Warby Parker Made Sunglasses Just for Chicago

Nothing marks the arrival of warm weather quite like a new pair of shades—that you’ll inevitably leave on a table during some sunny mimosa brunch, but we won’t think that far ahead yet—and eyeglass favorite Warby Parker has made a pair just for Chicagoans.

The Topper, a circular-lensed frame with a ridged bottom and keyhole bridge, was released last summer as part of Warby Parker’s Corner Collection—and the crowds went wild. Now, they’re releasing it in striped olive as a pair of sunglasses, available only in Chicago.

The limited release marks a big moment for the brand: they’ve closed down their popular frame studio at 837 West Armitage Avenue, but they’ve opened up a permanent location just down the block at 851 West Armitage. The new spot boasts perks such as an on-site optometrist, a photo booth, books from independent publishers, chevron wood floors, and a free map of the best places to sit and read around the neighborhood by artist Jason Polan.

Jonesing for a pair of those Chicago-only sunglasses? They’re available only at 851 West Armitage, and only for a limited time, so stop by sooner rather than later to see if they flatter your face shape. Taking them for a test run at your favorite Lincoln Park brunch spot is strongly encouraged.
