I need a new pair of eyeglasses soon, preferably affordable (not more than $300), stylish (I wear thick rimmed black plastic glasses now, but I would really a prefer a pair mad of something unusual like wood, or aluminum). I looked at urban spectacles, but they dont list prices, and I have a feeling they will be out of my price range.

Any suggestions for where I should buy them from?

Not sure if you're into the retro '50's look, but take a browse at: www.shuron.com
Specifically: RONSIR WOOD GRAIN COLLECTION

You can buy the frames separately and have an optician fit you with the proper Rx. Most shops frown on this practice as that is how they make their profit. Hugh mark ups on designer frames.

The Shuron people are great to talk to over the phone for product questions. They are a full service lab and can fill your Rx.

If you don't mind pretending you spent more than you did get some for $10 or so at http://www.zennioptical.com/ .

zennioptical.com - very inexpensive, so you can buy multiple pairs if you feel like it. warbyparker.com - Not quite as cheap as Zenni, but still pretty cheap, and you can order 5 pairs of frames to try on at home before you decide.

First, watch this. I buy glasses as infrequently as possible, myself, but then again I'm kind of anti-fashion. I do buy them from a local optical shop.
