    Men's Sunglasses

    Weather is beginning to perk up and I'm thinking about getting myself a pair of decent sunglasses

    Does anyone on here have any favourites?

    At the moment I'm leaning towards the wafarer because you can't really go wrong with such a classic shape and style

    However I'm not sure whether to go for the "new" wafarer 2132 or the older and much bigger 2140s

    Thoughts?

    I'm currently wearing Ray Ban Clubmasters, Wayfarers are everywhere and I think both styles suffer quite a lot from cheap remakes, I've seen very few real Clubmasters. In the future I'd like to get some of these:

    FYI The 2132 comes in a bigger size which is about the same size as the 2140. Looks a lot better I think on most men. The Smaller 2132 is tiny.

    Totally agree with you on this. I'd love to get my hands on that Steve Mcqueen glasses.

    I own the Wayfarer 2140 and Aviator 3025, both are awesome! I think the newer 2132 are a bit girlie compared to the 2140.

    Bit of a side-question but are there any general rules/guidelines on face shape and style of sunglasses?

    For example, if I'm not mistaken the Wayfarers tend to be wider at the top and vice versa for Aviators.

    Why buy a Ray Ban clubmaster? It isn't like a wayfayer, that is their design, they just produce another brow line ripoff.
