When you’ve got a big head, finding glasses that fit you well can be a pain. Eyewear retailer Eyeconic understands this and offers a bunch of frames that fit from brands you know and a few you don’t. Want wide rounded frames? They’ve got ’em. Looking for frames that fit from a luxury brand? Check. The Eyeconic selection runs the spectrum, so we’ve chosen our favorite wide frames from their site. Watch the video above to see our top 5 picks and scroll down to see the full list, along with the sizes of each frame.
I love the tortoise / military feel of this frame from Cole Haan. As far as sizing goes, they lean more toward medium, but when I put them on, they felt like they fit well. This is another reason it is important to know the size of your head.
I’m a big fan of glasses that have a fade like these frames from Altair do. The Navy fade on the bottom of these really stands out in person (see it in the video above) and isn’t so blue that it can’t work with a variety of looks. These large frames were slightly oversized on my head, which is a look I personally dig.
I can’t explain how much I love the idea of circular frames now that I’ve tested out the SF2802 from Ferragamo. For the past 20 years or so, all of my glasses have been generally rectangular or sort of squared off. Not only did I like the shape of these luxury frames, but the smaller details stood out to me as well. I’m wearing Crystal Khaki color frames.
In addition to suits, dress shirts and ties, Joseph Abboud does wide eyeglasses. I like the simplicity of the JA4022, which will work with anything you wear. If you want to be a bit more adventurous without going too far out there, check out the walnut or the tortoise horn varieties.
These frames from Cole Haan are a sibling to the 4007 we mentioned above. I like the sort of “updated throwback” look these offer, and even though they look brown, the color is called crystal olive. A definite winner in my book.
Oakley OK8132 | 54-17-132 | Polished Black | $198
The coolest thing about these wide frames from Oakley is that they are interchangeable, meaning you can swap out individual parts of these glasses to make them work for your needs. Change color or fit of the temples, the bridge and more.
These casual, lightweight eyeglasses from Nike look best in matte dark grey. It’s a smoky sort of frame that you can see through. These frames come with a Nike case and cleaning cloth.
Gucci GG0191OA | 54-16-150 | Shiny Black | $386
These wide frames from Gucci are unique because of the two-tone that the shiny black version offers. The off-white (called light horn) sort of outlines the entire frame of these glasses, making them stand out. It’s all about the details. If you’re looking for high end, this is the way to go.
Dragon DR173 Jamie | 54-17-140 | Satin Black | $186
Are you sick of thick plastic frames? Give these wide eyeglasses from Dragon a try. They are super lightweight and stay in place without squeezing your head like it’s in a vice. If you want to shake things up, try the blue resin or the eggplant!
Dragon DR169 Vincent | 55-18-140 | Matte Shadow | $167
I’m impressed by the Dragon brand because they seem to be marching to their own beat when it comes to design. The Vincent stands out for its perfect combination of shape, material and color. I’m partial to the matte shadow / resin, myself.
Let’s face it – a lot of eyeglasses look pretty similar, especially when it comes to their colors. The MCM 2649A bucks that trend with the bordeaux color, a rich red that stands out while still working with most outfits. This is one I’d pick up as a secondary frame that you’ll get constant compliments on.
