We love polls. Sometimes we poll our fellow employees about their tastes,
preferences, and musical milestones. Here’s where we share the results.

This week’s question: what is the first concert you saw?

We Made a Video

Guys! We made a video. For fun! And to preview our Fall 2014 collection!

Guys! We made a video. For fun! And to preview our Fall 2014 collection! And you can watch it right here.

It all started with Darius, who is the fine gentleman you see pictured above. Darius works in one of our retail stores. A member of the creative team spotted him in the store, got obsessed with his cool vibe, and asked him if he wanted to do a project. This is that project.

We filmed it over the course of a day, fueled by donuts and coffee. It combines a few things that are beloved by Warby Parker: naps, cake, mysteries, extreme sports, and really nice glasses.

In case you’re wondering, Darius performs all of his own stunts.

Introducing Fall 2014

Got a personality? Hi. These frames are for you.

Got a personality? Hi. These frames are for you.

We’re introducing nine new shapes—which means there’s a signature look for everyone in the room. For the bold, three clever styles in crystal. For the polished, three hardworking acetate frames with titanium temples. And for the business-minded, a handful of angular silhouettes.

Two new hues were also added to the mix: Striped Pacific and Petal Tortoise. The first is a streaked combination of seaworthy blues. The second is a painterly mix of soft pinks and earthy browns.

Take a look, shop the collection.

Huxley

Couldn’t you just watch this for hours? You shouldn’t, of course, but man, it’s tempting.

Huxley in Tennessee Whiskey is just as enthralling when it’s totally still.

We Spy: Bondi Blue

Nothing melancholy about this blue. Bondi Blue, seen here on the Roosevelt frame, has tons of spirit.

It’s a cheerful, puts-the-wind-back-in-your-sails kind of color—no matter where your mood is at.

Warby Parker x The Standard

What’s the best way to cap off a long summer? Well, a few relaxing days at The Standard certainly comes to mind—and, of course, a new pair of sunglasses wouldn’t hurt either.

What’s the best way to cap off a long summer? Well, a few relaxing days at The Standard certainly comes to mind—and, of course, a new pair of sunglasses wouldn’t hurt either.

To fully realize this dream scenario, we once again joined forces with The Standard to create the perfect pair of sunglasses. (Hey, the sun is still out.) Going with a summer classic, we refashioned our Winston sunglasses in Whiskey Tortoise Matte—a slick new finish created just for the collaboration.

Now it’s time to make those reservations. (And don’t forget to pack these.)
