Undostrial glasses are the ultimate Oakley killer

Undostrial glasses have the same sporty aesthetic as Oakley glasses.

Oakley is one of the most commonly requested brands of glasses in the world. People love three things about them:

  • Straight-fit arms (rather than ones which curve around the ears)
  • Good build quality
  • A reputable, well known name

But are they the only glasses which deliver on these things? Well, if you are willing to forgoe the brand name and that flashy ‘O’ on the side of your frames, you can actually get much better. Introducing Undostrial glasses:

In this video we explore the glasses manufactured in Paris by Lucas de Stael, including Undostrial frames.

Undostrial glasses also have that sporty, straight fit that grips to the head just like Oakleys, except they are around 1/4 of the weight, so are even less likely to slip off. Added to this is the one-piece construction which gives the frames just enough tension to hold them in place without ever pressing into the skin.

They are incredible to wear; almost like wearing no glasses at all. And because of this, they don’t necessarily feel as secure as a heavy pair of Oakley’s. But don’t let that fool you because these frames do not move. What’s more, you can even customise the colour of the rubber grips to whatever shade you like, from neon pink to plain black.

A lot of people take it for granted that because Oakley frames are so popular, they must be good. The truth is that Oakley haven’t really innovated since they were (unwillingly) purchased by Luxottica all the way back in 2007. They haven’t needed to.

And this is not to say they are bad, because that is far from the truth – as many wearers will attest. However, other manufacturers have been innovating during this time, and Lucas de Stael, who produce each Undostrial frame in their workshop in Paris, is one such manufacturer.

Every single Undostrial frame is produced by hand using cutting edge equipment.

Proof of the difference in quality is the fact that whilst Oakley glasses carry a 1-year warranty, Undostrial glasses are instead guaranteed for 3. Being made from one flexible piece of Swedish surgical steel, Undostrial glasses don’t even have any screws to come loose.

So, if you’re looking for a pair of Oakley glasses, perhaps you should look further? If you can see past the brand name, you could get yourself a significant upgrade.

Five stars without any hesitation. I immediately felt at ease and the atmosphere was very welcoming. The service was prompt and efficient. I felt the examination was very thorough and any questions I had were clearly answered. When it came to choosing my frames and what my prescription involved the options available to me were fully outlined. I didn’t feel under any pressure and I felt in charge of the transaction. From entering to leaving it was a lovely experience. I was a little hesitant in the current situation, but my fears were soon allayed as every precaution was taken to minimise the risks. Superior to any high street optician. Excellent all round! EH

Living some 300 miles from The Spectacle Factory visiting was not an option for me, however, after checking all the reviews I decided not only to buy my J.F. Rey frames (seen on an online video by Robert) but also have my Zeiss smart life progressive lenses made by them. I had no worries. After taking advice from Robert the measurements required for the lenses were done locally at a nominal cost. I am now the proud owner of a pair of handmade 'wow' glasses and a very happy new customer. Use them with confidence. The customer service is truely outstanding.

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 !!!

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!

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..

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.
