Fit and Size Guide

Fit

Featuring 12-mm nose pads, Raised Fit frames sit higher on your face than Standard Fit ones.

If you have high cheekbones or a low to medium nose bridge, and glasses often slide down your nose, sit on your cheeks or move when you smile, our Raised Fit frames offer long-lasting comfort. As a happy customer named Dory once said, "They pass the smile test!"

Standard Fit frames, on the other hand, are perfect for you if you have a high nose bridge or like your glasses sitting closer to your face.

Apart from the nose pad, Raised and Standard Fit frames are identical.

We came up with Raised and Standard Fit because Singaporeans are super diverse, and so are our noses. 

Frame Size 

To find your ideal size, please measure your current sunglasses to see if its end-to-end frame width is closer to 143 mm (choose Original), 136 mm (Tailored) or 132 mm (Small).

In general, we recommend women try our Original frame size because it offers a flattering slightly oversized look. Based on our sales data, most female customers prefer Original: in fact, more than half of those who initially order Tailored find it too small and end up exchanging to Original.

With male customers, our data shows half of them liking Original and the other half preferring Tailored. 

Pro tip: measure your glasses and refer to this chart to find the best size for you.

Size Frame Width (end to end) Lens - Bridge - Temple (mm)
Original 143 mm 53-20-145 (slightly oversized)
Tailored 136 mm 49-20-145
Small 132 mm 47-20-140

 

Our Sizes: A Brief History

In 2017, we launched Rocket with only one frame size: Original (143 mm wide). Slightly oversized, Original suited men and women in Singapore, most of whom prefer a medium to large fit.

As soon as we expanded overseas to Australia and the U.S., however, we noticed a trend: 95% of returned orders came from white male customers who wanted smaller Rockets.

L to R: Mahogany Tortoise (Original), Hunter Green Clear (Tailored) and Crystal (Small)


Based on this feedback, we created two smaller sizes: Tailored (136 mm wide) and Small (132 mm wide).

If you prefer the standard glasses frame size found in most Western countries, choose Tailored.

If you need narrow frames for a small face, try Small but believe us: it's small. A customer named Natalie from Australia once emailed us about her Small-sized Rockets with the subject line "too small!!" which we feel is accurate for most individuals.

Currently, only Matte BlackCrystalMahogany Tortoise, Amber Tortoise and Hunter Green Clear are available in Tailored or Small, whereas all colours are available in Original. Soon, we will offer more colours in different sizes.
