Warby Parker Launches Shades for Summer!

We here at the Troc have long shown our love for the eyeglass entrepreneurs over at Warby Parker here and here, so it's no surprise that we have all fallen head over heels for their new summer sunglasses collection! The classically cool styles all feature the same flat rate of $95 and can be fitted with prescription lenses.

Most styles will become available in late June, although the Griffin (below) is currently available. This particularly special pair includes a two-part charitable contribution - not only do they donate a pair of specs to someone in need (as with all Warby purchases), but $30 of each sale goes to Invisible Children, a group of inspiring young activists dedicated to documenting and sharing stories about children affected by war in central Africa.

If the sleek and smooth "Griffin" doesn't suit your style, rest assured that the other styles in the sun collection will stay true to their modern-meets-vintage aesthetic. Although I've been pining after a pair of Karen Walkers, I have to say I may skip those in favor of these fantastic tortoiseshell "Everett" shades once they're made available.
