Here at Online Glasses Review, it goes without saying that we think Warby Parker is the best online brand of affordable and stylish glasses. As our #1 rated retailer, it’s clear they’re onto something. The popularity of their glasses have exploded since the company launched, and they’ve opened several brick and mortar stores around the country.
To help you choose between the latest and greatest, we decided to pick our favorite frame each month in both mens and womens styles.
Men September 2019
Go back to school in style this month with the rounded rectangular lenses of this wire frame. It’s stainless steel construction is light, comfortable, and easy to wear. The Wilcox, like all Warby Parker metal frames, comes with adjustable nosepads for a secure, non-slip fit. OGR Tip: These frames work best with thinner lenses. If you have a strong prescription, consider getting a high-index lens, which are 20% thinner.
