We like the warm-weather minimalism concept so much we made a few bags for employees and thought, why not share with customers, too?
If you’re in the New York, Boston, Hollywood, or Dallas area, stop by one of our stores tomorrow and Sunday (July 12-13) and pick up a free Keys Wallet Sunglasses bag for your essential loafing supplies. It’s the opposite of a carry-all.
Just ask a retail associate. As long as supplies last, the bag is all yours.
The perfect pair of aviators is like the perfect leather jacket, the perfect pair of jeans, the perfect scent: a staple for the ages. (Unisex, too.)
That’s one reason we paired up with Into The Gloss to introduce two new frames: one pair of sunglasses and one optical, each constructed from premium Japanese titanium in Jet Silver or Polished Gold.
If you’re not familiar, allow us to introduce you to your new favorite beauty destination. Into The Gloss takes everything you know about beauty, flips it, and reverses it. And although beauty and eyewear don’t normally fall into the same bucket…well, why shouldn’t they? The seed of our collaboration came from the notion that we could combine Into The Gloss’s approach to beauty with Warby Parker’s approach to glasses, and maybe wind up with a beautiful baby…
A year’s worth of collective brainstorming went into the design of the two collaboration pairs—because building the ideal aviator, it turns out, is an exercise in Goldilocks logic: they can’t be too big, they can’t be too small, they can’t be too wide and they can’t be too narrow. The teardrop silhouette can’t be too droopy. Every measurement must be just right.
The results are as wearable as they are distinctive.
A desk can tell you a lot about a person, and these are the stories of our favorites. (Desks, that is. And also people.)

Hot leads/sales posters
“Our team’s goal this quarter was to support the launch of new products in stores and online. To reflect our mission, we named our team ‘the Sales team.’ We put up a folder for leads and tossed up a few business-y looking graphs (with fake data). The cat? I just think the cat is cute.”
“I use this when I’m testing new features in our custom-built Point of Sale system. Next quarter, we’ll be adding a lot of great features that our employees and customers have been asking for. This baby is going to get a lot of use.”
“I wear the Rowan frame in Graphite Fog. I was prescribed readers at my last eye exam here. People kid me for needing them, but they make working at a computer all day much more tolerable on the eyes. Also, I really like pushing them down my nose when making an important point.”
The only thing that’s missing in our little assemblage above: sparklers.
Those of you living in the great state of New York will be able to guess why we’re going without this year: they’re illegal! (And we are a law-abiding company.*) But there’s hope. For the third year, in a row, state legislation has been proposed to legalize small hand-held sparklers—which is a bipartisan issue we can support 100%.
Regardless of your political affiliation or stance on recreational explosives, we wish you a wonderful 4th of July.
