Good but beware
I purchased these glasses to complete the character I am currently portraying. The glasses looked great when I opened the package but buyers should note that the glasses are made for an extremely narrow face. With a little bending and adjusting they can fit comfortably (I went to my optician for fitting) and the narrow width of the frame actually looks great no matter what size head you have. Just note that people with extremely wide heads will have some difficulty getting them to fit. Also there is no way to take the clear glass out of the frame and replace them with different lenses. Overall, the look is fantastic and the quality is good.

Squishing my skull
I love the look of the Victorian Spectacles I purchased; however, they are absolutely to small for a normal sized adult. I read in a few reviews that they were small, and another few that said they fit well. I decided to gamble on my luck. I lost... They are wearable for a short period of time, but not for even a partial day of reenacting. Please understand that this is a product issue, not a Historical Emporium issue. I love the company and will continue to purchase from them...just not these glasses.

Glasses that help
I bought the glasses at first because they looked good, then I found another and more important reason. My 5 year old grand son got glasses not to long ago. He hated wearing them because he thought it made him look funny. After I brought the spects and started wearing them, my grandson started wearing his because grampa was wearing his glasses... The galsses are great and I enjoy them a lot...

Good Specs
Good spectacle frames; will have my prescription lenses made to fit them. It would have been helpful to incorporate the width of the frames in the oolproduct information.

It should be noted...
Definitely small for a male but it fits fine for a female and they were VERY shiny so I dulled it down with nail polish remover to get the more authentic look. Overall I'm completely satisfied, but as long as people read these reviews and understand that the glasses are set to a small head frame they should be satisfied too.

Well designed
As with everything, it's not a one size fits all. It definitely isn't made for people with big heads. Fits me perfectly though and looks great. Quality is superb.

They work great. bit "snug" fit on the side. i take them off and there are indents where they were. thinking about maybe having them widened then have my actual lenses cut to the size of these glasses.

Decent Glasses
They are not bad for what you pay for them. And the look is really classic.

Ok, but flimsy and narrow
The good: The spectacles look sharp and give a nice Victoran flair. The lenses are smooth, with no distortion that I could make out.The bad: The frames are very thin; while mine arrived in excellent condition, it won't be long before the earpieces get bent out of shape. They are also narrow; if you have a large head, they will be tight on you. If you wear a large or x-large hat, you might want to give these a pass.
