Sizing

Which size Classic Monocle is right for me?

Our Classic Monocles come in three sizes: 40 mm diameter (Large), 37 mm diameter (Medium), and 34 mm diameter (Small).  To find your correct size, please refer to the chart below:

Height Monocle Diameter
Taller than 6" (183 cm) 40 mm (Large)
Between 5' 6" and 6' 0" (167 cm and 183 cm) 37 mm (Medium)
Under 5' 6" (167 cm) 34 mm (Small)

If you're not sure which size to buy, then opt for the smaller monocle.  A monocle that is slightly too small will fit much better than a monocle that is slightly too large.

Why do you base your size recommendations on a person's height?

During our development and testing of our monocles we found height to be a convenient, easy, and accurate predictor of monocle fit.  Generally, taller people have larger heads and facial features than shorter people.  And everyone is different - if you have additional questions about monocle fit please contact us for help.
