2 Designer pairs from Glasses Direct from £29 delivered (With Code) @ Glasses Direct

Posted 20th Feb

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Get £40 off your order, plus a free second frame when you buy from their DESIGNER range, starting at £69.

Exclusive and popular brands like London Retro, Scout and Polaroid. When you buy two pairs of £69+ frames with clear single vision basic lenses, and apply the code MSE29FEB at the checkout, you'll get them for just £29.

After adding the second pair to your basket, you can either enter your prescription or opt to send it later.

For the big brands with £99 frames this should knock the price down to £59, though other brands will cost more or less.

The angle here is probably to buy the more well known brands for £69 for 2 pairs...

I tried these for the first time recently and liked that you can try 4 pairs at a time for free before purchase. However, my pair cost £169 with all the bells and whistles: mind you, still considerably cheaper than I’d paid for glasses previously.

Indeed, and they are quite subtle with the "standard lenses" option that costs nothing button...
I got 2 pair of computer & 2 pair bifocal for a tad over £100 i would recommend

Once you’ve picked the frames you like the best, select the most suitable lens options & coatings. You can pick one of our great value lens packages that come with a variety of coatings such as scratch resistant, anti-reflection, and thin lens options. Alternatively, you can opt for free single vision basic standard lenses that have no protective coatings. We also offer a selection of bifocal and varifocal lens options. Our varifocal lenses are created from the latest Freeform technology, and are of the same quality as a very good varifocal from a high street optician. It’s worth noting: bifocal lenses are an extra £39, and varifocals are available from £49

Is it a "designer" frame?

If you want cheap standard glasses, then I suggest you wait for one for their 2 for £15 deals that they do...
Edited by: "zcaprd7" 21st Feb
What does designer frame mean? Is it a £1 frame with a logo on?

Designer frame means nothing. It is a misleading term applied to fool the ignorant.
Look at quality.

2 for £15 do not provide AR coating for free.
AR coating is essential, unless you want to look like Corbyn.

I challenge you to beat Googles4U prices for a frame, lenses with AR coating and photochromatic lenses.

Blank lenses with no coating have a trade price as low as $0.50.
The biggest cost is labour for glazing.
Many frames cost less than $0.50, trade.
You know £1 shop sells a frame and lenses for £1.
Their trade price is less than 50p.

Go to Optrafair and find out for yourself what margins are.
"Is it a £1 frame with a logo on".

Yes, sometimes, but not always.

Large brands spend millions of pounds a year, and have a vested interest in providing decent kit to protect their brand, not all do of course, but this thread is for a cheap pair of designer frames.

In any case, it's not really for you decide what people stick on their faces, I'm sure they are grown up enough to realise Lidl cornflakes cost less than Kellogs cornflakes, or will that be your next genius bit of insight?

If you wish to talk about non designer frames, I suggest you post your own deal, or start a discussion in one of the forums...

What is the definition of a designer frame? All frames are designed by someone.
Is it a price point? What stops £1 shop claiming their frames are designer frames?

This thread has falsely being described as "designer frames". I dispute they are any different to frames without such a claim.

There are some big names to mix and match - such as Joules, Karl Lagerfeld, Timberland, Fossil, Hackett and G Star Raw. If you want to, you can pay more for some others brands, such as Dune and Chronicle, but frames in its poshest 'Boutique' range, such as Prada, are excluded.

The question is, "What is the definition of a designer brand?"
Do I assume you have no answer?

Joules is a store. Is Superdrug a designer brand, how about £1 shop?

When does a brand become a designer brand?

Wiki is not a reliable source.

Since these are low cost items that middle class can afford, none of these frames are "designer".
May be they would need to be £1000 for a frame to be classed designer.

Do you realise Luxotica obtain frames from China at less than $0.50 and stick on a brand name, under licence?

Suggest what you want. Why not admit £100 frames are not designer brands. They are merely "brands".
You know its true.

"A famouscompany that makes expensiveclothes, bags, etc. and that is a well-known brand".

Famous = £1 shop. Well known £1 shop. Expensive = subjective
£1 shop is a designer brand!

Conclusion: a meaningless term to fool ignorant people.

I do not need to insult anyone. The term is used to con fools. An intelligent person would not repeat nonsense.
Thanks OP for your hard work. I've ordered 2 pairs of quality glasses, varifocals and a pair for reading.

Cost was £132 and I went for the 'silver lens' package. They would have been £108 for the lesser option.

All things considered it's a blooming bargain and I would be hard pushed to better the deal.

As for the pedants and their sole point being the term 'Designer'... Good grief.

You and I are fools apparently... After a mattress, your glasses are probably the most used item you'll buy, so it's nice to have a trendy bit of kit stuck on your face all day, without breaking the bank.

Otherwise, wait for the 2 for £15 deal, which is the cheapest I've seen...I'm waiting for the free tints offer to come around so I can get some cheap prescription sunnies.

Can I ask please, do you wear glasses?


You can ask!

I have worn glasses for many years and have a relatively high prescription.
I always buy lenses with AR coating and photochromatic lenses.
Edited by: "Common.Sense" 21st Feb
Thanks for the reply.

I'm sure you have bought glasses that are a better quality than others over the years.

I know the term 'designer' is subjective and a marketing device. Might you agree that it can also be an indicator of quality?

It's true 'Designer' can also be a falsehood, such as if it's a Mike Ashley Sports Direct brand buy-up; Dunlop, which is now rubbish, used to be reliable but now the brand is traded simply for it's familiarity and previous association with quality whilst flogging third rate crap.

My recent pair of 'designer' glasses are the best made I have ever owned (paid £20.98, online via this site). As a note, I try to go for glasses where there is no obvious branding visible as I don't wish to be an advert.
