Choosing The Right Frames For Your Face Shape

The wide variety of different styles and shaped glasses make choosing the right pair no easy task. As well as supporting your vision with quality lenses, your glasses should fit effortlessly with your personal style and reflect your personality.

Viper in The Wolverine wears Tom Ford Sunglasses

Okay, we admit it, it’s true, we like movies at SelectSpecs.com and especially Superhero movies it seems.  This week we went to see The Wolverine with Hugh Jackman… We didn’t actually go with Hugh Jackman unfortunately, he’s just in the film.

Lenny Kravitz Wearing Aviator Sunglasses and a Chuffin’ MASSIVE Scarf!!!

Lenny Kravitz was out Christmas shopping in New York this week, wearing a hat, sunglasses and scarf and looking all fashionable and what-not. Who says you can’t wear sunglasses in Winter, when the sun is low in the sky?

Lenny Kravitz was wearing Aviator Sunglasses, one of his favourite styles (based on previous sightings).  But its hard not to notice that MASSIVE carpet off-cut he seems to be wearing for a scarf.  That’s probably a field-full of sheep that has gone into producing that fashion accessory… The thing must weigh an absolute tonne.  Whatever way
