Style focus – Metal frames

Timelessly stylish, metal spectacle frames will never go out of fashion.

Tending to be lighter and more flexible they are great if you want a simple look which makes less of a statement than bolder, acetate options.

But picking your favourite pair is unlikely to be an easy task as there is a surprising variety of shapes, looks and colours to choose from.

So which ones to choose? Read on to find out about some of our favourite metal frames currently in stock at Patrick & Menzies.


No one is more famous for wearing round metal frames than the legendary John Lennon. This pair offers a contemporary twist on the classic style, allowing you to Imagine you are the Beatles frontman if you so wish! The rounded shaping would particularly suit someone with a softly curving face.




Chunkier than your average pair of metal frames, these Jasper Conran specs are super cool. The matt silver colouring gives them an added edge.


NIKON – NC1021 – 301

For a serious look that shows you mean business these frames from Nikon are the perfect pair. In classic black with a bar running across the top of the lenses, they are a great example of how simplicity is anything but boring.

We love the cat eye shaping of these glasses from Vogue. While not overly bold, the thin, black frame will really draw attention to your eyes.



WOLF EYEWEAR – 2058 – C84

WOLF EYEWEAR - 2058 - C84
Although metal frames tend to be simpler it doesn’t mean they have to scrimp on style as this beautiful pair from Wolf Eyewear shows. The almost rose gold colouring of the metal sits perfectly with the muted pinks and blues of the patterned sides. As ever you can trust Wolf Eyewear to create glasses that are a little bit different from the rest.
