When people ask me how much you should spend on glasses I usually say that if it seems like a really good price – for example "buy-one-get-one-free", "free lenses", "frames just $29.99" – then in all likelihood, it probably isn't. You get what you pay for
Just like with a decent watch, dishwasher or car, a more expensive pair of specs will most likely last longer and fit better.
So when my Dad told me about his pal Ash's new Andy Wolf Havana Gold frames, I gave a big thumbs up. They look great and I'm certain they'll last.
