Size Matters With These Seven Special-Size Frame Lines




Don’t let anyone ever tell you you’re not a beautiful or unique snowflake because, let’s be honest, standard-size frames do not fit everyone. Luckily, the special-size eyewear market is growing, making it easier to meet the needs of all your customers. Many companies got their start because the founders literally could not find frames to fit themselves or their children—necessity really is the mother of invention. Shine on baby.

Zac from TC Charton

TC Charton

Most eyewear products are designed to fit Caucasian features, but TC Charton is focused exclusively on Asian fit eyewear. Distinctive model Zac (size: 55/17/140) provides comfort, style and a proper fit.
