Anyone know where I could get some bins similar shape to below?

Side note: I bought these off Mr P but they slip right off my face as the arms are too far apart, which is weird because the full width measures 192 (140+52), which is the same as my Cubitts (145+47) - unless I've misunderstood those measurements?

You've misunderstood those measurements.

140 / 145 is the temple length from the hinge to the tip (before bending).

47 / 52 is the width of the lens (the visible lens is 1 to 1.5mm less than this as part of it is within a groove to hold it in place).

If you add the lens width (times 2) and the bridge width (the smaller number usually in the range of 15 to 20) together, then add around 8 to 10 (times 2) for the endpieces (the bits that stick out either side of the lens to join the temples), then you'll get the total width (typically in the range 132mm to 144mm).

So, for example, with Cubitts Heathcote:

8 + 52 + 19 + 52 + 8 = 139mm overall.

Oliver Peoples had a similar shape to what you bought maybe a couple of years ago, I don't remember the model name though.

Cheers mate, ordered a pair of the tortoiseshell-esque round frames for myself. Hopefully they’re the right size.
