I've never bought a pair of 'alt-fit' before -- as an Asian I always thought I was limited to wearing oversized glasses, had to look specifically for adjustable nose pads etc. Turns out I was wearing glasses not suited for my nose and bone structure all along! These look FANTASTIC - slightly cat eye which is super flattering, not too big, not too small. Not only that, they are so comfortable on my face, don't slide off and don't hit my cheeks at all. Theses particular glasses come with a hard case, and the acetate and hinges are good quality. These are truly lifechanging - I can't believe this is how everyone else experiences wearing sunglasses!!!
