These glasses are beautiful. They are really well made and even captured the interest of my oculist, who thought they were dead-stock vintage when they first saw them.
I wish the frames were wrapped in chestnut acetate like the sides but I understand, at this price point, that everything you’re getting is well worth it. If the exclusion of the chestnut wraps around the metal frames is a deal breaker for you there are plenty of people out there who can make wraps for these glasses.
Now as for the fit and proportions: they fit great for a medium width average wearer. Their proportions are superior to their Saville Row counterparts. I was going to order the far-more expensive Saville Rows at almost $500, but in order to get the right width, the lens height would make me look like a Chihuahua. Magnoli’s glasses, however, have a lens height that is far more complimentary to my average width face. That, and the incredible price point, sealed the deal for me. I am now anxiously awaiting their return from my oculist, modernized with polycarbonate lenses, anti-reflective coating and blue light filter. The future meets the past thanks to Magnoli Clothiers.
