HOW CAN I KNOW IF A MODEL FITS? HOW ARE THE SIZE MEASUREMENTS TO BE INTERPRETED?
If you look closely, you might see three numbers stamped on the inside of your eyeglasses. These numbers usually appear on the inner surface of one of the frame temples (the long stems of the frames that hold your glasses in place behind your ears).
These numbers describe the size of your eyeglass frames, specifically:
- The key measurements that describe eyeglass sizes are the eye size, bridge width and temple length.
- The bridge size (distance between the lenses)
- The temple length
- All three of these measurements are specified in millimeters (mm).
|Small||Below 48 mm||Below 55 mm|
|Medium||48 mm - 55 mm||56 mm - 64 mm|
|Large||Above 55 mm||Above 64 mm|
Here a small orientation assistance:
PLEASE MEASURE YOUR OWN EYEGLASSES OR SUNGLASSES AND COMPARE WITH OUR MEASUREMENTS.
Please consider, that all models can be individually fitted to your face by a professional. The bow width and length have a certain latitude. This service is often rendered by opticians without any cost. So if you like the glasses, but they don’t fit 100%, we recommend you to contact an optician first.
(The height of the glasses is a style attribute and has no influence on the fit.)

WHY IS THE ORIGINAL PACKAGING MISSING WITH SOME OF THE MODELS AND WHY ARE SOME VINTAGE GLASSES NOT ABSOLUTELY FLAWLESS?
Since we offer exclusively older originals (which are manufactured no longer), it is not possible to order further accessories. Our sunglasses are at least 20 years old and over time have been stored in several different locations.
As a result, it’s only too understandable that over the years some or all the accessories have been lost (pouches, cases, cleaning cloths, interchangeable lenses, certificates, etc.).
Yet this is also, at the same, an indication of the authenticity of our eyewear. It would be more than unbelievable if all these genuine vintage glasses from the 1970s to the 1990s came with a complete set of original accessories.
The same applies to the condition of many vintage glasses. Even though most of the eyewear we offer has never been worn, these glasses can sometimes still have minor traces of their former life in storage. Rather than such traces indicating defects or flaws, they add to the vintage character which is such an attraction in these glasses.
In that sense, an old vintage model in a clinically new condition is a contradiction in terms.
