I have a small oval sized face and if I am not careful sunglasses tend to look overwhelming large. I found the wayfarer style to be the most flattering eyewear for my face. Wayfarers in general are the most popular style of eyewear in the world. Not surprising since they tend to look good on almost all shapes and sizes of faces.
Up until recently my go to casual eyewear has been Ray-Ban. I own several variations of their wayfarers and am for the most part satisfied. However, I recently came across the TOMS Lobamba Wayfarers with the blue mirrored lenses and I was instantly intrigued. Could there actually be another casual eyewear brand that I am interested in? Well, the official answer is yes.
TOMS never struck me as a company to purchase eyewear from, after all, their legacy is with their classic slip-on shoes – but once I saw the Lobamba Wayfarers in person, I was instantly impressed. They offer 100% UVA/UVB protection, have a nice looking hand-finished frame with 5-barrel rivet hinges and acetate construction. They look and feel like quality sunglasses, definitely worth the $139 retail price. I am also happy to report that I don’t get that annoying red indent on my nose after several hours of wear.
I went with the bold blue mirrored lenses, which I think looks hip – however, I am now considering the tortoise frame with gradient brown lenses for the days that I am not feeling so daring.
