Hi folks. For those of you that don't know, I've recently been prescribed glasses for reading/VDU use; I've never had glasses before and don't usually bother with sunglasses either, so the whole 'spectacle' (see what I did there) is a bit of a novelty.
When the lovely folk at Specspost asked if I'd like to review some of their products, as I already purchased my glasses frames and prescription lenses from another retailer, I opted to try their sunglasses. I was able to choose three pairs to review and Specspost very kindly allowed me to keep all three as a gift (I was initially able to keep one pair as a gift, but as I didn't need prescription lenses they said that I could keep all three!).
The amount of frames that they have to choose from is quite phenomenal; you'd be hard placed not to find at least one you like! There prices are reasonable too and start from £26.00 including standard lenses. When I was browsing their website I was really impressed with the amount of information provided and it was really easy to use.
I chose to review the "Katie" Pink Sunglasses (currently on offer for £30.00 instead of £35.00), Black and Purple Vintage Chic Sunglasses (£27.00) and "Festival" Pink Geek Style Sunglasses (£23.00). Here they are on (in the order listed, l-r):
Each pair came well protected in its own case. I think my favourites are the "Festival" Pink Geek Style Glasses, what do you think? They all felt comfortable and weren't a squeeze to fit my slightly larger than average head, although I think the "Katie" Pink Sunglasses were marginally less comfortable (probably due to their size).
Honestly I can't fault them at all really, although if I were shopping for sunglasses I would probably spend less given that I don't need prescription lenses; but if you do, they're a definate bargain and I will certainly be checking out Specspost next time I'm in the market for glasses. Retro frames ahoy!
Now, I'm off to catch some rays in style...well, when the sun comes out :)
