That's what I thought but I can't find any that look like those….

Pretty sure Superdenim had them a few years ago. Were around £300 upwards. Might be worth calling the London store & asking?

Anyone used pret a voir? I'm not sure on the frame size of some Oliver Peoples and they do free returns.

They're 100% legit if that's what you're wondering about.

Cheers. Do you think it's worth paying the extra £20 quid for the glasses and going with the UK company (rather than Giarre or Otticanet) in case of a problem?

Ordered from Otticanet probably 10 times and never had the slightest issue.

It'd certainly be easier for returns but I don't know if that's worth an extra £20. Try e-mailing them and ask if they'll price match.

Pretavoir only price match with UK companies I believe.

Edit: Yep, found the email reply where I asked for a pricematch from a Spanish site.

"Unfortunately we cannot accept this price match as Pretavoir can only consider a price match with other online UK retailers, which are based in the UK. They must also not be of a marketplace buying method, such as Ebay or Amazon."

Never support British business if you a can possibly help it. Even if you will have to wait a longer time for your item and sending them back is more of a problem. It matters as every penny counts.

Cool

This is what I mean when I tell people my frames are hip hop influenced (well New Jack Swing, same diff). People don't know..

My wife broked her glasses frames yesterday evening.


Any idea how this can be fixed? Should I bring them to an optician?

Thanks in advance

Sticking plaster is the most decent home repair.

anyone give me a hand understanding my prescription? Had an eye test as my last pair of glasses were useless. Went to specsavers as they had a free eye test promotion, but the fat cow got proper arsey when I asked for my full prescription, and so the one she's given reads as:

SPH CYL AXIS
R -1.25
L -1.00 -0.50 100

thats literally all thats on there, do I need any other values, and does the fact theres not a CYL or AXIS for my right eye mean its just the same as my left? Or is it incomplete?

Cheers in advance
