Frame Inspiration | Brightlingsea Branch

At Patrick & Menzies we take pride in offering an exciting range of frames. 

From metal to acetate, and from bright and bold to sophisticated and understated, we work hard to make sure there is something to suit all styles and face shapes. 

With so many options to choose from it can be hard to know where to begin. So, we asked Jacqui Tye, optical assistant at our Brightlingsea branch, to pick her five favourite pairs of specs currently in stock as inspiration if you are thinking of investing in new frames. 

Jacqui has worked at the branch for five years and as a glasses wearer herself she knows just how important it is to pick frames that are not only comfortable but also make you feel fantastic. 

Read on to find out more about her top five picks.  

Tiffany 2168 in crystal grey 

Tiffany 2168 frames in crystal grey. Worn by Jacqui at Patrick and Menzies, Brightlingsea. “These Tiffany crystal grey frames are my own personal specs. I just love the Tiffany range. To me they offer timeless elegance. They are more understated than some of the Tiffany frames, with just a small amount of sparkle on the sides.”

Storm sunglasses 5607 

Storm sunglasses 5607 frames in crystal grey. Worn by Jacqui at Patrick and Menzies, Brightlingsea.


“What can I say about these Storm sunglasses? I love them! The coverage from the sun is great, plus they have the aviator style about them. Good sun-blockers and fashionable, too.” 





Lulu Guinness, L937 

Lulu Guinness, L937 5607


“I also own this pair of Lulu Guinness specs. I bought them as they are so fun and different. I like to have different looks, and they are so different from my Tiffany frames. I love the pop of pink over the eye. They also come in baby blue.” 




Wolf titanium 5023 

Wolf titanium 5023 frames. Worn by Jacqui at Patrick and Menzies, Brightlingsea.


“I’m always first in the line when new stock arrives, but I’ve not looked twice at these before. I really didn’t think they would be one of my favourites, until I tried them on! I love how light the frame is, and the beautiful pale pink almost disappears in certain lights. These are probably the lightest frames I’ve tried on.” 




Cameo Martha Frames 

Cameo Martha frames. Worn by Jacqui at Patrick and Menzies, Brightlingsea.


“I love the Cameo range, as it offers a wide range of different styles and shapes to suit almost anyone. This style is very very similar to the Ray-Ban club master style. Very on trend.”
