The best e-commerce experience I have ever had. Plus stylish frames & lenses for $99 a pair.
Warby Parker will ship you up to 5 pairs of glasses to try on, at no charge. Great way to sell this type of product to the consumer, especially those people like me who need to try things on multiple times before I feel I have found what I want.
I can't wait to make my first purchase from Warby Parker. The virtual try on feature is really progressive and quite accurate. They also give you the option to order numerous pairs of glasses and send the ones you don't like back - free of charge!
I didn't buy the frames I thought I would based on the gimmicky website, but after spending a week wearing 5 trial pairs I got just the right frames. Amazing to get all the opinions before I bought. Plus the quality (much better than my last two pairs of glasses) and price (half my post-insurance cost) are great. I am a very happy customer.
These guys have nailed the price-to-quality ratio. (I've ordered three ~$15 pairs from Zenni and they've never gotten the lenses right.) Cool designs, speedy turnaround, and all-around awesome customer service.
Check out their offices near Union Square, too, if you're in NYC.
the fact that they can do it for that price means that every other glasses shop is robbing us blind. pun intended.
luxxotica is a vertically integrated company that owns eyewear manufacturers, brand licenses (oliver peoples, ray ban, oakley, vogue), and retailers (sunglass hut, lenscrafters, etc.). no wonder they charge such high prices!
