Tastemaker: Dave Gilboa

The Warby Parker co-founder and SD native shares his go-to essentials



Published:

Age: 35
Neighborhood: New York City by way of Solana Beach
Current job: Co-founder and co-CEO of Warby Parker, the stylish spectacle company that recently opened its first local outpost in Westfield UTC.
Personal style: Two parts Solana Beach, one part New York. 
Fashion philosophy: Proper fit, comfort, and style are the three key ingredients. Always wear a great pair of glasses. And always have a good costume up your sleeve.

His Favorite Things:

This frame's classic shape is easy to wear; while the ocean-blue hue offers a smart pop of color. "Wilder" glasses in squall blue fade,  $95, Warby Parker Westfield UTC

Aloha Greens offer an easy way to get a full serving of fruits and vegetables on the go. Just add water to get an instant all-natural green juice. $40 for 15 packages.

I often find unexpected catalysts for my best ideas. Having a notebook handy lets me jot them down quickly. Public Supply also gives 25 percent of its profits to high-need classrooms. $12

Swedish shoe designer Axel Arigato makes clean, unique designs. I wear these everywhere. Clean 90 sneaker, $205.

I like workout gear that looks good and functions well without being overengineered. Ten Thousand foundation shirt, $45, and shorts, $55.

Harry's razors and blades are beautifully designed and reasonably priced. Winston shaving set, $25, blades, $2 each.

Biking is the fastest mode of transportation around NYC and this is my steed. I ride it everywhere. Vanmoof 3.7 bicycle, $949.

British brand Hard Graft makes high-quality, highly functional accessories for modern workers. I carry my MacBook Air in this bag as I run from meeting to meeting. Flat pack, $344-$359.

These noise-cancelling headphones are compact and great for travel. Worth the price! QuietComfort 20 headphones, $300, Bose Fashion Valley
