Sunglasses for a Small Head

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Can anyone recommend a brand of sunglasses that fit a small head?
Everything I try on in the stores sticks way out.
I wear a 6 3/4-6 7/8 hat size.

My friend swears by this model of Serengetis:

He's got the same cap size as you. I'd give em a try.

Small head here. I love my Serengetis - I currently wear the Passport and Berkley models and really liked the Envoy before I lost them.

try searching on the net

there are stores who are making sunglasses base on the size that will surely fit you

they will measure the exact size thats right for you

the only disadvantages is it will take a long time but dont worry its not that long

You can always buy small glasses and put in sunglass lenses. There are a lot of companies that do it. They take the glasses, put plano tinted lenses in it, and voila! a sunglass frame that they sell for more expensive! hahaha....

I really like the Thornhill aviator sunglasses from Oliver Peoples. They are a great aviator style, but in a slightly smaller size, so that they don't look massive on smaller faces. Check them out: <a href="http://www.awesomeeyeglasses.com/index.php/thornhill-2-sunglasses-frame-oliver-peoples.html"</a>

Thornhill aviator sunglasses from Oliver Peoples are 'not' small. The bridge is wide and lens is a sort of egg shape so they look wider than a normal aviator. It's technically a large frame. 142mm which closer to x-lrg. Almost all O.P. sunglasses are large or extra. The O.P. eyeglass line is smaller. Mykita makes some medium size frames, the lens are large but the bridge is small. Dior Homme & Christian Dior have smaller frames. Mosley Tribes has some smaller ones. Ray Bans which is probably your best bet. Make the same style in different sizes. Persol have some smaller ones. ***Buying an eyeglass frame - adding a tinted lens was good suggestion above. Best thing to do is take a frame that fits and measure it. The bridge and eye size and the over all width are most important. You can usually manipulate the temple so it will fit. http://www.simplyeyeglasses.com/help/frame_size.php Some sites list glasses by frame size: unitedshades.com

you could always try those "mini" aviators ralph lauren made two years ago, they looked good but to me they seemed "build a bear" sized. I see em on deep markdown at filenes basement/off 5th/ last call all the time.

I think I've seen some sunglasses that fits for a small head in http://www.sunsetsunglasses.com. You can find lot of sunglasses there, including replica oakley sunglasses. I think the prices of sunglasses there are very affordable.
