For god's sake, do not spend money on Tom Ford glasses. They're made by Marcolin, which is basically the same thing as Luxottica.

 

I don't know why you're trying on another pair of Oliver Peoples, as you said you wanted to get away from Luxottica.

 

Dita is fantastic. They're expensive, but they're very well made. Oliver Goldsmith is nice, too, but I haven't handled those frames much.

 

If you can find a pair of SALT frames that suit you, then they're definitely worth buying if you like them. Do keep looking at the line. I never thought I'd find a pair that fit me, but then one day I did, and now they're one of my favorite pairs of glasses (next to my Mykita Mylon frames). Anyway, SALT is a California-based brand. You shouldn't have trouble finding them in the Bay.

I just remembered: Gotti might have some frames that you like. They definitely make some in the size you would want, and their frames aren't too expensive--especially in comparison to Dita or Tom Ford. They make a lot of attractive frames, too.

 

They're available at a lot of stores in the Bay area, as well. Just check their website. http://www.gotti.ch/en/stores/

Those? 

 

Oh - OAMC Optics from Japan.   Handmade, superb quality.   One of the few specialist frame makers who construct their lenses with pantoscopic tilt so that the frame sits square on your face, balanced, and the lenses are tilted so that if you are really tall, you don't have to bend your head down to see short folk, or if you are short, you can look up without having messed up faints from vertiginous diplopia.    They also scallop out the frame so that even though it looks thick and solid, carved from 6mm acetate, it is surprisingly lightweight in comparison to standard acetate frames.

Just checked them out - unfortunately none of their pairs are wide enough. They only go up to 50mm

post #2947 of 2950

How large are you looking for?

 

I wear 46mm...thought 50mm was plenty!

 

Any bigger, it looks like those women with extra large goggles wearing Ugg boots lol.  Yes - in summer.

Just an FYI: lens width is not the best way to figure out what pairs of glasses will fit you. For instance, I have a pair of Mykitas that fit really well, and they are 57s. I forever thought afterwards that I'd have to find such huge frames to fit my face, but since then I've found pairs of glasses with lens widths of as low as 49 that fit me well.
