Most Eyeglasses were not made with your face in mind
Admit it Once upon a time, you spent a few hours at your optical shop, trying on dozens of frames and "just settling" either with a pair that looks great but keeps sliding off your face or one that fits fine but you won't be caught dead wearing it out. You end up wondering what is wrong with your face why your face is so flat, why you lack a nose-bridge, why every frame seems to sit on your cheeks, and why it's so hard to find glasses that hits the right balance of fitting right and looking great. It's not you. It's the eyewear brands. Most designer eyewear brands only cater their eyewear collection for people who higher nose bridges so the plastic frames are not designed for flatter face individuals. They will sit awkwardly on Asian or faces with a low nose bridge, aka the space between your eyes.. Mott and Bayard Eyewear wanted to change that
Flatter frame tilt
We adjusted the frame tilt to make it sit parallel to the face, not at an uncomfortable tilt that can make the frame lie too close to the cheeks. The tilt is only a few degrees from being perpendicular to the temples, not like most designer plastic frames that have a more pronounced tilt that will cause a frame to lift-up when one smiles
At just 18 grams, the Rio's titanium frames are remarkably lightweight and incredibly durable. We thought we wouldn’t get any lighter than the Phantom, but we made it right under 20 grams.
