I see Gucci add everywhere – on most of websites I go to, on billboards in the city, subway stations etc. This makes Gucci one of the most aggressive brands in fashion industry. Gucci is also very productive. Gucci sunglasses 2013 collection is a proof. Here are my favorite models of this year:

But there are certain wardrobe elements that are weather proof. Well… almost weather proof. Shoes, purses and jewelry are just some. Sunglasses, of course are too.

Sunglasses for Big Heads. Tips, Ideas, Styles.

Many men find it challenging to chose a nice pair of sunglasses because they have a big head. Are you one of them? Don’t worry, everyone has their own problem and while it’s true many optical stores don’t offer wide selection of glasses for big heads necessarily it does not mean that people with average sized or small heads have large choices. Finding glasses is not like finding shoes. Nose bridge, cheek bones, ear positioning, face shape – all adds their own layer of complexity to finding right glasses. In this post we would like to offer tips to finding glasses for big heads. And offer some nice styles to chose from.

How big is big?

Ok, first let’s see what would be considered “big head”. If to look through majority of designer sunglasses offered for sale today, size over 142 mm in width would be big. In addition, lens over 64 mm and bridge 18 mm or more would qualify as big.

Frame width 146mm + Lens width 64mm + Bridge width 18mm +

How to know your size?

Take a ruler, ideally plastic that can bend a bit and measure your head from one temple to another. Keep in mind that glasses normally extend a few cm on the side. If you have a pair of sunglasses that fit, it is easier to take measurements from it following the pictures above. If you are lucky you will find some measurements printed on the side of the temple of your glasses. Today, most of the glasses specify lens width, bridge width and temple length. Writing will be something like this: 63 x 17 136. First two numbers are lens and bridge width. The last number is temple length. Temple size is of less concern as it is usually made in proportion and if too large can stick out a bit – it’s normal. Just make sure you don’t assume that 136 is frame width, it’s not. Frame width needs to be calculated: 2 x Lens width + Bridge width. So, in our example: 63 x 2 + 17 = 143 mm.

Glasses styles for big head

Many styles will fit. You are lucky this year because trend is actually toward bigger sunglasses, so choices are huge. Some men like rectangular sunglasses, especially if they have a very round head. Square glasses will balance it out. All time classics aviators will also fit many face shapes and very big heads. They are already made very large by design and will cover the eye from all directions. Just keep in mind that aviator glasses were initially made for sport, so even now when there are many variations of the shape, aviators tend to look more casual than rectangular glasses. I personally really like shield shape on big head men. Shields wrap around the face in front adding some trendiness to the look. There are also shields with combination of aviator drop shape – good option for stylish men. This year you will find nice Dior Homme and Gucci sunglasses inspired by Carrera style – two lenses that blend on the bridge. This is a true military look. Check our suggestions.

It’s Clubbin’ Time

With final few weeks before holidays some of my friends have a party to attend 3-4 times a week. Of course even very infrequent celebrators most likely go to a club or lounge type venue to celebrate. Would you like to look AMAZING this season? Here is a tip for you – get a pair of clubbing sunglasses.

What is it?

Gucci 2846

It is sunglasses with light colour lens, often gradient colour that were styled to compliment your night celebration style. Since the idea is not really to protect you from the sun, these often come with a lens of some bright color such as yellow, pink, blue, purple etc.

What’s fun about them?

Well, there are lots of fun factors. One would be the look. You may not have had time to put on a fancy makeup, especially given the busy work schedule in the end of year. These shades will hide your imperfections.

When you wear such a beautiful accessory you can devote less attention to clothing. Clubbing shades will attract so much attention that what you wear will be less of a factor.

Do they have UV protection?

Yes. High quality clubbing shades, and we only sell those in EyeInform store, do have 100% UV protection. You absolutely can wear them to protect your eyes from the sun. You will find them much more comfortable during sunset or during the non-shiny days as compared to your full blown dark sunglasses. Sun may not be shining bright, but it still produces UV harmful to your eyes and skin, so these glasses will be an amazing alternative.

Here are our recommendations from our in-store collection
