Default Costa Sizing Question

Gonna be purchasing a new pair of Costas via Internet this evening but I am a bit unsure about something.

Does each frame come in different sizes? Im looking at a pair of Blackfins. My buddies fit me good. Last minute I got worried and checked Costas website and saw for the Blackfin they did not have size options. So I checked other frames only to find the same result. But I am constantly reading make sure you get the right size.

Costa makes different models for different head sizes. Each model does not come in different sizes.
I bought the Zane model because of my watermelon sized noggin.
If you buy what your buddy had, you'll get the exact same pair of glasses.

Thats what I was thinking. Thanks man

Odd thing is I had Hammerheads that were really tight but my buddies Blackfins fit perfect. Costa has them both listed as XL. Lol

Reminder, the hammerheads have metal spring loaded hinges that spring back every time. Blackfin has a plastic hinge that stretches over time and doesn't stay tight. Try the Maui Jim Peahi if you are looking to a similar design that doesn't fall off
