The Big Deal

Big guys no longer need to sacrifice fit for fashion or style for comfort. With the newest designs, they have the best of both worlds—a world where form follows function follows form. Now that’s a big deal.

FITTING TIPS

  • Stock larger sizes—in contemporary colors and shapes—and spare (longer) temples in your frame inventory.
  • Extended endpieces and bowed temples add room to smaller designs.
  • Spring hinges and adjustable nosepads and temple tips are a must for ensuring a comfortable fit.
  • Lightweight materials such as titanium, aluminum and stainless steel provide a sleek, slim look and are the ultimate in comfort.
