Eyeglasses don’t exactly lend themselves to online shopping but don’t blame Contacts & Specs for trying. The Chicago eyewear shop, the latest to be suggested into the guide, carries one of the best selections of hip eye and sun glasses we’ve ever seen, with high-end labels from Europe and Japan. Considering that even in some major cities like LA this type of selection is hard to find, the shop is a fantastic resource whether you’re in Chicago or shopping online.
For online shoppers the store even offers a personalized service wherein you tell them what you’re looking for and send them a picture and they’ll Photoshop some glasses onto your face to give you an idea of what they’ll look like. Now that’s good online service!
