    Ok, so like, I need glasses right. And have needed them for quite a while.

    But like, every store I go into, Specsavers, Boots Opticians, D&As etc., I find nothing but ridiculous gaudy designer ones with totally non-congruent colour schemes which just look weird and look like something a camp male fashion designer would wear, or there's the million and one pairs of old peoples Aviator style glasses. (seriously, how much goddamn pairs do they need). Yet I see many people walk about with DECENT glasses which don't look like OAPs glasses or spectacles crossed with a stressed paint-mixer.

    I very rarely am able to find anything inbetween these two, or if I do, they're rimless or tiny little lenses.

    Where on earth does someone find some decent sorta square rimmed slightly-emo glasses these days? x.x;;

    Where do you lot go for yours?

    I got mine from Specsavers. The lighting in there is bad though. I thought they were black and they turned out to be a very dark green. They still look good though I get a lot of compliments.

    I get mine in a local opticians. The chain stores are more likely to have generic "fashionable" ones. Don't underestimate the local smaller shops.

    Ahhh. So this is where you all get them. X3

    Soliek, would there be any chance of a site which I can upload a photo to, to see how they would look on my face first? >_>

    All of my old glasses have been from Specsavers, but I'm trying to find a shop stocking a certain pair of frames by Storm so I can try them on....but it looks like I'm going to have to request them from Glasses Direct

    I've actually just got some new frames today from Specsavers. They're the first designer pair I've ever had; really comfortable and quite cool.
    Look a bit like this, made by F CUK.

    I use Specsavers, and I have a cool pair of Ralph Lauren glasses which are worth about £135, I think. However, I'm still in education so it costs me about £30.
