A special note when you are ordering your original Wayfarers. The 54mm version is quite large. Unless you have a very large head you may find them uncomfortable. The 50mm size is perfect for the average size head. If you order from a reputable dealer they should be willing to exchange them in the event you are not happy with your purchase. Amazon does an amazing job in policing their sellers. You want to make sure you are dealing with an authorized representative of Ray Ban. There are way too many knock-offs out there and some of them are quite convincing. You want the original real deal so if the price seems too good to be true, it surely is a fake! "Buy the best and cry only once"! Cheers and good luck with your purchase!
Update April 8, 2014:
I've gotten a pair of Ray-Ban aviators, which is what I use now. Got them for practical reasons (the earpieces don't cause any issues when it's cold out and you're wearing a beanie). I plan to use my aviator sunglasses for many years to come. Still very pleased with my Wayfarers and am keeping them as backup.
Update June 19, 2015 (edited July 27, 2015):
These are now my primary sunglasses. I've taken up sand volleyball and sometimes use them for that. These are simple, durable and comfortable to wear. Still highly recommended.
Update July 27, 2015 (edited August 21, 2015):
Sand volleyball can be tough on sunglasses, but these Wayfarers are up to the task when the sun becomes an issue. They're a bit scuffed up now, but still work fine when playing outdoors. I'm almost certain they'll last at least another season. I try not to use them much when playing volleyball, so they'll last. For general use, I have a pair of aviators.
The delivery was on time but the ray-ban box was a little bent.
Everything seems to check out. I got the brown case , but i wanted the black one.. The frame is not what i expected. The corners that touch the lens seem to be scratching off. (you can see the silver/chrome under the black finish). The frames are flexible so the lens does not seem to fit perfectly. I can see the edges of the lens.
I'm glad i got them for less than in store or ray-ban website. Hopefully they last for a while !
***WARNING*** LOOK CLOSELY WHO THE SELLER IS THAT YOU'RE BUYING FROM. I bought these from Ray-Ban them self but partnered with Amazon. If you're buying from another seller they might not be real. Also makes sure there is free returns so if they aren't what you wanted then you can be refunded and returned.
Other than that helpful hint I love these so much! They're engraved with the RB in the lens, are made in Italy and came with all original packaging! So happy I found these for $88!!!!
