Battle Of The Car Brands


Read about what attracts us to ‘car branded’ glasses and sunglasses.

There’s something about certain high-end car brands that inspires a sense of excitement, an understanding of quality and a feeling of luxury in most men but what does a car manufacturer know about designing glasses and sunglasses? In this blog I’ll be exploring what you get when you choose a pair designed by Bugatti, Jaguar or Porsche Design.

Believe it or not, there are quite a few aspects that do cross over. When you buy a car from one of those three brands, what do you expect? Comfort, Longevity, Exclusivity and Style. Plus speed of course, but glasses don’t have a 0-60 rating. However, all three brands do deliver on the other stuff when it comes to eyewear. Lets take a look:






It’s hard to explain what makes Bugatti glasses so special, but when you put them on you know. I’ve never been in a Bugatti car but I imagine the feeling is similar. Im sure the moment you start driving one you can tell its a class above. Every piece in the Bugatti eyewear range is made entirely by hand in France, and you instantly get that same impression. You can view the manufacturing process here, by the way:[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][fusion_youtube id=”” width=”600″ height=”350″ autoplay=”no” api_params=”” class=””/][fusion_separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”20″ bottom_margin=”0″ sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=””/][fusion_text]Bugatti glasses are timeless, original and very solid feeling. And they look great, although the styles are quite quirky. Certainly of the three brands were looking at here, they are the most stylish and fashionable.



Made in Germany, Jaguar frames are very strong and comfortable. One thing I love about Jaguar frames is that they all have a curve to them; this means they wrap around the face slightly which delivers more peripheral vision. This makes them excellent for driving. Therefore I would describe them as a real driving enthusiasts collection.

The new models in particular, which have carbon fibre arms, look very smart. Here’s a selfie a client of mine sent me recently wearing his new pair:


Another aspect which characterises Jaguar glasses is colour, but they do it well most men don’t want their glasses to be too bright, but at the same time colourful frames are growing in popularity. I remember a time men would wear only black, gunmetal, brown silver or gold. That’s not the case now. Jaguar glasses incorporate colour, but in a subtle way, such as flashes on the arms or on the inside of the frame, as you can see in this examples:



Porsche Design


Porsche Design Eyewear is renowned in the optical trade for technical luxury, which refers to the fact that they are incredibly well engineered for supreme comfort and durability. The attention to detail is unrivalled; for example, they feature unique nose pads which are less sticky than usual but still soft against the skin, in a custom shape to distribute weight better as well. They even have custom designed screws which fasten tighter and come loose less often. Porsche Design frames are made either in Japan or Italy, which are traditionally two of the best regions for eyewear design.

The best way to describe the styling is sleek. They just look so refined, minimalistic but also solid.


My Ratings


It’s worth bearing in mind that Bugatti and Porsche Design are a higher price point than Jaguar, so with that taken into account, I think its impressive that Jaguar frames still score well in every aspect. But if you want that bit extra, for example a stronger, longer lasting frame like the Porsche Design, or something unique and exclusive like Bugatti, then those two brands are a level above.

Well they you pay for what you get. It’s definitely true of The Spectacle Factory. There customer service is the best I have experienced anywhere. I was not rushed with any decision and I was made to feel like I was there most important customer. What I paid was an eye watering amount but I got smartlife ziess lenses and frames that are very comfortable. I now also have very clear vision when reading. I thought it was not clear due to lighting in modern offices and homes. Wrong it was bad lenses and persecution not being quite right. Thank you for sorting it all out at the first attempt.

ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT I have been using the Spectacle Factory for a long time, but the latest visit was the best BY FAR..... I desperately needed an eye test, and was fitted in quickly. James, the optician, was excellent , as usual. 4 members of staff were outstanding in the service I received. Robert, Ben and Emma were absolutely perfect.....and Ruth, the manager was excellent, as she always is. The best visit by far...I cannot rate this place higher !!!

Welcomed by and dealt with Robert during the whole process of choosing through to final fitting. Great service, great range of glasses, really helpful and informative. I would highly recommend

After reading all the positive reviews I decided that a 40 minute drive would be worth it to try and get a new prescription and frames- I wear my glasses all day so need to get this right. I was so impressed with everyone’s desire to be helpful and make sure I was happy at every part of my visit. I wasn’t the quickest at choosing new frames but never felt rushed by Robert. He listened and gave helpful advice as we worked through choosing the frames and lenses I needed. They have a huge range of frames which meant I ended up with a pair I was really happy with. I actually chose a pair of prescription sunglasses as well, which I have been meaning to do for years. I loved the combination of cutting edge technology and personalised service. It’s so nice to see a team that places such a priority on customer satisfaction - they certainly deserve 5 stars.

Fantastic service! I attended the spectacle factory over a year ago for an eye test. They were amazing, and so patient with me! My Polaroid frame broke recently, so in desperate need called the spectacle factory to order a replacement frame. They were so efficient and helpful. Also my frames were covered under warranty and I didn’t have to pay a penny. AMAZING. Couldn’t recommend them anymore!

Friendly service, thanks to Robert who took the time and care to ensure that I was happy with my new glasses. I would definitely recommend.

Visited the Spectacle Factory a couple of weeks ago for the first time. James did my eye test and was very thorough and informative. Chose a pair of glasses afterwards with the help of another member of staff. Great customer service. I have always gone to high street opticians before and never sure what glasses suit me. I was allowed to take my time and offered helpful advice. Love my new glasses which I picked up with the week. I will be returning to the Spectacle factory in the future. Far superior in terms of quality and customer service compared to other opticians I have been too.

My wife and I both have great glasses (and sunglasses) from The Spectacle Factory. Right from our very first visit we have been very impressed with the highest level of care and attention to detail, both with eye tests and the choice of lenses and frames. They seem to have a flair for helping you to choose the right glasses. Once your order is ready, nothing is too much trouble to ensure that the fit and the suitability of your glasses is perfect for your needs and that you are completely happy. Their ongoing service is second to none. We can highly recommend The Spectacle Factory..

- Geoff Gosling


Came in today for help with some frames, repaired no questions asked, there and then on the spot Brilliant service

- Alex


All the staff are so helpful and switched on to all your requirements I would recommend them all day what a good experience

- Roy gardiner


The Spectacle Factory offer me the kind of customer service and ability to customise my choice of spectacles that just is simply not available on the High Street. From Initial contact, to delivery of the finished product, you are treated like a loyal friend. Nothing is too much trouble. Unbiased advise, on choosing the correct spectacles for your particular application. A vast range of frames from the very cheapest to the latest designer frames. I choose the Spectacle Factory, because they can provide me with, customised glasses, to align with my particular needs and requirements. Most high street opticians have a 'one size fits all' attitude. The Spectacle Factory does not subscribe to this theory and treats every client as an individual. Their eye sight is very comprehensive and is 50% longer than the industry standard. If you value your eyesight, and want the very best care, this is the place to visit.
