Ha well i'm just asking in general...

Im still looking for a pair of sunglasses i like well enough to keep... have a narrow face and a somewhat tall head and a larger but thin-ish nose light skin blue eyes and blonde hair... though its thinned out enough recently that i decided to buzz it off.

Sometimes I think its the lack of hair that partly screws with my workable sunglass options. I feel like if i still had hair my options would be a little better.

And yeah... in general. Fair skin/eyes/hair(or lack of) - tortoise colored frames.

Like i've found that aviator styles are difficult for me to pull off... and color has some to do with it. Silver/gunmetal frames i can pull, gold/black i cannot. Doesn't look good.

Etc

You would be surprised. You'll have to try them and see if they look good. Technically, brown and tortoise are not supposed to look good on me, but they do look good. Try Persol 2720-S. I have a pair I am looking to sell cheap if you're interested.

i agree what the guy above me said,i also have a clean shaven head and i think they look good on me (also im probably the whitest guy you ever met,i burn easy)
FYI in the pic the frames look much lighter then they really do,im guessing because it was photographed in a studio setting etc.they are actually much darker...thats another cool thing about them it kinda ajusts to different shades of tan,brown etc.
im normally not a fan of Ray bans,i like em enough just never bothered to buy them (previous pair was a pair of Aviator Guccis)
they are very affordable ($200 range as opposed to Gucci<Tom fords etc) made in italy,only thing is they are not polarized because the lens is graded.

I got the rayban new wayfarers in both black and tortoise in the smaller size 52... i think sunglasses just dont work on me at ALL haha They don't look right even though they fit my face (the 55 would be TOO big) ... though i will say that the darker tortoise color itself looks good on me. Ugh I thought wayfarers were supposed to be like the universal style but even THEY dont work on me. Lamesauce.

Can anyone please suggest sunglasses that would look good on a small, round face? I am looking for shades that are not that bulky and don't have huge lenses. Thanks for any replies.

Thanks for any replies.

I'd look into Maui Jim and Ray Ban, the sportier rimless styles with thin flexible arms.

Hi everyone, can anyone help me find a source to purchase a pair of Persol Caravan Sunglasses. I can't for the life of me find any online sites that sell them. The only site that has them is on www.my-wardrobe.com, however they are sold out. I live in Canada, which makes it a little tougher. Any help would be greatly appreciated.



Thanks,
Lou

How would we take advantage of this outside of having friends that work there?
