    Hello,

    I'm looking to get new sunglasses. I sometimes wear glasses, like the one's below (size 49):

    My face is oval, and those glasses look good on me.

    For sunglasses, I'm considering Persol 714 sunglasses. Many SFers say that size 52 sunglasses are the lowest size a man should go.

    Since my glasses are size 49, would size 49 sunglasses be perfect, or should I go with size 52 Persol sunglasses?

    You should be fine with size 49's.
    That's actually the design i'm on the verge of getting. I was thinking of getting the Persol McQueen's however.

    I too have an oval face. It goes great with most glasses.

    try them out in person

    ive owned a few pair and tried multiple others... and the majority of the persol line fit very wide and loose. i like the styling but many simply arent good to wear (obv specific to my noggin , but dont have same problem with other brands)

    The sizing is def something worth trying on to determine. Based on lens shape and degree of wrap of the model the size measurements can be misleading. Just my two cents be safe and try a pair on before. Best of luck with your decision... :smarmy: I have a pair of 714 sz 52 for sale in the market place too if you figure out that size works for you.
