Those New Year’s Glasses Have Been Adapted to the Next Decade Pretty Easily


When 2008 turned to 2009, the Seattle-based maker of those year-shaped glasses that people wear on New Year’s Eve decided to end his glorious run, partly because business was down and partly because of “the aesthetic challenges of making a pair of glasses for 2010.” But it turns out that 2010 won’t be much of a challenge at all, really. One fix being used by other companies is simply making the ‘1’ super wide. It doesn’t look as good as a ‘0,’ but we don’t think looking good is a primary concern for people who wear these anyway.
