Happy Valentine's Day!

February 14 means love, longing, and of course, mountains of glucose.

We customized a few pounds of candy hearts for the day. (You should see our list of alternate messages; you can get pretty snide, pretty sexy, and pretty lovey-dovey with just 18 characters.) After lots of deliberation, we settled on a few favorite messages to get the romance going.

XO,

I SPY…

How about a little game of I SPY with the above photo and some of our Spring 2015 frames? Here goes!
We spy an elephant, an arrow with no bow
Some rats, a cricket, and a buffalo
Six pairs of glasses, an Austrian with a frown
And we spy three bridges (though one is upside …

Ninety-five dollars

Our new video is a homemade effort. Give it a watch.

Our new video is a homemade effort. We wrote and shot it in-house with a small crew of Warby employees and expert friends, including Alexander Chinnici (the coolest cinematographer in town, and with a face that belongs on a Roman coin) and Lyndsey Butler, an entrepreneur with mermaid hair who founded and designs Veda.

Tattoos

Give it a watch.

Introducing Warby Parker Press

Our office is a little laboratory of experimentation, and sometimes the experimentation leads to real-life projects.

Our office is a little laboratory of experimentation, and sometimes the experimentation leads to real-life projects. When a few members of our creative team started cranking out zines, we thought: maybe we could turn these into actual books? Like—small, clever, morsels that our customers could flip through when they stop by our stores. Yeah. That could be fun.

Fast forward a month and we’re publishing our first book, called Good Luck Omens for the Modern Era. Here’s the idea: human history is filled with superstition. Walking under a ladder, opening an umbrella indoors, crossing the path of a black cat…all of these things are supposed to signal bad luck in your future. But where are all the good omens? And why are the bad omens so old-fashioned?

Our book offers a NEW guide to omens, all updated specifically for the 21st century. We’ve also made them all good omens, because nobody needs bad luck these days. A few examples:

With this sucker in your back pocket, you’ll rack up more good fortune than you know what to do with.

A free copy of the book comes with every physical Warby Parker gift card ordered. Because nothing says “we love you” like “FREE GIFT WITH PURCHASE!”
