    - The 2140's are made in Italy, the old ones, 5022's, were made in USA
    - The frames are slightly different (the USA made ones are a little bigger, barely noticeable)
    - The right lens of the 2140's have the white Ray Ban logo, the 5022's do not
    - The temples of the 2140's have Ray Ban logos on them, the 5022's have metal studs

    Other than that stuff, they're not different. Both very nice sunglasses.

    nice first post - not often someone comes on their first post and gives this much detail on something

    could you take pics with them side by side that would be great
    i own the 2140 54mm would these be the same as the risky business style
    if you can take pics please do front, side anything you wanna take
    are they basically the same exact glasses minus the logos

    They are basically the same besides the logos. The old ones, you can find on Ebay for about 40-50 dollars used. They do have mint condition ones on Ebay. but they sell for the same price, if not more than the new pairs.

    are the old ones heavier than the new ones
    this is a rumor i hear because the new ones are made of different plastic
