I have to ask: Who buys the monocle?
Warby Parker: Some people buy it for costumes or a joke, but it’s been interesting, we’ve heard from a number of chefs that buy them because they need help reading recipes in the kitchen. They won’t want to wear reading glasses because they fog up so they just clip it to their chef uniform.  You can put a reading prescription in it. Some people put their distance prescription. It’s been great to see people use them for a functional purpose. You can actually go to [the restaurant] Eleven Madison Park and if you say that you’ve forgotten your glasses, they’ll bring out an oak tray with all of our frames, including a monocle.
