The Larkin Oakwood Brown by Warby Parker are glasses designed for larger faces that invoke boldness, are stylish, and built like a tank. The eyeframe is set off by beveled edges and thick temple arms and lens is made from a very impact resistant material called polycarbonate. The Larkin has 100% UV protection, coated twice with anti-reflective coating, and includes anti-scratch coating. The frame itself is cut from a single sheet of acetate to maintain color parity and is polished at least twice for (wait, really?!) ten days to ensure a lasting finish.
Street price is ($95). Now, while the price for this and all the other pairs of glasses that Warby Parker offers is impressive, the most awe-some aspect of getting these glasses is the good deed you’d have done from purchasing your glasses from Warby Parker. And that is:
For every pair sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need.
Do good. Look good. Feel good. That looks real good to me.
