I think both don't fit your face...you have a oval-shaped face. maybe you take a picture through a mirror instead of a selfie, because the wide lens of your camera is distorting your face.

read through those buying guides to buy the perfect glasses for your face.

sorry that i may sound mean, but not every shade fits every face.


So I should be looking for something with a bit less height and maybe more square? Do you have any recommendations? I'd prefer something in tortoiseshell and sub $300. It'd need to come in width 50-52.

Those were the 2994s. Thinking about the Super America since they are a bit more square and seem a bit less tall.

Oh snap, just saw it. Please take a photo through a mirror. I have the 2994s and a pair of 649, and I really thought you were wearing 649s..

What is the concensus on Jack Spade sunglasses... I had read(and heard from a sales rep) that they were made by Selima Optique who is a reputable and quality producer, but the shades on Jack Spade's site do not mention this.

Specifically interested in this model...

Anyone have this/seen in person, and would care to comment on the quality and style?

try and review them for us. But I wouldn't think these are made by Selima, Selima produces in France 100% of its parts. These would go for 200+ if they were made in France.

I want a pair of tortoise shell sunglasses. Currently have a pair of Rayban aviators and RB 4147 (big wayfarer? I don't know the name). I have a big and quite square face and the only ones I found that I think would work would be the same RB4147 in tortoise shell. Does anyone have any other suggestions? 

 

Here is a photo of my face with the 4147's.

ok, i just stumbled on to these oliver peoples genuine buffalo horn o'malleys. aside from knowing they were a limited edition from a few years back and probably were made by hoffman horn in germany, i have nothing else. google turns up nothing. does anyone know anything about them, history, value? thanks.

 

the only difference i can find from standard o'malleys is the absence of nose "pads", the plastic bumps on the frame for your nose.

Anybody here owns Maui Jim Sunglasses w/ Maui Evolution lenses?

 

I noticed that Natural Gray lenses have a darker stripe in the center of the lenses and lighter strip on the top and bottom lenses. Refer to the picture below. I wanted to know if I was outside in direct sunlight or under a shade,  or under the shade, would people that pass by me  be to see my eyes through my sunglasses ?
