Temples are always measured their full length, hinge to tip, as though they were straightened out. Why? Because they're adjustable, so measurements to the bend vary.  Lens and bridge measurements are from lens edge to lens edge. Hinge to hinge is measured from screw to screw.

The Sidewinders come in all the sizes listed above and there are two different temple lengths: 145 mm (5 3/4'') and 150 mm (6''). The largest sizes can be had with 160 mm (6 1/4''). They also have a cable temple option available in silver or gold. They're what Shuron calls their ''Aztec cable'' and you can see it used on one of their other frames here. Sidewinders also come in ebony, tortoise shell and a black fade

I'm thorough about condition on all frames I offer, even the new classics, so there aren't any surprises and your Sidewinders will be inspected thoroughly before they ship to you. They make great everyday glasses or very cool sunglasses.
