We love Raymond Chandler, the creator of the eloquent detective Philip Marlowe. Here's one of our favorite quotes of his: "Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it." We think the quote is especially apt, since it refers to our capability, our motivation, and our attitude – to make high-quality glasses as affordable as possible. A case in point: this full-rim, round, medium-size, faux-wood hypoallergenic acetate Unisex's eyeglasses frame, which looks like the kind of glasses Chandler wore. Available in streaked blond and gray-green versions, these glasses have stainless steel rods embedded in the temple arms to make them easy to adjust. Wear these glasses, and your vision will be so clear you might come up with a line like this: "She smelled the way the Taj Mahal looks by moonlight." If you're talking about your sweetie, and the two of you want matching glasses, have her check out models 100015 or 100017, or the Unisex models 187821 or 187812.

Rough wood cut my face

Pros Stylish

Cons Uncomfortable

Sizing Feels True To Size

The glasses looked great and stylish. But, after just one day of use, the rough wood frame irritated the bridge of my nose and let to bleeding. Having worn glasses for the last 26 years, I have never had this problem. Too bad. If the frames were smoother, they would be great. I never wore them again

I love the style of these frames. I purchased with blue mirror finished lenses and use as my sunglasses. They’re so fun! I’m really disappointed, though, because of the quality. These feel like wood and in turn the frames feel like tongue depressors around my head. The screws fall out of these too.

The color is actually more teal and oddly sometimes a bit purple in certain light. They’re gorgeous! I have blue eyes and the deep teal tint really works with my eye color so well. The shape is adorable. I can really see my eyes with this frame shape / style. The texturing is really beautiful.

Cheap plastic frames

Cons Poor Quality

Most expensive of six pairs I bought from Zenni, and the cheapest frame quality of them all. Plastic is matte, feels rough and unfinished. Edges are sharp. Huge disappointment.

1st time I am not satisfied with my order. Prescription is fine but the glasses feel stiff , not at all durable, lenses feel like they might pop out when I am gently cleaning them with the included cloth - not true to the color but I expected some variance. I am disappointed.

I want to love these glasses. Comfortable and do not scratch my ears like some reviewers mentioned. So cool and stylish. Definitely look like wood. They just don't work for me - large & round & look like coke bottle. Color is very light. I am blonde and they clash with my hair and fair skin. So sad.

Unfortunately even though these glasses look great they are unwearable. The temples are sharp enough they cut into my ears and the bridge is designed in such a way that the glasses slide down my nose making the temples cut into my ears even more.
