You’ve probably seen them around already, but just don’t know it yet. Warby Parker – a vintage-inspired, contemporarily twisted eyeglass company – is headquartered in NYC but distributes around the world and is growing increasingly popular for good reason. One of its key benefits, aside from its cool styles and amazing price point (each pair is $95 including prescription), is that Warby Parker donates one pair to someone in need per every pair sold. The name, Warby Parker, comes from two Jack Kerouac characters: Zagg Parker and Warby Pepper. Everything about this company is attractive and inspiring. Something to take advantage of: at home try-on service. You can order pairs to try on, free of charge, and they will be delivered right to you.
I recently purchased the “Bensen” in the whiskey tortoise color and I haven’t taken them off since! In the spring I will definitely be purchasing a lighter, more day-time pair as well.
