Today, you'll learn about our distinctive collection and receive style advice about men's reading glasses to help you choose the right pair for your needs.

Integrating Style with Function: Choosing the Right Men's Reading Glasses

It's not just enough to buy premium reading glasses for men. You'll need to select the perfect pair that complements your personal style and face shape. Let's discuss the options available to help you gain inspiration for your next purchase:

Personal Style

The first step on your journey to find men's reading glasses is to consider your personal style.

  • What do you normally wear?

  • What's your preferred lifestyle?

  • When do you typically wear men's reading glasses?

At Banton Frameworks, we have a variety of readers to help you find the right options.

Be Bold.

For example, a fashion-forward man might prefer readers that showcase his femininity and caring side. The Linea G Stratus Mauve might be the perfect pair.

Be Relaxed with Brown

If bold isn't your style, you can't go wrong with tortoise shell square frames. Our Large Square Tortoise Glasses are ideal for men and match almost any outfit.

Take a step back and describe to yourself the men's reading glasses style you want, browse our selection, and imagine each pair on your own face.

Face Shape

Have you ever noticed that some men's reading glasses look great on others but don't do the same for you? That's because there are many frame shapes out there, and they pair better with specific faces.

Sometimes, reading glasses will accentuate a certain facial feature or balance them out.

Let's take a look at different face shapes and potential styles that will improve your vision while reading and accentuate your facial features:

Round Face shape

With a rounded face, you have a round chin, a wide forehead, and fuller cheeks. There are no angles, so everything is curved and balanced nicely.

When looking for reading glasses, it's wise to avoid short frames and rounded shapes. Instead, you should consider angular or square options.


Inverted triangle faces are rare and feature a wider forehead that narrows to the jawline.

If you have this facial type, you'll want frames that are slightly wider than the forehead to offer balance. Glasses that have detailing on the lower part are also great.


When you have a rectangular face, expect an equally wide jawline, forehead, and cheekbones. Typically, you'll also have angular lines, which you may wish to soften.

It's possible to soften angular lines with thinner and rounder frames, which should be slightly wider than the cheekbones.


Those with a square face will typically have a more horizontal jawline and a broader forehead. It's wise to choose oval glasses and darker frames to add contrast because you have such strong facial features.

Likewise, you should avoid square- or geometric-shaped frames, as well as lighter colors.


Oval-shaped faces are the most versatile option because your facial features are more balanced. Generally, your jawline is just a little narrower than the forehead, and you may have angled or high cheekbones.

If you have an oval-shaped face, there are many styles that will suit you. Typically, the frames should be as wide as the broadest area of your face.


How do you plan to wear your men's reading glasses? We have many styles available, and you may need a different prescription for the office or driving for example.

Knowing where you'll wear the reading glasses for men will help you find the perfect style. Maybe something more subdued for the office and something a little bolder to reflect your own personal style at he weekends?

If you're out and about for a day of fun, black goes with everything. Round glasses will help you see the words while balancing out your face.

Hair Color

It's also important to think of your hair color when choosing men's reading glasses. While you might be focused on your vision, readers should look stylish.

Typically, people with brown hair choose the same color for the frames, though this isn't always a necessity. You can still be stylish in blue!

However, if you want to stand out, why not try a vertical gradient in a warm mauve tone.

Making a Statement: The Power of Reading Glasses as an Accessory

Men's reading glasses aren't just to correct your vision. Many people want to match their prescription readers to their outfits, and there are various styles available.

In fact, a good pair of glasses can often be an accessory, and here are a few tips to help you make a bold statement, regardless of your style preferences:

Skin Tone

What is your skin tone? Is it deep, pale, or in between? Are you cool, warm, or neutral? Answering these questions can be difficult, but it's important if you want to match your wardrobe to your men's reading glasses and stay stylish.

Since your vision could be unreliable, the best way to find out your skin tone is to perform a vein test. Look at your wrist in daylight (preferably sunshine) and check the color of the veins.

  • Green Veins - You have a warm skin tone.

  • Purple or Blue Veins - You have a cool skin tone.

  • A Mix of Green and Blue/Purple Veins - You have a neutral skin tone.

Understanding your skin tone will help you manage styles and colors in the long term. Instead of trying on countless reading glasses to find the best one, you'll go straight to the shades that complement your face.

Here are a few things to consider:

Warm Skin Tone

If you have a warm skin tone, you should consider rich colors or use nature-inspired neutrals. Here are a few ideas to consider:

  • Red

  • Amber

  • Gold

  • Brown

  • Cream/Ecru

Neutral Skin Tone

Those with a neutral skin tone can choose from almost anything on the color wheel to pick styles. However, green and pink will look best because they don't overwhelm your face.

Cool Skin Tone

Having a cool skin tone means you would do well with bright or deep colors, such as white, red, purple, green, and deep blue.

Assess Your Wardrobe

After you figure out your skin tone base, you can start matching outfits to your glasses. Look at your wardrobe and focus on what you normally wear.

Do you typically choose neon or bright colors? Is the all-black look more your style? Understanding the general theme or vibe of your outfits will help you narrow down the types of glasses you prefer.

Where You Typically Wear Reading Glasses

Buying glasses isn't just about your vision; it's important to think of the many styles and designs available. You need something that fits your lifestyle.

Casual frames will work when you're running errands or at the office.

When you're getting ready for a special occasion, you may want something with a slightly bold color to make your eyes pop.

Consider Matching the Glasses to the Accessories

If you want more inspiration when choosing your glasses, it might be wise to match the readers to the accessories you plan to wear. The specs you consider might be your only pop of color, so you want them to stand out.

Alternatively, you may want to keep things streamlined for a more monochromatic style.
