That Eye Respect site is the brand's site, it's legit. They make the Oliver Spencer glasses.

I don't know of anywhere in London but Premiere Optical in Essex are good for repairs.

Got the Oliver Spencers from Eye Respect
compared to SS14 the quality is wank
they are no longer made in Italy but apparently 'hand designed in England' and made in China
If I had paid £185 from Mrp or End I would feel totally raped

I know nothing about sunglasses so looking for a bit of help. Are Oliver Peoples or Persol decent and which frame on here would be a safe bet for a classic style - was looking at the OP Strathmore ? Also is this site legit as the prices seem pretty cheap ?

Never mind the return address, look at the prices! Also they've just taken the logo from https://www.sunglasses-shop.co.uk.

Oliver Peoples and Persol are both decent brands. I like OP more than Persol because I don't like the metal details on Persol frames but plenty of people do.
