55mm lenses are great for petite faces..
on 21 June 2016
Great Quality.. but a little too small for me (So returned)
if you are trying to justify the cost to yourself, these polarised Aviators do feel reassuringly expensive; weighty but not too heavy to wear for long periods, well made and great colour combination in gold with green lenses.
Sadly for me, the 55mm lenses are just a little bit too small for my face. Aviators come in 55mm, 58mm and 62mm and whilst various sites and you tube videos say the 55s are for men and women, I think you'd have to have a VERY small head/face for these to not look like you've borrowed these from a girlfriend/wife. There were some angles I thought I may have got away with it but I felt quite self conscious wearing them, like I knew they were too small for me.
They looked great on my wife who is 5"1' and has quite a small face. They also looked very good on my 14 year old son. If you are more petite in stature or head size I would say this size if definitely for you. Otherwise, I would stick to the standard 58mm size.
