Most important factors of designer frames for men

Eyeglasses, sunglasses and protective spectacles are provided by notable and subtle manufacturers in many models and styles. This even makes it hard for eyewear distributors to classify their products at local counters or online web pages. But a common practice taken by both traditional and online eyewear retailers is that eyewear products can be generally grouped into women’s, men’s and unisex types. The foundation behind this classification method is that there are general differences between male and female eyewear designs. Unisex styles can be ignored because they simply try to reduce these differences and gain a mixed effect. Now, it is the right time to say that designer frames for men and the counterparts for women have noticeable differences. Designer eyewear frames come from brands like Dior, Prada, Versace and many others. Any eyewear manufacturer or brand should first recognize the differences before designing their products.

For a majority of male customers, the most important factors of eyewear include comfort, fit and durability. These three considerations rank the highest among men. This finding is well backed. A survey carried out by the Vision Council revealed that about 88 percent of the respondents chose comfort and fit as the most important factors while selecting an eyeglass frame. And approximately 59% said that durability was the key factor. Now it is clear enough that designer frames for men should pay the highest priority to these three factors. Of course, there are sub-important factors or elements in men’s eyeglass frames. They include spring hinges and flexibility.

How a male buyer can make sure that these most valued factors are guaranteed? When it comes to comfort and fit, the simplest and most effective way is to have a try. The temples should not dig into the side of the head and the frame should never be too wide or too narrow. And the length of the temples should be checked that the curve at the end of a temple should extend over the ear without pressing down upon it. The factor of durability can be ensured by choosing designer frames for men that are made of titanium, stainless steel and flexible materials such as memory metal.
