post #2386 of 2705
Would love an opinion on wether or not these frames fit my face? I have asked a few people and its about 50/50.

post #2387 of 2705

What brand and model are these frames?  

 

By traditional standards, they are too big, however this look is now worn by many successfully and I believe you can pull this off. My only concern would be the potential need for a temple adjustment so they do not slip down your nose.  Also, it is hard to tell because of a shadow in the picture, but there may be a small gap between the bridge of your nose and the bridge of the frame.  

 

You have a face shape that can work on many frames.  If you are unsure about these, keep looking.  If you like them a lot, then go for it.

They are the Warby Parker Baxters. I mean I really like them but I also dont want to be going around wearing something that looks ridiculous. These are just the testers they sent. I need to get my eyes checked before I actually buy them. As far as the gap I cant tell either. I have a weird nose so it might be cause of that but heres a closer picture and you can tell me. I appreciate the help and opinion!

Thoughts on frame fit?
post #2390 of 2705

Brownman,

 

Frame fits well in the nose/bridge, however the bridge is a bit heavy.  The frame may be a little wide for you based upon the centering of your eyes.  The heaviness of where the temple meets the front further detracts.  I do not want to sound too negative as I think you can pull this off, but I do believe there are similar looking frames that would be a better fit for you.

Joker, based upon the close up photo, the bridge fits, but I believe there could be better styles for you.  You can also check out the many others that offer similar looks such as Lookmatic, Eyefly, Penn Avenue Eyewear and Tortoise and Blonde.  Look at frames that have a narrower frame front with a focus on the lens width (the first number in the frame measurements).

Thanks for your comments CarolinaMan, and I completely understand what you're saying. These frames are relatively large (52-21-145), and I have lost 10kg since I first got them 2 years ago (to this day, in fact). They looked better when I was heavier set because my face was wider, but now they feel fractionally wide and heavy. These are C&G 0935 sunglasses made into eyeglasses, but I think that I'll now get the C&G 0772 which is similar but smaller (50-21-145).

You should get these made into Rx sunglasses.  They wold look very good as a sun.  The 21mm bridge suits you well.  They look like very well made glasses. 

 

The 50mm eye size on the 0772 model should be a better fit.

Great thread, CityConnection!
I have a question about frame adjustment.
My mom bought a frame and had lenses put on for me as a back-up pair. It doesn't quite fit my face, so it has been collecting dust on my desk.
Basically the temples dig into my head and the frame hardly sits on my nose mainly due to the width of the frame. I can push it towards my face to let it sit properly for awhile, but somehow it can always "escape" away from my face. I guess it is because when the frame is being forced to sit on my nose, the temples are bent outward to accommodate my head width, but the lack of traction between my hair and the temples coupled with temple elasticity allow the frame to slip forward.
I took the glasses to a local optician. He took a look at the hinge and immediately told me it was impossible to adjust the width.
I have attached the pictures of the said hinge and was wondering whether it is worth a shot. The frame is made of titanium if it helps.
Thanks in advance

Hi, can someone tell me if those frames fit my face? I'm not sure. They look a bit huge, especially on close up shots. Hard to for me to judge. I would wear the glasses all day long, so they need to be perfect.

 

Would also be nice if someone could tell me if my face is more oval or heart-shaped.

too big. I can't figure out what shape you are though

What sort of frames would work with my face shape?

I usually wear contacts but I want some versatile "subtle statement" frames.  I'd prefer something that compliments my eyebrows, as opposed to overpowering them.  I also have a somewhat petite head & face.

 

Any general advice is greatly appreciated.

As I noted on your other thread you have a face shape called the "heart shape" or "inverted triangle". Basically, your face is defined by a wide forehead, high cheekbones and a small chin. Its the most difficult face to fit and eyeglass frame, too. But you do not want to draw attention to your forehead or small chin. Ideally, you want to your face balanced and proportional. For that reason, I'd stay away from round and square glasses. But you can still choose rectangular, oval, semi-round (preppy, P3 or panto) and clubmaster frames. Its a matter of experimenting and finding the style that works best for your face and personality. Don't be afraid to try out different types and you'll find something you'll be happy with. Good luck on choosing that perfect pair of new eyeglasses!

Hey guys, thoughts on this Warby Parker demo frame? I'm a little skeptical on the quality. Any alternatives you think I should check out?

Does anybody know where I can find a pair of sunglasses with a similar shape to this? RB Wayfarers are close but not quite there
