    Hi guys, I'm planning to get a special someone a nice gift. She likes big sunnies. I can't decide if I should get her a Fringe or Beckon.

    I personally like the fringe on girls much better. But you'll have to judge what suits her style more

    All I know is that she likes the big ones. She has this black sunglasses which kinda looks like the Fringe. Thanks for the replies.

    A word to the wise - Mrs H had the Beckon, and it felt incredibly cheap and flimsy so she sold it on. She has also tried on the Fringe, and again we thought it felt similarly poor, so did not buy it.

    I'm not sure if you have actually seen these pairs in the flesh, but I would strongly advise you seek them out in a store and hold them. I think you might be disappointed.

    Out of the current Women's range, it sounds like probably the Necessity would fit the bill if she likes a large frame. It's a more substantial O-Matter frame which has a more quality feel.

    The usual blacks, browns, and tortoise - but they also even do an Infinite Hero colorway in that frame.
    Which, quite frankly, for a women's frame, looks the b@lls.
