Not even close to every day, but my limited edition Samurai Black Knights with silver selvedge and arctuates are developing some mighty fine honeycombing behind the knees... but really I've had them for over half a decade now, still think they're the best denim I've owned in terms of construction and detail (but not fit, notably). No idea on washes or anything though.

Ugh, I'm currently experiencing the tension of wanting to get advice on what eyeglasses frames to get but not wanting to show my un-blanked face on a public Internet forum. confused.gif

Whelp, I've had people ask me if I was Jonathan Rhys Meyers (pre-Tudors-era steroid use, which seemed to change the shape of his face). My lips are thinner and I'm much, much less handsome, though. This might be the closest picture:



I also had a flight attendant ask if I was an actor from Nashville, although I have no idea which one and I'm pretty sure I look nothing like any of them.

My current frames are these (I think; mine are Chesterfield, not Cole Haan), which I think fit my face ok but are kind of limiting in terms of range of vision because they're so short top-to-bottom:



I was thinking of going for something similar from Warby Parker, maybe these



or these




I'm pretty open to suggestions, though.

So if I want the Warby Parker knock-off, these:

^ On the topic of eyeglasses, does anyone here have advice on lenses for people with very high prescriptions (worse than -10)? I bought a pair of frames I really liked last year (Shuron) but the distortion around the edges due to the larger lens size makes them unwearable for driving and disorienting for daily activities... really a bummer. Is my only option glasses with smaller lenses like the pairs notwithit posted?

I didn't even realize that that was a thing.

That's most of what I do anyway. Except I only wear them when I'm driving, going to a movie, or going to a meeting where I want to be able to actually see the PowerPoint presentation instead of ignoring it and working on something else.

distortion around the edges happens slightly at lower levels of correction too, but you tend to get used to it. now, also an issue w/ big frames is the potential for the ocular center height measurement to need adjustment. i went back and forth a few times w/ Warby on this. it's usually not measured because it's usually not important, but i found a friendly glasses place who ran their automatic measurement machine on me for free.

with that said, fuck yeah, big glasses.

I'm -8/-11 and haven't noticed a problem with mine. What shape are yours? Do they have AR coating on them?
post #107160 of 109053
@baltimoron I tried both the Ronsir and the Revolutions. I don't think they have AR coating because daytime glare is an absolute bitch, but still manages to be less of a problem than the distortion. (Would AR coating help here at all though?) I started with -11 / -11 but the distortion was too great, so based on my optometrist's recommendation dropped to -10.25/-10.25... and now things are both distorted and blurry.

@ghdvfddzgzdzg I had never actually considered focal height, but it makes a lot of sense why that would be important. That might be the bigger issue actually. I've had relatively small glasses all my life (from the tender age of four, rofl) so it's never come up.
