      Hello! First off I would like to say thank you for the feed back on This review. I took everything in to consideration and took time to re-construct and add more helpful information to this review. I am slowly learning about epinion reviews.  Please stay with me as I develop my review skills.  I hope that this review is a big jump from the first version. Enjoy!

HISTORY

      These thrifty pair of sunglasses are made by the prestigious company of Ray-Ban was founded in 1937 by eye health association Bausch & Lomb. The Wayfarer shape was founded Ray-Ban in 1956. Wayfarer was a instant success in the 50's. It was notable different from the other metal eyewear that was being produced at the time. 


MY EXPERIENCE/THOUGHTS

      The experience that I have had with the Ray-Ban Wayfarer was great. I personally  like the specifc style and shape that it has. These are a pair of glasses that can look good everybody. I could definitely tell the difference in quality between authentic Ray-Ban wayfarer's and cheaper imitation sunglasses. The hinge construction is solid which is important. Usually that is where suglasses begin to become weak. Not with the Wayfarer's. Their hinges are made out of durable metal that definetly hold up to the test of time. The fact that Ray-Ban has been procucing the Wayfarer for over 50 years is a selling point for me. This means that years of technology and thought has been put into these glasses. They have been put through several different tests and are still being produced and remain popular.That speaks alot about the quality of the product. This tells me that they are doing things right.I believe that it is extremely important to protect your eyes. Your eyes are very delicate and vulnerable and it is important to take care of them and make a good investment in the lens that you let you eyes see through. With all of the scams that are out there today you can't always be sure that the products you buy are promising what they say they will do. With the Wayfarer's you know that the UV protection has been tested properly and works well. This is not true for many of the cheaper glasses you can find when shopping. 

POSITIVES

      These are well made sunglasses that have solid contruction. They flatter most faces. The packaging has as good of quality as the glasses themselves. With every of Ray-Bans pair you will recieve a genuine leather case and a cleaning cloth with your sunglasses. Also, the Wayfarers High Grade plastic is a great alternative for those who maybe alergic to metal frames of lower quality. 

NEGATIVES

      Although I think that these are a great classic sunglasses to have, The fit of the Wayfarer's may not suit everyone. I have tried Ray-Ban Wayfarers that have put a little pressure on the temple areas of my face. This can get anoying and even painful after a while. So I would definitely consider trying on a pair at your local sunglass store. Make sure to remember the type of Wayfarer when you find the right one. They come in different styles; for example the "2140"'s are different than the "New Wayfarer's" which are slightly more slim lined and petite. These are not the glasses for the person who is looking for sunglasses that are rare and unique. These are pretty popular glasses that you will probably see on other people.

RETAILERS

      You can find Ray-Ban wayfarers at almost any designer sunglass store. Including www.rayban.com, www.shadesdaddy.com, www.sunglasseshut.com. There are thousands of other retailers out there that sell Ray-Bans. Just be careful because there are many fake imitations out there. 
      
DESCRIPTION 

     The Ray-Ban Wayfarer's have a rounded trapezoid like lenses with plastic frames that point out from the front in the temple areas. The temples of every Wayfarer you will find a Ray-Ban singnature in metal. This same signature is replicated on the top left corner of the left lens. On the right side of the right lens if held in sunlight you can find a etching of the letters "RB" lightly engraved in the lens. This is a authentication tell tale that many people do not know about. This etching is also found on other Ray-Ban glasses like the classis aviators. The hinge of the Wayfarers are solidly constructed in heavy duty metal compared to the cheaper imitations you may see.
