warby parker fall 2013

If you’re into style, then you’re likely a “fall is the best time of the year” type of person. Autumn is the best season for dressing up and the weather allows the perfect opportunity to layer on all of the great clothes you have spent the entire summer thinking about. Though it’s not all fun and games, fall is when you have to hit the books and get back down to work. With the cool weather, football games and changing of the season, fall is all about adding in that extra sweater, the jacket and all of the other important aesthetic accoutrements. Gone are the days of the minimalist summer where all you need is a tee shirt and shorts.

Warby Parker’s collection is the perfect compliment for the transition from summer to fall. The cult New York-based eye-wear has just released a 1960s inspired range of glasses that loves of classic style are sure to get behind. What could literally be more fitting for the time when we all need to get back to the books. These are exactly the types of frames that I want to pair with my tweed, shetland sweaters, waxed canvas jackets, duck boots and the rest of my fall closet so I can get back down to work and look good doing it.

My selections from the fall 2013 Warby Parker collection:

ripley-optical-oak-barrel-top

Ripley in Oak Barrel.

 

ames-sun-whiskey-tortoise-top

Ames sunglasses in Whiskey Tortoise.

 

duckworth-optical-oak-barrel-top

Duckworth in Oak Barrel.

    I’ve been stuck for glasses brands, I’m in the market but I suspect these will be slightly over budget. Worth a look for inspiration at least.

    Can’t really fault the styles, or for that matter the prices, except to say, you know, China.

    I have 2 pair of Warby Parker frames, and I will most certainly be buying more. The styles are great, and you can’t beat the price. Yes, they’re made in China, but what isn’t? I don’t see a problem. Most Luxotica brands are made in China as well, yet they cost a fortune.

    Shuron frames aren’t made in China. They’re made in America. And they’re affordable. Not as many options though….

    Coming from an insider in the eyewear industry (not affiliated with WP), I will say that WP’s lenses are cut, inserted into the frames, and inspected in the US…
