words Editorial Staff

Original Penguin has expanded its fit options launching Alternative fit. The brand has added a few successful existing models with different sizing and fit options to provide consumers with an alternative and compliment a wider variety of face shapes and skin tones.
The Clyde A: the Alternative fit version was increased 2mm in the eye size (54) to allow a wider headspace, and the acetate nosepads are built up an additional 3 mm to stabilize the fit on a patient with a flatter bridge.
The Stewart A:
One of Original Penguin most on trend and of the moment styles features a rec-round shape and keyhole bridge, again with an increase in eye size of 1 mm (50). This alternative fit model was sculpted from UTX acetate material, a high density acetate, which provides a much thinner overall top and temple profile, creating a much lighter overall frame.
The Mungarutal A:
Rounds can be very difficult to wear for patients, but as the shape trend has moved away from the rectangular world, providing an alternative fit shape that compliments the face and feels comfortable was the goal with this style. With this model the eye size was enlarged an additional 2 mm (47). As well, this alternative fit model was sculpted from UTX acetate.
The Saul A was chosen to add an alternative fit due to the rectangular shape by nature providing a greater headspace. Additionally, two new color to provide brighter alternatives to the classic black.
