Rimless Eyewear

pair of rimless reading glasses.This fashionable style of rimless eyewear has been glazed with a medium sized reading lens with a height of 23mm.

It is very comfortable to wear and has silver coloured flexible temples and a matching nose bridge.

• It may be helpful to know that the glazing service for these spectacles is undertaken by a U.K. optical laboratory and despatch may take 10 - 14 days.

An Appearance in Tatler

gold coloured monocle and cord
We were only too happy to help when contacted recently by Tatler for their main fashion story featured in September's issue.

The shoot called "A game of Cluedo" dressed each of the characters with killer style and placed them in rooms where the deadly deed perhaps took place...

Colonel Mustard, in the study with a dagger, looked suitably composed as she scrutinised the reader from behind her yellow gold monocle - challenging the notion that monocles are the preserve of men!

Superior Cords to Compliment Colourful Glasses

spectacle cord

When we take a (quick!) lunch break we always look forward to the BBC's Bargain Hunt and we especially enjoy watching the cheery host Tim "let's go bargain hunting" Wonnacott who never appears to wear the same pair of reading glasses twice. Well done Tim!

The retaining cords attached to his glasses are also noteworthy and often as brightly coloured as the spectacles. We feel that a good quality glasses cord of a heavier weight and with strong rubber grippers is important to firmly secure the specs. As you might expect our cords are readily available in a variety of colours to suit even the most discerning, and we think they're well worth a punt.

Half-Rim Reading Glasses

half-rim reading glasses in a thin, metal spectacle frameWe recently received two new designs of half-rim reading glasses which we believe will be excellent additions to our collection. The first one (pictured right), is a classically shaped thin metal frame with comfortable nose-pads and acetate tips.

The second one is a modern take on a classic design, and this red spectacle frame has eye-catching detail to the acetate tips.
