OK, I've got a big head and barely have a nose bridge. Most sunglasses are typically too narrow or designed for people with a bridge so when I put them on, sometimes they don't even make it halfway without fear of snapping the frame and/or the frames/lenses rest on my cheeks.

I know Oakley makes "Asian Fit" sunglasses but I have yet to try them on. Are they any good? Any other brands/styles I should be looking at?

Thanks!

I have the same type of face (yes I'm Asian) and I wore the regular half-jackets for 2 years and it fit okay but still the lenses hit my cheeks somewhat but nothing too bad.  

A couple of weeks ago got a pair of Asian Fit Half-Jackets and they are much better.  Bridge actually works and the lenses are off my cheeks.  Nothing better out there.  Got authentic ones from eBay.  Good luck.

Just got my first pair of Asian Fit Oakleys (Flak Jackets).  They're good, but not great.  They still feel a little tight.  Any other suggestions?

I've read a lot of good things about Tifosi and Kaenon.  Either of them make glasses for people with huge and flat melons?

You could try the Native Nano 2. I have a large melon and this is the most comfortable pair I could find. They don't squeeze my temples or anything. I don't know if they would be an issue for the nose bridge issue though. Native has a bunch of glasses though, I say check them out.
We're not here for a long time,
just a good time.
