The Jacques Marie Mage rep was in Melbourne this morning, and I got to try a few pairs on. By a few, I mean all the glasses in the world!

This is a new style, the Ascarii. They also resemble Carl Fredricksen's spectacles in Up...

"Ascarii"

The Quattro is a cool style, though they're sold as sunglasses. This is a pair with the lenses pushed out.

"Quattro"

I like this style, the Ringo, unfortunately the orange version is (mostly) sold out. However, an optician's in Manchester has a pair in stock...

"Ringo"

The orange ones are definitely better.  Much more you.

They're good, but the only two pairs I've found are rather expensive. :(

So my venerable Ray Bans died today after 12 years of distinguished service.  Now I'm searching for replacements.  I am not excited about the search, which is made harder by the fact that I have the same size head as an average 10 year old.

Still looking? I may be able to help! I have a similar problem, and I found some great frames. I just started wearing glasses last year when my vision decided to take a giant shit.

I already purchased some, but I'm curious about your suggestions, @seawolf.  I don't love mine, so I'm open to alternatives.

On a side note, we were traveling last week and I ended up buying a cheapo pair to keep from going snowblind.  While shopping, my wife keep handing me pairs from the children's section.  An embarrassing number fit pretty well.

@Chris , you definitely need to check out https://davidkind.com

They have frames for smaller faces, and will help pick pairs that look best on you. You pick 3, and their stylist picks 3 for home try-on, and they get mailed to you. I ended up not liking the ones I picked out, and bought two that the stylist picked out. Great customer service, high quality frames and lenses. They even did two doctor remakes for me because my prescription is so whacky that it took several tries to get it right. Highly recommended.

I have always loved Persol, so finally ended up with more than sunglasses from them.

I dropped by an opticians in Melbourne this afternoon, as my girlfriend wanted to get her contact lenses checked out, and they had a rep in from Mr Leight. They're a high-end brand by the people behind Garrett Leight.

"Mr Leight Glasses"

The frames I tried on were Japanese made, and reminded me a bit of some of the Jacques Marie Mage styles, but with thinner wire. The price point is around $1000 in Australia, about $700 US.
