    got the regular black ones from sunglassexpress (great store). I always wore aviators but I lost my good pair, vanished into thin air I think. Now I may never go back... I do not miss the skinny metal arms and frames (Ray Bans are sturdy, but by their nature aviators do not survive many accidental crushings) and the protruding nose pads that get tangled up in my hair. Wayfarers have none of these issues, just pure sun-blocking and bloodshot eye-hiding power.

    Quality and comfort is excellent, and they come with a nice snap case (mine was brown leather.. I also have a black Ray Ban case that came with my aviators, so I don't know if they use different cases/colors for different sunglass styles or colors or what. you may want to ask the seller if it matters to you) and lens cloth like all Ray Bans.

    I ordered these Ray-Ban classic wayfarer RB2140 size 50mm in tortoise with green polarized lens (902/58 for those into model numbers). This is my third pair of RayBans this year. I chose the green polarized lens instead of the tortoise/brown lens because my experience with the green lens has been that they give you a true representation of color. In fact, colors tend to pop through the green lens--the sky looks deeper blue, the grass looks greener, cars look brighter. I haven't noticed any color distortion with them.

    The good: The tortoise is so dark it looks black unless you're in direct light. The lenses are unbelievably clear. The fit is tight and the build is solid.

    I have owned polarized lenses before and I was worried about using my cell phone while wearing these glasses. With my iPhone 4s, I can barely tell any difference between my polarized and non-polarized Ray-Bans. In fact, I can use my laptop and watch my LCD TV with the glasses on. I also don't notice as much fuzziness on the windows of parked cars as I have with cheaper polarized glasses I've owned in the past.

    The frames are very thick compared to more modern styles of sunglasses but that doesn't interfere with vision.

    The bad: THREE Ray-Ban logos, although the logos on the earpiece are somewhat small and tend to blend in on the tortoise color. The logo printed on the lens itself, however, tarnishes the look IMO.

    When driving in late afternoon / early evening, I get lots of light coming in from the side. There's no wrap with Wayfarers.

    These do not fit me nearly as well as the RB2132 "New Wayfarer" glasses that I own. However, these glasses can be easily adjusted by an optician or by a glasses shop.

    RB2140P: These are the Ray Bans that I remember my dad wearing growing up. However, these are even better, because they have polarized lenses. The lenses are amazing, they make a huge difference and I cannot imagine ever going back to non-polarized lenses. This is the best price I found on these sunglasses and I searched high and low, even factoring in [...] specials.

    I don't have much to say about the shape, they are the classic Ray-Bans, not the "new" shape (RB2132) that you see most celebrities wearing. The lens slants back towards your face, they are not perpendicular to your face. I happened to like the originals, but I know that most prefer the newer lens, so keep this in mind when ordering. However, at this time Ray Ban does not make the new style with the polarized lens.

    Polarized lenses reduce the glare off surfaces and reduce my need to squint, which I love because who wants wrinkles around their eyes? I make everyone try on my sunglasses so they can experience the polarized lens and now all family and friends have been converted. If you live in a place that you need to wear sunglasses throughout the year, this is a great investment!

    These are the first sunglasses that I have ever consistently worn because they are ridiculously stylish and surprisingly comfortable. I keep the case and the cleaning cloth in my purse. They don't leave little dents on the sides of your nose, and they just look super cool.

    Classy shades at a great price. Great quality, and the polarized lenses are definitely the way to go.

    The original Wayfarer shades have a good solid feel, and a wider frame than the new style. If you are looking for the classic wayfarer style, then look no further.

    This is my second pair of Wayfarers (still have the first pair purchased in 1994!) and this time I'm trying the polarized version. Love the color, love the style, love the classic look - now made even better with no glare! Well worth the $$$ and thanks to Amazon I didn't have to pay full price!

    they arrived bent, the arms were uneven, lopsided, so it was impossible for the glasses to evenly on your face. not sure how this can happen, especially given they come in a sturdy case, were they preowned, returned, repackage, and resold?

    I tried this sunglasses before buying them and they were really awesome. The polarizer help so much from the glare and the frame fits perfectly on my face. The quality is excellent hand made from Italy. The problems I had with this sunglasses is that they leave red marks on my nose after i wear them because they create it tight so the glasses doesn't fall off your face. In addition, the delivery took about over a week so I wasn't too happy about that. Overall, for the price of this ray ban, you can't go wrong. This is the lowest price you will find.
