I had the same problem as allenhild. They weren't too tight near the ears, but at the temple were ridiculously tight to the point where it would be impossible to wear them for more than a minute. So tight that the glasses wouldn't even drop down to touch my nose. I noticed as well that the earpieces were way beyond my ears when the lenses were up near my eyes. I haven't had this problem with any other sunglasses except maybe the old gas station special. I don't have an exceedingly large head - my hat size is only about 7 1/8, so I don't think it's me. I thought the styling of them was sweet - if only they fit well.
