Ray-Ban RB2132 New Wayfarer – $74.72 – $95.00 (reg. $119.00)
They’re classic without looking retro hipsterish, they look good on almost every face shape, and although they cost more than a pair at a gas station, they’re really not that expensive. They’re not the Original Ray-Ban Wayfarer, but instead the lighter, less chunky, updated RB2132.
Ray-Ban’s “New” Wayfarer has been around for about a decade, but until you actually put a pair on, you might write them off as too similar to the gigantic pair Tom Cruise wore in Risky Business. You’d have to have a gourd the size of Charles Barkley’s to not have your face swallowed by those originals. That’s not the case with the RB2132. They’re slimmed down, extremely well proportioned, made in Italy, & the hinges feel indestructible.
