Overall, I am very pleased with these frames and my experience with coastal.com. I had originally ordered a larger-sized frame (7004) and after looking at the reviews and sizes of the 7004 vs 7008, I quickly called customer service to change my order. The gentleman I spoke with was very friendly and quickly/easily made the change.

I was very excited to recieve these glasses in the mail. The frames were exactly what I was hoping for. The size was perfect, slightly oversized but not obnoxiously huge. The color was true to the photos, which I love: a neutral pinkish-tan with a hint of vintage (similar to some crazy, oversized glasses my mom had in the 80s).

Also, the glasses were delivered in less than two weeks from the time I placed the order. The best part of this whole deal: I only had to pay for shipping and handling using the 'new customers receive their first pair free' promotion.

Thank you!

Not designer but decent quality.

I wanted a new pair of glasses to wear every day. These aren't really what I would do that with. I use these for lounging and reading in bed.

      Comments about Derek Cardigan 7008 Birch:

      There are not enough adjectives to describe how much I love these glasses. They were my First Pair Free glasses, so the cost was lenses and shipping. The light, sheer color is very au courant--check out Miu Miu frames and you will see this all over the place. The classic shape goes very well with the color, and the math symbols are a nice little accent. These are now my favorite frames over my Valentinos and Guccis, plus they were on my eyes within 3 days of ordering.

        I really love this pair of glasses. The color is better in person than it was on the website. They did feel a little snug even with the spring hinges, but I had them adjusted and now they are comfy. I have that problem with a lot of glasses. The shipping was extremely fast! I ordered Tuesday and received the package by Friday! I have ordered my second pair of derek cardigans and plan to order more in the future. Coastal.com is amazing!

          Comments about Derek Cardigan 7008 Birch:

          So far I'm really enjoying these glasses! I did have to send them back though, because they forgot the anti glare coating. Without the anti glare coating I was not liking these at all, considering I could see almost everything reflecting back at me. Coastal did send me a new pair quite quickly though, and now I really like them.

          Overall these are quite adorable glasses. Also my most complemented glasses too. The color is perfect for people with warmer undertones. I was worried that a transparent frame would not look on me, but these totally work for me. I'm glad I went with birch instead of the transparent or fog shades.

          I've had them for less then 2 weeks so I can not say too much about their durability, but so far its all been good. These frames do slide down my nose a bit, which is my fault for picking these frames (they have a slightly bigger bridge than my other glasses). However these frames are pretty awesome at the moment. I wear them maybe 3-4 times a week. I think they will hold up pretty well in the long run too.

            It's great. The color doesnt stand out too much, it kinda blend in with my skin, so it doesnt add too much emphasize to the eyes. It's my everyday use when I'm lazy to wear contacts. The size isnt really big either, so it doesnt take up the whole face.

              I first started with the try your first pair free. I was sceptical that the glasses would not be high quality and low grade prescricption because they were such a good deal! It was unbelievable how nice they were. They were very instyle and durable. I loved them so much that I have had multiple family members and friends buy from coastal.com and they are all satisfied as well!

                    Quality frames, in that I mean I don't feel that they will break from just everyday use. I just got my glasses so I can't comment about the scratch resistance.

                    I adore the styling of these frames! They are super comfortable, and the color goes with everything. I get so many compliments on them...everyday. However, here are two downfalls - and not with the frames themselves, but rather with the lenses. They scratch easily and are very easily fingerprinted. It's kind of a pain, but I like the frames so much, so I have just dealt with these issues.

                    Comments about Derek Cardigan 7008 Birch:

                    I didn't realize the frames would be as heavy as they turned out to be; I suppose I could have upgraded to the lighter frames but then I'd have to stop being... cheap. It doesn't affect the comfort per se, because the measurements were perfect for my face, but when the glasses have been on my face for a while, I start to notice the heaviness of it on the bridge of my nose. The arms of the frames don't press against my temple, which is a common issue I have had with other glasses, but that's more because the measurements were exactly as I picked when I ordered them. No adjustments were necessary to the glasses once they were out of the box.

                    The birch color is nice, but they're also more transparent than one would expect. Not a bad thing by any means, but just a warning for people who don't want transparent frames. My brothers tell me the glasses remind them of our grandmother, because the frames have a vintage look to them. Hence, the "hipster grandma glasses."

                    Overall, I'm very satisfied especially when considering the price. They're basically an extra pair to have when I need them so I wasn't expecting anything life alteringly amazing.
