Warby Parker does a great job of creating unique vintage-inspired eyeglasses that fit a variety of styles. Their spring 2016 collection is out, so we rounded up some of their wide glasses and put them on yours truly – a guy with a larger than average noggin. I normally sport a 55-21-150 frame that is a bit oversized (even for me), but works for my look. This season is all about new shapes and hues, which you’ll see in the frames we reviewed below. You can test out your favorites for free using Warby Parker’s Home Try-On Program.
Eaton: Ok, so the Eaton isn’t actually part of the spring collection, but I liked the way they looked so much that I wanted to include them here. The unique color scheme of the Eaton stood out to me immediately. If you’re looking for an extra pair of glasses to help shake up certain looks, the tree swallow fade is a solid option. Not up for adventure? Try the dark brown tortoise variety – it’ll work with most things in your closet. If you’ve got a wide set face, these glasses can do wonders for you. The Eaton measures 52-20-142.
Mitchell: The Mitchell offers a sloped rectangular frame that works with a variety of faces. The Earl Grey version offers a translucent, smoky look that stands out without overdoing it. Though they are too slim for my tastes, if you’re looking for something more traditional that lets the color do all the standing out, these are the frames for you. The Mitchell is available in at 54-17-145.
Crane: If you liked the Mitchell, but wish they were a little taller, you’ll find the Crane to your liking. While the frame itself is pretty slim, it’s made to look oversized, which you can see it still accomplishes on a larger head like mine. The Crane is available in 4 colors: dark blue, a light and dark brown, and of course, black. Get them in a 52-18-145.
Kensett: If you’re like me, and you couldn’t imagine yourself wearing rounded eyeglasses, give the Kensett a try. Available in atlantic blue and good ol’ whiskey tortoise, this rounded frame with square(ish) lenses looks surprisingly good on gents with large heads. At 51-22-145, this frame will fit many heads.
Now you’ve got a few more options when it comes to glasses for big heads. Do you have a favorite? Tell us which one it is in the comments below. You’ll find these and more wide glasses available in the Chubstr shop, or over at WarbyParker.com.
