I ordered the black Archies because I liked them- they were a different style,and were a lot nicer than the usual plastic or metal ones you'd find at the big-box stores. Overall, I'm very thrilled with them-my only gripe is they were a bit heavy and on the snug side leg-wise, but I soon grew accustomed to the difference. I will definitely be ordering from you again!!

Pros
Lightweight, Sturdy, Comfortable, High Quality, Stylish
Cons
Heavy

My only beef is that the color depicted in the photo on the website does not begin to represent accurately the color of the frames. The frames are dark brown--not really tortoise at all. Apart from that they are great: stylish, they fit my face really well and I can read without any difficulty.

Pros
Accurate Magnification, Lightweight, Sturdy, Comfortable, High Quality, Stylish

These are serious, studious looking glasses, and a bit nerdy, but that is exactly what I was looking for. I work in an academic environment and these glasses fit right in here.

Pros
Sturdy

These are lightweight, comfortable, serious and fun. After reading a few other reviews mentioning the sides falling off, I've been extra-gentle with them as I like them very much, and, as they are only for reading, they are on and off my face all the time. So far so good.

Uneven magnification1/6/2016

I would like these glasses very much IF they would magnify correctly over the whole lense. In the center they work ok, but if you look up, down, right or left, they start to change the magnification factor towards lower values.

Pros
Lightweight, Comfortable, Stylish
Cons
Poor Quality

I am using them right now as I write this... they are so much more fun to wear than the ones usually found in the grocery store rack. I am a 71 year old guy who grew up reading Archie comic books...and they are very comfortable and work as intended...good price too!! highly recommended.
