Comments about Duluth Trading U.S. Military Issue Sunglasses - General 52mm:

These are quality from American Optical. I found the size was a bit small for me. I'm 5"11" and 170 lbs with a smaller head size 6-7/8, and an "average size" nose. These are very sturdy frames and temples. They do fit to your head snugly. But they pinch the bridge of the nose. I would not recommend adjustment with a needle-nose pliers or such. Go to an optician. They will do it for free. If you are in my size as described above, I'd recommend trying the 57mm first. And on the upside, the opticals are about as clear as you can get off the shelf. They will beat any designer sunglasses out there for clarity. If it weren't for the nosepiece, I'd add the 5th star.

      Comments about Duluth Trading U.S. Military Issue Sunglasses - General 52mm:

      So I got these in the mail and never order glasses online. They are way too small for my face but, they look great on my lady! Aviator type glasses usually are a bit too big so I ordered these thinking they would fit.

      Great quality, just too small for my noggin.

      Passed them to my lovely lady and she said she loves them so she gets these and I'm ordering the larger pair for myself instead of returning them. Probably the 58mm general issue.

              Comments about Duluth Trading U.S. Military Issue Sunglasses - General 52mm:

              Bought these as a gift for my husband, was torn on what size to order (still dumbfounded that you can select sunglass size by shirt size) he is a med. shirt and the sunglasses fit fine, however if one wanted to agrue to small/large, I would say they fit a bit on the small size, that being said I have not seen how large the 58mm are. If you have a large or wide head I would try the 58mm.
              We really like the look of these glasses, the frames did not look gold in the picture to me, when we got them they are definately GOLD, so if you are expecting something different you may not like them.
              They are sturdy for avaitor syle sunglasses, but if you are rough with them I could one wanting a sturdier style.
