How to Choose Glasses Frames for Men

Your frames have to balance your sense of fashion and functionality. Therefore, picking the right frames is a must. We’ll guide you to your perfect pair with our recommendations. 

Men’s glasses differ from women’s in terms of size, shape, and color. Men’s frames are larger with a longer bridge. Men usually prefer square or rectangle-shaped frames. And in terms of color, they opt for neutral colors such as brown, dark blue, grey, black and silver. 

These are the ABCs of glass frames for men, so when you’re on the lookout for cool men’s glasses frames, keep these factors in mind. There are a variety of unique men’s glasses frames out there for you to try. So, now that we’ve covered the basics let's head on to the finer details so you can make an informed purchase decision. 

What does your day-to-day life look like? Do you have an active lifestyle that involves woodwork or carpentry? Then you’ll need frames that are both light and tough enough to protect your eyes.

The next thing you need to consider is your face shape. You should buy frames that compliment your face shape. If you have an oval face shape, your best bet would be to go for oversized and wide frames. With the oblong face type, you can get lucky as it allows you to choose from more options. You can try square or even oval frames. For the heart-shaped face, opt for round and oval-shaped glasses that are thin.

Square-shaped faces also have an advantage when it comes to choosing glasses because this face type can support most frames. But to draw focus to the finest features of this face type, your best bets are dark, rounded glasses rather than angular ones. Going with rimless and semi-rimless glasses is a good place to start. A diamond face shape looks the best when paired with rimless, oval frames with a strong brow line. Round face types, on the other hand, go well with angular frames, which have a little width to give an illusion of a lengthened face. Full-rim and semi-rim frames are good options to go for. Lastly, triangle face shapes work well with wide frames. 

In terms of color see what will work best with your skin tone. If you have a warm skin tone avoid contrasting colors, white and black frames. Instead look for shades of brown, beige, or olive-green colors. If you have a cool skin tone, choose silver, white, black, pink, purple, grey, or darker turquoise shades. The frames are going to be close to your skin, hence you’ll want them to complement each other.  

You also need to think of the frame size. This will depend on the width of your face. Ideally, you’ll want your glasses to match the width of your face.

Now that you’ve got it all down, go ahead and grab yourself a pair of cool men’s glasses frames from our collection.
