    Maybe, but you look like a serial killer in training.

    I think you should give up on glasses and either go the way of LASIK or contact lenses.

    They look like a shield you use for protecting your eyes when catching (in the edmorel definition).

    generally, the rule is that the frames are the same width of the head so that when the temples go back, they do not bend outwards. In other words, the frames should be the same shape on your head as they should be sitting on a table. The "temples" are what the things that go over your ears are called. The temples should be as parallel as possible while on your head.

    I think they look alright and it's a minor point. I think you're on the threshold of just right/too small. If you like em, go for it.


    +1. It's not the circumference, but the width of the frames that is the issue. But it's a minor point. The style looks good.

    i like the round frames, but the pair you've pictured is far to narrow for your head conne.
    ever think of a thin metal frame instead?

    And if I size up to a 45, the circumference would stay the same, right?

    So, they're here. These are the 45s, not 41s like in the other pics. Excuse my appearance as I just mowed the lawn. They haven't been fitted yet, so they are crooked, but you get the idea I think. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Haha, what happened to our recent constructive criticism? [​IMG]


    I think these are a more appropriate size.
