The Eyes Have It

Accesorizing your look comes pretty easy for us guys. A tie or a belt and a watch generally suffices. But as more men become conscience of their appearance, more are starting to compliment their style with fashionable eyewear. The sources are limitless and now more than ever nitche eyewear boutiques are being replaced with easy to navigate online stores.

I recently hit the jackpot when I discovered Warby Parker. This newer company offers vintage inspired glasses and gives you the option of “try before you buy” and will send you up to five pair of frames to try on to see which you like with no obligation of purchace. If you choose to buy from them, they will give a pair to a less fortunate person. Most glasses are $95 and include a single vision prescription. Please patronize them at www.warbyparker.com.

Other online eyewear sources are www.zenni.com with very reasonable frames and www.coastal.com. I have purchased from both and place great confidence in them.

For those of you shopping in the St. Louis area, there are some fantastic options in your own back yard. SEE Eyewear at the St. Louis Galleria is among my favorites. I have purchaced from them in other cities and very happy to have them in the Lou. Eyewear Loft at 9644 Olive Blvd. and Eye Rock at 28 Maryland Plaza are equally great places to find spot on current trends and exceptional customer service.

Do not be afraid to let the Eyes have it. A stylish pair of glasses not only defines your look but gives you the perfect accessory to show off your best feature.
