Too big
I really enjoy the look bit the monocle is too large for my face and falls when speaking or singing maybe offer different sizes.

Spandifilous. Grand. Stays installed just fine due to the little added helper frame.

Excellent monocle
A British Gent would not be caught without a "proper" monocle such as this.

It took a little while to get used to but once you get the trick to holding it in, it is well worth the look; but eating is physically impossible while keeping it in.

Well made, too big
I have to agree with everyone else who noted the size of the monocle as being too large. It's certainly well made, just too large. I attempted to bend the eyepieces but ended up breaking one of them. I also concur that the lanyard looks pretty tacky. I replaced it with a length of thin black ribbon.

Meh
Nothing wrong with it... It is a costume monocle... Slightly too large to stay in the eye. The smallest bit smaller would be much better.

5 Star Seal of Approval
I held a holiday Soirée for my break from school, and I bought my guests monocles as a "Thank You For Coming" gift. Everybody loved them, of course! The mixture of suits, tuxedos, and dresses with these monocles was spectacular. I actually couldn't have been any happier to have ordered them. The quality and genuine look are really something to take note of; they shipped very quickly as well. If you're looking for monocles for your leisure, stage production, filming, or anything else really, I would recommend these 110%

Great Hat
The hat arrived ahead of schedule and was very good quality - we were very happy with it. The Adult Small size fit our 11 year old son (the intended recipient) perfectly and he's small for his size so look at the sizing carefully.

Don't Waste Your Money...
This monocle, while good looking and nicely priced, is so overly large it is unusable. You *WILL* be disappointed, as I was, upon receiving it. There is no way a normal human can keep this in position without resorting to spirit gum or some other adhesive. Find another one of their fine products, but this should be removed from their offerings.

Monocle
This item appears to be well made, although the cord is not the greatest; however, the round metal frame is very large. It is too large for my husband, who is a large man.

Great Monocle!
It is exactly what I wanted: A basic monocle with which to express surprise and make snide remarks. I have directed friends and coworkers to this site to buy their own.

WAY TOO BIG!
I'm an average male, 185 lbs. and 5'10. This monocle is too big to hold on my face and I have tried every possible way to wear it.

High quality but one size does not fit all
This is a great monocle and very modestly priced. The craftsmanship is high quality. Unfortunately, I can't wear it. If I "make" it fit my eye socket I can't blink. It would be great if the gallery were deeper so that it would sit in the eye socket while keeping the lens proud of the lashes. I would definitely buy it again. I just wish I could wear it.

Bigger than expected
Nice quality, super fun. Needs a different string (or very light weight chain), the one it came on is just a bit too heavy/stiff. It was too big for my (small female) face, but fit hubby's face just fine.

Didn't Work Out
I ignored the other reviews which stated that this monocle was overly big and difficult to wear. It turned out they were right. Also, one of the little metal arms fell off. Kind of a waste of money.

I was truly impressed with the speed, accuracy and quality of the product and process. In fact, I mistakenly chose the wrong version and was able to correct it with a "live" person after the order was submitted.

Illuminated Loupe

Loupe
The illuminated loupe is a great attention getter and conversation piece. It is a bit distracting to wear for any length of time (imagine walking around with one eye closed). I also found that the metal band tends to slip off the back of my head. Great item if you have a need for an illuminated loupe, but an awkward piece to wear around at a party.

An absolute hit!
Of all the pieces I bought from Historical Emporium, this Illuminated Loupe was hit of the evening. It was commented on by everyone who saw it. A touch of steampunk, a touch of tech and a touch of fantasy depending how you use it with any outfit.

NOT BAD
I like it a lot however it is not made very well. As soon as I touched it some of the glued on rivets fell off and I had to super glue them back on. The tag on the strap is in a bad spot and had to be trimmed and colored into hide. Nothing really that serious took all of 5 min to fix. The only thing i did not expect was it throws your vision off a lot and gives me a head ach if i have it on too long. The tint on the lens is cool. I used my dremel and added many accessories to it. All and all for the price you just canít go wrong.

Neat accessory, but...
I purchased the monoggle expecting it to be an instant part of my steampunk costume. While it is better than many of the elope-brand goggles I've been seeing around, I can't help feeling a little dorky wearing it, especially with the giant elastic band on it. It's really awesome, but I tend to prefer to wear it with a hat, so as to cover up the band. Overall, great product, but less unive3rsal in style than I was expecting. The customer service, however, is phenomenal! :) I asked for style reccommendations, nand they totally e-mailed me with reccomendations for style depending on what I was going for. Very cool. :)
