So often we have customers come to us asking for larger than average frames.  Fortunately, one of the ideas behind the Black Eyewear label is ‘vintage styles for today’s faces‘.  We have a variety of large frames to offer men and women.

What does large mean when it comes to choosing frames? Of course the measurements are important.  An average lens width would measure 45 or 48mm while some Black Eyewear models measure 56 or even 60mm.  But the overall size and thickness of the frame must also be taken into consideration.  Are you looking for a wide frame or a chunky frame, a large lens area or a large frame area?

Here are a few of our largest designer glasses for men and women:
