There was a point in time when men’s eyeglasses were downright ugly!
Back then, designers were only concerned with how the glasses functioned. Their goal was to help you see better, not look better.
Thankfully, eyewear brands started giving more thought to how glasses look. Over the years, they’ve placed a greater emphasis on design, comfort, and fit.
Glasses have become much more than the apparatus to improve your vision. They have become an accessory to express your personal style.
Today, there is a wide selection of beautifully designed glasses for guys. You can choose everything from retro styles to cutting-edge, modern styles.
One of the brands at the forefront of contemporary eyewear design is Warby Parker.
Warby Parker Glasses for Guys
In 2010, Warby Parker started selling eyeglasses online. Their low-cost, direct-to-consumer business model, disrupted the market and helped Warby Parker to grow into a powerhouse eyewear brand.
Guys gravitated toward the brand because they made shopping for glasses easy. Their focus on design and quality made them even more appealing.
If you’re in the market for new glasses, we recommend these good looking Warby Parker glasses for guys.
Warby Parker Durand (Whiskey Tortoise)
Warby Parker’s Durand frames, with their round lenses, roomy width, and Low Bridge Fit construction make a sharp first impression while keeping you comfortable.
The rich, deep whiskey tortoise color gives the glasses a modern, interesting look.
These glasses are made with Warby Parker’s signature material – cellulose acetate, a high-grade, durable, hypoallergenic plastic.
The frames will go well with any outfit and their classic styling will look good through any season and withstand changing fads.
Warby Parker Wilkie (Eastern Bluebird Fade)
With a sloped browline and rectangular lenses that flatter any face, the Wilkie frames are classics in the Warby Parker collection.
The frames are available in extra narrow, medium, and extra wide so you can choose a width that corresponds with your own face width.
In addition to Eastern Bluebird Fade, you can get the Willke frames in a variety of colors to express your personal style.
Warby Parker Morgan (Baltic Blue)
Celebrities such as Al Roker have made colorful glasses part of their signature look. However, many men shy away from colorful glasses and gravitate towards more conservative styles.
The Warby Parker Morgan frames give you the best of both worlds.
With their round lenses and graduated rivets, Warby Parker Morgan frames offer traditional styling with a striking baltic blue color. They are lightweight and comfortable. When you wear these glasses, be prepared to get plenty of compliments.
If your personal style is bold and fashion-forward, these glasses will help you to stand out in the crowd.
The Morgan frames will also elevate your simple outfits such as jeans and a white t-shirt.
The Morgan frames are available in narrow and medium and look good on men with square or heart-shaped faces.
Warby Parker Roosevelt (Jet Black Matte)
The Warby Parker Roosevelt frames in jet black matte are bold and noticeable. When you wear them, you will feel powerful, confident, and masculine.
Although the Warby Parker Roosevelt frames are big and sturdy, they don’t feel bulky or heavy on your face. The frames have a wide temple (or arm) for comfort and fit.
The lightly curved keyhole bridge gives the Roosevelt frames a sophisticated, vintage look.
Roosevelt frames are available in wide and extra-wide and work well on men with round or oval faces. These will give you the illusion of length in your face.
How to Buy Warby Parker Glasses for Guys
Warby Parker also has retail stores in several cities where you can get an eye exam, try on frames, and purchase your glasses.
