The G15 is the green lens. Also, don't get Wayfarers.

This is a very unique look. I also suggest going with a pair of knee length cargo shorts and some slightly messy hair

For me the wayfarer+boat shoes look is fray guy. And down here the single first rule you learn when you join a fraternity is "Don't wear cargo shorts. Ever."

$14 Ray-Ban knockoffs from Urban Outfitters?

Audrey's wearing Manhattans by Oliver Goldsmith. They aren't Wayfarers.

Looking on ebay, how can I tell if the wayfarers are the 50s or the 80s version? Seems the original 50s vintage are the B&L 5022 and the 80s is the B&L 5024 but this is only the lens I think? None of the ebay auctions list any other model number to tell which is which.

5022 and 5024 refer to different sizes. The only difference is the number of millimeters between the lenses (i.e. the bridge width). The lenses and arms are the same between the two.

Generally the older glasses have the model number on the inside of the frame above the right lens, while the 80s ones have the number on the arm. And of course the more recent (2000 on) have the RayBan logo on the arms where the pins were on earlier models.

The 2113 has flex arms. The proportions are much closer to the 2132 - the lens shape is smoother, and they're more perpendicular between the frame and the arms where the original 5022/5024 and the "new original" 2140 have an acute angle between frame and arms. The 2113 was discontinued a couple of years ago.

hello guys,

 

I have a question regarding the wayfarer I would be glad if anyone can clarify me. 

 

I had on pair of wayfarer which I lost and got a new one for birthday from my girlfriend. I noticed that in my previous pair the lenses were much heavier than the ones in this new pair, and all my friends pairs, that have the same height as my new one.

 

I did not recall if my first pair had polarized lens or not. So what can be the difference in weight that I notice? I am talking about a very noticeable difference. 

Thanks

Depending on the age of the your old pair, they may have been glass lenses, while the new ones are almost always plastic, which is much lighter.
