recently was informed about hakusan megane when i mentioned i was looking for cool frames for prescription sunglasses

no idea where to get them outside of japan at the moment but having a frame designed for asian noses means less pushing glasses up. plus, it looks pretty good from what i can tell.

@rjbman@unwashedmolasses - i think using the front facing camera made them a little weird, but i see what you're saying.

Can I get some feedback on the rest of these try on pairs I have? First image (black glasses) are my current frames. Haven't found anything really like them and kind of want to try something new anyways. (apologies for the bathroom pics but it's the best mirror/lighting i have)

my favorite eyewear flintstone is le corbusier.

Image

the miu miu s/s 2015 glasses and their roundness, with the little wire nose bridge, are very appealing to me right now

Image

round glasses are just so lovely to me. hopefully when i next buy glasses i'll be brave enough to try a pair.

sorry i was writing a reply and my phone decided to delete it
basically you can choose to get glasses that will complement your face shape like so:
Image
or you can decide to emphasise your features by getting frames in the same shape as your face, like jean pierre coffe (round face/round glasses)
Image

imo the most important is that your eyes are in the centre of the glasses, your eyebrows just above the frames and the frames should be as wide as your face.

try on lots of glasses and you will get an idea of what suits you. bringing a friend also helps.

I've been told I need rounder frames to suit my face. I currently wear
Image

Purely round like a circle are probably what people are subtly trying to recommend me (or not subtly) but they seem to look kind of ridiculous to me. I once tried my friend's round wire specs and my friends said I looked like Asian Lennon.

Should I aim for a "softer" round shape? Anyone got some examples for me? I'll probably buy when I can get updated prescriptions.

Not sure if the angle of the pic is off... sorry. Hope it is good enough that you can see my face shape.

really really would like semi-rimless round plastic frames for my next pair. unfortunately can't seem to find any at all in my price range (sub-$200). anyone have recommendations?

I'm also considering some clear plastic frames à la @gerogerigegege but I'm worried I wouldn't really pull them off and they'd just look gimmicky, anyone have opinions on this for me?

on another note, so incredibly tired of the constant "harry potter" remarks. like god damn people. its not like he invented round glasses. not that I didnt expect to get them when I got these frames, but I mean I usually don't care that much about that kind of thing and it still has become so tiresome........ just needed to vent I guess >:^(

I used to get harry potter remarks when I wore square glasses. It's a state of being. Like how absolutely everyone on earth knows that I "Work with computers" without talking to me.

Don't worry about not pulling them off. Just buy whatever, wear it for a month and you'll forget that you're wearing them. At that point you will be pulling it off.

back again with more glasses options, i'd appreciate any comments / feedback you all have. tried out some rounder glasses this time and i think because i'm so used to seeing myself with rectangle frames that i'm negatively biased towards how these look, so i'm unsure how they actually look on me.


edit: i'm kind of liking pair 1.

i wouldn't go with black, but one and three look pretty nice. I would go with something that has a little more weight to it.

Those are by a Korean brand I recently learned of, Gentle Monster. Anyone know of other similar frames?

leaning toward 1(mostly bc I don't think I have strong enough features to do very boldly colored/shaped frames) but input appreciated...... :sweg:

Not a big fan of crystal glasses on your light skin, washes you out a bit. In 123 your eyes are not in the centre of the lens so i would reject them. I like the shape of the frame though. 4th pair looks too similar in shape to your own glasses, what's the point of buying new glasses to look the same.
Try more glasses!

Thought I'd share some more frames I got. The first pair are Bausch and Lomb Ful-Vues, probably from mid-20th century. The Ful-Vue style frames are a cool piece of history for first innovating temples above the centerline of the eye, enabling an unobstructed view. They were introduced by American Optical around 1930, inspiring numerous other manufacturers soon after. Cable temples are cool too since I can wear my glasses down to my chin without them falling off.

Image


My next pair, though much more modern relatively, share a similar silhouette. These are Oliver People MP-2s, one of their first models but only recently reintroduced in their Circa 1987 series.

Image

Made in the original Japanese factory rather than the current Luxottica one, these are one of the most intricate frames I've handled, with wonderful filigree work.

Hope you guys enjoyed. More in spoiler!

Even the unboxing experience felt substantial. There were like two more layers of cardboard I omitted.

Do these make me look like the most important thinker on care tags?

Main attraction was that they come with clip on sunglasses wish is soooo crucial. Main concern is that they could do with sitting a bit higher on my face but without nose pads there isn't really any way to get them to do that.

Spoiler:
Apparently the same as these but let's not think about how much better they look on jack
