Men Face Shape - Oblong
An oblong shape of face is a little hard to determine as it almost looks like an oval shape. Men with oblong face shapes have a variety of eyeglass designs available to choose from. 
Measurement of the Oblong Face Shape
By Ruler: A ruler can be used to measure the size of the facial features including the jawline, chin, cheekbones, forehead and hairline along with the vertical face length. These measurements can then be used to create an outline of a face structure – it’s shape will be your face shape. 
By Mirror: Using a mirror is easier and time saving. All one needs to do is to stand in front of a mirror and draw the outline of the face on the glass. The shape that comes out as the result with be the shape of your face.
Oblong Face Shape
This shape is determined as a slightly longer version of an oval shape. It is also narrower that the usual oval shape. It includes a broad forehead and cheekbones. The chin is smaller and rounded while the hairline is broader than the chin, but smaller than the forehead, with circular edges. Together, these dimensions make the shape of an inverted egg.
