Who is Warby Parker you ask?

He was plucked out of the journals of Jack Kerouac!

We’ve always been inspired by the master wordsmith and pop culture icon, Mr. Jack Kerouac. Two of his earliest characters, recently uncovered in his personal journals, bore the names Zagg Parker and Warby Pepper. We took the best from each and made it our name.

We hope your new glasses will provide all the style you need to travel your road with class, and their price will leave you with some extra cash to use on your journey.

Warby Parker also partners with a non-profit organization that  helps public school teachers across America crowdsource materials for their classrooms. Think books here, and the ones the teachers want!

and then, of course, the wonderful illustration above.

I think I know where my next pair of glasses is coming from.
