When looking for vintage glasses frames you don’t have to spend a ton of money on your purchase or go with an outdated pair. There are several contemporary versions of vintage glasses that are made with the latest materials such as cellulose acetate and stainless steel and that offer you the same charm and quality of the original styles.
When buying any pair of frames or vintage glasses it’s a good decision to match quality with affordability, and you get exactly that when you shop at Classic Specs. We offer a select group of vintage frames that are sure to impress, and you can request to see them in person with our home try on kit which is available to you at no charge.
You don’t need to spend much money at all
Although you’ll find a huge range of different prices when it comes to vintage glasses frames, you’ll want to be careful to avoid most of the companies and individual sellers who mark up their prices and claim to offer some type of exclusive or rare vintage frames.
This is often just a sales tactic to lure potential customers in and sell frames that may not be what the seller is claiming. To find high quality and durable vintage frames you shouldn’t need to spend much money at all. Companies like Classic Specs offer them to you at $120 or less for non-Rx versions, made with top tier materials and with a full money back guarantee.
Check the materials used for your frames
Cellulose acetate is one of the most commonly used materials for premium grade designer glasses. Other materials that may be used for vintage glasses frames include metal alloys, nylon, aluminum, stainless steel and more. You’ll want to choose a material that is corrosion resistant, hypoallergenic (especially if you have had frame allergies in the past), lightweight, and strong.
That’s exactly what cellulose acetate offers, and the majority of the frames offered on Classic Specs are primarily constructed with this top tier material. Older antique or vintage frames may be constructed from brittle materials, so you’ll want to avoid purchasing those and stick to a newer option.
Don’t hesitate to buy vintage eyeglasses online
There’s plenty of reasons why you should look outside of your local eyewear retailer as you shop for your next pair of vintage eyeglasses; you’ll generally save significantly more money by using an online store like Classic Specs, and the quality of your purchase is also guaranteed just as it would be at a local store. If you’ve purchased eyeglasses online before you know how fast and easy the process is.
