State Optical Sandburg

Size Guide

Our most scholarly look is of course named for the street named for one of Chicago’s proudest sons, Carl Sandburg. It’s a short, quiet stretch of street perfect for watching the fog come in. The colors speak to the dimension of the wearer, slick lapis into sand, tortoise fading into blonde, smooth black layered over tortoise, and tortoise layered over crystalline jade.

Face Shape Guide
Square face
Round face
Oval face
Heart face

A square face has defined angles and balanced lines along the forehead, chin and cheeks. An oval or round frame will complement these strong features and soften them. 

The width and height of a round face will be roughly similar. In order to elongate and play down the fullness of the cheeks, select a frame with strong angles and straight lines. 

An oval face is defined by higher cheekbones and a chin that is narrower than the forehead. Frames that sweep upward complement the cheekbones and slim down the jawline. 

A heart-shaped face has a long, pointed jawline, with the chin being the smallest feature. Over-sized frames complement this shape and balance out the forehead and narrow chin.
