I was at the optician to buy prescription sunglasses. Bi-focal sunglasses. They had a lot of stylish wrap-around glasses with made-up Italian names I'd never heard of. The optician looked at my prescription and mentioned that a wrap-around probably wouldn't be satisfactory because of the nature of my correction(s), but they would be getting in a shipment of Ray-Ban frames in a week or two.
At the time I was wearing my favorite t-shirt - brown XXL from Chuck Schmidt, with a race image of Fausto Coppi in the 1949 TdF, just radiating immaculate coolness in his Ray-Ban Aviators. He won the race, establishing Bausch & Lomb's Ray-Bans as being hyper-cool, and they became a style choice of the 1950s.
I was cool. I said, "No problem, I'll wait for the Ray-Bans to come in". Yes! Ray-Bans!
Late last night Mimbres Man sent me this picture from his past. Ray-Bans still rule. (And the phone numbers are NOT still valid.)
