How to personalize / “pimp” your sunglasses

I have had this sunglasses from Tom Ford for a while and the meaning was to use them with contact lenses but that never happened. So what to do with a perfectly good sunglasses when the eye subscriptions sounds like this 

Right eye -4.00 sph  -2.25 cyl 45 ° ADD 2.25 

Left eye -3.75 sph -2.50 cyl 115 ° ADD 2.25

Original Tom Ford Chris TF462 02N

If your prescriptions power is over -6.00 many producers of prescriptionglasses stop producing curved glasses, in this case +6D. 

But at least Shamir Portugal was able to do so and is known for goood glasses and great visual comfort. So I ordered one pair of progressive glasses from them.

The name of the glasses is Shamir Attitude III® Sport & Fashion

And best way to describe those glasses is to use shamir webpage 


I chose to use sport to fit my personal needs and use of the eyewear. 

Now the fun part to dismount the old glasses from the frame and,

The first step

trace the black frame and then order the glasses from Shamir and wait until they arrive

    Now they have arrived and glazing start

    There they are ready to be glazed

    Then its glazing and that takes time

    Copenhagen Specs Plein Les Mirettes

    A fresh breeze of innovation and not afraid of colors is the first thing that comes to mind when you see the stand.

    these two boys have made a collection that is exciting colorful and the shapes are theatrical

    and as always the photos describe it better than words but some frame colors were not able to be captured because of the shimmering light that makes the fram change from beige to shimmering pink

    And even though the collection is made for women was I able to find one frame that fits me perfectly 

    And you can see more and get in touch with them trough the website

    How to choose the right glasses

    Hi how are you?
    I have been asked to write about, how i help men to choose the right spectacles .
    That is not a easy task.
    First advise, take your girlfriend or wife with you before the final decision.
    Second is the shape of the face.
    • Round : should try to avoid round  or oval glasses, because it’s makes the  face more bold and more round. Try frames that are more rectangular so the face gets a visual feeling of being thinner, and for even more effect get frames, that are narrower at the bottom. (google Jack Nicholson and see what i mean.)
    • Oval: is very common face form, where the face is long from top to bottom, but with round corners. This is one of the easiest face forms to work with. Because you can use most of the frame forms. Round help thin mens to get more boldness, oval to put more focus on the eyes. Square frames make the face more masculine and rectangular makes the best harmony with the face form by horizontal rectangular make the face wider and the vertical rectangular make’s the face longer. (google Harrison Ford)
    • Square: this form can use round frames to soften the fairly hard form. Square frames get the most harmony and rectangular frames works  as well to make the face longer (google Arnold Schwarzenegger or Brad Pitt  )
    • Rectangular: is a fairly long face form, but as same as oval  it can take almost al type of frame forms. And the customer is able to change his face form with glasses make it more round with round frames and wide with more square frames or horizontal rectangular frames ( google Lyle Lovett or Ben Stiller)
    • Diamond is a face form where the thin chin point down but the  top is wide. This face takes best square frames or square with smaller bottom than the top. (google Bradley Cooper or Daniel Craig)

    Hope this will help, the next chapter is the color
