Presenting the ultra-stylish and drool-worthy Ormsby by Warby Parker!
For every frame of mind
Sunglasses help us see the world clearly when the brightness of the sun cannot be adjusted to our liking.
Warby Parker’s Ormsby is a classic, good-looking frame which will look right at home when you are enjoying your time at the beach, meeting friends over brunch or just making your own travel plans.
Ormsby features a classic keyhole bridge and according to Warby Parker, they are a nod to vintage beach style. The best part? It is available in three variants so that you can sport whichever shade reflects your mood for the day.
- Whiskey Tortoise with Bottle Green lenses
This is a beautiful pair with the just the right amount of green to complement any outfit.
- Crystal Aqua with Blue Mirror lenses
When the sun finally warms the streets or when cold winds start blowing, put on these shades to greet the clear skies or snowy landscape!
- English Oak with Classic Blue lenses
This pair is a sublime way to ease into whichever season awaits you outside your closed door. Not too experimental but not too plain either, this is your saviour on days when you are unsure whether you really crave some attention or you don’t want the focus to be on you.
A state-of-the-art pair of sunglasses needs advanced materials and techniques to transform you and your wardrobe into a piece of art. And guess what, Ormsby fits the bill perfectly. Designed and crafted in-house by Warby Parker, this frame is made from their signature material – custom cellulose acetate. This helps your pair of sunnies retain their form, lustre, color and pattern over time. The temple arms have sturdy barrel hinges with akulon-coated screws for durability. Furthermore, individual frame parts are smoothened with Japanese-imported wood chips. Once assembled, the frame is hand polished with a German wax compound.
When it comes to lenses, you get nothing less than premium polycarbonate that are polarised and highly resistant to impact and scratch. You also get the option to choose between prescription and non-prescription lenses for a better experience when looking through the tinted glass. And yes, they do offer 100% UV protection!
Finding the perfect fit means looking at the measurements on the inside of the temple arms. The Ormsby frame measures 51mm – 22mm – 145mm. But this technique doesn’t really help you to figure out which shade may suit you. The alternative? Warby Parker’s home-try on program!
