Warby Parker Glasses, Part Deux


Ainsworth in Walnut Tortoise


Downing in Walnut Tortoise


Mallory in Gimlet Tortoise

I bought my first pair of Warby Parker glasses in 2010.  The Zagg has served me well, but it's time for an update.  I'm really into round frames.  The Warby Parker Class Trip bus has been parked in Nashville, so I went & tried on some new frames over the weekend.


P.S. The bus is still here.  It's parked in The Gulch until December 9th & then it's gone.  Go now!  (But if you can't go now, they have a showroom at Imogene + Willie.)


I'm trying to decide between # 1 & # 2:  Ainsworth & Downing.  I don't hate # 3, but they take up a little too much of my face.  I've completely taken # 4 out of the running.  They're way too Sally Jessy Goes To Brooklyn.  All signs point to Ainsworth.  My Warby Parker helper on the bus voted Ainsworth & then Warby Parker weighed in on the twitter & voted for Ainsworth, too.

I haven't bought them yet, but I plan to in the next few days.  This FSA money isn't going to spend itself!  So if you've got an opinion on which frames I should buy, weigh in fast.

This is not a sponsored post.  Warby Parker has no idea who I am, nor did they ask me to write about them.  I just think they're a great company with a great product.  This will be my second pair of Warby Parker glasses.  My last pair is 2+ years old & still going strong, which is a lot more than I can say about my previous SEE glasses.  Also, Warby Parker glasses are just $95.  You can't beat that.  And!  For every pair of glasses they sell, they donate a pair to someone in need.

I'll report back once I get my glasses.  I'm 99.9% sure I'm getting the Ainsworth.  I think.  To be continued...

EDITED TO ADD:  I bought the Ainsworth, aka # 1.  And I love them!

Alexis -- too late, I went with Ainsworth. I did like Downing though, just not as much for every day wear.
