The majority of spectacles are made for the majority of people; if you are broad or narrow in the face, if you have a low or wide bridge to your nose or some degree of facial asymmetry then you may have experienced difficulties in finding frames that look good and fit well.
A frame that is made to measure could be the answer and gives huge control over colour, shape and style allowing you to create something completely individual, whether that’s with just a small tweak to size or creating something with bright colours and a distinctive shape.
Tom Davies bespoke frames are brilliant for people that know what they want but always have difficulty finding it. By finding a frame within the range that’s nearly right, and then tweaking the size, colour and fit the process, when guided by our dispensing opticians, is remarkably straightforward.
A bespoke frame will take a little longer to be ready and cost a little more, but you can end up with something perfect for you at less than you think.
Tom Davies began his work as a designer in 1996 and soon identified a need to offer properly fitting spectacles that were exceptionally comfortable and looked superb.
By 2008, Tom had opened his own factory and offered a full bespoke service through his global network of exclusive opticians, which we are delighted to say now also includes BBR Optometry.
All Tom Davies frames are handcrafted using the finest materials and each takes between 16 and 22 hours of close, detailed work by dedicated experts. These experts are trained for 10 years to ensure each individual piece made is close to a work of art, perfectly finished and fitted individually to the wearer.
To ensure wearers gain the full benefits of Tom Davies frames, BBR carries out a bespoke consultation to see which designs will best suit their personality, lifestyle and natural features.
A series of precision measurements are then taken to help create a bespoke frame. These details are sent to the Tom Davies design studio where the eyewear is first designed and then the frames are made in their workshop.
Finally, all bespoke frames are finished with the name of the customer engraved discreetly on the inside of the temple arm.
Tom Davies designed Superman Clark Kent’s signature frames and the iconic eyewear is also a favourite with celebrities, including actors Angelina Jolie and Kevin Spacey as well as chef Heston Blumenthal.
For those looking for a bit of luxury Tom Davies frames can be made in natural horn, typically buffalo. Horn frames look and feel beautiful and are substantially lighter than plastic frames.
