Help Needed: Warby Parker Home Try-On


Alternate title: I don’t know what looks good on my own face. (I know, I know. The joke writes itself)

Alternate alternate title: Embracing My Inner Hipster


Have you heard of Warby Parker? It’s an online glasses retailer with super cute, affordable frames. There were two cool things that immediately stuck me about Warby Parker.


First, for every pair of glasses someone buys that donate a pair to someone in need. Second, they offer a ‘Home Try-On’ service where you can pick 5 frames and they’ll send them to you for free to try on and choose your favorite.





My lovely fur-child Lois has decided my current 7 year-old Walmart frames are her favorite toy, so they now look like this:


Yikes. Time for new glasses.

Enter Warby Parker.



I received me five pairs for the home try-on yesterday and need help deciding which ones to pick.

Option 1 – Zagg


Option 2 – Roosevelt roosevelt

Option 3 – Finn


Option 4 – Huxley


Option 5– Colton


So which ones should I pick?

I desperately need your help! I have no idea which pair is the most flattering on me. I like them all, but have a favorite. I’m curious to see what everyone else thinks.


1. Zagg

2. Roosevelt

3. Finn

4. Huxley

5. Colton

Please comment or send me an email (or a carrier pigeon, that would be awesome) with your favorite. Happy Thanksgiving!

    There is no question that Finn is best.
    The sweep of Finn’s slightly upward curving top echoes the unique and lovely shape of your own lips.
    This resonance between eyeglasses and wearer creates a harmony that is absent in the sterner shapes of the other pairs.
