Fuck sake thought they might be, really like them but £240!
Han look like they do a similar model and colour for £100

Would there be much difference quality wise between the two?

It's high quality, but they've also built up a big following over the decades and people are prepared to pay for it.

You'll struggle to find anything similar in metal without a premium price tag, it's expensive to produce frames like that. Matsuda might be worth a look, I think they're a bit cheaper than Dita.

Companies like Illesteva, Garrett Leight, Krewe and the usual suspects like Cubitts, Bailey Nelson, Oliver Peoples, etc will have an approximation of that idea in acetate (i.e. acetate rims around the lenses but a metal bridge).

Cheers Andy. Had a quick look round n don't seem to be able to find any. I've lost 3 pairs in the last year so just can't justify the Ditas

Got a pair of Oliver Peoples Strummers if anyone is interested. Hardly worn with case, etc.

Looking for £130

Anyone know where I can get something similar to these Garrett Leights, but at about half the price?
I'd ideally like a similar coloured lense but not too fussed.

Depend what it is you like about them? If it's just the wayfarer style and clear then Cubbitts, but if there's anything else like the arms or the way they extend at the top etc, then be good to narrow it down.

Cheers burny, I think it's just the clear and wayfarer style I like more than anything - I'll have a look are Cubbitts see what they've got. Cheers!

No worries, I'd say Seaford or Whidbourne would be your answer.
