The glasses that I received are the authentic, made-in-Italy, 2140 Original Wayfarer Ray-Bans. These are the full-weight model made with the thick plastic and strong metal hinges. Comes in a box with what seems are the appropriate manufacturer's labels, case, and cleaning cloth. The lenses are made of glass. I popped one out and heard the 'clink' of glass on the counter. If you get the say glasses that I did, you will be pleased. In your search watch out for the 2132's. They are flimsy in comparison. I also bought 2132's. I went to 2 different optical shops and both are carrying the 2132 and are identical to mine but all 3 pale in comparison to the 2140's.
These frames are a timeless classic. They are comfortable, well made sunglasses constructed with high quality plastic, reinforced hinges & molded nose piece. Paying more for polarized lenses is well worth the money.
Classic, classic, classic; like I'm in a remake of TOP GUN. Most importantly, they are incredibly comfortable, fit like a glove and the lenses ... let's talk about how great the lenses are. I live in Palm Springs, with 352 days of sun. Great sunglass lenses are a MUST. These lenses really block the UVA and UVB but, somehow, let in plenty of light, so the world appears clearly. Another plus: the price. I saw these SAME glasses at major retailers for at least $60 more. Overstock, I couldn't run my world without you.
