For the epony­mous owner of this West Lon­don out­let, be­spoke eye­wear is not so much a lux­ury as an im­per­a­tive. “In gen­eral, peo­ple just don’t like their glasses,” he says.“There are far too many com­pro­mises in­volved in se­lect­ing a frame. Here, we de­sign the frame of your choice to bal­ance on your head, and also take pho­tos of you and dis­creetly tweak the shape to work off your nat­u­ral fea­tures, such as your brow line.” The pair of spec­ta­cles the cus­tomer even­tu­ally walks away with, mean­while, is of high qual­ity thanks to the brand’s part­ner­ship with pre­ci­sion op­tics com­pany Zeiss, which pro­vides the lenses.

There’s no one-size-fits-all in the world of be­spoke, of course, and Davies has noted sub­tle dif­fer­ences in taste ac­cord­ing to re­gion. “The Asian mar­ket loves de­tail right now, in the front of the frame and on the hinges,” he says. “Sim­ple un­der­stated frames, which still dom­i­nate in Europe and Amer­ica, just don’t cut it in Sin­ga­pore.” td­tom­davies.com
