Recently I was in the market for a new pair of frames. While browsing various eyewear shops in Manila I realised there wasn’t much choice. Frames under Php 8,000 had poor styling, too much branding and were made of low quality materials. Frames above Php 14,000 had nice styles and much better build quality but I don’t want to pay for the brand name stuck on it. The worst part was that it was difficult to find wide frames that could fit my face. With no luck offline I decided to check out what was available online.
