For those of you who found the Cubitts frames a bit on the small side they've just taken delivery of some bigger versions of:

Ampton L - 52-20-150
Calthorpe L - 54-19-150
Herbrand L - 48-23-150
Wicklow L - 50-23-150

The sizes relate to the lens width, distance between the lenses and temple length respectively.

They're not online yet but if you e-mail info@cubitts.co.uk with the subject line Large Size Preview then they can sort out a Home Trial directly with you.

Has anyone had made any bespoke glasses frames? Or can recommend any companies that make them? I am looking for somewhere for the missus as she has quite a small head (in before the Beetlejuice pic, she is only 5ft) and struggles with off the shelf frames (a reverse Berk).

Depends what you mean by quality. Glasses Direct seem alright. There's a link in the original post at the top.

Got a pair of Garrett Leight frames and have a strong perscription in one eye so need to get thin lenses - will Glasses Direct do the job?
