    I simply adore these frames. I bought them for use as prescription sunglasses and couldn't be happier. I think they're the perfect, oversized cat-eye frame. I've gotten loads of compliments on them and I love how they look and feel. I'm very impressed with the quality of the frame too.

    I find too many glasses today are too narrow and don't give enough coverage for sunglasses but these are perfect. I like them so much I'm toying with getting a pair for my everyday eyewear too but seeing as I already have 7 other pairs....I dunno. LOL I love the sexy cat-eye look. It has the feel of 1960's eyewear with today's quality. Fabulous!

    The only thing I wish for with these is for them to come in blackout!! OMG I'd buy in a heartbeat!

    Like afm, who commented below, I was so excited when I saw that these frames were back in stock. I've been wanting a dramatic pair of cateyes and thought that these were the ones - sadly, when they arrived in the post yesterday, I realised that I was wrong. They're not nearly as dramatically curved as they appear both in the product shot and on the model; the top portion of the frames is much straighter than pictured. I have a narrow face, but these are proving to be much too tight for me. I know that often with eyeglasses you have to take them to be reshaped and melted a bit to achieve the perfect fit, but I think their narrowness combined with the weight of the frame is making them too uncomfortable to bother, (I've only been able to wear them for a few hours daily, before the bridge of my nose becomes too sore and red with indents).

    I'm considering exchanging them for the Love L747 frames, which I do not like as much based on their photo, but since these ones look different from how pictured on the website, perhaps I'll like the Love frames more in real life.

    They're cute frames, but I'm disappointed that in reality they're not as contoured as they appear and they really aren't proving to be comfortable/wearable.

    Comments about Derek Cardigan 7005 Black:

    I love these frames, they fit really well and I really like that the cateye is so subtle, but the symbols fall out after a long time of continued wear. I wish I could buy the equals signs to put them back in! These are perfect big bold frames, I love that they're a bit cateye too. I've seen a lot of complaints about the change in style from the original model but I think both styles are lovely and I'd love to have both. I would definitely recommend these and buy them again for myself!

      Bring back the original 7005 style!

      By Disappointed

      from Vancouver

      Comments about Derek Cardigan 7005 Black:

      I love the glasses from Clearly - particularly the original 7005 style, which was always sold out. When I saw that the style was back, I ordered mine right away, but was very disappointed to see that this style was not the same as the older model of 7005
      I had seen on others. The older models had a lighter tortoishell color and a MUCH
      deeper " cat eye" style (I have held both in my hand and compared them). The 7005 b however are very straight across, and therefore less flattering on the face. I don't know why Clearly decided to modify one of their most popular frames, but if they bring back the old style (7005) I will buy them right away!

                  I wanted to post a comment to warn people that the picture is NOT true to life, but then I saw that several people have beat me to it! It is true, this frame is very straight across the top and not a dramatic cateye frame at all. The picture of the frame on the model is the most accurate view you will get.

                          well, after waiting so long to try and get my hands on a pair of these I was so excited when they had restocked them! I literally scrounged up all the money I could.

                          So I ordered them and eagerly awaited. I have a friend who has them too and was so excited as I saw what they looked like in real life!

                          BUT....they arrived and were quite small... smaller than I had expected and the top bar of the frame is almost completely straight! NOT CURVED like in the picture at all.

                          In fact they don't look as big and curved as on the model or on the webisite pics. and even though my friend lives far away from me i can tell from pics of her wearing them mine aren't the same.

                          although i contacted clearly contacts about this they assured me it was the right frame, but i am sad and dissapointed.

                          i might try and take them to get fitted to my face and have them put a bend in the frame, but is it really worth it?

                          pls contact me if you have had a similar problem with this frame.

                                  If you have a prescription higher than neg 6, these glasses will some what hide the thickness of the lens, even with a higher index lens (1.67)
                                  The frames are large, but I love the look and shape of the frames. They are highly fashionable.
                                  I just wish C.C had higher index with their lenses (1.75)
