    Can anyone make a recommendation on a pair of frames for a typical wider Asian face with low nose bridge?

    I want to get a pair of black plastic frames, preferably under $300 :o

    i don't know any particular frames but i'd suggest squarish ones to contrast with your rounded features :dunno:

    Tried on a bunch of glasses today. Unfortunately there are not many frames that don't have grandpa style in 58 :hs:

    Gonna try to find some Tag Heuers wide tomorrow :hsd:

    Update-

    Found some good glasses for people who need 56+

    Range Rover - despite the brand, these were very nice frames. Made in France with Titanium and exotic wood detailing. ($400 with lens :hsd: )

    Tag Heuer - if you like the frameless look, these are pretty nice.

    I ended up buying a pair of John Varvatos in 58 :eek4:
