Every two years I get some new glasses. In 2012 I tried the Warby Parker Home Try-On program. Of the 5 frames I tried, I rejected all of them and ended buying a pair from our local eyeglass place. In 2014 I stuck with the local place, but in 2016 I went full on Warby Parker and after trying two separate sets of 5 glasses each chose my current frames.
So here we go again. For 2018 I’m going to try Warby Parker again and my first 5 frame choices arrived yesterday. I choose 3 that are sort of the same shape as the current frames and two that are more round. And while the current blue frames have received rave reviews from practically everyone who notices them, all 5 of these are not blue (although the Hardy in Striped Pacific looks that way on the website.) We really just have a couple of greys, a couple of browns and a green.
Of the five, I kind of like the Seymour in Sage, but wish it was more green. My next choice would be the Lyle in English Oak, but I’m not sold on that color. Donna sort of likes Baker in Striped Sassafras, but I think they are too dark. So you know what this means, let’s mail ’em back and pick another five.
