Just got myself a pair of original 1980 (Clear/ Violet Iridium) Oakley Frongskins. Been wanting a pair since I lost mine as a youth. I Will be wearing them all Summer long.

They look a bit like swimming goggles on you. Try a bigger model, perhaps?..  ;)

Those aren't too bad, but I'd have to agree with Seul bigger frames may work better.

You both confirmed my anxieties about these. Subsequently I have been looking at these:

Maui Jim also do an in-house prescription service.

FFS, they looked fine in the store.

As a glasses wearer I'm a bit of a newbie about sunglasses.

Those Maui-Jims 'd prob look ace on you.

Shameless plug for someone on Styleforum trying to sell the DIOR 'BLACK TIE' sunglasses. He's been trying to get rid of these for months now, right after I got mine. Such good glasses, don't miss out!..

hahaha nice...finally we can start talking about this without shitting up other threads!
(maybe G. can move all the posts into here?)

So here's me again...
what ya think guys? this is a large...




I really like them.. up for consideration..

nice poster in the background! ;)
thx a lot mate...

same here! btw. is there a glasses-thread somewhere?

the only thing i think about is if the space between the top of the glasses and the bridge of the nose is too big (see pic!)

Hey Finn...I like them but I see what you mean. I took forever to choose mine and still wonder if I made the right choice! Your eyes are pretty central and you could definitely pull them off but they're maybe a touch high on the nose. My two pennies worth....

^yeah that's what i thought as well at first...but it also could be cuz my nose isn't that straight anymore (was broken some months back!) so now they sit a bit higher as "normal" i think!

Don't get me wrong I like 'em. And your nose has faired better than my twice broken banana ;) I think you can ask the same question to 100 different people and get 100 different points of view. Bit like with your hair cut. The GF often throws a spanner in the works...happens almost daily for me. Totally ignore her POV mind :)
They're definitely some very nice frames that suit your face anyway...
