    I wanted to get input on the fit of my new 714's. They're 52mm, I was wondering if the sizing looked correct or if I should look into sending them back and swapping them for 54's.

    I would not get them any larger than that. They are fine.

    While there is obviously some camera angle exaggeration going on, your head has too much roundness for a round shaped pair of sunglasses to compliment you. You might be more of a Wayfarer guy. The rectangular lines counteract the overall sensation of the curves.

    Probably not what you want to hear.

    I wasn't looking for any specific answer, so I appreciate the feedback. I actually already own a pair I tortoiseshell wayfarers (2410's) that I love, but in getting these I was just looking for something a bit different. If they don't suit me then that's perfectly fine, but I wanted to get opinions from an objective 3rd party before returning them. Those original pictures were a bit disproportionate though, so here's one from further away for a better perspective (yes, it's in a restroom at work)
