Random question just in case someone can help. I have a big head, physically I mean although my girlfriend might claim it applies metaphorically as well! I'm after some new sunglasses and was looking at Ray Ban Wayfarers or Aviators. I've tried some on but always feel like the arms are bending outwards at least a little bit which feels wrong. Am I worrying unnecessarily? Or should I look for a brand/style that is a bit wider? Anyone know something like that?
Have you checked at Pearle Vision or LensCrafters? Those places do sell non-prescription shades from Ray-Ban, Maui Jim and Oakley, and they can adjust them to properly fit your head. I have a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers from LensCrafters that they actually had to narrow down for me quite a bit... and that's for a guy who wears a size 7-1/2 hat!
It might seem like overkill to buy shades from an optician, but I look at it as being the same thing as buying a good suit and having it tailored. You know you're gonna put it to good use, so you get the best you can afford, and you make it fit right.
