I'm new to this section of SF, but am finding it interesting. Thought I'd make one comment. I have long found it curious (and vexing) how difficult it is to find small-sized frames. I have a narrow face, and have learned, through trial and error, that the only eyeglasses that really work for me are 41s and 42s. For sunglasses I can go up to a 43, maybe a 44, but that's about it. Anything bigger just kind of looks ridiculous on me. My options for these sizes are amazingly narrow. I tend to gravitate toward P3 shapes, and have ended up finding some nice 41 size Kala 902 frames, and picked up a discontinued Oliver Peoples Riley model in 41 on eBay. And I have several pairs of John Varvatos sunglasses that come in 43 (although I usually replace the lenses). I've also recently become aware of Garrett Leight's Clune model frames, which I like but have not tried yet. But it is always a challenge to find small frames. I've even purchased kids' frames at times in the past, but, of course, then they are often not long enough to fit properly over the ear. It's just kind of frustrating. Anyway, just thought I would throw this out there, in case there were any other narrow-faced fellows sharing my plight.
