When I saw these I could not wait to get them! I love how they're cute, edgy, smart and classy all at the same time! Plus for a wayfarer style the size is not too big. For those who are looking for a bit of geek chic like myself without going overboard on the frame size I recommend these. As for the color I initially thought the clear looking black was going to be tacky but it ended up having more of a nice modern edge to it after I saw the pictures of others wearing it in the reviews.

I initially decided to get these from hearing about the first free pair from a friend of mine who just got their pair. I'll admit I was really skeptical of the quality I was going to get. Just in case I threw on the ultra thin lens upgrade for the sake of weight on a thick rimmed frame. This had exceeded my expectations! It's really lightweight and I sometimes forget I'm wearing them. I was also worried about if it would slip down the bridge of my nose but it seems to keep its place. It was supposed to be a back up pair but now its become a regular in my wardrobe. I find it very versatile when it comes to matching it with my outfits.

All in all I love them and I'm gonna come back to order some more glasses! These frame prices are a steal!

The frames are a good quality but the nose area is a little tight. If I wear them for a long period of time I at times have a slight irritation on the bridge of my nose that stops once I remove the glasses. I do not have a large nose or face and the position the frames sit could be off for my oval facial frame. Over all the glasses are a good fit, stylish, and fun conversation piece when someone notices the different decals on the front.

    Comments about Derek Cardigan 7009 Shadow:

    These came very quickly. They have a good look (remind me of Ray Bans a little). They are very lightweight and do a good job blocking the sun. The lenses were so clear I often forget I have them on until I have been indoors for a while. The quality is ok and although I don't expect them to last forever, I am happy with what I got for the price. My only major complaint is that the frame does not allow for wearing on your head.

      Comments about Derek Cardigan 7009 Shadow:

      These are wonderful frames. The Shadow color is a great shade on olive skin tone. Not too heavy like black frames but enough to stand out. I have a heart shaped face and I think they work well for me. I'm so happy with these frames.

          Comments about Derek Cardigan 7009 Shadow:

          I love how these frames look & fit my face! I could do w/out the math symbols that are on either side. I'm not sure why those were added, seems a bit odd, but at least they are sort of subtle. They aren't too big, which I was concerned about considering the style. I was hoping that by uploading my own pic I could get a better idea of how they would fit my face size wise. I had an extremely difficult time just trying to upload & resize my pic, I would get error msgs & the controls they have to adjust the rotation & size are terribly crude. After all that struggle I was yet again disappointed by the try on view of the glasses on my face pic, they were either extremely small or way too big. Hopefully someone can work on that, it's disappointing when the glasses fit the generic pics perfectly, none of these pics were very similar to my face. Other than that issue it seems that they are a bit sneaky with their offer of "first pair free" the frames are free, not the actual complete pair of glasses, which includes the basic lenses, kind of a bummer, but they were still way cheaper than other pairs I've purchased. They also have a huge selection of frames for this deal to choose from. Overall I'm very satisfied with my purchase. They make ordering glasses online pretty convenient & I received both my contact lenses & glasses at lightning speed compared to every other time I've ordered through my dr's office:)

            These glasses are my new dream pair. They fit comfortably on the bridge and stay put. The DC brand designs on the temple are fun and stylish. These glasses perform great at work and are suited for both dress and casual wear.

              I use my glasses to read. I like the glasses because the magnification is very good, and they do not scratch easily unlike my other glasses. However I found that they were much smaller than I expected. Pay attention to the listed details when buying such as the size.

                          These glasses are definitely darker than they appear on the website, but they're great. They are lightweight, but feel durable. I'm able to dress them up or down, and after four months, I'm still in love with them.
