Folding Wayfarer vs. Original Wayfarer

We have gathered here 5 legitimate reasons that makes Folding Wayfarers better choice of sunglasses than its iconic “big brother” Original Wayfarers.

  1. No tilt! The biggest factor is that Folding Wayfarers don’t have tilt unlike Original Wayfarers. Most people have high cheek bones or fuller cheeks and that’s why Originals don’t sit properly on their face.
  2. Portability! Ray-Ban RB4105 is extremely compact. They will fit almost any pocket once folded and these sunglasses comes with handy sized leather case for keeping them unscratched.
  3. Practicality! Folding Wayfarers can be always folded and tucked away. It removes the temptation to wear them perched on the top of your head, which is by the way one of the most substantive cause for people breaking their sunglasses as they may easily drop on concrete.
  4. Price! You will definitely get more value with folding sunglasses compared to regular shades and the fact that Folding Ray-Bans cost about the same as non-folding Ray-Bans, makes them a real value for money.
  5. The Wow effect! The way that these sunglasses fold is always a conversation starter. They are so top quality frames that people can’t even see from where they fold together.

NOTE: If you use to spend time near water or drive car a lot, always purchase Polarized version of Folding Wayfarers to block uncomfortable glare.
