From denim to dresses to menswear, we're seeing a trend among startups changing the game of traditional retail therapy with straight-to-your-doorstep styling services. To spare fashionable four-eyes from the headaches of IRL spectacles shopping (first world problems, right?), LA-based luxe eyewear e-tailer David Kind is simplifying the experience with their try-it-at-home service.
Catering to time-pressed (or click-happy) shoppers, the site offers an easy three-step process. Simply fill out your style profile and upload a few snaps, share your contact deets and voilá: a box of six stylish glasses—handpicked by your personal specs expert—arrives at your door. As far as the merch goes, the brand offers men's and women's frames ethically made in Japan and Italy with Trivex/high index HD digital lenses (sounds pretty hi-tech), priced at just $295 and up. Thank the glasses gods, indeed.
Into it? Give it a try online here.
