Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Let’s take the example of the standard size “48—19—140” (you can find this measurement, listed like this, under “size as marked” in our listings.”)

“48” represents the size of the lenses (on most frames, the width across the front face.) In most womens frames, this size can go from 42-50, with some variance. In most men’s frames, this initial size is on average between 48-54.

“19,” our second number, is the bridge sizwhich ensures how the frame fits your nose.

Finally, “140” is the temple length, or essentially how long the temple arm is in order to hook over your ears.

Comparing these number in your current glasses to those provided in our listings will help you feel confident in selecting the right pair for you.

Can I Install My Own Eyeglass or Sunglass Lenses in Your Frames?

Yes! All of Oliver & Alexa's eyeglasses are guaranteed "Optical Ready" which means they are ready to be lensed at your local opticians.

What Does Deadstock and NOS (New Old Stock) Mean?

We specialize at Oliver & Alexa in Deadstock and NOS (New Old Stock) frames, which means that these frames are authentically vintage (at least 20-years-old and often more than a half-a-decade or older) but were never lensed or worn, but instead sat in storage.

Deadstock and NOS frames are prized by vintage collectors because their condition is vintage pristine and they lend themselves to heat-treatment and lensing more easily.
