    Anybody have experience with a misaligned frame.... specifically, how to adjust/repair.
    These are new frames, the nosebridge is straight and factory tight....
    Thanks in advance...
    Dave.

    Have you tried gently manipulation to the nosebridge ? Not many photos to look at exactly here but the lean angle looks out at the bridge to me.
    I'd like to see a clear side shot to get a view on the arm location point.

    Also, have a look and make sure both the arms are straight.

    When you wear them so they feel fine to you? That's what matters most. Not how they sit on the table. If it bothers you that much twist them straight. They will be fine

    Actually wearing them is when i noticed they werent right. Felt off....
    I have tried gently manipulating them to limited success. I'm worried that if i try to bend them too much the nose bridge will look off.

    Take some better pics if you can, they are not good enough to see exactly what is wrong here.
    Or, you could just send them to @THE X-MAN

    Twist them into shape you're not going to hurt them remember there is a rubber inside that nose piece
