    I just picked out a pair by Salt. It's so hard to choose. I hope there will be on buyer's remorse.

    I decided to go with these in tortoise. http://www.arknets.co.jp/img/ripeark...08-blk-b-1.jpg
    Those Moscot frames are nice but I think something in a light amber or tortoiseshell would suit your fair complexion better. I saw some Ray-Ban clubmasters that would have fit the bill.

    I don't like it when there's names attached to whatever I wear but I think these are permissible because the logo is tiny.

    They are woman's glasses but all of the men's I've ever seen are always black.

    do you have a pic of these on your face, that you will share?

    I was going to suggest those for you when I first saw your post. You should post a pic when they arrive. I'm thinking of getting a pair myself, but I'm still nervous about virtual eye glass shopping. I enjoy that frame, but I'm not sure how it would look on my fatish round face.

    I would say to try them on in a store. First off, you dont know what it will look like if you buy online. Next, chances are youll get a better price on lenses if you get them in a store with the glasses...

    I am going to buy them without lenses so that I can try them on and see how I like them and how they fit, that way I can return them if I want. If I decide to keep I'll go get some lenses put in them.

    And bbaquiran, I like Clubmasters a lot and have considered getting them, but I only wear frames with silver metal. I can't stand goldtone, so I'd need to find some in tortoise/silver.

    I went to an optic place near me and tried on a few oliver people, I like one pair but still for $300 i didnt LOVE them. I sorta got discouraged because every style I tried on I felt that none looked good on me. Maybe I don't like shopping for glasses because it makes me feel god ugly.

    if these are your first pair i would consider not burning a large amount until you know what you need in a pair. at the same time, if you have to wear glasses all day, spending $150 or spending $300 for frames, that $150 is well spent for a pair of comfortable frames that you'll be wearing 12+ hours a day.

    i recently looked at the oliver peoples, not too bad, look well made, but their metals are a little expensive, almost mykita territory...

    It would be my second pair, my first is a pair of D&G that I have hated since I got home from lensecrafters. It would have been $500 to get those oliver with lenses (yikes!).

    It never ceases to amaze me that people here look at $300+ jeans and comment how it's such a deal but when it comes to eyeglasses it all goes to the cheap. It's nuts.

    Sure, you don't have to spend $500 bucks for a good pair of glasses but the same can be said for $200 shirts and $300 jeans. And in the grand scheme of things which part of your body do people see most your head or your ass?

    Spend the money on your eyes. You'll never outgrow them. The same cannot be said for your clothing. Besides, there's no easier way to fuck up your style than with shitty glasses.

    The fit is nice, IMO. They had three sizes, so i just took my measuring tape and chose a size.

    I've got no problem spending 5x the amount of my jeans on glasses (I wear a pair of NS everyday) but I gotta feel good in them. I did try and sweet talk them into stocking salt eyeglasses (they carry salt sunglasses) but they said they simply couldn't because they sell oliver.

    If I was to buy one online it would be a toss up between these Mostcots and salts, My favorite is the grey yale. What I did find out today though is that I don't have a long face so deep glasses are too big on me and I look better in rectangular frames. Anyone know how eye brows factor into choosing your frames? I have very thick and jet black eye brows despite my hair being a light color.

    In my opinion, Glasses are a part of your wardrobe. You cant be limited by only having 1 pair. I myself have 5 pairs with different styles and colors. I change them up depending on what I wear and where I am going. Having only 1 pair is kinda boring. You dont have to spend a lot of money to get something that looks nice. Look around and try them on...

    Has anyone tried on the Moscot Yale? If so how tall is the top-to-bottom depth?

    Wow, welcome to the forums. If you didn't know, everyone here was born with style - their chapped asses even matched their eyes when they were babies. Unfortunately, sometimes that natural style leads to an inability to know what it may be like to need some help in the style category. Basically, ignore the assholes around here (at least, when they're being assholes). As for the glasses, the ones you picked look nice, but they will stand out more on your face than your current ones due to the slightly thicker, darker frame. You should be sure to find some to try on at a nearby B&M to make sure you like the look. You could try some other colors too and play with some different styles of frames. Maybe even take some pics and if you really want to hear from people around here, post them and you can get some feedback (ON THE GLASSES). Good luck.

    Thanks for the real feedback. Next time ill put a bit more discretion into any pictures i post.
    Also - if i were to cut my hair a lot shorter than it is, do you think thinker frames would look better by standing out- or would they overpower?
