Warby Parker's first-ever permanent brick-and-mortar store is finally complete, and the official launch date is set for this Saturday. The flagship mimics a classic library, accented with books, brass lamps, and rolling ladders. But unlike your nearest public branch, there's also an optometrist station, where eye exams only cost $50 a pop, seven days a week.
The shop offers all of Warby Parker's lines, including prescription glasses and sunglasses, as well as non-prescription frames. To get the full effect of what they'll look like on your face in various climates and locales, there's also an in-store photo booth, complete with different backgrounds that include a New York cityscape and something a little more tropical.
