I ended up ordering a set of try-on frames from classicspecs.com. My understanding is that they're manufactured by Shuron and, IMO, the styles look better. I should get them in a few days; I'm interested to see how they stack up to Warby Parker.

Holy crap - those classicspec glasses are all tiny in width. I'm not sure who they are selling to (maybe mostly women, with unisex offerings?). The biggest eyesize I saw was 52mm with a 17mm bridge. I have a medium width head and I would have to bow the arms a bit just to keep from touching my temples. Even the round frames are smaller than average - typical round glasses seem to be around 47mm. Their two options are 43mm and 45mm.

The glasses look nice though if they fit your face. Post some pics once you get them.

Like both miles and Sinclair. take your pick of how bold you want to go. Or buy two like I did last year and switch off.

i like the sinclair best but the pics don't make it easy to tell which suits your face best (and i probably wouldn't know anyway).

Thanks for the feedback, guys. It turns on the Try-On feature is limited to the United States, and I'm in Canada. I might order two or three pairs and send back the ones I don't want. Or I might just order one and see how it turns out.

For the reverse reason, the Owen, Preston and Sinclair are the worst. And the Huxley kind of works because of the thickness of the sides - it helps pull your face out. I tried on an Oliver People's frame that I think would work extremely well with your face (but I can't remember the name). If I run across it, I'll let you know.

If you think of the Oliver Peoples frame, let me know. I was considering the Deacon from a few seasons ago, but it feels like it would be similar to the Huxley.

Very much agreed. Also something about the detailed look or tortoise shell frames. Good luck deciding!
