Your perfect fit

Your perfect fit

There’s a perfect frame for every face shape. At Barner we want to help you find the best style to compliment your look.

Here’s a guide to figure out the most flattering frames for your face! 

Remember that all our glasses are 100% functional and stylish, with the digital generation in mind, ultra-light and super comfortable, which one will you choose?


Learning how to measure your face

We know that figuring out your face shape can sometimes be confusing. There are different types and pretty often the differences between one and another are very subtle.

But finding out your exact type can be very helpful in the long run. We know that, when they’re matched correctly, computer glasses can completely redefine your professional or personal image and style.

Oval Faces are easy to identify because they are longer than they are wide, with no sharp angles. 


Here is our guide on how to take your exact measurements:

JAWLINE

Take a horizontal measurement of the width of your jawline, from the start of your jaw below your ear to the other side.

FACE WIDTH

Take a horizontal measurement of the width of your face: cheekbone to cheekbone.

FOREHEAD

Take a horizontal measurement of the width of your forehead.

FACE LENGHT

Take a vertical measurement from your hairline to the bottom of your chin.

With these measurements handy, we can guide you to identify your specific face shape and discover the most flattering frame style from our collection.

Finding the perfect computer glasses for your face shape

Finding the perfect computer glasses for your face shape

We are to help you choose the most complimentary glasses that perfectly match your face. When it comes to identifying the best frames; a general rule, opposites always attract!

For example, for rounder faces, rectangular frames are best. On the other hand, curvy frames are perfect for angular bone structures.

A very symmetrical and balanced face with full cheeks and a rounded chin, which works well with angular frames that highlight the eyes and the cheekbones by adding structure.  


> Frames to explore: Square and rectangular frames with bold colors will stylize this type of face and accentuate the eyes. Don’t be afraid to experiment with wider and more colorful frames. If you like colors, we have a specially created wide selection of tones to choose from!

Understanding frame sizes

Understanding frame sizes

Because we know every face is unique, we have specified the size of our frames in the description of every model with three consecutive numbers: lens width, bridge width and temple length. These numbers will always be indicated in millimeters.

Example: Size: 50-20-135 (Lens Width, Bridge Width and Temple Length)

This measurement is always taken horizontally and it indicates the length of the frame that will hold the lens. This is a great factor to take into account depending on the distance of your eyes from the bridge of your nose.

The bridge refers to the part that connects both lenses and that sits on top of your nose.
The bridge width is a horizontal measurement that will give you important information about

the distance between both lenses. Ideally, the bridge should stay as close as possible to the
top of your nose.

The temple length refers to the measurement of the arm from the lens frame that reaches
back behind your ears.

How to choose the right bridge fit

How to choose the right bridge fit

The way the glasses fit on your nose is a very important factor when choosing the perfect frame size. Ideally, you should be able to bend over and move your head comfortably without your glasses moving.

There are two common nose bridges to take into account:

Wide nose bridge: your perfect choice if your nose is wider and your eyes have a larger separation between them. Look for measurements starting at 20mm.

Check out

20 mm: Chamberi Collection and Le Marais Collection

22 mm: Shoreditch

20 mm: Williamsburg Collections

Narrow nose bridge: go for this type if your eyes are closer together and your nose is narrow. The numbers to look for are 18mm and 19mm.

19 mm: Kreuzberg Collection

Here's a trick:

If your old glasses sat too high on your nose, that means the bridge was too small; in contrast, if your glasses were constantly sliding down your nose, it means the bridge was too wide.

Our lightest frames have been made with an ultra-light material, TR-90, that weighs only 0.35 oz. (10gr.). If you want an ultra-light feeling, check out our Chroma collection !

Our Mazzu Collection is made of Acetate Mazzuchelli, a sturdier material that has a slightly heavier feeling.

Tip: If your face shape is quite small and your sunglasses tend to be too big, we recommend you choosing our Barner kid’s size glasses. 


A great tip for choosing the perfect size

If you already have an old pair of favorite sunglasses, we recommend you check their size. Use these three measurements described above, and it'll give you the perfect reference to know the best size for your face!

KIDS FIT GUIDE

When choosing the best frames for kids, there are three main factors to keep in mind: lightweight, flexibility and a comfortable texture.

Our Chroma collection is made from super light material, with flexible temples and it also has a rubberized texture, so the glasses adapt perfectly and securely to kids' noses and ears.
