The glasses they make are stylish, affordable, and they give back to the community — what’s not to like? Now the eyewear label has come out with something new. This week Warby Parker launched the Windsor collection, featuring their first clip-on glasses. To be honest, we’ve always pictured clip-on glasses to be accessories for nerds. We can’t remember the last time we saw somebody using clip-on glasses, but Warby Parker has changed our mind. “We’ve been wanting to expand our collections to include clip-ons for a while now, but wanted to make sure they were introduced in the right way,” says David Gilboa, Warby Parker’s co-founder and co-CEO. “Our new Windsor clip-ons offer a classic silhouette, but the premium leather-wrapped stainless steel injects modern design intelligence. They are both functional and attractive.”Each pair of the clip-on glasses is wrapped in premium leather and features polarized lenses. Plus, they look really cool. “It’s about being able to modify your favorite frame in a matter of seconds,” says Gilboa. “Clip-ons are the easiest way to look stylish and go back and forth between sun and optical styles.”Now, thanks to the Warby Parker clip-on sunglasses, we don’t have to switch back and forth between two pairs of glasses — optical lenses and sunglasses. We can just carry around one pair.  Warby Parker, you’ve done it again and we can’t wait to see what you guys come up with next.For more information, visit warbyparker.com.

Province to Study Supreme Court Ruling

first_imgThe Nova Scotia government will review a Supreme Court of Canada ruling, released today, Dec. 7, in two New Brunswick cases involving three aboriginal men who claimed the right to harvest trees for their own domestic use. The country’s top court ruled that the men, who had been charged under the New Brunswick Crown Lands and Forests Act, have an aboriginal right to harvest trees for domestic use on provincial Crown lands traditionally harvested by the bands involved. But it said this is a communal right that requires the authority of the aboriginal community, and is subject to regulation. It restricts the harvest to domestic use and prohibits the sale, barter or trade of the wood. “This is a New Brunswick case, so we will be reviewing the decision and determine the potential implications for Nova Scotia,” said David Morse, Minister of Natural Resources. “We are fortunate to have the Made in Nova Scotia negotiations process to address treaty and aboriginal rights issues.” The process, which involves the Mi’kmaq, Nova Scotia and the federal government, began with the signing of the Umbrella Agreement in 2002. This will lead to full negotiations. Forestry is one of the topics that will be covered. Nova Scotia was one of several intervenors in the case, which involved three New Brunswick men — two Maliseet from Woodstock and a Mi’kmaq from the Pabineau Reserve. The 36-page decision was written by Mr. Justice Michel Bastarache of New Brunswick.last_img read more
