The Launch

Sunglasses with Purpose

In a short amount of time, Warby Parker has garnered a reputation for both its handsome specs and a philanthropic one-for-one practice of donating a pair of prescription glasses to those in need for every pair purchased. And until recently, they've only offered traditional readers, but they've just introduced of a line of sunglasses definitely worth a look. Many of the designs reflect iconic frames from the past while modernizing lines and doing away with unnecessary details. Every element of the five styles (in varying shapes and color schemes) was considered carefully—from the Teflon-coated screws to the polarized lenses. They're the kind of attributes that companies usually charge a premium for, but Warby Parker is offering the shades for the same $95 as all their other glasses. They start shipping next week, but you can pre-order a pair on their website now.
