Maybe you’ve noticed that the wearing of Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses has reached plague proportions. If you haven’t noticed, or maybe you don’t even know what the hell Rayban Wayfarers are, then step outside and find the nearest bunch of hipster kids. See how they’re all wearing the same sun glasses? They’re Wayfarers.
They are in fact so popular that they now have their own safety symbol. In the interest of transparency, I’m bound to disclose that this is actually a sign that I designed myself while doing the research for the recent safety glasses sign symbol collection that I posted.
One of the safety glasses signs that I came across was just so close to looking like a pair of Ray Ban Wayfarers, that I couldn’t help but give it a few little tweaks. (There was also one that looked amazingly similar to Buddy Holly and his glasses, but that’s another story)
So anyway, I apologise in advance to all the hipsters out there, but there is just so many of you that I feel the public need to be aware that you (and your glasses) are now an epidemic.
