Warby Parker & Makeshift Society

Our friends from Warby Parker stopped by recently on their cross country class trip. If you’re unfamiliar with who they are, Warby Parker are a super cool, super affordable eyeglass company (prescription, non-prescription, and sunglasses) out of NYC. They set off on their whirlwind tour of the country back in October to bring their showroom to the masses. Their flagship store just opened in Manhattan this past weekend. We are loving the classic library motif of the shop and how fun is it that they have a photo booth in store? We hope they open one up here on the West coast soon! They will be stationed in San Francisco for a little while longer, so if your in the Bay Area I’d suggest getting over to visit their yellow school bus ASAP!


When they popped into Makeshift Society last week, they brought with them an array of their glasses. Rena tried on a few and they snapped some pictures. You can view the rest of the photos and their post on Makeshift here.

Last night, they came back to hold a small event with Byliner. Drinks and conversation were plenty and a lot of fun was had. Going off of the library theme of their store and school bus interior, professors library, they brought cool props for photo booth style shots (think tweed jackets, pipes, and fedoras!) We were glad to have them and can not wait to get a pair, or two, of their chic glasses.
