Warby Parker in Australia | One pair for me, one pair for…


Do you wear prescription glasses? Have you ever taken a moment to think about what you would do if you couldn’t afford to get them?

The first thing I noticed about today’s business chic gent was not his floppy-hair-boyish-charm but his glasses – stop, take a moment; do you see what I mean? Watch the enclosed episode of BusiChicTV if you have a moment to hear more about them.

For many of us, glasses are both a need but also an accessory that it pays to invest in. But what about if the frames we’ve been paying for are overpriced? Now take another look at Dan’s glasses; made by Warby Parker, these retro-inspired frames come in at $95USD PLUS Warby Parker donate a pair to someone in the developing world who needs them.

A collaboration between four close friends, Warby Parker was conceived as an alternative to the overpriced and bland eyewear available today. Prescription eyewear simply should not cost $300+. The industry is controlled by a few large companies that have kept prices artificially high, reaping huge profits from consumers who have no other options. By circumventing traditional channels and engaging with our customers directly through our website, Warby Parker is able to provide higher-quality, better looking prescription eyewear for under $100.

We meticulously crafted our first collection of 27 limited run styles, plus one monocle, using only the finest custom acetates and materials. The Warby Parker aesthetic is vintage-inspired, with a fashion forward twist – and every pair is custom fit with anti-reflective, polycarbonate prescription lenses.

Available exclusively through the Warby Parker website, our glasses retail for $95.

I’m disappointed to note that Warby Parker do not ship to Australia at present. However do check out their website if you want to get excited about scoring a pair of great glasses and making a difference for someone else at the same time for under $100USD which at some points throughout this year has also been under $100AUD…

Dan is also wearing a watch from swatch which are stocked in Australia.

  1. I just noticed how you mention concept like Warby Parker is not yet available in Australia, we recently just launched out site where you can purchase all frame( plus lenses) for $99.99 FREE shipping within Australia. You can use code: easter2010 for $10 off. =D

    • Hi Tram, thank you for the comment and discoun. However to be honest, what appeals to me about warby parker is that they’re both stylish plus have a charitable aspect through their work with developing countries.
