Scout: Warby Parker

We all know what can happen when a couple of college buddies get together and brainstorm business ideas..... Google, Facebook, Microsoft ring a bell?  So, I shouldn't have been surprised when I heard about Warby Parker; an online purveyor of eyeglasses described as "vintage-inspired, with a fashion forward twist".  Tired of high-priced, lack-luster retail options, these Wharton friends conspired to offer eyeglasses for the style-conscious set at a price of only $95 including lenses!  And, realizing that shopping for glasses online isn't the easiest proposition; these guys offer at-home try on of up to 5 pairs free of charge; free shipping; free returns; and this handy "virtual try-on" (go ahead and laugh, it's equal parts entertainment and help).  
Finally, if that wasn't good enough, they donate a pair to someone in need for every pair sold.  Yes, yes, yes & yes!
