Dorian Sunglasses Review for Men and Women
Warby Parker is a socially conscious brand that advocates giving back to the community with its “Buy a Pair, Give a Pair” campaign. They make fashionable eyewear at an affordable price and have just unveiled their Dorian collection. Warby Parker’s Dorian series takes inspiration from “Crossbar Edit” featuring 70s-inspired brow bars with an undeniable vintage dexterity. With a trapezoidal lens, it evokes visions of Jackie O. and has been worn by countless icons. Olivia Palermo has made a mark in this distinctive style by wearing a similar shaped eyewear at various public events.
Armed with a geometrical silhouette, Dorian unleashes the dimensions of innovative creativity. It takes inspiration from the iconic “Pilot” style of eyewear and offers you a go-getter’s spirit from daylight to nightfall. Dorian is an avant-garde interpretation of the classic aviator shape with its square brow and modern proportions.
An unprecedented framework of the series sans nose bridge makes it stand out from the crowd. The single bar at the top acts as a nose bridge. Its focus is on the crest while balancing the weight of the lenses. Built-in nose pads offer tremendous support and ease. With an increased surface, the curved pads gently adhere to your nose. Taller lenses offer viewing comfort. While angular glasses go well with oval, triangular, and round faces, the series comes in a medium fit, making it perfect for almost all face shapes. Dorian is a wise choice for eyeglass wearers who love to make a statement.
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 (50 mm), bridge (17 mm), and temple length (140 mm). If you already have a pair that you like, you can compare it to those measurements.
- Frame width 135 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 50 mm: The horizontal diameter of one lens.
- Bridge 17 mm: The width of the bridge section.
- Temple length 140 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
- Prescription lenses are made from polycarbonate, the most impact-resistant material for sunglasses; non-prescription lenses are made from CR-39 for maximum clarity and color.
- Includes scratch-resistant lenses that block 100% of UV rays
Dorian Design Details
Slim, striking, and effortlessly cool. Dorian’s bold single brow bar complements angular features and instantly upstages every look. The brow bar runs parallel to your eyebrows, thus defining them. With a curvaceous bottom rim, the cheekbones seem uplifted. Sleek temple arms complement the precise angles of the frame. Sculptural end pieces add instant personality to the eyeglasses’ classic shape. They merge smoothly with the temple arms while embellishing the corners of your eyes. With fine design details, Dorian exudes attitude without sacrificing everyday wearability.
Custom cellulose acetate, a plant-based, and biodegradable material, is used to make these frames. It also preserves the style, colors, and patterns of Dorian over time. Acetate frames are flexible, durable, hypoallergenic, and environmentally friendly. Akulon-coated screws and barrel hinges enhance the durability of these frames. They are made from CR-39, which halves the weight of these glasses, making them easy to carry. These premium polarized lenses are also made with CR-39 to ensure maximum color intensity and clarity. Polycarbonate, an impact-resistant material, keeps these glasses from shattering and breaking when subjected to various external factors. Manufactured with anti-reflective, anti-scratch coatings, Dorian enhances vision and decreases eye strain. These high-quality lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays, thus protecting the eyes.
Dorian Color Options and Price
Our love for clean, modern frames inspires the designs of these Dorian sunglasses. They come in two awe-inspiring colors of Ebony Fog Eclipse and Root Beer. Available at a non-designer price tag of $95, these gender-neutral sunnies are definitely something to fall in love with.
Ebony Fog Eclipse
The shade derives its name from the dark tropical heartwood of the ebony tree and is dense like hardwood. It has an intense black color with undertones of brown and olive. With the silken texture of fog, it achieves a polished and rich luster. A white-colored rim circles the frame’s face, thus giving it the effect of an eclipse. Well-tinted Black lenses add a mysterious charm to the sunglasses. Add a profound sense of style to your wardrobe with Dorian in Ebony Fog Eclipse.
Root Beer is brewed from dried sassafras roots. It shows burnt orange and deep amber tones. Specks of tortoiseshells mar the warm shades of root beer on the frame. Well-tinted green lenses complement the earthy hues of root beer. Keep a pair of Dorian in Root Beer in your desk drawer to add polish to your everyday outfits.
