Description

The next evolution of a classic.

The New Wayfarer from Ray-Ban updates their iconic sunglass silhouette with a slightly smaller, more rounded shape. The end result is a contemporary look that still oozes throw-back style. Color options abound whether you’re looking for classic or funky, and the crystal-clear optics provide a visual experience that is distinctly Ray-Ban.

A New Classic

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I don't see how anyone could go wrong with a pair of these. They're stylish, they're an easy fit, and they block sunlight! I wear mine every day that the sun comes out. The lenses resist scratches well under normal use. I tried these against the Original Wayfarer, and found these to be a better fit for me. The larger size and extreme angle of the lens on the Originals came off as a bit over-the-top, but the News are simple and sleek.

My only gripe would be that the gloss frames smudge a lot, but I don't think there's any way around that...

Slightly feminine shape

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I feel that the New Wayfarers look quite a bit less masculine than the originals, probably since I have seen so many women who are beginning to wear this smaller style. If you are going for the classic look, I would suggest the originals. Most importantly, go to your local sunglasses shop and try the two and decide which is your style.

are these the small ones or the bigger...

are these the small ones or the bigger ones?... i bought a pair of new wayfarers and they are great but are there two different kinds?

Hey Rachel!

The New Wayfarer does come in 2 sizes - 52mm and 55mm. The 52mm is 3mm shorter across the front and has smaller lenses. Backcountry sizes the 52mm as Medium and the 55mm as Large.

My sister and I both have small-average size heads (helmet size S) and we both prefer the 55mm frame. Even though it's considered a size L, the 55mm fits my face very nicely with good viewing coverage, while the 52mm felt small.

This photo shows the 52mm behind the 55mm. The difference is not as dramatic as it looks (sorry, bad angle!).

Classic mod

The Ray-Ban Wayfarer is an iconic pair of sunglasses, and maybe even THE iconic pair of sunglasses. Sadly, not all of God's creatures look good with a "cat-eye" frame, and that is why Ray-Ban introduced the New Wayfarer.

These shades employ the same quality lenses and Italian manufacturing (thank you Luxxotica) but with toned down frame-shape for a softer look.

There will still be purists who insist that its either the original or nothing, but I think the New Wayfarer is a better fit for most people, and a better fit for most occasions.

Everyday Glasses

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I had the lens in these replaced with eyeglass lenses. So needless to say, wear these glasses all day everyday. Ive had the same pair for over four years, wearing them 16 hours a day everyday. Theyre very comfortable, and very durable. Im buying a second pair of a backup right now. These are amazing.

There's no substitute for the real thing

  • Fit: True to size

Got these for my wife. After having a few pairs of imitation ray-bans picked up in street markets in random international destinations, I can't say enough how much BETTER the real thing is. The quality is apparent and the classic ray-ban design is great.

Can't go wrong with a classic.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This is my second pair of the New Wayfarers. I change the lenses and use them as regular (not sun) prescription glasses. With simple, classic, no-nonsense design it's no surprise why the Wayfarers have been around since the '50's. The smaller size of the New version is a much better fit for people with smaller faces.

Not my favorite

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I had a pair of these but sold them to a friend on account of they didn't seem to stay on my big head, and I shaved the mustache so had no reason to keep the mystery look going any longer.

Everything about these glasses rocks! They are my go to around town. They perform equally well out in the wild too!
