    Opinion on sunglasses

    I've just bought my first pair of sunglasses since breaking some about 6 years ago and I'm looking for opinions on their fit and style.

    Overall I like both but I'm not sure if pair 1 are too square or pair 2 are too wide. Of course if there is a pair even better, I'd look at those too.

    My hair isn't "styled" in these pictures, but I don't think it will make much difference... wavy/curly hair.

    Cheers!

    Both look fine - they both suit your face shape.

    The bridge on the black ones looks too narrow for your nose and the silver ones (as you indicated yourself) are definitely too wide for your face. Shape-wise, both frames suit you, but neither are perfect.

    I agree, and I have a larger than average nose so the black glasses probably don't help.

    These are less wide frames with a larger bridge : Ray-Ban 3016 Clubmaster Sunglasses : 3016 Clubmaster Black W0365 Large 51mm : UK

    The top of my nose is wide, so I always go for a wider bridge with nose pads so I can adjust them. I tend to steer clear of glasses without nose pads for that reason.

    Those frames are pretty nice - if I were you, I'd get them direct from Ray-Ban as you can customise them to your own tastes & requirements.

    Just had a mess around with the app. It's pretty cool. These are the design I'd go for if I was picking those frames for myself - the polarised lenses cost a bit more, but I'd definitely pay the extra for them.

    The left pair look better at first glance but then realised the arms are sitting about 2 miles above your ears.

    What do we think about these ones? Ray-ban round, 5th pair I've tried. The bridge is a lot better although I'm wearing them a little too high in this image.

    I'm not a massive fan of mirrored lenses though - I just don't like sunglasses that totally block out the eyes, but that's just a personal thing. The shades look good.
