You: “Why, yes, they are. And you look great, too. Because now I can actually see you.”
Expect exchanges like this after you visit the first permanent Warby Parker store in DC, opening Saturday in Georgetown.
It’s a little library-ish in here. (Take a look.) Maybe it’s the desk lamps on the center table or the leather couch. But probably it’s the rows of books. On the top shelves, they’ve got books arranged by color. And on the lower shelves, they’ve got books for sale, like a Kingsley Amis novel, or a critical examination of Nas’s Illmatic.
If you need something to read them with, take your pick from scores of styles of frames. Just come armed with your prescription. They’ll help you find a pair to complement your face. You’ll have them in seven to 10 business days.
And if your eyes are just fine, thank you very much, look to their DC-exclusive, limited-edition Percey sunglasses. Or their line inspired by Grand Prix racing. Or frames that’ll have you looking like John Lennon or Roy Orbison.
In the eye area, anyway.
