If you need a new pair of specs (or are facing up to the fact that it’s finally time for your first), the FINLAY store in Soho should be your first stop. Not only do they offer in-store eye tests using the latest equipment, they’ve got a curated selection of frames from 14 independent brands, including Grey Ant, Cutler & Gross, Prism and Kaleos, as well as their own collection of specs and sunnies. FINLAY glasses are all handmade in the Italian Alps using Mazzucchelli acetate and Carl Zeiss lenses, and with spectacles starting at £100 (prescription lenses from £50) and sunnies starting at £120, you get a lot of craftsmanship for your money.
And if you need help picking the perfect pair, the in-store specialists are a dab hand at helping you find the right ones for your face shape, and most styles are unisex so it’s even easier to choose.
We’ve hooked up with FINLAY to offer LOTI readers sight tests, usually £30, for FREE. Just book an eye test using the code LOTI before 30th September 2018 to claim your freebie
