Could I ask where might be best to get some nice specs for someone who is a first time wearer. I don't want to go in straight at the high end, because I have never worn glasses and don't really know what I am looking for so much. I looked at some wonderful Oliver Peoples, Orgreen and Theo at the weekend but it is too much to go in straight away.
I have tried Cubitts, Archibald, Ace and Tate online, but they tend not to have the angular rectangle frames that I think (and have been told) suit me.
I also really want to avoid having a logo plastered alongside my head which pretty much rules out the normal high street designer brands.
I can get to Manchester/Liverpool/Leeds area without too much bother.

Cubitts put their prices up to £125.
Wacking on an extra 25% seems like a big jump in less than a year…
Anyone else in their price/quality bracket?

I thought the frames were alright and £125 is still cheap enough. Shame their shapes don't fit my face or I'd have a few pairs.

Andy, why are Cubitts designed only for pinheads?

Initially they started off with small to medium-sized frames but several of the models are now available in Large sizes too.
If you look at the individual model pages there's a dropdown menu to select Regular or Large and the dimensions of both.
Yes MoB, it's 5 years since you told my bank you were paying me for "bumlove".

What're some decent spec brands to look at around the £100-200 mark? Wanted to get some Oliver Peoples frames, but looks like I'd have to go to London, which I really can't be bothered with.
Checked out Cubitt, but the frames look tiny. Even the large one's measurements look stupid small.
