The OP frames are a classic style. For the price and style I think they are fair, but I would call them more of a lifestyle brand than anything. I would say that you could find cheaper alternatives that have similar quality and finish but it is a matter of finding something that you like. What kind of style are you looking for?

The models I like: Makaha, Kanaha, Breakwall, Lighthouse, Sandy Beach.

 

Are you familiar with any of those models? Browsing Amazon, they seem to all fall in the $110-140s range depending on specific frame/lens combo you pick. For general use, would neutral grey or HCL bronze be a better choice? Thanks!


Lens color is a personal preference. Grey lenses will make you see colors shades darker. Brown lenses will create more contrast between the colors. Whether one color is better than the other is a personal preference.

is this a normal "fit" for a adult male's face? Should I go for it? The price is almost too good to pass up (~$250.00).

54-19 is average for a male. 32 height is on the average to large size for a male. 145 is average for a male. Basically, this is an average sized frame although 32 is a bit on the larger size of the spectrum.

Thank you very much in advance.

You have to look at the overall size of the frame. It depends on the bridge size as well as the fitting. Just the eyesize alone is not enough to make a decision.

For Mykita I'd have to pay list, unless I buy on-line. Even if Lindberg or Mykita is superior to l.a. Eyeowrks, is either of them $160-$260 better?


All 3 lines are considered ""boutique" lines. They all have distinct styles and are very different. My suggestion would be to try them on and see which style of frames you like better. It is one thing to compare Mykita, Urband and Ic Berlin because they are all flat metal frames with an industrial look, but you are comparing frames based on price online, not style. Try them on and see which you like more and then make a decision based on that. My 2 cents.

First off, you will need 1.74 lenses. 1.67 at the very least, if you can find a small frame.

Yes and no. Will it make a huge difference? probably not. Will it make a slight difference to reduce distortion? probably. It is an additional $75 but you do get better optics. If you are going to be wearing the glasses over the span on 2-3 yrs, an extra $75 is not all that much to spare. If you change them every yr, it might not be worth the extra coin. Personally I think that if you wear them everyday and you have the money to spend, upgrade the lenses. Every bit will make a difference. If the extra money is a concern, then don't go for it. The only reason you should pick the "cheaper" lens is if you are pressed on money.

my 2 cents.

I haven't had any long term experience with the frames so I can't really give an opinion. Although, they do seem to be a boutique line. If you have any close up of a particular frame and the price I could tell you it's "value".

my 2 cents.51-17-135


 

Thank you for both answers. I've read that 1.74 has more distortion than 1.67. What do you think?

 

Currently, I have 1.67 in a (round) Lindberg Corona Air Titanium frame: 42-24-145. The weight is fine. The thickness is what it is. It' okay but I don't think I'd get rimless.

 

 I haven't yet looked at Lindberg this time. My current favorites are the l.a. Eyeworks Bodhi II (round: 41-26-145) and the Mykita lite Finn (rectangular: 51-17-135). My P.D. is 34/32.

 

My question about the three companies had to do with comparative quality of workmanship and durability. Obviously, I won't buy something I don't like. But if I like the l.a. Eyeworks roughly as much as a Mykita or Lindberg, considering that I can get the l.a. Eyeworks for substantially less, is there a difference in durability or workmanship that should concern me? Should I care, for example, that, unlike Lindberg and Mykita, l.a. Eyeworks frames use screws?
