Scout East Frames

Scout East framesGlasses Direct

My all-time favourite glasses - a pair of vintage duo-tone frames - are so old now the hinges are a little loose and the lenses are pretty badly scuffed up and I'm almost certain they're going to give up on me any day now. I have plenty of frames to choose from but there's something really classic about a tortoiseshell pattern and these East frames by Scout make a welcome new addition to my collection.

What makes these glasses so versatile is the classic, vintage-inspired shape with slightly larger lenses, creating a complementary addition to any outfit that isn't at all overpowering. The dark tortoiseshell is a beautiful alternative to black frames and I find wearing them adds a softer more subtle touch. The best part is they are almost identical to my oldest pair and just as lovely, making them a worthy replacement I'm happy to wear.
