There are some who would probably call what I’m about to say the worst blasphemy. I tell them: Sorry, but it’s true. The classic mid-20th century Wayfarers, the ones you see in vintage photos of movie stars and old family photos of your grandfather in his “damn, grandpa was cool back then “- aren’t the best Wayfarers. They’re shaped down, no doubt. But the aggressive tilt forward, jutting out the deck and forcing the bottom of the frames to sit dangerously down. near (or on) your cheeks? It’s just a pain, man.
The real star of the show in the Wayfarer range is the Wayfarer Ease. It retains the shape which is not better than the originals, but does away with the tilt so that the sunglasses fit more faces more comfortably. And because this Tuesday, for some reason the style gods saw fit to bless us, the Wayfarer Ease is currently on sale at 30% off. That means the most timeless combo – black with G15 lenses, naturally – only costs $ 112.70. (Oh, also: the Wayfarer Classic is also on sale. Same markdown, same new price. If you go for tilt, hey, I’m not going to blame you. Not everyone agrees with me! )
By no means the cheapest pair of sunglasses you’ll find. But for a true classic made even better by a smart, modern update, that’s a hell of a godsend. Please purchase accordingly.
