To start the party, Warby Parker employees hosted the "Biggest Smallest Parade Ever" in Manhattan. I hear it was awesome - you can check out some of the fun surprises here. At the event were David Gilboa, Neil Blumenthal, and Jeffrey Raider - three of the company's founders.
Side note - I met Jeff last November at the McComb's Marketing Conference. He was rocking the Movember stache, naturally...

But onto the exciting stuff... WP is launching a new collection today to celebrate its five year anniversary, and my favorite thing about it? The monocle, of course!
|Pop Art Monocle!|
In the parade photo above, you can see David Gilboa wearing the new Fillmore, Neil Blumenthal in the Huxley, and I believe that Jeff is in his usual glasses, though the frames seem reminiscent of the Roosevelt, without the lighter bottom half on the frame. You can check out the entire collection on the prescription eyeglasses page!
So, congrats to Warby Parker on its five years of success! I'm loving your new collection and I have no doubt that others will too. Cheers!
