Warby Parker... Continued

Tuesday, November 23, 2010
I got my Warby Parker home try-on glasses last night. Let's test them out together.. I probably should have brushed my hair first. Nah.. I'm going back to bed.
The Miles glasses:  My cheeks are too big for these babies.
The Finn glasses:  My cheeks are still too big.
The Madyson glasses:  My whole face is too big.
The Cailin glasses:  Too small for me. Check out the husb getting ready to rock out.
The Harper glasses:  The best out of the bunch but still feels a bit tight.
These are the glasses I have right now.

Verdict:  Warby Parker glasses are for people with slimmer faces and probably not for Asians because the temples (the pieces that keep your glasses on your ears) are also too long for me. But if you have a regular face, I say try them out.

  2. I love the last one that you are wearing and the one before that. I think I have to look into that. Maybe it will be ok for my type of face. I tend to wear glasses only at night, my eyes are so bad I wear contacts during the day, I never let anyone see me with glass:)

  6. aw you look good in all of them, but i actually like the ones in the last pic the best. i always have trouble buying sunglasses because they are always too tight on my temples, and i have like zero nose bridge so they have to sit on my cheeks...not attractive :P

  9. Dumb racist glasses. I really love the ones you have now, though! The Harpers are cute too!

  10. Aww. :( I was going to get a pair because my glasses broke but I have a wider face than you and if you think they're too snug they'll definitely be too snug for me. Anyway, I love your expressions in these pictures xD

  11. in my experince (and i hav a lot, since i'm practicly blind) the glasses are always altered to your face (based on how close together your eyes are, how high your ears are, how long the ear thingies are suppostu be, ect.) but i guess since it's an internet firm they migth not do these things?

  14. I actually think that the Miles pair are really cute on you!

  15. I was shopping online for frames several months ago and thought I had found a real bargain. I called my optemitrist though and discovered that the bargain glasses were actually in a child's size. I hadn't realized that glasses came in different sizes. Knowing that bit of info might help.

  16. I think you should go with the ones you have now. I'm having eye problems right now and probably going to have to get glasses...yuck... I don't like them for the reason your having: big cheeks! :)LOL!

  19. So cool that you tested them out and thank you for sharing your thoughts on them. I saw them on Daily Candy and kept thinking it was unreal cause they're so cost effective. Bummer that most of them didn't work out.

  20. The ones you've currently got are my fave.

    And I totally agree that Asian faces are a bit wider - the BF always laughs at me for looking for large sunglasses but I need to find ones that fit my face! If they're too small, not only do they look weird but they hurt! Ah, the BF with a regular-sized head just doesn't get it ... ;o)

  21. Thanks for the detailed review! I've been eyeing some Warby Parker's for my next pair of glasses, but I definitely have Asianface so I'd have the same problems as you. Oh well.

  22. The Warby is the best!

  24. The Harper glasses look really cute. I'm not just saying that because my baby's name is Harper. They are really cute. Gosh, you already have a million comments. Do you really read all of these?

  25. My face is just the opposite.It's narrow & everytime my specs look wider, I need to choose frames carefully. Hahahahahaha!

  26. I like the Miles, but your expression in the Cailin's is priceless!

  27. I just did this too! Can't decide between zagg and huxley...i like finn on you!

    ReplyDelete
  28. i love the first ones! they might touch my cheek bones though. just like you mentioned that they're not so suitable for Asians. chubby cheeks issue :p

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like the ones you have now best, but I think that the Harpers look great as well! I love love love the folks at Warby Parker--they've been so great, helping me find the right frames. I finally settled on the Finns and I'm happy with them. Good luck!

  30. fun photo shoot :) i do like the harper ones.

    ReplyDelete
  31. your current pair is the best one so i think that you should look for new glasses in that shape but the harper glasses are fine too. you don't have to rush it, i wear glasses myself i think it's important and sometimes difficult to pick the right one so good luck finding yours

  33. did you select the face size when you tried them on? I had to shop for a wide face size. Also, when you look at the glasses, they suggest which face sizes work best.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ooh thanks for the review. I agree they are a bit small for Asian faces. They also seem to have a lot of glare :/

    Imo, you are too good looking for these glasses.

  35. I don't know if you can do this with plastic frames, but I've taken my glasses (metal frame) to a local optometrist and they were able to bend the ear piece so they don't slide down so much.

    I like the Harper frames.

  36. I really liked your post, really funny !

  37. Hi! I'm glad to see someone trying the warby parker glasses. I also recently heard about them and was thinking of trying them. I like the Harper on you and I think they would make a great 2nd pair, the curviness of the frame looks nice on you. The Cailin would also work if you got the right size.

    I think you may have chosen the wrong sizes. I have been researching online and some of the measurements you need include pupillary distance, frame and nosepiece width and temple length. Now I'm not an expert just thought I'd share. I also know that the temples can be adjusted to fit. I have worn glasses for more than 15 yrs and most times when I get a new pair, the temples have to be slightly adjusted, even with plastic frames. Just make sure to be careful, don't break anything! Good luck on your search!

  38. The ones you have now look great. Trying on glasses can get overwhelming.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh man I love trying on glasses, I have around 6 pairs. >< But it can be so frustrating when you find a nice pair and they just don't fit your face right. I agree the bottom ones suited you best :)

  42. You should try some of the boy ones if those are two small.
    They have some great ones, that still look good on girls.
