Has anyone seen any fabulous (plastic) green glasses frames?

My optician says they will order some in, if I can find them or I can buy the frames and they will glaze them

But everything is blue, purple or metal!

Where should I look?

Yes, try glassesdirect

They have them in Flying Tiger but they are ready readers .
you could remove the lenses perhaps and ask optician

Loads online. Googles4you off the top of my head. I got 4 pairs for £10. Just a reading prescription and not green but I’ve seen them.

Anything here? Blacks do retro inspired frames and every shape comes in a huge variety of colours. Not cheap but they are very lovely and the quality and service (including aftercare) is great. They have a couple of branches, which are worth a visit if you can!

Glassesdirect obviously use the word green to mean a different colour to the one I mean

Black are great @WhenIGrowUpIWantToBeAPenguin I'll see if I can visit

I can't find the flying tiger ones - i'll keep looking

Have you tried specsavers? I was in my local one yesterday to collect my green metal framed glasses and they had a few green plastic ones too.

These are a great colour!

I've got some nice green ones from Specsavers - I think they might be Nicole Farhi.

spec savers have green glasses was in there a few days ago

KatyMac Sat 01-Feb-20 22:25:31

A lot of specsavers have a small bit of metal on the arm...

I do like the ace & Tate ones @DoorbellsSleighbellsSchnitzel

My branch have another site in Cromer - I may go and look there - apparently Come is more up-to-date than Statham!

Ray Ban do a green frame.

My local opticians sells loads of more “statement” styles like this brand:

These Superdry frames from Specsavers? The frames look dark in the picture but in real life they're dark green

BBBear Sun 02-Feb-20 09:20:15

Moscot usually have some styles in green

Seashell80 Sun 02-Feb-20 09:42:28

Try Etnia Barcelona for funky styles and colours-they will definitely have various shades of green. Also check out Tom Davies they do full bespoke and ready to wear, they definitely have a vibrant green as we have it at work! The beauty of TD is that if you find a shape you like in their RTW you can have it in pretty much any colour and finish you fancy!

Hopefully the links work 🤞🏻

I got my new green plastic rimmed glasses in specsavers 2 weeks ago.

FamilyOfAliens Sun 02-Feb-20 09:51:34

This is a shame. I got my first green framed glasses five years ago and have been trying to find a replacement pair recently - looks like everyone’s going to be wearing them now sad

Iamtooknackeredtorun Sun 02-Feb-20 09:55:45

Face a face do gorgeous frames and can make them in different colour ways and sized to fit your face

TheCountessatHotelCortez Sun 02-Feb-20 14:19:32

I got mine from vision express green tortoiseshell but that was a year ago

VeniceBeach Sun 02-Feb-20 14:54:02

I tried these on in the opticians a few months ago and I loved them! They have more green in person.

VeniceBeach Sun 02-Feb-20 14:58:55

Although just noticed they have a tiny bit of metal, sorry!
