      Pulled the trigger on a pair of Meermin Double Monks. Now the waiting begins...

        @SDot - No worries. I will say they look a hell of a lot better in person than they do online. And I dunno if you're familiar with Cole Haan but they run 1/2 size small. I'm usually a 12 but in all 5 pairs of C.H. I wear a 11.5, even the boots.

          I pulled the trigger on my first pair of Meermins as well. The brown semi brogues. They arrive on election day!

            @tdig and Ryan : it would be nice if you could do a review with some pictures. I might buy a pair for my birthday in a few months.

                What size did you all order your Meermin's in? I'm really looking forward to find out how they fit most people compared to the AE 5 last.

                    So, I'm a little frustrated. I bought a pair of AO Original Pilots, which I loved in theory, but I'm just not sure if they're my thing. Admittedly, I'm waaaaaay past due for a haircut (I like it about 5-6 weeks shorter than this, before the wave starts developing over my forehead), but I don't think that'll change my mind, cause I still leave a lot. I don't know if its my hair that makes me think that or just that I feel my face looks too young for them (I'm only a 1st year grad student, and that's with skipping a grade in high school).


                    What do people think, should I return them in favor of something that doesn't have wire frames? Maybe Tortoiseshell something? Thoughts?

                        Navy herringbone jacket from GAP came today. I really like it and will keep it. For 63 dollars, it fits the bill.

                          I think they're just not the right shape/fit for your face, hon140. Sunglasses are tricky, and those sit a little high on your nose. If you like the style but not the fit, you might try Ray Ban Caravans, which fit a little differently (you can usually order them through Amazon with free shipping and returns).

                            I agree with Brooklyn. They just don't sit well on your face. But I have to admit...they almost look photoshopped. Maybe its the quaility of the camera! Ha!

                              I pulled the trigger and bought my first pair of red-hued pants: Target Merona tailored chinos with coordinated socks. The chinos were $19 on clearance and fit great. Their slim-fit cords in the same size barely made it up my thighs. Go figure.

                                That's a big help guys, glad to know that I'm not alone in feeling they're a bit...off. What shape lenses would you recommend; all I really care about is that they're very simple glasses.
