I received a birthday gift of a pair of Moscots but they didn't feel like £300+ sunglasses.

I didn't know Moscot sunglasses were made in China or is it just 'Originals' models? Shame you have to pay your own return costs to NYC.

They've been made in China for years as far as I'm aware.

Has anyone ordered from visual-click.com?

Prices look much cheaper compared to RRP but maybe too good to be true?

Haven't heard of them, and I don't have any shared friends or followers on Facebook or Instagram (not necessarily a problem) but they seem to be a chain of opticians (https://www.visualoptica.es) that have branched out into selling online.

Pretty average reviews on Facebook though (lost of people waiting a long time for frames).

You couldn't have known as you received them as gifts but it's hidden somewhere on their webpage

I broke my Dita Creator limited edition sunnies and I can't source a new pair. Sold out everywhere.

Anyone suggest a similar shape of frame? Basically just a really over sized, black wayfarer style frame.

Have been looking at DITA Mastix as a possible but not 100%.

Currently wear JMM Yves as my opticals. Have a comedy large bonce. Can wear any big frame. Nothing can be too big Smiling

What kind of break? Some can be fixed.

Was going to suggest the Mastix.

Cutler and Gross 9101. Not sure if it will be big enough.

Oliver Goldsmith Lord or Finsbury.

Barton Perreira Domino or Goldfinger.

Ørgreen Riff.

Different price point and simpler designs but Cubitts do L and XL versions of some of their models now.

Gracias Andy. I've had a word with your man Seamus and its the hinge that's broken gone. Apparently it's some sort of proprietary / bespoke Dita hinge that he can't source a replacement for. I believe he has tried but like a fat bird on tinder he's now ghosting me Smiling

Jacques Marie Mage Yves could work too in the same spirit.

Is there anywhere in UK with the Mastix sun frames in stock? A cursory google hasn't been helpful.

There are 2 pairs of Dita creator on Vinted
- https://www.vinted.fr/hommes/accessoires/lunettes-de-soleil/1445566989-dita-creator-750eu
- https://www.vinted.fr/hommes/accessoires/lunettes-de-soleil/1768719617-lunettes-dita-creator
Worth pinging the owner, but I can also help to get them shipped to the UK if needed.
