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!

I am always on the lookout for frames that suit my style. I thought these would be great. I ordered the Derek Cardigan 7008's in Birch, and they came and were awful! They were worse than a pair of glasses my mom would have worn in the 80's. Thick frames, translucent plastic in a peachy-pinky color. I put them on my face once before they went back in the box and got taped back up. However, I have a small face, so I think that frames that aren't so thick are better on me than these would be.

    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.

      Comments about Derek Cardigan 7008 Birch:

      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.

                  The glasses came in too big and keep falling off of my head allowing them to scratch and get really shabby looking within a month. i like your service but i wish you folks got the size right. I am working full time and in school full time so to return them, wait for the mail , yada yada, i dealt with them BECAUSE i needed them. but i will probally go to a regular store next tiem.
