We have a couple of ground rules at Warby Parker.*

Treat customers the way we’d like to be treated.

They don’t call it the golden rule for nothing. Shopping for glasses should be fun, easy, and not ridiculously expensive.

Create an environment where employees can think big, have fun, and do good.

Sometimes people say to us: “If you love your job so much, why don’t you marry it?” (Answer: we would if we could.)

Get out there.

No company is an island. Serving the community is in our DNA—from distributing a pair of frames for every pair sold to sponsoring local Little League teams (Go Giants! Go Skyscrapers!). We also work with Verité to ensure that our factories have fair working conditions and happy employees.

Green is good.

Warby Parker is one of the only carbon-neutral eyewear brands in the world.

Where does the name “Warby Parker” come from?

The stork. (Just kidding.)

In May 2009, our co-founder Dave was wandering around the New York Public Library when he stumbled into an exhibition about Jack Kerouac.

The exhibit included some of Kerouac’s manuscripts, drafts, and journals.

In one of the journals, Dave noticed two characters with interesting names: Warby Pepper and Zagg Parker. We combined the two and came up with Warby Parker.
