Can the eyewear industry make frames any bigger than these? 

Now these have GOT to be the largest frames ever made.
8" wide, thick acetate sunnies made in France.
2 7/8" wide roundish lenses. 
Pre-owned in fantastic condition.  Late 60's-early 1970's.
Straightened,  polished, glass tinted NON Rx lenses are brilliant and free of scratches.
Warm dramatic hues of dark brown into golden yellow in an acetate frame. 
Reinforced riveted 5 barrel hinges.  Made the good ole fashioned way and built to last.

Hinge to hinge (omg my 6" ruler isn't long enough!) is currently at 6 1/2" cause the frame curves and allows the temples to fit behind a slightly wide head,  though if your head widens considerably after your cheekbones,  
I can adjust the frame front to be flatter which will open up the hinge to hinge space and give you about another 1/2" or so.  
I can make many adjustments to a pair of frames.  I am very VERY creative with a frame in my hands. 

May I make a comment as to how large these are: The last 2 photos are two of my largest sunglass frames side by side to give you a reference as to size.  The 6" rounds (found here ) are large on my narrow head. I'm the model in that listing.
These 8" frames are even bigger.  

Wide bridge 27mm
If you have a narrow bridge or face like mine,  these won't suit you.  
They'll slide down your face.

Lens height 2 3/8" (65mm)
Lens width 2 7/8" (75mm)
Frame width 8"
Frame height 3 1/2" (88mm)
PDP 80mm
Temple 140mm (5 1/2")

Etsy shop owner Lisa,  of  'Crazy Lady Vintage' is my friend and on a whim tried these on,  what a hoot we had while she modeled these.  
Lisa has a petite to average width full oval face and these would suit her perfectly if her overall face shape were just a little larger.  These sunglasses are swallowing her whole!
