Designer frames in under an hour

Notebook HERO.jpg

Along with owning a Scalextric set that did nothing but emit a strong burning smell, wearing bad glasses was – and doubtless still is – a widely accepted part of growing up.

But hey, at least the whole ‘Should’ve gone to Specsavers’ thing didn’t exist when we were kids. In any event, to counter such backhanded drollness, luxury online eyewear retailer MyOptique has assembled a crack team of style gurus to provide expert spectacle advice for the optically challenged gentleman.

Simply upload a photo of your face, answer some taxing questions (‘What’s the frequency with which you change your hair?’, ‘What’s your favourite colour?’, ‘What three things would you take to a desert island?’ and so on) and await a response.

You won’t be left hanging – within an hour, MyOptique’s team will analyse your skin tone and personality traits before delivering its recommendation for the frames that suit you best from brands such as Tom Ford, Police, Ray-Ban and Jil Sander.

What’s more, if you’re so busy that you can’t even spare a measly 60 minutes, you can avail yourself of instant advice in the website’s ‘My Icons’ section, which lets you browse and buy eyewear like those worn by stylish gents such as Frank Sinatra, David Bowie, Robert Redford or Denis Taylor. Kidding about that last one.
