I’m looking for a pair of neutral frames. After 2 years of the bright blue, I’m ready for a change that will last me even longer. Black feels too harsh for the romantic vibe I want, and Ethan doesn’t like brown. That leaves crystal clear, doesn’t it? I’ve searched all the sites I know, and I’ve found two frames I really dig. But here is my dilemma. Do I pay for the more appealing design or go for a cheaper copycat?
I’ve admired the Selima for J.Crew pair for a seriously long time. And then I found the Moscot, which have been iconic for Buddy Holly, Truman Capote, and Johnny Depp (Michelle Williams has been spotted in them too). But cheapie websites like Warby Parker and Lookmatic are challenging designer prices in a big way. I can see the differences, but are they enough to impact my decision?
What would you do if you wore glasses 24/7? Get a cheaper pair, or the frames that inspire the knock-offs?
