Sizing Guide for Sunglasses fitment
How do I measure my sunglasses size?
If you have a pair of glasses or sunglasses already that you know are a good comfortable fit, the measurements can be taken from these.
Unless otherwise stated, all the sunglasses we sell are available in the size detailed only. Having mentioned this, due to different production batches, lens glazing techniques and storage, there can be a tolerance of +/-1mm from piece to piece of the same model. Also, a pair of sunglasses are likely to expand a little as they are worn by the end user. Excessive expansion is usually due to incorrect sizing, storage (in a tight case or under compression) or wearing them incorrectly i.e. on top of your head, it looks cool :-) but might render the sunglasses too loose to wear normally.
Nowadays, more commonly, good quality sunglasses are being made to one size to fit all. The reason for this is that they also accommodate a degree of adjustability in more key areas. If you are unsure if a model has this feature please ask us and we will let you know. Any adjustments should be carried out by a trained professional, i.e. a dispensing optician or technician, as they have the necessary tools and skill to do so.

*** Most metal frames with nose-pad arms can be adjusted from 10mm-20mm, as long as it is not beyond the wire rim of the frame. Styles other then metal can also accommodate a wide range of nose bridge sizes but will determine whether the frame sits high or low on the nose/face. Too narrow = too high, Too wide = too low. Thankfully most people have a size that is considered medium.
**** Lens size is often a personal style preference, provided the curvature is preferable and that other dimensions are suitable.
