Fit and Size Guide v2 [Draft]
Featuring 12-mm nose pads, Raised Fit frames sit higher on your face than Standard Fit ones.
If you have high cheekbones relative to your nose bridge, or glasses often slide down your nose, sit on your cheeks or move when you smile, our Raised Fit frames offer long-lasting comfort. A happy customer named Dory once said, "They pass the smile test!"
Tiffany wears Raised Fit.
Standard Fit frames, on the other hand, are perfect for you if you have a high nose bridge relative to your cheekbones.
Zenos wears Standard Fit.
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.
To find your ideal frame size, you can measure the frame width of your current sunglasses and compare it with our three sizes:
- Original (143 mm wide)
- Tailored (136 mm wide)
- Small (132 mm wide)
Please measure. Doing so helps you know with certainty which frame size to choose.
Generally, we recommend women try Original 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 diagram.
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 like the standard glasses frame size found in most Western countries, choose Tailored.
If you need narrow frames, try Small but believe us: it's small. A customer named Natalie from Australia once emailed us about her Small Rockets with the subject line "too small!!" We believe this statement is accurate for most individuals.
Currently, all our frames are available in Original, while a select number are available in Tailored and Small. You can see the colours with smaller sizes here.
