I have a real soft spot for a cat eye frame made by Lumar....they always seem to have a nice, balanced cat eye shape. And their designs, so unique!

These cat eye frames are no exception. The black eye pieces are backed by a clear striped plastic, allowing the black to show through the back and creating a great black and white stripe look on the back of the glasses and temples. The tips of the cat eyes are also clear striped and tipped with a solid triangle of black. These are Lumar style 633.

NOS, or new old stock, the frames are vintage but never had lenses put in. With the black and white, they would make the most gorgeous sunglasses and are truely one of a kind.

The measurements are:

Hinge to hinge - 4 5/8"
Inside temple to temple - 4 7/8"
Temple length - 5 1/2"
Across front - 5 3/8"
lens - 46 mm
bridge - 20 mm

These frames are a good size, considered a medium to a medium large, fitting lots of folks.

A simple way to check for fit is to enlarge the front view photo to the measurements given above. Print, and cut the glasses out, then stick the mock up glasses on your nose. From this you can get a general idea of how the scale of the frames looks on you. Sounds silly, but it does work!

How to measure glasses:
The lens width is taken horizontally across the lens at the widest point, while 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 them together gives you a general idea of how big the frames are. For instance, I wear a 46/20 in a cat eye frame, which added together is a 66, making them a medium. 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.
