As if Warby Parker didn’t already have enough stunning eyewear to choose from, we are now being further spoilt for choice with the Warby Parker Tyler Oakley frames!
Tyler Oakley is a man that needs no introduction. But still, we will not forego the pleasure of introducing such a personality! The oh-so-fashionable YouTube sensation is also a New York Times bestselling author, a podcast personality, one of the leading voices of the LGBT community youth, a talk show host, and an avid eye-glass wearer! A person of many charms, just like his namesake collection.
The Warby Parker collection of six glasses – four reading and two sunglasses – give off Tyler’s trendy vibes and are a must-have for all eyeglass lovers!
Hues, pops and contrast
Seeing Tyler Oakley without his glasses is a rarity. It’s about time you adopted this habit too! This super stylish, unisex collection has three fantastic updates on previously existing and best-selling silhouettes – Wilder, Downing and Stockton. Want to know a secret? Each pair of frames come with a custom black and white lens cloth. Mind you, no ordinary lens cloths but ones which are inspired by traditional menswear patterns and Tyler’s own mood boards. These trendy cloths come in windowpane check, chalk stripe and polka dot motifs – perfect to double up as pocket squares!
Presenting the gender-neutral, essential wardrobe classics with a fresh spin –
These eyeglasses in Whiskey Tortoise and Squall Blue Fade have clear lines and squared-off lenses to make you look your effortless suave or chic nerd, whatever you want to be.
Thanks to the keyhole bridge of these frames with a discreet divot detail, Stockton glasses are your perfect pair when you want to be a nerd during the day and turn into a superhero at night (because they leave no ugly dents on your nose). The super cool Stockton is available in Whiskey Tortoise, Sea Green Crystal and Striped Beach.
These sunshine companions are great for every individual, every season, every occasion. Downing’s polished silhouette, signature round lenses and a keyhole bridge are the right dose of quirk and sophistication, in the right proportions. Available in Walnut Tortoise with classic gray lenses and Jet Black with green-grey lenses, it’s time to step out in the sun without the fear of damage to your sight or your nose!
Behind the scenes
The Oakley line of glasses is crafted from Warby Parker’s signature material – custom cellulose acetate, which is sourced from a family-run Italian factory.
The frames are cut from a single sheet of acetate to maintain color parity and the arms are fitted with Akulon-coated screws for enhanced durability. This creates a hip eyewear collection which is lightweight, sturdy and flexible. Oh! And did we mention that each of these specs are hand-polished for three days with a German wax compound before they grace your eyes with their lustrous beauty?
The Oakley eyeglass lenses are made with equal care and consideration – designed to sustain your everyday book-ventures or sunscapades! They offer 100% UV protection and have an anti-scratch and anti-reflective coating included.
When it comes to the lenses for your sunnies, they are available in both prescription and non-prescription versions. Resistant to scratches and everyday clumsiness, these premium polarized lenses are made with CR-39 for maximum clarity and color.
Survival of the fittest
Getting that picture-perfect pair is a huge deal! Imagine falling in love with frames so attractive, so dashing, only to realize they are not made for you. *heartbreak*
Worried about having your heart broken by a misfitting pair of sunglasses in this fashionable collection? Let us help you out. Each silhouette in this frame comes either as a narrow fit or medium fit. While Wilder comes in a medium fit of 52 – 17– 142mm, Stockton comes in a narrow-fit of 45– 21 – 140mm while Downing is available in a medium-fit of 48 – 21 – 140mm.
