More specs trying on - thoughts?

Got an order of specs from Warby Parker.  I don't think I'll have time to get an eye exam and get them filled before I leave on a long trip (next week), so I'll have to just catalog which (if any) I like and try after returning.

But I thought it a useful exercise anyway.

#1 - too small (but I do kind of like the light color - it's different)
#2 - also a bit small.  Color is too warm for me, I suspect
#3 - nice 
#4  - nice 
#5 - Are the lenses are too tall (deep?) for me?  

What are your thoughts?  Please tell me if any are brilliant - I'll be sure to write down the size and style so that I can order in March after I return from my trip.

(I did find another local store that carries specs, and might even find time to visit.  We'll see).

    Number4 gets my vote as well!I do think that there is too much lens below the eye in no 5.Hope this helps ,I find choosing new glasses such a nightmare.

    Just noticed that they have #4 in a red.  It wasn't available for home try on, but I suspect it might be a winner....

    #1 !

    Shape of #4 is very good. Killer in fact. Do you like the colour, Amy? I like it. 

  • Angie replied 6 years ago

    ooohhh. Just read that #4 comes in red. JACKPOT. 

  • amiable replied 6 years ago

    My husband DOESN'T like the color of #4.  But I like the shape, and they offer it in a color that I think he will like - a mottled dark red.  I'm going to hope they're still available when I return (or find out if I can get an eye exam and have them in under a week).

    LOVE THE RED. Wooohooooo. We have Killer Winners.

    4 is my fave shape, I think the bridge is very nice and looks like it fits you well. The dark mottled red will be gorgeous. I got burgundy spec two months ago and love them. They look great with everything, warm and cool.

    I also prefer 4 best. love the mottled havana.

  • anchie replied 6 years ago

    Yes, definitely, #4 in red. Will go with your phone too :)

  • amiable replied 6 years ago

    Got an eye exam for tomorrow.  They can rush shipping and have them here in 4 business days - in time for me to leave!  We'll see how it goes!  :)

    Hi, Amiable! I really like your new glasses and think they will look smashing on you in red. Great that they'll be ready for your trip.

  • Jaime replied 6 years ago

    Perfect! Bon voyage - where are you going?

  • amiable replied 6 years ago

    Shevia - I'm headed to France with my family.  We're going to renovate an old elementary school into a church retreat center and a home for the church leaders to live in.  We'll be there seven weeks.
