Have you ever found the perfect frames for your look and style, only to end up disappointed because the fit just wasn’t quite right for the shape of your face? Or perhaps you have become tired of continually shifting your glasses back onto your nose? We are here to change things, giving customers a choice between “Standard Fit” and “Alternative Fit”, since you should never have to choose between fit and style. “Which one is perfect for you? Read on.

WHAT IS “STANDARD FIT”?

“Standard Fit” is just as it sounds, the good, old-fashioned standard that hasn’t changed in years, meaning super straight temple arms and fixed nose pieces. Available at retailers you may have patronized in the past, this fit is better suited for people with higher or more prominent nose bridges. But for some, it means more of the same, pushing your glasses up onto the bridge of your nose throughout the day, or unwelcomed squeezing and pinching around your temples.

WHAT IS “ALTERNATIVE FIT?”

JINS is improving the eyewear experience with its “Alternative Fit” frames. Available in a wide array of styles and colors to complement any face, they are changing the way people wear frames. Also known as Asian or Global Fit, they are ideal for people with lower nose bridges, and eliminate the worry of slippage and other discomfort issues thanks to specific design elements incorporated into the frame for maximum fit and comfort.

HIGHER NOSE PADS

Higher nose pads are just that, placed higher, meaning your Alternative Fit frames will sit at just the right point on your nose if you have a lower bridge.

CURVED TEMPLES

Contrary to conventional Standard Fit glasses, Alternative Fit frames have curved temple ends for more comfort without sacrificing style.
