So, paying an extra 50 gets you designer glasses!
costco only sales discontinued frames, so if you need a peice to repair a damaged frame . . well you wont be able to get it. the cost is cheaper yes BUT it's not worth the risk.

well i volunteer at an optical store/clinic and lately all we've been getting are plastic frames in bold/solid colours. those and rimless frames seem to be incredibly popular right now. however i dont really recommend following a certain glasses trend since they are an investment (esp depending on the frame and glasses) and you will ultimately want something that flatters you and wont risk getting you looking dated within a month.

I have a pair of nice Armani glasses (when I need to look professional), but I also like to buy vintage frames or sunglasses and have the lenses replaced at an eyeglasses store. They'll give you the usual "we can't take responsibility if these break" etc, but it's a good (and cheap) way to build a fun eyeglasses wardrobe.

I have a Alain Mikli from the the PACT line that is my ultimate favorite frame. The price on Mikli's are a little expensive, but the comfort of them and texture of the plastics are amazing. I have a Chanel frame as well, but I RARELY get comments on it. They make quite large Chanels, but the problem is they don't really market for males. Most of their frames aren't unisex. I could make a few suggestions for you if you would like! Plastics or metals? Message me !

^ Depends on your facial structure. I have a small face with delicate features so most glasses look overwhelming on me. Sometimes I have to try on the kid's frames, but those usually look bad too. So for me it's almost impossible and forget about designer, I'll take the one pair in the city that doesn't make me look ridiculous, and designers never seem to make them small and dainty enough for that.

Anyway, Diorling, if face shape is your problem too, take your most flattering sunglasses with you when you go glasses shopping and see if you can find a similar pair. And take a digital camera or an honest friend.

But I know for a fact that there are some people who I find can look so good in glasses, even, better with them than without. I especially like ones with some thickness and unique style (but not so much the same emo glasses everyone else is wearing). I guess you need to have a medium to large sized head/facial features to pull that off.

Yeah, i agree i think it definately depends on your facial structure. I have a small face (dont know about small features tho ) and one of my first pairs of glasses were childrens because i couldnt find any to suit my face (all too wide) but the past few years ive found so many pairs that do suit my face. At the moment im wearing a thick rimmed, mocha D&G pair with wide arms. Its the wide sidearms that make them suit my face even tho they are quite rectangualr and wide. I think im one of those people who look better ion glasses but i think thats because i feel more confident when i wear them. Anyway Dorling, keep looking, your perfect pair are out there some where (oooooh that rhymes:p )

Would normal eyglasses stores in the mall sell designer frames? Where would I be able to buy say, a pair of Max Azria frames?
