  • Metal frames: Classic and sleek, metal frames provide a refined look. Titanium frames are lightweight and hypoallergenic, while stainless steel frames offer durability.

  • Wood frames: For an eco-friendly and unique choice, wooden frames add a touch of natural elegance. They are lightweight and often handcrafted for a one-of-a-kind look.

How Do You Determine the Shape of Your Face?

  • Oval: Characterised by balanced proportions, oval faces have gently rounded contours. Most frame shapes, including square, rectangular and round suit this face shape.

  • Round: Round faces have softer angles and fuller cheeks. Angular frames, such as square or rectangular, can help add definition and structure to the face.

  • Square: Square faces feature a strong jawline and broad forehead. Opt for rounded or oval frames to soften the facial features.

  • Heart: Heart-shaped faces have a broader forehead and narrower chin. Choose frames that are wider at the top, like pilots or cat-eye shapes, to balance the face.

  • Oblong: Oblong faces are longer than they are wide, with more straight lines. Look for frames that have more depth and width to create a more balanced appearance.

For an eye frame that looks good on a range of face shapes, look no further than our SOHO 1. These rectangular-shaped pilots truly hit the ball of the park when it comes to style, comfort, and versatility.


How to Make Your Pick

The current eyewear market is brimming with options. With the sea of choices also comes an uncanny decision-freeze. However, a little knowledge can go a long way in helping you pick the right glasses for your frames. The first thing is to try glasses before you buy them.

You can opt for our free home trial service to try 4 frames for 7 days in the comfort of your home. Similarly, consider your skin tone while buying frame colours. For instance, warmer skin tones look amazing in earthy-hued frames like tortoiseshell, brown, amber, etc. On the contrary, guys with a cooler undertone can opt for black, blue, or silver-hued frames. The other important point to consider is the perfect frame, which adds harmony to your facial structure. In addition,

Stylish and designer glasses for men are more than just a visual aid - they are a fashion statement that can enhance your overall look and boost your confidence. By understanding the above mentioned factors, you can find the perfect pair of glasses that not only provide optimal vision but also reflect your personal style. So, don’t be afraid to explore different styles, colours, and materials to find the glasses that make you look and feel the best.
