I was very confused, going back and forth between Ray Ban's website and Amazon, trying to figure out exactly what I was getting.
Here's how the numbering system works.
The first four numbers are the model number. (4151)
The second three numbers are the frame color. (622 = black rubber, 601 = shiny black)
The last numbers are the lens tint. (59-17 = G15, dark green)
These numbers appear in grey text under the recommended price on Ray Ban's website. It's very hard to tell what you're getting unless you find this information.
The sunglasses are a little bigger and wider than I expected. (Generally glasses lenses are about 55 mm wide, these are 59).They are slightly larger than the New Wayfarer model. They remind me of the 3-D glasses that come with expensive 3-D televisions. They fit great and are very comfortable. They block a little bit more of your peripheral vision than wire-framed sunglasses, but much less than most modern styles, so they don't interfere with your ability to drive.
