Alternate Fit: what is it?

This season marks the launch of a new comfortable Le Specs 'Alternate Fit' (alt fit) range.

We have identified that our customer wants a better fit, inclusivity to the eyewear market and to never miss out on a trend again. An elevated fit, in 15 new styles

What’s the difference to your regular fit and how does it work?

The alt fit range has been specially designed for a diversity of face shapes, suiting those with low nose-bridges, high cheekbones and wider faces.

How did we do this? In short…

We designed the nose pads to be longer, so that the frames sit further away from cheeks. In addition to this, the nose bridge is narrower, to make the frames feel secure and stable on face. We then reduced the frame curvature, preventing cheek indentations and curved the temples, for comfort and fit. Plus, we added new plate hardware with premium aesthetic.

This allows for maximum comfort and functionality for the wearer.

Le Specs Creative Director and Designer Hamish Tame explains “This season is all about bolder looks, and the introduction of more comprehensive fits. As our business grows internationally, we have focused on the comfort and fit for all face shapes and sizes across both sunglasses and eyeglasses.”

With over 400 stockists of le specs, we have designed our glasses with two distinct details to the standard sized frames so you can easily spot the difference. The new alt fit styles will be available across all Le Specs collections moving forward.
