    These were posted on SUFU for the NDG-1's. For those familiar with this type of thing, do these seem like big glasses, or average-sized?

    * Rim to rim width across the front = 137mm
    * Eye = 50mm
    * D.B.L = 19mm
    * Temple = 144mm

    Ive read that Shurons are on the heavy side.


    Those are pretty small. I have a medium-large head and I need at least a 57. Finding glasses is so hard [​IMG]

    I have the Oliver Peoples "Ari" in both black and tortoise. I've always worn "nerd" style glasses and these ones are my favorites by far. And yes, shurons are heavy but if I don't miss my guess LK was referring to visually heavy not physical weight. edited for pic: [​IMG]

    Those frames are small and "tall" I mean in depth. They are almost like a square, but 50 eye size is on the small size.

    How about a warning before you post that? I have a very large monitor.

    If you zoom in another 2x or so it will become clear.

    Is there something inherently wrong with the brands I posted, or do you just not like that style of frame?

    i love my glasses because they are nerdy but different than the wayfarer style. They are brooks brothers bb 709. Mine are in "smoke" (dk. gray/black) I got them at lenscrafters

    Surprised at the lack of more rounded nerdy glasses.

    My dad rocks something like these:

    And I've been thinking of getting some OP Rileys:

    By the way, is this legit?
