It's "spec"tacular. The Warby Parky x Tyler Oakley glasses collab is a "must get" for glasses lovers and I'm talking about both reading glasses and sunnies. The venerable glasses brand has partnered with the YouTuber, author, and online personality for a limited edition capsule collection. What's in the Warby Parker x Tyler Oakley collection? We're glad you asked.
The unisex collection is available as of Tuesday, Nov. 29 and is a mix of mostly black reading glasses and shades that are basically an update to several previously existing and best-selling frames. Oakley visited the brand's Soho flagship and selected the Stockton and Wilder reading frames as faves, as well as the Downing sunglasses. He next worked with the company's designers to add his personal touches and signature flourishes to these existing silhouettes. They're essentially classics with a fresh spin.
Oakley stated in a press release that "I've been wearing glasses since elementary school and I finally get to design frames that I've always wanted to wear." As a fan of WP, due to the fact that it offers "affordable high-quality eyewear," Oakley is clearly stoked to express himself via this collab.
Each pair of glasses, which start at $95, includes a limited edition case, in addition to one of three custom, black and white lens cloths expressly created for this collection. There's a windowpane check version, a chalk stripe variant, and one with polka dots.
These are not just any lens cloths, either. Sure, they will wipe away smudges, fingerprints, dust, and any other dirt. But they were inspired by menswear patterns and can double as snazzy pocket squares. Who doesn't love a #Multitasker?
The Warby Parker x Tyler Oakley collab was born via an exchange of tweets. Seriously.
Oakley dropped 140 characters of love for the brand a few years back and a conversation ensued. Now look at 'em. They're collaborating, yo!
You can nab the frames at Warby stores and the site. These two-tones would look good on anyone.
This collab also continues the tradition of being able to passively do good while being fully fashionable. For every pair sold, Warby Parker provides an additional pair to someone who needs 'em.
Shop 'em while they're still shoppable, glasses-o-philes.
