    Hi - looking for some advice. First time I'm buying glasses, I think I'm looking for one with frames but not decided yet.

    The only issue is that my face is small and almost every pair looks gigantic when I put them on. In the Cutler & Gross store, I went for the smallest pair available (example 2), which almost seems to be the right size for my face. I'd prefer something a bit more discreet to go with business attire, but at the same time it's good to have frames that are a bit distinctive. Lunor looks good on paper but haven't come across their frames in the city I live in, I suspect they may be too large as well.

    Any recommendations on other similar types of glasses that fit my profile? Price of <$800 would help.

    Example 1: Lindberg

    Thanks!

    None of them look wrong. It is probably you not accustomed to spectacles.

    I'll bite.

    Example 1: These are my favorite. They're smart and slightly youthful (they fit your age).
    Example 2: I don't think the teardrop shape suits your face.
    Example 3: You look like my CEO, and that's NOT a compliment.
    Example 4: Defientely the most trendy of the bunch. If that's your thing I guess they're okay.

    Take anything I say with a grain of salt because I don't know or care about eye wear. I think you look the most handsome in the first pair.

    Thanks for all the advice. In the end I went with Lunor A5 223. Perfect fit for my face, and built quality is great too.
