    Hi, im looking at getting some new glasses and have found some I like in the opticians, they are E.Armani and like most frames, are over £100. I'm on a bit of a budget tho. I have the item code.

    I was wondering if anyone has every bought any over the internet and could recomend a site. Did they come in perfect condition etc?


    Cheers

    Whoops they have my Oakley Jacknife 2 for £100 less than I paid from the shop. :o

    Still, I needed to try on lots of frames and the shop was good for that.

    Do I get a slice for saving you money!? :p

    They even have a shop in Butlers Wharf, near Tower Bridge in London, which is where I got my Jackknifes from, which gives you the oppurtunity to try all of *** frames you like on, and purchase for the same price as stated on their website.

    Thats good! Even if you bought a peak period one day travel card to get to London I'd still make a nice saving.
