    hi guys i found a pretty good deal on a pair of lindberg frames online. the dimensions given are:


    Lens Diameter = 54mm

    Lens Height = 32mm

    Bridge = 19mm

    Temple (Arm Length) = 145mm



    is this a normal "fit" for a adult male's face? Should I go for it? The price is almost too good to pass up (~$250.00).

    Hello,

    I usually wear size 55 in Ray Ban Aviator 3025, so which size of Ray Ban Wayfarer 2132 should I look for (slim face)?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    How do metal frames from l.a. Eyeworks, Lindberg, and Mykita compare on quality and workmanship? I can get l.a. Eyeworks frames for 40% off, e.g., Bodhi II for $240 and Lindberg for 10% off. For Mykita I'd have to pay list, unless I buy on-line. Even if Lindberg or Mykita is superior to l.a. Eyeowrks, is either of them $160-$260 better?

    My prescription is -6.75 SPH and -7.0 SPH with a 2.50 ADD. My choice in progressive lenses is between Physio Enhanced and Ipseo IV Eyecode. Is the Ipseo worth an additional $75 ($460 v. $535)?

    The OP frames are a classic style. For the price and style I think they are fair, but I would call them more of a lifestyle brand than anything. I would say that you could find cheaper alternatives that have similar quality and finish but it is a matter of finding something that you like. What kind of style are you looking for?

    Lens color is a personal preference. Grey lenses will make you see colors shades darker. Brown lenses will create more contrast between the colors. Whether one color is better than the other is a personal preference.

    54-19 is average for a male. 32 height is on the average to large size for a male. 145 is average for a male. Basically, this is an average sized frame although 32 is a bit on the larger size of the spectrum.

    You have to look at the overall size of the frame. It depends on the bridge size as well as the fitting. Just the eyesize alone is not enough to make a decision.

    All 3 lines are considered ""boutique" lines. They all have distinct styles and are very different. My suggestion would be to try them on and see which style of frames you like better. It is one thing to compare Mykita, Urband and Ic Berlin because they are all flat metal frames with an industrial look, but you are comparing frames based on price online, not style. Try them on and see which you like more and then make a decision based on that. My 2 cents.

    First off, you will need 1.74 lenses. 1.67 at the very least, if you can find a small frame. Yes and no. Will it make a huge difference? probably not. Will it make a slight difference to reduce distortion? probably. It is an additional $75 but you do get better optics. If you are going to be wearing the glasses over the span on 2-3 yrs, an extra $75 is not all that much to spare. If you change them every yr, it might not be worth the extra coin. Personally I think that if you wear them everyday and you have the money to spend, upgrade the lenses. Every bit will make a difference. If the extra money is a concern, then don't go for it. The only reason you should pick the "cheaper" lens is if you are pressed on money. my 2 cents.

    I haven't had any long term experience with the frames so I can't really give an opinion. Although, they do seem to be a boutique line. If you have any close up of a particular frame and the price I could tell you it's "value".

    What do you recommend (frame styles, shape, etc) for an asian face with pointed eyebrows?

    Thank you for both answers. I've read that 1.74 has more distortion than 1.67. What do you think?

    Currently, I have 1.67 in a (round) Lindberg Corona Air Titanium frame: 42-24-145. The weight is fine. The thickness is what it is. It' okay but I don't think I'd get rimless.

    I haven't yet looked at Lindberg this time. My current favorites are the l.a. Eyeworks Bodhi II (round: 41-26-145) and the Mykita lite Finn (rectangular: 51-17-135). My P.D. is 34/32.

    My question about the three companies had to do with comparative quality of workmanship and durability. Obviously, I won't buy something I don't like. But if I like the l.a. Eyeworks roughly as much as a Mykita or Lindberg, considering that I can get the l.a. Eyeworks for substantially less, is there a difference in durability or workmanship that should concern me? Should I care, for example, that, unlike Lindberg and Mykita, l.a. Eyeworks frames use screws?
