    Any one have any opinions on the Ray-Ban Folding Wayfarer 4105? Thinking about getting them in the tortoise color..

    Hello

    Can anybody please help me identify these sunglasses?
    Also, are these available anywhere as cheap knockoffs?
    They look a bit like the Ango American AA406 but with tinted lenses.

    Can anyone recommend me a good website for glasses/sunglasses with a liberal return/exchange policy? Most of the ones I've seen are very sport oriented.

    We just got a few of these in stock; we like them a lot and the style and obviously the convenience factor of being able to fold them up.

    That's a take on a classic Persol look (those aren't actually Persols). Urban Outfitters currently has the knock-offs.

    You can't leave aviators and caravans out of that list.

    One rarely-mentioned classic is the American Optical Saratoga (below). These were worn by JFK and were touted by GQ's Style Guy Glenn O'Brien as the "perfect sunglasses". They're similar to Ray-Ban's Wayfarer, but the arms are slimmer and the rims have a different shape.

    The worst part about those is they just look like $5 knockoff wayfarers to the average person.

    Yeah, they were discontinued in the 60's but they can be found on eBay and Klasik.org. I might have seen a pair on Allyn Scura too.

    I agree, that's one reason why I wouldn't shell out for them. But if I were given a choice between these and Wayfarers, I'd roll with the 'Togas (With the exception of the black/crystal/grey fade Wayfarer IIs. I like those).
