Got Glasses? Warby Parker Comes to Imogene + Willie

Posted by on Mon, Nov 5, 2012 at 8:30 AM

Just when you thought local denim design royalty Imogene + Willie couldn't get any cooler, they are now opening their doors to New York-based eyewear tastemakers Warby Parker.

Not familiar with Warby Parker? In addition to selling awesome, incredibly priced, vintage-inspired frames — i.e., "nerd glasses" — the company is like Tom's Shoes, operating on a "you buy one, we donate one" premise. That's right, you spend $95 on a pair of glasses and they donate a pair to someone in need. We just love philanthropic shopping!

In the past, you either had to guess which frames would look best on your face via the website, or you could take advantage of Warby Parker's home try-on option, which allows you to try five styles at home for free. But if you're one of those people who likes to try everything before you buy, you can now take advantage of the only Warby Parker outpost in the mid-south at our very own I+W.

Our friends at Imogene + Willie are throwing a little party this Thursday to welcome Warby Parker to the family. See you there?
