Ainsworth in Walnut Tortoise
Downing in Walnut Tortoise
Mallory in Gimlet Tortoise
P.S. The bus is still here. It's parked in The Gulch until December 9th & then it's gone. Go now! (But if you can't go now, they have a showroom at Imogene + Willie.)
I'm trying to decide between # 1 & # 2: Ainsworth & Downing. I don't hate # 3, but they take up a little too much of my face. I've completely taken # 4 out of the running. They're way too Sally Jessy Goes To Brooklyn. All signs point to Ainsworth. My Warby Parker helper on the bus voted Ainsworth & then Warby Parker weighed in on the twitter & voted for Ainsworth, too.
I haven't bought them yet, but I plan to in the next few days. This FSA money isn't going to spend itself! So if you've got an opinion on which frames I should buy, weigh in fast.
This is not a sponsored post. Warby Parker has no idea who I am, nor did they ask me to write about them. I just think they're a great company with a great product. This will be my second pair of Warby Parker glasses. My last pair is 2+ years old & still going strong, which is a lot more than I can say about my previous SEE glasses. Also, Warby Parker glasses are just $95. You can't beat that. And! For every pair of glasses they sell, they donate a pair to someone in need.
I'll report back once I get my glasses. I'm 99.9% sure I'm getting the Ainsworth. I think. To be continued...
EDITED TO ADD: I bought the Ainsworth, aka # 1. And I love them!

P.P.S. I partnered with Warby Parker in 2014 to launch their Concentric Collection.
