Glasses for Jiale

Frames that fit don’t squish the side of your head or pinch your nose. The edge of the frame material (not the edge of the lens) should more or less be flush with where your face ends. The lenses shouldn’t touch your cheeks, and the glasses should slide no more than 5mm max when you’re moving about or particularly uh... moist.

Lenses
Bridge
Notes
1
Rectangular / Square / Cat-Eye
54-56
17-19
Anything that is wider horizontally. These should fit higher on your nose, so the bridge should be smaller.
2
Round / Geometric
50-52
19-21
Anything that is generally the same size horizontally / vertically. These usually fit lower on the nose, so the bridge is wider.

Temple (arm) length doesn’t matter too much as long as it’s not wildly longer than your current ones.
Overall frame size should be whatever the sites categorise as medium. The total measurements they give tend to be way off (I’ve measured them when they come in and find that they are often off by at least 10-15mm), so I never rely on them; it’s more important that the lens and bridge fit.
Your lens depth should be 40mm max. (Anything past this is a bit deep, and even this depth can look oversized if you’re not used to it. Looks best in frames with a rounded underside rather than fully square frames.)
You can swap your bridge / lens measurements around within a 3-4mm adjustment and generally be OK fit-wise as long as they’re big enough overall. For example, my 100% ideal lens/bridge size is: 54-17. This fits exactly where I want them to sit with the right amount of width for the lens, but I have a pair that’s in 51-20 that’s quite comfortable overall (they’re a rounder pair that sits lower).
Here are some indie-ish eyewear sites I’ve either ordered from or kept an eye on. Some of the other more established ones out there (like Clearly, Eyebuydirect, etc. are much more pricey as they’re still under the Luxottica grip) I haven’t included here for obvious reasons.

3-5 years full time wear, 6+ part time wear
This is the pioneer ordering online glasses site. They have a huge selection as well as a filter/accommodation for universal/low/Asian bridge fit. I abuse mine daily (I outright sit on them sometimes) and they’ve held up really well. I would recommend looking here first for anything you like before heading to the other sites especially if you’re looking at frames with metal components.

3-4 years part time wear, 2 years full time wear
I like the quality of this site a lot, but I haven’t gotten any metal frames from them. I am not sure how the components will hold up to sweat etc. They don’t have universal/low/Asian bridge fit as a feature listed, but I’ve had good luck with their styles fitting quite nicely on me.

2-3 years part time wear, 1 year full time wear
The quality of this site is OK, I’ve ordered from them in the past before there were more options for fun frame sites but their metal is prone to tarnishing if you’re sweaty like me. Won’t happen for at least a year or so though. They don’t have universal/low/Asian bridge fit as a feature listed, but I’ve had good luck with their styles fitting quite nicely on me.

Probably 3-5 years full time wear, 6+ part time wear. Since they carry some brand names their standard is likely higher.
I’ve only ordered some cheap non-Rx sunnies from them and they’re OK. They have universal/low/Asian bridge fit options. From reviews their in-house brand frame quality is pretty good, and they carry some brand names. This is the cafe shop in Kitsilano, so you can go and try them on.
Apparently I can invite you to the referral program, but I need your name and email. Not sure what discounts you get.
They used to have a 1st pair free coupon, I’m not sure if it still works, but it’s FREEKITS.
You pay for shipping.
If you select a frame not in their “free” collection you get $99 OFF.
Coatings (anti-reflective etc.) are extra, but only about $10-$20 bucks.

1-2 years part time wear, 1 year full time wear
I ordered from this site way back and they have some OK frames, but they’re not the best quality. I didn’t end up wearing them very much because they weren’t as comfortable as the above sites but they may have improved recently, can’t confirm. Haven’t interacted with their customer support.
My referral link gets you 100 points after you make your 1st purchase:
10 points is $1 off, so you essentially get $10 dollars off your next purchase.

Probably not too bad, comparable to Zenni at least as they are a well-established USA-based brand.
Haven’t bought from this site, but they have a neat setup where you can swap the “tops” for your glasses so you can get some fun designs for the days you are feeling spicy. Plastic-only at this point and I believe when I emailed them once they confirmed they didn’t technically have universal/low/Asian bridge fit so caveat emptor.

Probably not too bad, comparable to Zenni at least as they are a well-established Euro-based brand.
Haven’t bought from this site, but their frames look quite reasonable. They don’t have a filter for universal/low/Asian bridge fit and I haven’t tested them personally so caveat emptor.
