"Depends what you wear but I think wooden frames are so cool. Of course pilots are timeless, don't know about the sizing though. But almost every brand has a pilot model so there is plenty choices to browse through. "

"Thank you for sharing.  Due to my unsatisfactory experience in school, I had to teach myself to improve my English and grammar. I bought a very cheap box-set of books to refer to. I admit, I still get things wrong. "

I'm worried that the 52mm AO frames bight be the same. But I don't want to jump up to the 55mm and have them be loose.My google-fu has only found them through online retailers.
