    Not perfect but nice glasses - 6/3/2015
    By: from Vermont

    I really wanted these glasses to work for me but my large head does not accommodate these. I did like the quality but they fit rather loosely on my head and I have a fairly large round head. I would recommend them.

    Why be frumpy, when you can look cool in these reading glasses. Take the plunge, buy them and receive compliments from your friends.

    junk for the price - 4/27/2015

    I have had two pairs of these glasses. I like the look, they are comfortable. But, both pairs have broken. They warp, bend, then break. For the price, these glasses are junk.

    This is my second pair of readers "economist" from Orvis. Sadly, I lost my first pair after 5+ years while traveling recently. You wont find a more comfortable pair of readers anywhere. They are sturdy, and very stylish. In fact, I receive a complement on them most everywhere I go. And they easily fit in a pocket. Don't kid yourself and purchase many pairs of cheap readers from the drug store - these are a great value in the long run. Plus you always have the unbeatable Orvis Customer Service should you need it... but you likely won't.

    First pair of reading glasses - 1/18/2014
    By: from Raleigh, N.C.

    Orvis's Economist Reading Glasses are my first pair. I've needed reading glasses for awhile, but avoided them because I didn't like the design and look that I saw at most retailers. But in several recent visits to my Orvis store, I kept eyeing the collection. I like my new glasses because of their stylish, sophisticated look. Saving up for a second pair so I can keep one at home and one at work.

    I had hoped they were as cute on as I imagined...and they were! They are unique and fun plus well made! Who could ask for more! I think they are men's, but I love them anyway.

    Librarian Slippers! - 12/31/2013
    By: from Franklin,MA

    I like these glasses but they are a bit wide in the frame for me. Due to this, they slide down my nose even though the screws are as tight as they can be. I am not sure what to do, but plan to take them to an Optical store for some adjustment. Otherwise, I love the way they look and the lenses are great"

    Stylish and well made reading glasses. Supplied with a good protective case. No lens cloth supplied despite the price. Whilst I feel they are somewhat overpriced I would still recommend them.
