    Just been given a pair of ray ban wayfarers as a present. These are lovely but my dilemma is they have tortoise shell frames so i'm not too sure what they go with.I'm sure the colour suits me and the shape is classic but Would you guys say they look better with casual clothing or business attire ?

    As an optometrist who has sold the Wayfarer and Wayfarer 2 since the 1970's in Manhattan - they are definitely more suited for casual wear. Jeans, khakis, etc. They are also a bit "sporty" and look good for athletic activities, but I don't think they would look appropriate when formally dressed.
