    either the M frames or I like the flak jacket. i have a big face as well. they are pretty comfy. all of my glasses except for one pair are Oakley. i dont know if you have an Oakley store near you anywhere. If you do, pop in there and ask them what they think the best pair would be for you. Ive found they are pretty helpful picking size and how they look on your face.

    I'd go to the store and try some on personally. I'm lucky, all shapes look fine on me, but I'm not sure round faces :confused:

    Depends on what you want them for.

    Gascans, Oil Rig, etc., are more of a casual look. M-Frames, Flak Jackets, Straight Jackets and Radars are more performance-based. Felons, Wardens, Crosshairs are all aviator-style. The Wire series is more in line with a professional appearance.

    I have about 20 pair, and I personally love the Flak Jackets. Lightweight, sporty, and distortion-free.

    The Radars and M-Frames are good for wider faces since they have a large lens.

    I love mine. I play baseball, backpack, golf, snowboard, mountain bike, fish, etc. in them. Plus, I have extra lenses for different light conditions.

    I made sure to get the XLJ lenses, because the offer enough peripheral coverage to be used as safety glasses. So I can use them working in the shop/garage, shooting, and blowing stuff up too.

    Plus, when I'm not using them for any of that, they look cool!

    I wish. I mostly keep them in my truck (3pr, minimum) or under my bed.

    My brother has a lot more. He used to keep them in a Lexan case. He has sets all the way back to the old school Razor Blades that Greg LeMond, Singan Smith and Karch Kiraly used to wear.

    Definitely go try a bunch of them on and see what you think looks best.

    I personally wear the Flak Jackets and the also another Oakley pair that I don't remember the name of.

    I got the Gascan's myself, but they are no sport glasses... They have a tendency to fall off really easy as they have no rubber for the bridge of your nose or ears like some of the other Oakley's...

    I've got the same problem with mine. I also see the reflection of MY OWN EYE in them. Which is dumb.

    But I got them custom, and they're bad-ass, even if I do look kinda douchey in them. But whatever.

    By far, the worst pair I own are the Felons. Absolutely terrible. They pinch everywhere, even after fitting them to my face, distort, reflect and just look awful. Oakley should be ashamed for making this product.
