[i]I don’t have much to add, although it sounds like you went for style over comfort.
I recently got 2 pairs of new glasses earlier this year, because my eyesight had deteriorated, and I needed new lenses . Up until then, I’d been wearing a pair that I got back in 2013. In terms of quality, my new frames are on par with my old ones ( they’re all ‘designer’ frames ).
My favourite of the 2 fits like a glove, and I keep them in storage for fancy occasions ( this is how my brain works, I save my best/favourite things because I think they are too good for daily use ).
The other pair which I use for every day use ( work, and relaxing at home ) keeps sliding down the bridge of my nose. Also, for the first few months, it was leaving a bruise on the left side of my nose where the plastic pad rests on my nose.
Epicperon made a great observation about those nose pads. Rubber would be superior to plastic. I had t noticed until he mentioned it, but the nose pads on my amazing glasses are rubber, and the nose pads on the shitty pair that I currently have on are plastic, and it makes a huge difference in comfort, and fit.[/i]
Sorry, I forgot to get back to you. Honestly, I never choose style over comfort. Hoss, I wear Carhartt pants that are almost as soft to the touch as my wife's leggings and loose tank tops that are very soft as well. My whole existence is about comfort. I tried on every single frame they had and I went with these because of their quality rating and because they felt the best. There was one other that felt almost as comfortable, but the weight was more, as it was a full frame.
I do have the rubber pads and the glasses place, they replace them every time, plus they do free maintenance on the frames anytime, so I keep them in good repair. I even try very hard to only take them straight off and not whip them off to the side.
