Peep EYEWEAR: vintage shades

The best vintage and sustainable sunglasses

When the arm of my beloved 80s vintage shades broke, I wish I had known about Peep Eyewear – what I thought was an irreparable crack, they could have fixed with ease. At least now I know for next time.

But not only do Peep Eyewear do repairs of all descriptions, they are a virtual mecca of the most fabulous range of vintage frames you could ask for. Even better, they offer a personalised service that enables you to find exactly what you are looking for.

And even better still, all the vintage frames they sell are reconditioned including being fitted with modern optical grade 100% UVA/UVB lenses.

You can choose prescription lenses so you can use them for all your reading glasses needs too.

The process could not have been simpler:

  1. I sent in a photo of me wearing the sunglasses I wanted to replicate (above)
  2. Peep Eyewear posted me a number of frames that were of the same style
  3. I tried them on at home, chose my favourite and posted them back (using their prepaid label and packaging, so hassle free)
  4. Peep Eyewear fitted the lenses I chose and posted them back to me

End result: I have a bespoke pair of vintage frames, fitted with modern lenses and all for less than half the price I would have paid for a designer pair of new sunglasses.

I should point out that this is not an ad – I paid for my new glasses in full. I just love everything about Peep so much I wanted to share.

You can find out more about Peep Eyewear on their website here.
