I don't have any glasses this big, so I wanted to try them out with the first pair free promotion. They are REALLY big on my small face, so it is taking a little while getting used to them...but, I have a poll up on fb, and people seem to like them. I think I will definitely keep them.

The fit and durability are great, though, and they even included a case, micro-fiber cloth, and little screwdriver for adjusting the glasses! Awesome service.

These frames are cute however, the color is definitely a little misrepresented in the pictures provided online. I expected more of a clear, peachy, blush color but these are straight up brown. The name Birch is perfectly accurate nonetheless.
They are a little heavy but the fit is attractive for my face shape. They are also a little flimsy and make 'cracking' noises every time I clean them but hopefully they will endure.
Coastal.com's customer service is amazing, as this was an exchange, so I am certain I will continue to order from this site.

      Comments about Derek Cardigan 7004 Birch:

      If you're looking for the stylish big "hipster" glasses that are all the rage these days, these glasses are a good fit. I like the color because it can go with anything, and it makes my overall style look more trendy and cute than a black or clear color frame would.

      For a good while, I loved these glasses. I was in college, and I'd get a lot of compliments on how "cool" they looked. However, I could never wear them for too long. They're already pretty heavy in the first place, and they become heavier and heavier throughout the day. They fog up very easily as well. I normally have pretty clear, dry skin, but after wearing these glasses for too long in one day, my face would start getting oily. They'd leave a mark on my cheeks, and then I'd start getting acne quickly. I would not recommend wearing these glasses for the whole day every day. But if you like to make occasional stylish appearances, then these glasses are OK for that... especially if you're on the younger side and don't mind wearing uncomfortable glasses every once in a while. I, however, feel like I've outgrown my college years, and I'd be too embarrassed to wear these glasses out again. So much for an investment.

      Overall, unless you really, really want the look, these glasses will not be worth the purchase.

      I got these glasses with the free promo and it took me a little bit to get used to the look because I wasn't used to large frames. But I absolutely LOVE these frames. They are my go to everyday pair. I got them in the Birch color which is a little darker than the picture but everything else is true to the description. I would highly recommend them.

          I love these frames. I got progressive readers with clear/no Rx on top. I just started needing reading glasses and the full frame cheapie ones were both ugly but made me feel sick every time I had to look up either working, studying or in class. PLUS, I am no old lady so perching them on the end of my nose was not an option. I wanted a larger frame and lens to accommodate a larger range in vision - these deliver. The best part is they are so stylish!

          They are so well made and comfy I forget I put them on until I walk by a mirror or someone compliments me on them.

          I am a fair skinned, blue eyed redhead and the Birch color looks really spectacular! They are a fashionable and fab retro 90's look. I love them and I will order more in sunnies and for my regular nearsighted Rx as well.

            I bought these because I was new to Coastal.com and got these as my first free pair. I couldn't be more happy with them. They are large, funky and stylish. I get tons of compliments on these and I love how subtle the color is. I am fair skinned with dark reddish hair so these compliment my colors well. I highly recommend them!

                    Comments about Derek Cardigan 7004 Birch:

                    I've bought several pairs of glasses from a couple of online sources but was unimpressed because of the poor quality frames. I read reviews here on this (and other) Derek Cardigan frame and decided I liked my chances. They came yesterday, and I looked them over, put them on and I'm very pleased. The frame is substantial, feels strong and durable. The temples include a metal interior reinforcing piece (you can see it through the translucent platic).

                    To me, durability has priority over style in a frame as long as the style doesn't bother me. This one's OK for me.

                    The glasses were shipped in a box and were in a hard shell case. It's heavy and strong. You might like it, you might not, but there's no arguing its toughness compared with the soft slide in cases I usually have gotten with new frames! Coastal also included a maintenance kit in a small plastic snap-shut clear case. It includes a cleaning cloth, a tiny spray bottle of cleaning solution and a little gizmo to tighten or remove the tiny screws in frames' hinges. I didn't notice that at first, but noticed and inspected it a few hours later.

                    I have many other frames. Two of them are really old American Optical framed glasses (real glass!) that miraculously still work well for me. They became too weak for me except for around the house but recently they are almost my exact distance Rx! Well, I needed to replace the broken or breaking temples (found replacements on the internet), but I needed a special tool to remove the hex head hinge screws. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to find that tool. Most of the local optometrists don't have that tool, couldn't find it reasonably online. However today I found a tool online that looked like it might work but they didn't include the dimension. I then realized that it looks a lot like the little tool that Coastal just sent me. I looked again at that tool and realized that it does have a hex head screw facility. I tried it and it is the exact size I needed. Fantastic! Thanks to Coastal for the great frames (haven't had any experience with the lenses yet, but a quick look has me pleased), and that cool kit! I couldn't be more happy with my purchase, and I did do the first time buyer coupon thing, FIRSTPAIRFREE! Fantastic! I got the mid-level coatings package, the one they call "Silver." A thinner, lighter lens doesn't matter much to me inasmuch as I'm used to glass! I wanted some good basic coatings, though.

                      This is a good product for the first time free deal, although I would not pay full price for them. This is also something that I keep in the car, to wear while driving and I do not generally wear them in public. The quality is pretty poor but for only paying $10 (shipping fee), it's quite worth it.
