• About Séamus

    Originally from Northern Ireland, I came to England seventeen years ago. My first proper job was in an opticians and I have never left the industry since (apart from one month at a bespoke shirt makers). I have sixteen years experience of the eyewear industry and have a passion for handmade spectacles and sunglasses with an eye on innovation in design.

    A new service at McClintock, Custom made clip on sunglasses! We can make a clip to fit any frame you bring to us or you can request it at the time of ordering your new frames. They can even be fitted to rimless frames.

    There are many options available. A plain rim or an embossed one can both come in a range of painted colours or for an extra cost, you can have them gold or rhodium plated. Lenses come in three different colours in both standard plastic or polycarbonate. We can supply them as polarised for an extra charge and also Zeiss lenses are available if you want premium lenses.

    They come in their own small hard case and prices start from £125 for a standard clip and lenses. Delivery takes about two weeks and we do have to send your frames to the manufacturer so that the shape can be copied accurately.

    I have had a couple made to try them out and I think they are great. If you are interested, drop us a line or call into the store.
