I’ve been toying with the idea of getting some glasses for awhile now. I have 20/20 vision, so this would be more of a fashion thing, which honestly feels a bit weird to me still. However, I may take the pluge! I’m kinda-sorta in love with the Sinclair frames for Women over at Warby Parker. Thank GOD they allow you to try before you buy, otherwise I’d chicken out – true story. Anyone else out there own WP glasses? I’d love to hear your favorites!

    I legitly got glasses last year- not WP, but I love wearing them, specifically when I’m feeling a little lazy, they make me feel fancy (or um, fancier, it’s a little relative), or when I’m feeling reserved, they give me some space between me and other people. And I think they look cool :-)

    i’ve been in glasses since i was ten – thank god they finally became popular/fashionable, haha! i have the Webb and Preston ones…and I kinda want the Percey pair as well! about to get some new prescription sunnies from WP too…so I’d say YES – go for it!! :)

    oh yes, i also have WP, i have the beckett ones and i love them. i’ve been using glasses since i was 15 and since then i usually do a couple of years with glasses, then go back to contacts, the to glasses… these last ones i had to take the chance of being in ny for the holidays and tried them all! until i went for these ones! so go for it! they are absolutely awesome!

  4. I have that exact pair of Warby Parker’s (Sinclair in Burgundy Fade) and I LOVE them! I’m thinking of getting another pair later this year and I’m eyeing the Percey’s and the Filmore’s. I had been wearing contacts for a few years, so this was a pleasant change. So much more affordable than going to my eye doctor, and the frames are in styles I actually want to wear.

  5. As a follow up comment, I should say that the customer service at Warby Parker is the best. They make you feel like you’re their only customer. If you can’t choose, tweet them pics of yourself wearing the try-ons, and an actual person will tweet back a video with their recommendations.

    I technically have glasses for distances and driving at night but I don’t ever wear them (nor do I often drive at night, now that I have small children). My husband got some WP glasses awhile back and he loves them – they’re the Roosevelt style (for men, obviously). The customer service was, indeed, awesome, and they seem well made despite being way cheaper than lots of the models at the eye doctor.

    I have the WP Preston in Gimlet Tortoise and I get major compliments on them everywhere I go. I tell everyone about WP, even the cashiers at my local Whole Foods have bought them! I took the plunge and bought them without trying on first, and despite the frame not being typical for my face type. I really do get complimented on them every time I wear them…highly recommended!

    Man, my life as a pre-teen would have been soooo much happier if glasses were cool…

      mine too. I used to be a perfect little super-stylish hipster— in 1994, when NOTHING I did, was, or had was considered remotely “cool.” I was this odd pale little 60-pound middle schooler obsessed with computers, sci-fi, comic books, and horror movies; I painted, cannibalized my clothes to refashion pieces I thought worked better, was a giant bookworm, and wore ginormous bubblegum pink eyeglasses.

      I joke that I was uncool before uncool was cool.

    I love glasses! And I am by no means biased because I have worn glasses most of my life. :)
    I have a pair of Warby Parker’s Bensen glasses in Greystone…which I absolutely adore. I actually didn’t try on before I bought them; risky, but it worked out in the end!

    DO IT!!

    I Love my Warby’s and I want another pair. Times ten.

    i love my wp frames! I have a pair of WEBB frames and they are the perfect size for my face … not too big and not too small! WP is super fast with sending out trial frames and they make the return/order super easy! Highly recommend!

  12. Callie says:

    You should totally go for it! I have the Miles and I love them. Their try on program is awesome and so easy!

  13. Krissy says:

    Part of me misses having glasses now because like these, there are SO many cute ones around now! But in the same breath, man do I ever NOT miss them… I always found them uncomfortable on my eyes. Beauty is pain though, yes? :P

    Where can I buy these? And can you order them with a prescription?
