For my money, Calobar sunglasses are the greatest. From fun creative designs, to classics, they're always unique. Of course, these sunglasses fall into the fun category. In a cream, almost a pale yellow color, they have a center layer of black. Scalloped corners and matching scallops on the temples give a whimsical feel to these sunglasses. But what's so great, is the black layer is exposed all the way around the frames, creating a subtle border.

In excellent vintage condition, these sunglasses are pristine. They have their original green glass lenses, and as far as I can tell, there is not a scratch on them. They have no Rx and are ready to wear! Be the envy of all your friends 'cause nobody will have anything quite like these!

The measurements are:
Lens width - 48 mm
Bridge width - 22 mm
PD* - 72 mm
Inside temple to temple - 5 1/16"""
Across front - 5 3/8"
Temple length - 5 3/8"

These sunglasses would be considered a size large.

The lens width is taken horizontally across the lens at the widest point, and the bridge width is the measurement across the bridge from one lens to the other. While each number is important on it's own in terms of how the lenses are centered over your eyes, adding the together gives you a general idea of how big the frames are. For instance, I wear a 46/22 in a cat eye frame, which added together is a 68, making them a medium to medium large. If you're a person who needs a large frame, try to find one with a combined measurement as close to 70 as possible; a small frame would be closer to a combined measurement of 60 or 62.

*Another measurement is the "PD" or pupil distance; this is the approximate length in mm from center to center of each lens. You can measure your own pupil distance in the mirror with a ruler, or measure an existing pair of frames that look good on you. While your eyes don't have to be exactly centered in each lens, try to get it close
