40mm Monocles Available with +0.75 Lenses



It has always been possible to order our smaller size 36mm and average size 38mm monocles with a +0.75 dioptre lens and it was only as a result of a customer enquiry that we felt we also needed to provide this option for both our 40mm gold monocles and our 40mm silver monocles.

Gold coloured, 40mm monocle.Silver coloured, 40mm monocle.









It may be helpful for customers to know that the glazing service for these 40mm galleried monocles is undertaken by a UK optical laboratory and therefore delivery may take 10 - 14 days.

An Appearance in Tatler

comment here.

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!

Snooker/Billiard Glasses

Large snooker glasses in a gold coloured frame

We were recently asked for larger style frames for playing snooker or billiards. (I didn't actually realise that billiards was still played!)

Anyway as we like a reasonable challenge we sourced these snooker glasses and think they're just the job for those enthusiasts who now need a little extra help when potting the black!

Superior Cords to Compliment Colourful Glasses

Red 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 glasses cords are readily available in a variety of colours to suit even the most discerning, and at just GBP2.00 each we think they're well worth a punt.
What do you say Tim?
