    I’ve got to get some sunnies (back to contacts/birthday pressie). Locally there isn’t much choice to try. So who has a narrow face and what do you wear? Also interested in fat faces that might want to flog a narrow set. Cheers!

    I too am afflicted with the narrow of face and struggle to find glasses that fit well.
    I settled on Oakley Fives, fit nicely indeed.

    Giros were stop on. Most of the reviews by fat faced journalists complained they were too narrow. Alas I don’t think they make them anymore, which is a shame as the lens were brilliant.

    Adidas evil eyes come in a smaller size and fit me ok.

    Oakley Fives mentioned above aren’t bad. Most Oakleys are a bit too wide for me.

    Probably some of the roadie Euro brands which are narrow but generally I also struggle to find something.

    Radars for me, small face generally, not just narrow.

    I think Smith do some frames for the smaller headed amongst us.
    I tried loads of Oakleys trying to find riding glasses, and Radars and Jawbones just looked utterly ridiculous on me.
    But I found that Flak Jackets aren’t too wide, and more recently I tried a pair of the Split Jackets which fitted pretty good.
    And another +1 for Oakley Fives for casual wear.

    Same here. Had a couple of pairs of Fives. Oakley do a narrower “Asian Fit” in a lot of styles, if you can track them down.

    Oakley Minutes are supposed to be for smaller faces.

    I have some Specialized Singletracks like these:

    That are waay too narrow for me and so have only been used a couple of times since new. Interested?

    i’ve had many a pair of oakleys. currently have a pair of a wires which are a perfect fit and a pair of sub zeros which are a bit on the wide side. best thing to do is go to a sunglasses hut outlet, try on as many pairs of oakleys as you can until you find a pair that fits and then order that model from eyewearoutlet.com for a much cheaper price. oakley do an asian fit range designed for smaller/narrower faces…
