5.0 out of 5 stars Ray-Ban RB 2132 New Wayfarer sunglasses, November 5, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I owned my first pair of Ray-Ban's about 20 years ago and decided to get another pair after recently seeing them advertised in a Brooks Brothers catalog. Their price - $109.00, Amazon (through Eyewear Everywhere - $75.94). I purchased the "New" Wayfarer with the sleeker style - not as obtrusive as the larger style can be. I purchased the 55/16/145 based on a review I read that stated that the 52/16/145 were too small. When I received them, I found the "55's" to be way too big. I consider myself to be an average sized male and the "55's" were practically sliding off my face. I sent an e-mail to Eyewear Everywhere, contacted a representative, and within a week had a pair of 52/16/145. The fit was remarkably better and I am more than pleased not only with the new pair, but also the customer service that was very pleasant and expedient! Enjoy your new Ray-Ban's, but consider the style and fit before purchasing.

Dave says:
The numbers 55 and 52 refer to lens size and have nothing to do with fit...unless the bottom of a 55's lenses are hitting your cheeks; then you'd want to go with the 52mm lens (without adjustable nose pads, there's no way to compensate for this with a Wayfarer). The difference in fit between the two glasses most likely has to do with the fact that Wayfarers are hand made, which means there can be slight variations in fit between otherwise identical models. The reviewer just happened to get a pair of 52's that fit better than their original 55's. This is one argument (the other being the obvious exposure to purchasing fakes) for buying high-end glasses from a trusted local retailer; one with the special tools and expertise to properly adjust and fit non-metal frames.
