Frames Direct vs. Classic Specs
Frames Direct is a one-stop shop for everything eyewear-related. From a variety of contact lens options to hundreds of designer glasses on offer, you’re truly spoilt for choice. The customer service team is made up of qualified opticians and always on hand to help. Also, for every pair of eyeglasses bought, the company will donate a pair to someone who needs them.
Classic Specs produce stylish frames for men and women, starting at $49. As well as their standard collections, they collaborate with artists to create one-of-a-kind limited editions. They have two physical retail locations in the US, in addition to their online store, and offer a “Home Try On” service.
The site has a very basic Face Shape Guide and Glasses Size Guide. There’s no way of telling whether your chosen pair of specs will suit you until they arrive at your doorstep and you’ve tried them on. Plus the Frames Direct standard shipping times can vary depending on what you’ve ordered and where you’re located.
The company does ship internationally, but it’s going to cost you $30. Also, the returns policy is not straightforward. If you make a purchase and decide it’s not right, you’re encouraged to visit your optometrist and Classic Specs will cover the cost of fixing the issues.
Frames Direct offer an abundance of fashion-forward designer brands at incredible discounted prices. You can tell that they’re part of a company that has been in the business for a long time and know what they’re doing, just by how informative and extensive their website is. There’s no doubt about it: Frames Direct is an eyewear innovator.
Classic Specs feature fashion-forward glasses with different lens options. Their online collections might be focused, but they’re affordable and distinguishable. The artist collaborations are also super individualistic. The company have some great resources on their site, in addition to their “Home Try On” service, which helps you to find the perfect frames for you. However, the company loses kudos for its complex returns policy and steep international shipping costs.
