They're back. When we did the first edition of our sold-out driving sunglasses, we of course went with an all-black matte frame (because everything looks better in black). When it was time to reissue them, the eyewear gurus at Warby Parker helped us to craft a new Whiskey Tortoise version that's just as handsome as the original. Designed from the ground up for driving, and looking good while doing it, the limited edition Warby Parker x Uncrate Model X1 Sunglasses succeed on both fronts, if we do say so ourselves. Each pair is made with premium acetate and comes equipped with Zeiss Ri-Pel-coated lenses to give you extra protection on the road. The Model X1's curves were inspired by sports cars of the 1960's, and are just as timeless and functional as those beautiful machines. As usual with Warby Parker eyewear, for every pair of Uncrate edition frames purchased, a pair of glasses will be given to someone in need.
Most eye appointments include a fitting if you happen to need glasses. But no traditional session can come close to the customization offered with Mykita My Very Own Eyeglasses. Once you've picked out your frame, they take a 3D scan of your face, using that information to customize everything from the width and angle of the frame to the radius of the temples and position of the noce pads, all while guaranteeing ideal optical quality. Thanks to parametric design, the frames never appear out of proportion, and since you can choose your own colors for the frame, lenses, and hinges, you're guaranteed a set of specs that's truly one of a kind.
