Spex Pistols

A little bit
about us

Spex Pistols can be found on a little cobbled lane, rumoured to be Dundee’s smallest street.

Open the door and you’ll find us...Richard, Hazel, Sooz, Eve, Lucy R, India, Lucy L, Ryan, Eva, Holly and Kara. Richard is the brains behind the operation with over 30 years experience in lens making.

He created Spex Pistols from a desire to curate a frame selection that differed from high street chains...and this partnered with a team ethos of providing ‘good old fashioned customer service’ has meant that we have customers visiting us from every continent of the world.

Johnston’s Lane in Dundee, where we live.

The Spex Pistols team is made up of the best people around. Collectively, they know all there is to know about glasses and lenses. And on top of that, they’re a pretty interesting bunch. We have an archaeologist, a ukulele player, a nurse and the designer of the World’s first glasses made from coffee grounds.

Don’t worry though, the Spex Pistols experience isn’t just reserved for our shop customers. We aim to give you top customer service right here on too. Just like in our shop you can purchase the best frames and top quality affordable lenses. The only thing you can’t get from us is your eye test.

We also have a passion for vintage frames and their preservation. We believe that good frames should live for as long as possible. That’s why we offer a repair service on ALL frames which saves our customers time, heartache and of course money.

Over the years we’ve become known for more than just spex. Our shop is full of curiosities - filled with vintage stoneware jars, cameras, record players and hifis. The good news is, we’ve gathered together all of our vintage favourites and have made them available to buy, right here. You can also take a little more Spex Pistols home with you...we now have ‘Spex Pistols’ branded sweatshirts, aprons, badges and tote bags too.
