I've got a pair of Lescas bought in Paris. Love the shape and size (I've got a small head). Will post a pic up when I get back home

The arms (temples, to use the technical term) can usually be bent at an earlier point by an optician so that they fit better (they'll be a bit longer behind your ear though).
Not all Lesca frames are small but some of them are (a quick look on the site I linked above shows the Henri is 129mm wide which is pretty small). Cubitts now do a small version of some of their more popular models if that's of interest.
For guidance 128mm is usually as small as most adult frames go, and usually women's styles. 134mm is probably considered average for a men's frame and anything from 138mm upwards is considered large. You very rarely get bigger than 144mm.
With overall widths you also need to consider the material thickness. The thicker the temples are the less space there is between the temples for your head. So a 134mm wide frame with thin metal temples will fit bigger than a 134mm wide acetate frame with chunky temples. And just to confuse matters slightly some frames have temples that curve out as they go back towards your ear while others go more or less straight back.

I appreciate not every style will work with someone's face, but what's people's pick for best Jacque Marie Mage. Like the look of the Fellini and there's a nice dark transparent Molino on End.
