Note: Vintage Eyeglasses tend to run much smaller than modern ones. They were worn much closer to the face. For the best selection of vintage frames, consider wearing the minimum size that would fit you. You can start out by measuring a current pair that fits you and seeing how much smaller you can go. Most frames we sell are medium vintage size. While this would be considered smaller in today's day in age, they will fit most people.
