Frame material is one of the most important factors to be considered while selecting a pair of eyeglasses and sunglasses by either ladies or gentlemen. Until now, there are mainly three major categories of materials that can be and have been used to make eyeglass frames. The first category is plastics, including cellulose acetate, cellulose propionate, nylon and polycarbonate and so on. The second group contains metals like Monel, titanium, beryllium, stainless steel, Flexon and aluminum and the others. All unusual materials can be grouped into the third category, including silver, gold, wood, bone, buffalo horn, leather and even stones. It is hard to make a conclusion about which material or materials are most suitable for a certain group of people. When we try to make a gender consideration, all materials are acceptable by both men and women. In this article, we discuss plastic frames for men in particular and how to choose an appropriate model.
There are some major factors that can be taken to evaluate the well-being or overall performance of a pair of eyeglasses. Comfort, fit, durability and appearance are some of the most widely considered aspects. The first three points are more important and more frequently appreciated by male users, while eyewear appearance or look means usually more for ladies. In today’s market, there are many plastic frames for men that can meet the three requirements well, including comfort, durability and fit. Making a generic comparison, plastic frames are lighter than metal frames, even though scientists have invented some lightweight metals. Lightness is quite critical in bringing a comfortable feeling to male wearers. When it comes to durability, plastics like polycarbonate and memory plastic are perfect materials because they both feature extreme durability contributed by their natural properties.
The above paragraph gives an answer to which exact materials will be good options for plastic frames for men. In this paragraph, we suggest that male eyewear users should also consider other factors while selecting a pair of plastic framed eyeglasses. For gentlemen, it is important to choose a neutral color that reflects personality and lifestyle. The exact style selected should accentuate personal wardrobe and the frame shape should complement personal facial shape.
