Bespoking by Luke

Attending one of the largest optical shows in North America was extremely exciting.  One of the highlights was  spending several hours with British eyewear designer Tom Davies.  Not only did he show us the new acetate and titanium additions to his collection, but he also showed us first-hand how the customization process works.  In fact, Karlyn McTaggart, an eye-bar optician and eyewear makeover expert, ordered a customized frame for herself.

Tom schooled us in the importance of following the natural browline and fitting the bridge (aka. your nose) perfectly.  Color selection is just as important, as there are over 40 acetates and 30 titanium colors to choose from.  Selection of finish is also relevant, as there are 3 finishes to choose from for every acetate.  It was inspiring to see Tom at work. 

In addition to the frames custom designed by eye-bar, we ordered an additional 30 pieces to enhance our Tom Davies selection process.  Each of these pieces can be purchased as ready-to-wear, or you may choose to customize it for fit, color and finish.  So why compromise?  Come in and have an eyewear makeover and explore the possibilities of the Tom Davies Bespoke Concept.  Made-to-measure eyewear is the next big thing, indulge yourself!

Tom Davies: Custom Bespoke Eyewear

At eye-bar, we’ve been customizing eyewear from the day we opened. As an independent eyewear store, we have infinite options when it comes to selecting the right lenses for you (many chain and discount optical stores use a stock lens that doesn’t necessarily work on everyone). Finding the right lenses for each individual client makes us smile. And now, we can perfectly customize eyewear. Yup, that’s right! eye-bar is now offering bespoke eyewear. We can take any frame from the Tom Davies collection and re-design it to fit your face, head and prescription. The result? A made-to-measure frame designed and built to fit you perfectly.

Bespoke eyewear goes well-beyond fit; it’s about style too. Drawing from an existing range of shapes, finishes and about 60 colours, you can work alongside our opticians to design a custom-made frame. Once you’ve made your selections, our opticians will create a blueprint for your frames. Four to six weeks later, these frames can be on your face.
