So lots of people have been asking me about my spectacles and despite linking / mentioning them in my videos, people have still been asking. So I figured I would dedicate a post to them. I've gone through loads of different pairs of glasses because I get bored easily or they have never been quite right. I had been looking at Oliver Peoples since I knew I needed glasses and have always wanted them but never actually went for it (I have no idea why!).

I finally took the plunge and bought myself a pair of the Emerson's in Matt Sycamore and I can't explain how happy I am with these. They fulfil all my needs; I love the look of them, they are comfortable to wear and can be worn with casual or smart wear which is awesome! Now they are definitely not the cheapest frames out there, but like I said I have been through many pairs and none of them compare to these, they are worth every penny! I can definitely say that I will be wearing these for a long time and will more than likely stick with Oliver Peoples from now on.

Here's my 5 quick tips for finding your perfect pair of spectacles

1.     Take a friend or family member with you that will give you a truly honest opinion
2.    Pick a colour that will go with the majority of your outfits /compliments them
3.    The cheapest or the most expensive are not always the best option
4.    Don't pick a pair just because they are in fashion, they need to suit you and your style
5.    Make sure you really do like them, if you are unsure initially you will not wear them!

I hope this has been helpful, let me know if more of these types of post would be good to do in the future.

Steve.
