    I also have a narrow face so large sunglasses don't work for me. I've been searching for square plastic framed sunglasses forever but can't find what I want. Most of the smaller wayfarer types are rounded and if I do find square frames, the lenses are 57mm+. If you're looking for aviator style sunglasses, the American Optical pilot in size 52mm work for me.

    52mm? i dont think ive ever tried on glasses that small... i shall check em out. I think 55-57mm work ok usually, it just depends on the overall shape.

    Most glasses that i see out there at the moment seem to be 60-65mm which is just ginormous on my noggin.

    I think I've now made some of the best screenshots from the movie MR 73 for you experts out there to come up with right type of glasses that Daniel Auteuil is wearing in this film, because as of now, I've only had some (quality) guesses, that I did appreciate, but they weren't spot on.

    Man, I hope so much one of you might know what glasses he is wearing.

    My friend stepped on my Rayban aviators and I was wondering if it was possible to get a replacement side piece?

    Depends where it broke, but yes. Take it to an optical and ask them to order the temple. It will be cheaper than getting a new frame. But youll probably have to order both sides. They only send it out in pairs.

    Who makes smaller wayfarers in the wayfarer shape? All the wayfarers ive tried on are huge on my face... i'd kinda like to find something in that style but ive never really seen the shape in a smaller form that looked decent.

    Much more modern fit on their original wayfarer. I got em a while ago and love em. Much easier on the face than the originals.

    What do you guys think of these:

    http://www.fossil.com/webapp/wcs/st...|0||p_weight|0&rec=1&pn=c&imagePath=MS4755710

    (sorry, but I can't seem to copy the picture)

    Also, what's the general advice on fitting your face? I've got a somewhat long, angular face, long nose, light skin and brown hair. What should I look for in a pair of shades?


    You'll get some general advice for fitting but in the end if you want to know for sure...you HAVE to go to a store and put them on your face physically and look at yourself in the mirror. Then make the decision if they look good on you or not.

    However, I did hear something about round shades go with not round faces? or maybe the round shades go with round faces? iono lol

    Can anyone help me ID the sunglasses in this music video?



    The music gets better after the first 10 seconds. It looks like there's some really good close ups with one at 1:00, but I can't recognize them for the life of me.

    Would they be too small on someone with a larger face? (not huge)

    I quite like them.

    Glad I found these forums. Up until today I was posting my questions in the yahoo answers area, and I gotta say, not so productive when it comes to questions about style advice. Hello forum [​IMG]

    Can anyone identify the make/model of these sunglasses?
