These are solidly crafted frames at a great price. I myself own 4 pairs of Lookmatic sunglasses which I’ve purchased through various deals, including an earlier 50% off Fab coupon…
The red frames above are the “Ricky” model, and are very similar to the Moscot Lemtosh, and the other pair is called the “Austin,” and they owe a debt to the Ray-Ban Clubmaster.
Hi folks. I promise this is the last Lookmatic/Fab.com sale post, but I love a deal, and I love passing on a deal. I have no affiliation with either company. Until tomorrow morning 8:00am PST you can get 50% off Lookmatic glasses through Fab.com. If you follow the link provided below, you will get a $10 credit for signing up with Fab.com, bringing the total on your glasses to $19 for non-prescription eyewear, $34 for prescription eyewear, and $54 for high-index prescription eyewear. And if you buy anything from Fab.com in the next 30 days, I get bonus credits—win, win.
So, I just realized this deal for 50% off Lookmatic glasses from Fab.com is actually on until Sunday morning 8:00am PST. Also, if you sign-up for Fab.com through the link provided below you will get $10 credit (which I think you can put towards your sunglasses purchase, bringing them down to $34)! (**Again, I have no affiliation w/ either Lookmatic or Fab.com)
I’ve been meaning to do a post on eyewear since I first started this tumblr. I saw some post on my dashboard this morning about the pervasiveness at Pitti of sunglasses with the keyhole shaped bridge, and thought I might as well post something about eyewear now.
I got these sunglasses from Lookmatic (they were, until recently, called spexonline.com), an online eyewear retailer that sells fashionable and well-constructed frames at an affordable price ($88 w/ Rx lenses—clear or tinted—shipped + free returns). This is the Warby Parker online sales model, which seems to be making its way across the web, which is only good news for us deal hunters. Right when Warby Parker started, I ordered the 5 pair home-try-on kit, and none of the frames fit my face well, and I thought the construction felt a little cheap, even for the price. They may have upped their quality a bit since then, I can’t say. But I can say that I find that these Lookmatic frames feel much more solid and robust than those early Warby Parkers.
Lookmatic recently had a coupon code for 35% off in Lucky Magazine, which I used to buy my first pair of prescription sunglasses for just under $60. Then I was surfing the Lookmatic blog via their website, and found a link to a 2 for 1 coupon, and bought two more pairs of prescription sunglasses for $88 total. In my book, that’s a price that can’t be beat. This model is called the Hobbs.
