Warby Parker co-founder tries to duplicate success with shaving

Warby Parker did it for eyeglasses, offering style at a discount. Now one of the co-founders of the trendy retailer is tackling something almost every guy needs: razors. Warby Parker co-founder Jeff Raider and his longtime friend Andy Katz-Mayfield have built Harry’s, a startup selling more than just blades and handles, but what they are calling “shaving experiences.”

My wife the optician really likes Warby Parker, which sells trendy, high-quality eyeglasses and offers really great customer service without charging their customers through the teeth. So it’s great to see Jeff Raider try to duplicate his success with shaving products.

    Say what you will, these fuckers have their fingers firmly only the pulse of the Hipster market. Can artisanal toe-nail trimmers be far behind?

      No, artisanal nail clippers were far ahead. These have been around for at least six years, probably more: http://www.amazon.com/Dovo-504006-Deluxe-Nail-Clipper/dp/B003SP9BGS

      I’ve had a look at the Warby Parker frames. I don’t see what makes them “hipster” as opposed to merely “slightly less-expensive.”

    Whatever. I like Schick Extreme 3 razors. 84¢ each when I buy 64 at a time from Walmart. But, then I am not a hipster. Just ask my daughter.
