I'm shopping for new specs, though not sure that I'm really going to buy soon. I need an update to my prescription, but it's not super urgent. Still, I'm starting to look.

I went shopping a few days ago, and tried on a few. It turned out that I was limited to men's specs, because my head and the bridge of my nose are quite large. So all of these pictured are men's.

These are ones that I liked. Are any of these terrific, or should I keep looking?

#1 Coach. I like the shape, but the big logo on the arm kinda turns me off. They're brown.
#2 Izod. These were probably my favorite pair in the store upon first trying them on. They're dark red.
#3 Carter. I'm surprised by how well I like the tortoise shell in the picture, usually I prefer solids, but I like it here.
#4 Another Carter - these are brown.
#5 - #6 And a third Carter (I liked how this brand followed my eyebrows). These look black in the picture, but I think they were actually a dark brown. I don't think I want black specs, so they're probably out.
