I'm pretty sure they're black, cause Sofia always wears her black original-sized Ray Bans...

I really want Kirsten's tortoise shell wayfarers, but a vintage pair. The cheapest ones on ebay are usually broken or really scratched, and I've seen those go up to $40!

My mom has a pair that she said I could have, but I'm still trying to decide if I can pull them off. I haven't seen a single person where I live wearing them, so they're still fresh. I really love the look on some people though.

I like this look quite a bit, but I'm weary about it becoming too trendy. My grandpa has an old pair that is gold, I think they're great. If I do end up having a pair of these, I'll wear them for myself, unless I start seeing people who will make me regret it, but by then I'll be laying low for a while

I purchased some almost two years ago. But the new frames are alot smaller then the original size. Where can I find the original sized wayfarers?

ashley olsen wore these back at the start of 2005. i pointed this out twice to the rest of the mka tfs forum thread but no one noticed. anyway i've been wanting a pair ever since and i finally bought some in July of this year. I wear them all the time and i am yet to see any young people wearing them. I've seen one old man!Ha!

Does anyone know if MK & Ashley have the Wayfarer original or the Wayfarer II? Keeping in mind that they are small girls & the original might look larger on their face... what do you think?

The sunglasses pictured in the first post are the original Wayfarers. The Wayfarer IIs have larger lenses and thinner frames but have the same basic silhouette. The IIs also say "RayBan" on the sides instead of the classic dashes (which I don't really like).

I know that the style number of the originals in black is 5024. I own a pair that I got off ebay and they're in pretty good condition. These days they seem to go for about $50 on ebay.

Vuarnet PX 006s are nice as well if you're looking for another vintage style that is sort of similar. Vuarnet is a skier brand based in France. I prefer the wayfarers though, because of the history.

There really is nothing like a pair of good vintage sunglasses... It really completes the look.

I got a pair of Wayfarers for Christmas and I love them! So much better then those trashy looking bug sunglasses which everybody seems to be wearing. Does anyone know where I can find a pair of white framed wayfarers?
