Size Guide for Eyewear
Understanding Eyewear Size
As you begin to choose your Leisure Society frames, make sure they highlight your best facial features. And, while most faces are a combination of shapes and angles, there are four basic shapes Oval, Heart, Square and Round.
Below, you'll find a simple chart we’ve created to help you determine your face shape, and get you on your way to finding your perfect Leisure Society frames. But, before you get started, consider the following tried and true practices. Select frames that are in contrast with the shape of your face. For example, instead of a round frame on a round face, try an angular shaped frame. Also, the size of your frames should be in balanced proportion with the shape and size of your face. That should get you off to a good start. Use the chart below to discover your face shape.
