Glasses.com vs. Classic Specs
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.
Even though Glasses.com allow free shipping for their US customers, they don’t ship internationally. In addition, they don’t offer contact lenses, and some of their frames have extremely high price points for those with lower disposable income.
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.
Glasses.com are much more fashion-forward than your standard eyewear retailer, providing an extensive range of on-trend designer sunglasses at high-end price points. The shipping costs and times are ideal if you live in the US; however, it’s a shame that they don’t ship internationally.
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.
