3026 is an oversized lens that is shaped slightly different from the classic aviator. 62 mm in the 3025 is the large size for the classic aviators. FWIW, I have a big head, but found the 62 mm 3025's too big and the 58 mm size much better.

I fit the 62 3025 and it was the best fit for me. I haven't had a chance to compare with smaller models though. Just the 2 I mentioned.

Is there a 60? Or is the next smallest a 58 for the 3025..

While on the topic of Rayban Aviators.... I don't wear sunglasses much, but my dad was a commercial pilot for 25 years and wore aviators all the time. He says the quality of Rayban is garbage, and they break fairly easily. He recommended getting a pair of Serengeti aviators. I don't think they make aviators anymore, you can still find them online. The look of his is very close to a lot of Raybans I have seen, and he has had them for 8 years. Just figured I would throw that out there.

Serengetis don't fit my AZN face very well. But yeah they're nice. Never seen the aviator models tho.

When fitting.. How do u know it fits well when the nose pads haven't been adjusted?

I tried another 3025 62 today from another store. The fit was abit off but I think it was the same model just a different color way. It was a cheaper too by around $30.

My dad has the 3025 58mm. It's too small for the both of us.
