Hey, Four Eyes!

How long did you spend looking for your last pair of frames? Days, weeks, 10 minutes after your eye test?

Here’s the problem – finding stylish, yet affordable, frames that suit your face is actually pretty difficult. It can feel like looking for a needle in a haystack, and in turn, we tend to go one way or the other.

We either tirelessly hunt for the right pair – only to eventually settle for something cheaper, because our ideal frames are too expensive. Or, we start feeling the pressure to just pick a pair and get out of the door, ultimately coming away with frames we hate.

And, there’s nothing worse than hating your glasses. You have to wear them every day.

Shopping for frames itself can sometimes be a bit stuffy, to say the least. There’s often minimal options – and awful mirrors. (No one looks good in those mirrors. It’s not just you.) There’s very rarely anyone around with any style experience to tell you whether the frames actually look good on you or not and so, of course, we panic. And we purchase. And then we regret our decision when we get home.

Which is why we created Spexbox.

Glasses are a huge style commitment. They’re on show every day. They should be more than just comfortable and practical – they should frame your face, enhance your unique features, and feel downright fantastic when they’re on.

And let’s face it, when you’ve found the right pair, you just know. You get compliments in them. They’re comfy. They’re ‘you’. We think everyone should have that feeling when they walk away with a new pair.

So, we did what we had to do and created a company devoted to not only offering the frames you want to wear at an affordable price (yep, stylish, fancy, designer ones) but also devoted to making sure that you walk away with the right pair of frames for you.

Aside from the actual frames, shopping for glasses at Spexbox is just more fun. For a start, there’s actual, proper mirrors. You can take your time. You’ll get a good brew (we are northern after all) and you can bring your dog!

More importantly, there’s expert frame stylists on-hand to make sure you walk away with a pair you love. In fact, you can pop in just for a style consultation, and walk away with a bespoke style card, featuring recommended frames for your face and features.

Plus, if you don’t find a pair you absolutely love, we’ll make them for you. No, really. Not kidding. We do that too.

Find the glasses you actually want to wear. Head to www.spexbox.co.uk to book a free style consultation, or simply pop in to see us in Salvage House. We’ll pop the kettle on!
