Progressive Reading Glasses for Men

You know what never goes out of style? Convenience. For the modern gentleman with multifaceted vision needs, bifocal glasses certainly offer a great solution. Progressives, on the other hand, offer up a perfect one. Designed to accommodate both near and far vision, these innovative lenses feature your up-close prescription in the bottom third of the lens, your distance prescription in the top third, and an area in the middle that gradually transitions between the two. 

Translation: you only need to own one pair of glasses. And that pair can be almost any frame from our expansive collection, barring just a few too tiny to hold all that vision correction. No more switching back and forth between your readers and distance glasses – and if you want to be really ahead of the times, you can even add sunglasses into the mix with a transition lens.

How to Choose the Best Men’s Reading Glasses for You

How to Choose the Best Men’s Reading Glasses for You

Now that you’re up-to-date on the latest trends in men’s reading glasses, let’s dive into the nitty-gritty of finding the perfect pair for your unique needs and preferences. Here are some key considerations to ensure you find the ideal frames for your individual style and needs.

What’s my Face Shape?

Let’s face it: to find the most flattering fit possible, it’s a good idea to get a read on your face shape. Understanding what frame styles gel best with your face shape is the key to kicking your look up a couple notches beyond suave, after all. There’s a whole range of face shapes from square to diamond to heart, but if you’re hard-pressed to tell the difference, determining whether your face is more angular or more round is a huge help. Go ahead, take a long, hard look at yourself in the mirror.

Square Face Shape

If you have a square jawline or otherwise sharp, angular features, we commend you on your chiseled good looks, and you’ll be glad to know you can own a wide range of frame styles with ease. Consider opting for round or oval frames to soften your angles and add balance to your facial proportions. Alternatively, square or rectangular frames can call some well-deserved attention to your impeccable cheekbones and strong jaw. 

Round Face Shape

For those with a rounder face shape and softer features, opt for frames that add structure and definition. Angular designs like square or rectangular frames create contrast and chisel out your features. Steer clear of round frames, as they can accentuate the roundness of your face and make it appear fuller than it really is.

How to Choose a Frame Color

The most important part of eyewear hunting is having fun, so we made sure the sky’s the limit when it comes to the hues you have to choose from. Whether your look leans more Don Draper or Elton John, there’s a color out there to suit every style and personality. Consider factors such as your skin tone, hair color, and personal preferences when selecting the right frame color for you.

Choosing the Right Frame Size

When it comes to your frames, size does indeed matter. Quite crucially, we might add. A handsome face like yours deserves readers that fit like a well-tailored suit; one that looks and feels like it was professionally, precisely tailored to you. 

If you’re new to bespoke lenswear, know that your head size can be classified as narrow, average, or wide, and that we have dashing pairs aplenty no matter which category you fall into. Frame dimensions such as width, height and temple length can help you find a pair that suits your face shape and size. Eyewear jargon sounding like Greek to you? Our Fit Guide will get you squared away. If you’re unsure about sizing, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team for personalized recommendations.

How do I Find the Perfect Frames?

If we were to boil all our advice down to one idea, it would be this: pick the frames you most see yourself in. It’s a tad cheesy, but eternally true: it won’t matter how amazing your new frames look with your hairdo or how much they make your jawline pop if they don’t feel unequivocally like you.

So, gents, there you have it: we’ve given you all the tools you’ll need to ensure your new readers are the perfect wingmen. The right pair will fit comfortably, complement your face shape, and most importantly, give you the confidence to stare down whatever comes your way. Happy hunting!
