New Ray Ban Wayfarer
on May 21, 2013
Order processing and shipment was as expected. The product arrived in the time frame promised and in its original Ray Ban case. I recommend this retailer.
As for product quality, Ray Ban quality in my view has degraded from the days of Bausch & Lomb. The new Italian owner, Luxottica has cheapened the brand by using cheaper material while keep raising the price. Having said that, the Ray Ban brand still carries a cachet which appeals to Ray ban fans like me.
This new Wayfarer does not have the same quality in workmanship and material as the original. However the frame is rubberized which is flexible and good for outdoor activities. I purchased it for my wife who happened to like the colour and the rubber aspect of the frame.
The price on this site, $86.70 was reasonable. Otherwise, the same product at $135/$138 at Sunglass Hut, Ray Ban' own website as well as other e-tailers in my view is overpriced and not worth the quality of this product.
