I have the RB2132 in tortoise and it's definitely not black or even close to being black: that's what I like best about it, really. Fit is great, and I like the slightly smaller frame size (even in the larger 55 mm size) as compared to the RB2140.I actually just bought myself a wayfarer too. Was torn between the Black and Tortoise like you are - but went for Tortoise in the end. I feel its an interesting twist to the black ones that are being copied by other brands. I'm not sure about the New Wayfarer, but on the RB2140 (Original Wayfarer), the Tortoise still looks kinda Black - you'd have to really look to tell it isn't.
Was also thinking about the RB2132 initially because it seemed to fit my face slightly better than the 2140, but the whole reason I decided to get a pair was for that classic look - so it had to be the 2140 in the end. I'd probably go with the black with the 2132 though.I have the RB2132 in tortoise and it's definitely not black or even close to being black: that's what I like best about it, really.

Five years ago called, it wants its thread back.
Remarks like this will not help this site grow with new users; I feel its fair game to ask an opinion between two pairs verse asking if I should be this style or not. Especially since members have taken the time to help and give an opinion.
Any other pointless comments you'd like to add Patrick?
