Classic Specs is an online glasses company that provides a wide variety of affordable, durable, vintage and retro inspired frames. The company keeps prices reasonable for its customers by designing all frames in-house and working directly with manufacturers.
The frames offered by Classic Specs are made with premium, hypoallergenic cellulose acetate, which is sourced from a family-owned company in Italy that was the first to create faux tortoise shell.
For prescription lenses, customers are able to select from the following options:
It is common in the online glasses industry to offer free shipping once a certain purchase threshold has been met. Classic Specs notably offers free standard and return shipping on all of its orders.
What sets Classic Specs apart from other online eyeglasses competitors is its full refund policy. If a customer is not completely satisfied with their glasses, they can exchange or receive a full refund for glasses within 30 days. Other online glasses companies may only offer store credit, partial refunds, or require the customer to pay for return shipping.
Although Classic Specs does not take insurance, customers may use their HSA or FSA to purchase their prescription glasses through Classic Specs.
All Classic Spec’s frames and prescription lenses are covered by a one-year scratch-free warranty. Cracks not caused by rough handling and peeling coats are lens defects that are typically covered by the warranty. Stripped screws, broken nose pad posts, broken or loose hinges, and dislodged jewels or logos are frame defects that are typically covered.
Classic Specs will repair or replace the glasses free of charge as long as they are returned within one year of purchase date. Customers simply need to contact customer support to see if their defect qualifies for warranty and to get a free shipping label.
Although the Classic Spec’s pricing may seem slightly more expensive than other sites, all lenses include anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. These included coatings with Classic Specs are often additional costs for lenses with other online eyeglasses competitors.
Although Classic Specs offers free standard shipping, it does not have an option for expedited shipping. It is common in the industry to have a processing time of five to seven days in addition to the shipping time. For this reason, other competitors offer expedited shipping for customers requiring their glasses as soon as possible.
Other online glasses competitors offer a virtual try on feature where customers are able to virtually try on glasses by either uploading a picture of themselves or enabling their webcam. Classic Specs does not have a virtual try on feature.
