Le Specs RX Handmade
“Wearing prescription sunglasses doesn’t need to be dull. The Le Specs range of prescription sunglasses is designed to create looks that are forward yet classic, while still remaining affordable.”
Hamish Tame, Creative Director, Le Specs
Designed in Sydney, Australia, our range of Le Specs prescription sunglasses (also known as RX sunglasses) are crafted from the finest materials and components, with a focus on unique design and affordability. With over 40 years’ experience in eyewear, our collection of RX sunglasses has been meticulously designed to stand alone as a distinguished fashion brand in the optical market.
Focusing on excellence and value, every frame is crafted with the combination of handwork and the state-of the art machinery, using exceptional technical expertise to ensure each pair exceeds all quality expectations. Offering frames for both men and women, the extensive selection of looks and sizes are crafted using bespoke materials and details, and can all be fitted with prescription sunglass lenses.
Our RX sunglasses are crafted from cellulose acetate which we use for its natural feel, gloss sheen and hypoallergenic properties. We work closely with our acetate manufacturers to create bespoke colours that are unique, wearable and flattering. All acetate frames can be heated and adjusted to fit all face shapes and sizes.
Each of our metal frames are forged from stainless steel, which we use for durability, corrosion-resistance and long lasting wear. The lightweight and pure properties of stainless steel make it hypoallergenic, perfect for sensitive skin.
Fitted for optimum clarity and premium vision. Our CR39 lenses filter sunlight so that vision is sharper, with improved colour definition and contrast, providing 100% UVA / UVB protection.
German Engineered Hinges
Every Le Specs RX frame is finished with German OBE hinges, offering the smoothest of movements. Each hinge is carefully screwed together with nylon-coated screws, which prevents the hinges from coming loose over time.
Screw-in Nose Pads
Each of our metal RX sunglasses are designed with screw-in PVC nose pads, which are easily replaced and adjusted to offer a bespoke comfortable fit.
With a focus on the finer details, each temple is three-dimensionally designed and contoured for a luxurious touch and comfortable fit.
Our flag-stripe icon is discreetly inlaid as a metal foil on each temple tip, making it distinctive, and subtly recognizable to the discerning customer.
