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.)

Desk Job: Adam Szatrowski

A desk can tell you a lot about a person, and these are the stories of our favorites. (Desks, that is. And also people.)

“Those cheesy TV commercials from 90s actually worked on me—it just took me 10+ years to pick up the phone.”

“My boss likes to play Connect Four with candidates during interviews. I’ve wanted to sharpen my skills for a while, so I brought this over to my desk. I shall beat him one day soon.”

“We like to have fun in our office, but I keep this poster around to remind myself that sometimes I’ve got to hunker down and get things done. I used to have a crummier sign, but my friend Brett made me this updated version for my birthday.”

“It’s more fun than a chair, and it’s good for your posture. What’s not to like?”

“I got the Burke frame a few months ago. I used to wear Bensen in Whiskey Tortoise, but I prefer the lighter Sugar Maple—plus the keyhole bridge really sold me on them.”

There’s something in these numerical titles for everyone’s mathematical ability, even if English class was more your speed. (Especially if English class was more your speed.)
