I am sure the problem had to do with the fit. The glasses are easy to make slight adjustments to at home, but what ever it was about the fit of these, they needed a professional fitting and I was too busy to drive an hour to the nearest mall and needed sunglasses right away.
This review might not help anyone. I say go to a store and try Ray Bans until you find what you like then shop online. The pair I ended up with cost $100 on Amazon and $150 both at the official RB site and a retail store in the mall. Although people are hesitant to fit the glasses at home, they can be slightly adjusted by holding until hot tap water, then bending SLIGHTLY. The pair I ended up getting needed an almost invisible adjustment to fit without falling off.
The glasses come with either a 50mm or 54mm lens diameter. I can't say whether they're just wider or are also taller, as I haven't tried both sizes.
They also come with a choice between two different distances between the lenses: 18mm & 22mm. I guess if your head is large, you'll probably want the 22mm option.
Model Number Explanation, as far as I can figure. Haven't quite got it down, but this should be close:
The set I own now: 902/57-5022
The first set of numbers is the color/style, ie: Tortoise frame = 902. The number after the slash seems to correlate with lens type, ie: Crystal Brown Polarized = 57. Therefore, 902/57 style is a Tortoise frame with Crystal Brown Polarized lens.
The second set of numbers is a little easier. The first two numbers are the lens diameter and the last two is the distance between the lenses, ie: 5022 = 50mm lens with 22mm between the lenses.
FYI: This style, 2140, is the "Original Wayfarer" style. Others include the 2132 (New Wayfarer), 2151 (Square Wayfarer), 2143 (Wayfarer II), 4105 (Folding Wayfarer), and the 9035 (Junior Wayfarer for kids).
I hope this helps!
The glasses do fog up easily, at least on my face. I believe it's because they are closer to my face than regular sunglasses. For that, and the lack of easy explanation of the styles and sizes, I subtracted a star, but I love the way these glasses look and wouldn't part with them for anything!
<edit> The New Wayfarers (2132) differ in that the lens is more shallow, so if your cheeks hit the classic Wayfarers, they probably won't with the new style. Also, the New Wayfarers have slightly thinner & lighter plastic frames. I prefer the New Wayfarers myself, but they don't make the frame/lens combination I like (Tortoise/Brown Polarized) in that model.
<edit 2> See Amazon Blonde's comments below for a correction and clarification to the explanation above.
Also, if you like the style, but not the way the Ray Bans are constructed, Maui Jim makes a more subdued, but better-made frame with the model number MJ242, sold at Sunglass Hut. They fit me better and have spring-loaded bows, which is nice. Also, they have rubber built-in to the nose, but invisible. They also don't hit my eyelashes like the Ray Bans do.
<edit 3> I've noticed several reviews stating that some sellers are shipping counterfeit sunglasses. I ordered mine from Sunglasses Botique via Amazon, and they are not fake, as far as I can tell! They have "Made in Italy" stamped on the side, the lenses are polarized and of high quality, and they feel exactly like my other New Wayfarer sunglasses. They also have "Ray Ban" in raised script on the outside of each arm. The pictures perfectly matched the sunglasses, down to the codes.
They do have a particular fit which seems to be quite narrow at the temples and with the bottom of the lens angled in towards the cheek. I thought this would lead to reflections on the back of the lens however they seem to have some kind of anti-reflective coating - at least the polarised ones do. Anyways, best to try them for fit before buying unseen.
The Tortoise/Grey-Green is a good combination but a bit harder to find, and the polarised lens worth the extra if you live anywhere with strong sun.
