    My index is HIGH. Im like a 650. I do get 1.74 lenses. Thing is all of the frames i wants are all rectangular and large. And the smaller lenses I do like, I don't have the nose for (Shakes fist in the "Damn Asian nose"). Right now I'm currently wearing Salt:

    Which as are a big as I can go. Thank god the lense is thick enough to hide my lenses


    -6.50 is not that bad. Another factor is how wide your eyes are set apart. The larger they are set apart, the thinner your lenses will look. Many factors. But if you go to a good optical, they will be able to find you a style you like while still getting you thin lenses. There are also tricks as to how they cut the lenses. You can take the same lenses and same frames and make the lenses look thinner. Find a good optical and stick with them...

    I sorta want to add a wild card frame into my order from Moscot but I can't choose a pair other than the hesh and emile that would look good on my face.

    Hahaha asian nose. I can't have them too wide apart. Yes i will have to look for a decent optical place. I usually go to asian ones, b/c they can get me frames / lenses a little cheaper. Never thought of the quality of work they do.

    lol. look for "asia fit". I am asian and have seen a lot of people with that problem. Polo Ralph Lauren has a bigger plastic frame that you are looking for, and it has nose pads Polo Ralph Lauren, not Polo, not Ralph, there are like 6-7 lines from Ralph Lauren and not all stores will carry the same frames) The nose pads dont give it the same feel because they are not flat on your face, but at least you get the look of a thick plastic frame.

    I got Moscot Emile in the mail yesterday and the Moscot Hesh. I like the Emile better out of the two. I got them sent to me and I'm going to send them back and get my prescription put in them. I fail at taking pictures of myself but any criticism?

    I'm having a really hard time finding glasses that I like on me. I bought Moscot emile and I'm not so sure about them. My girlfriend really likes them and everyone I have asked had said yes, I'm not sure though. I get a lot of compliments at work about my resemblance to James Dean or Marlon Brando and I feel like these glasses ruin it; gives me a bad Buddy Holly look. Only two pictures I have, one is sorta an awkward Lips Xbox moment that my friend took.

    While I'm not sure how stylish they are, the two eyeglass frames I prefer using these days are Randolf Engineering's aviator frames (an old habit from my time with the USAF) and Anglo Americans 406, Tortoise shell frames.

    Just bought a new pair of black Ray-Ban RB5020, similar to Clubmasters but smaller to suit my asian face.

    I'd like to see more pictures of people wearing their frames (thanks coldsnap), helps me get an idea of what would look decent on me since I don't have any good vendors around.

    Anybody know where I can view Super frames online? I've tried searching with Google but couldn't really find anything.

    Good idea. I would suggest not too look online though, because most "models" wearing frames dont even look good in them.
