Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would know that the eyewear industry is slowly being taken over by Warby Parker, whose purpose was to create designer quality frames at a fraction of the price. Obviously, the world liked their idea because they have blown up in the past year. It’s hard to not think of them when you think of eyewear. In fact, I happen to have a pair myself and I love them!
Now with an idea that great and successful, it was only a matter of time before someone else got a hang of the idea and made it uniquely theirs. Enter Vint & York. Same basic premise but specializing in vintage (1920’s) inspired eyewear! And given many peoples current infatuation with vintage, I think this is a great idea. I’ve pictured a few of my favorites above, but they also have some great women’s frames!
Unfortunately, I don’t have my own pair yet (its planned for the future) so I can’t speak from personal experience, but I feel confident that they will be a high quality product. They also have a Frame Trial program where they send you 5 frames to try on at home for a week to make sure you make the right choice and that you love your vintage inspired eyewear as much as they do. I’m expecting to see great things from them (no pun intended) in the near future. To check them out or to get your free Frame Trial, head on over to VintandYork.com!
