Burke Eyeglasses Review for Men and Women
Made in the traditional square framework, Burke is classic in design. It resembles the ‘Bug-Eye’ design of eyewear that fits nicely on your face while highlighting your facial contours. The eyepiece’s timeless profile and understated proportions make it a style-favorite! You will elevate your fashion statement to the next dimension with Burke.
Sleek and slender, a low-fit keyhole bridge fits comfortably on your nose. Acetate nose pads are flexible enabling them to sit on the nose comfortably. While square spectacles suit round, triangular, and oval faces, the series comes in a medium fit that flatters every type of face. A timeless design integrated with a comfortable keyhole nose bridge enables Burke by Warby Parker to rule the optical rack.
Like most eyewear brands, measurements for Warby Parker glasses can be found on the inside of the temple arm. There you’ll find lens width (51 mm), bridge (19 mm), and temple length (145 mm). If you already have a pair that you like, you can compare it to those measurements.
- Frame width 137 mm: The horizontal diameter of the full frame width, and it’s the primary way we determine fit. (Note: You will not find this number on your glasses.)
- Lens width 51 mm: The horizontal diameter of one lens.
- Bridge 19 mm: The width of the bridge section.
- Temple length 145 mm: The length of the entire temple arm, from the front of the frame to the tip.
- Made from hand-polished cellulose acetate
- Akulon-coated screws for durability
Burke Design Details
Burke’s shape resembles the ‘Clubmaster’ eyewear style, owing to its straight browline and prominent angling at the top rim. It seamlessly blends with the soft angles at the bottom edge, thus enhancing your cheekbones. The edgy top is wider than the arched bottom, giving you a stronger jawline. With long and lean temple arms, the eyeglass’s conventional length extends to the back of the ears without slipping, lending it a retro-inspired design. Add a distinctly debonair grace to your outfit with the elegant charm of Burke.
The frames use custom cellulose acetate, which is a biodegradable, plant-based material. Acetate frames are not only environmentally friendly but also flexible, durable, and hypoallergenic. Acetate also helps Burke preserve its shape, radiance, vibrant hues, and patterns over time. Akulon-coated screws and barrel hinges provide extra durability to these frames. The glasses are hand-polished repeatedly with a polishing wheel to achieve a glossy finish. The acetate eyeglasses are lightweight and comfortable to wear all day, while you go about doing your daily activities.
Burke Color Options and Price
The stylish Burke is a step forward for good looks and comfort. These gender-neutral eyeglasses come in two brilliant colors, including Tennessee Whiskey and Black Matte Eclipse, and are affordable at $95.
This shade celebrates culture and tradition. Tennessee Whiskey showcases a broad spectrum of colors ranging from faded brown to deep amber. Warm amber and brown hues with freckled tortoiseshells cover the top part of the frame. It then effortlessly blends into a translucent crystal fade at the bottom. Accessorize your style with Burke in Tennessee Whiskey.
Black Matte Eclipse
Black is a shade that can transform your look from mid-century to contemporary to chic in an instant. A traditional matte coat covers the eyeglasses with a round white rim around the face of the frame. This is how this variant got its name. The achromatic tone gives you a bold look while adding a subtle flair to your persona. Make a statement without breaking your bank with Burke in Black Matte Eclipse.
Warby Parker is a socially conscious company that gives back with its “Buy a Pair, Give a Pair” program. The brand famously designs stylish, affordable eyewear and has released the Burke collection. The traditional square shape, inspired by 1950s fashion, generated immense buzz when Robert Downey Jr. wore a similar style for his red carpet look.
