In college, I “borrowed” my boyfriend’s dad’s aviator sunglasses and sported them for a year. The glasses were far too large for me – my fella’s dad was a monster of a man, probably still is – but I cared not. Despite the over-sized appearance, I felt incredibly cool. To this day, I adore the aviator shape, perhaps too much. Although aviator sunglasses are sexy, aviator spectacles are not the most fabulous look, but that does not stop me. I love them too. They make me feel like a hot old man.

When asked me to review their website and select a pair of glasses of my choosing, I doubt they expected me to order men’s aviator eyeglasses, but I couldn’t help myself. I almost requested their fabulous round sunglasses, but the aviator grabbed a hold of me and I couldn’t shake it off.  

When deciding on my eyeglass choice, I was immediately impressed by Firmoo’s search tools and viewing possibilities. To buy something as intimate as eye glasses online requires a lot of detail and assistance that many online optical stores skimp on, but Firmoo gives you that and then some. On, each pair of glasses has complete descriptive details and measurements as well as numerous photos of the glasses on and off people with customer reviews to aid you in your purchase – a purchase that won’t break the bank, yet retains quality. My pair of old man glasses are light-weight, sturdy and came with that nifty tool, cleaner and a cloth. This rdiculous shape also allows me to see more of the world. This is why everyone in the 80’s had huge eyeglasses. You have less blind spots.

The complaint one might have with Firmoo is a small slection. There are not hundreds of choices for each category.


My product reviews are my honest and personal opinion. I never accept payment for product reviews although I am given the sample to keep. If I am sent something that is unimpressive or boring I don’t write about it.
