Most opticians will keep a stock of nosepads and be able to replace them, although they will be generic ones rather than Oliver Peoples ones (although no real difference in reality).

You can also buy your own here, although if doing that you'll need to check the fitting (i.e. screw or click).

Anyone ever had any Garrett Leights? What's the quality like? Worth dropping £ on them?

I have a pair of Garrett Leights. They are decent quality to me but I've not got much to compare them against. Certainly no complaints though. In the shop they were on par with the Oliver Peoples

Some decent Dior sunnies on Matches right now

Loved my pair until my girlfriend lost them. Still very bitter about it and bring it up constantly.

Gonna pain me to drop over 200 notes on another pair. They never get discounted.

Yeah I dunno if I can justify spending 200+ on a pair of sunglasses. Trying to convince myself I can Laughing out loud

Edit: I'm guessing any UK retailer selling them doesn't let you use codes on them either? e.g. End

They're good, but the quality's no better than Cubitts (which are £125) if you like any of their styles.

worth the money imo. can't really compare them to much, but I still love them after two years.

What makes you think they're not legit? They have contact information, VAT number, reviews on several platforms.
