post #1276 of 2704
Any experience w/ Han sunglasses? I really like the timeless model, I'm just concerned about the quality of the lenses. Anything similar to that model you could point me to?

I like the style. It is a bit more unique than the regular "retro" styles. I think the styling is more of the 80s but it is different from the rest. It has a metal bridge and temples which is a good change from the regular chunky plastics. I like the subtle differences, they aren't huge but it gives a different image.

i like the change of pace too. good frames and it's refreshing not to see the dark thick frames every other asian is wearing. including myself.

however, i did order another pair of glasses the other weekend. toki m handmade in japan. yes, another chunky frame for me. this time with a wider brim. killer glasses. total 530 including lenses and everything but ill be paying only 95 out of pocket due to ins and the optometry girls who always give me a discount (regular customer)

I don't have much experience with them. Maybe someone else can help us out here...

Toki are very well made. The quality of the structure is amazing. I don't think the brand has evolved as much as other brands but they stay true to keeping quality control very high.

thanks. yeah i read a bit about toki while back and then my optometrist started carrying them. the one i got is really bold and seems to be very well made.

the inscription on the ones they had all say "handmade in Japan" for most of them, but on mine and one other pair , they only had Japanese characters. i didnt know what the differences were except for they were all different styles of course and the workers there couldnt help me on that as well. anyways im really excited to get my pair.

From what I understand they are all made in Japan. Even if they aren't made in japan they are probably assembled in Japan and most importantly they will have quality control in regular facility. I don't think they would allow an outside contractor do their quality control.

Looks like my Q got overlooked, I'll try again...

What are some good brands/pieces for someone with a large head/face?

There are tons as most company will make various sizes. Find a frame that you like and ask if you can get it in a larger size. I don't know of any companies that specialize in large eyewear though. Well, to be fair, there are a few but nothing worth mentioning.

Sorry for being so vague but you'll understand when you go visit a shop. There are SO many frame companies and so many shapes and sizes.

If you have something a bit more specific though, let us know....

right. you cant just throw out a general question like what fits my bigger head. you have to just go out there and try on a few pairs that you can find.

CC,
How do Salt polarised lenses compare to Maui Jim's?
After several pairs of MJ's, I'm looking for something different.
Thanks

Salt makes virtually distortion free lenses. They claim distortion free, I say less distortion. I believe all of their lenses are glass which improves optics. ALso they have gradient polarized lenses which is a bit unique. I think the biggest difference between Salt and MJ will be the styling. I'm sure you can tell the difference but MJ is more of the sporty water sports kind of look whereas the Salts are more of a classic look. MJs will probably fit more snug for sports and also a bit lighter with their evolution poly lenses, but if you are mostly driving either one will be a good choice.

I would say to go with which ever one fits your application.
