Talisa was visiting from Switzerland and found us at our Thursday stall at the Old Spitalfields Antiques Market and
couldn't decide. So she came back the following day to our shop in Bow and still couldn't narrow it down to a single
pair - so she bought two. To help with the extra expense, she offered her photo for the website - our gain, Talisa!
Nic from Sydney, Australia was over here seeing the sights, including Old Spitalfields Market. He went big and
bought numerous pairs, some for us to fit his prescription lenses and ship back to him - and these, a pair of
1960s NHS specs fitted with glass sun lenses - perfect for punting on the Thames, or indeed beachside in Bondi.
Acacia from Toronto, Canada fell for these never worn Christian Dior sunglasses from the early 80s, finished in
frosted Optyl that she found on our website. And no wonder, they look and fit fab. Perfect for a photo shoot!
Thanks, Acacia!
Long-time kustomer Robin from London has bought more than one of these from us over the years - he keeps
being drawn back to the original Wayfarer by Bausch & Lomb, this pair early 1980s with the lozenge shields
pinned front and sides. A sturdy pair in mock-tortoise acetate with original mineral glass B&L G15 lenses, rugged
enough for an African safari, obvs.
Previous customer Julian from Surrey, UK went for the very collectible wrapped 60s sunglasses from
(what were then) American Ray-Ban - the Balorama. In black it is iconic as it featured in cult movie,
Dirty Harry as Clint Eastwood's cool shades. Hope we made your day, Julian! (sorry, couldn't resist...)
Gilda from Alabama, USA already had this model in tortoise and knew it would fit, so added the black to her
optical wardrobe. When she received them she was thrilled: "I just wanted to let you know that I received the
frames in perfect condition! They're absolutely stunning!!!! Thank you for being so amazingly awesome!"

Thank you, Gilda, for the fabulous photo! [1960s by Swank (USA/FRANCE)]
Regular customer Ben from London likes a frame for every occasion - this maybe the fifth or 6th pair he's bought
from us. This one late 50s/early 60s, Made in England. Looking good, Ben.
Rick from London loved this model of sunglasses so much - he bought two! This is the first in a demi-amber. It is a
wrapped frame, the model was called Munich and was made in the early 1970s by the Spanish maker, Servin. Once
Rick determined that his prescription lenses could be fitted in to this very curved frame, he gladly came back for a
second pair we had in mottled grey. (Sept, 2022)
Kitty found these fab 1980s Cazals on our stall at Spitalfields and snapped them up. We fitted her lenses and shipped
them off to her in Chester, UK. Kitty immediately responded with this photo attached: "Got the glasses and they are sick!
So happy with them! Thank you so much for being so efficient!"
CAZAL MOD179 COL261 (April, 2022)
Jeanette sent us this photo from Arizona, after she bought this pair from us at Spitalfields Market. A 1960s white gold-fill
frame made by Art-Craft in New York. Jeantte said these were " hard to find in the US.." - that's because we bought them
all up, Jeanette - soz!
Brooke from NYC bought a few pairs when she visited our stall at Spitalfields - this late 70's pair the pick of the bunch:
a brushed aluminium frame with the original gradient mid-brown sun lenses, was made by Actuell (Germany).
Gjalt recently wrote to us from his home in Maastricht, The Netherlands, about a pair he bought from us at Spitalfields
4 years ago, a leather covered gold-fill frame from Savile Row (England): "You strongly advised me to purchase this
exceptionally rare leather-finished pair, and I must say I am ever so happy I did. As you can see on this photo, taken in
Givet, France, it really is a beauty! People around keep giving me lots of compliments about this pair, so I would like to
pass this appreciation to you, thanks to your excellent advice. By the way: the car is a 1937 CitroŽn Traction Avant
Limousine, fully operational, and perfectly matching my specs."

Eleonora from Italy bought this cool 70's brushed white gold frame from our stall and tagged us in to this fab photo.
Grazie, Eleonora! .
Silvia was visiting from Waldshut (near the Swiss border, Germany) and couldn't resist this large, round
blonde frame by Anglo American (UK) from the 1980s. We had her lenses fitted and shipped them off and
since then she's been sending us selfies. Looking great, Silvia.
Willem from Voorthuizen (Netherlands) bought this 1980s Cordoba by Carrera last year. He just sent us
his photo with this message: "I've been wearing the sunglasses all summer, and I absolutely love 'em! Thanks
again and greetings from The Netherlands!"
Thank you for a great photo, Willem - loving the vintage VW vans.
Jeff hails from the States but has made Sunderland his home. And why not, check out their beaches. He
recently visited us in London and made this 1960's/70's UK Optical frame his own. So impressed with our
service, he immediately ordered another frame for his brother in NYC. Thanks, Jeff! (April, 2019)
Regular kustomer Roger must have had to search for this iconic background prop to take this photo for us
- or maybe there's an app these days to find the fast disappearing phone boxes. Regardless, it's the 1980's
frame that's grabbing the attention here. Cheers, Roger. (October, 2018)
Jordi was visiting from Barcelona when he found these classic shaped 1960's sunglasses. We needed to
do some bespoke adjustments to them and them shipped them off to him in Spain. Jordi was so happy with
his new sunglasses, he took them just north to sunny Badalona and took this photo for us. Thanks again, Jordi!
Julie and John were down from Yorkshire visiting their son, (Ben, on the left) and each found a pair they
couldn't resist. Julie's are 1960's by BAO, the British arm of American Optical and John went for a similar
era NHS frame made by UK Optical. (September, 2018)
Dominique from Irchenrieth, Germany visited us a couple of years ago when she bought the pair she's
modelling on our home page. This time she opted for a 1960's upswept diamanté frame Made in France.
Hope to see you again soon! (August, 2018)
