Eyewear has become so hip you’ll want frames even if you don’t have sight issues. We especially love the new styles we see emerging from Warby Parker. Its Fall 2014 collection features nine new shapes, three styles in crystal and two new hues (Striped Pacific and Petal Tortoise). The design staff also updated three hardworking acetate frames with titanium temples.
The result—a look you can call your own at a price that won’t make you cringe. All the frames are available for $95. At that price, you can build an eyeglass wardrobe to match your mood and the clothes you’ve got hanging in your closet.
As you know, The Manual is a big fan of Warby Parker. Here’s a little reminder why:
They let you try on frames at home for free. It works like this:
- Select five frames you’d like to try on. The company will ship them to you for free.
- You have five days to try them on and get reactions from friends.
- Send the samples back – return shipping is free.
- Purchase the ones you want at WarbyParker.com and they’ll ship them out.
We also have deep appreciation for companies who make it a priority to “pay it forward.” Warby Parker has a buy one give one philosophy. For every pair you buy, they’ll donate a pair to someone in need. So far they’ve given away more than a million pairs of glasses.
