Finding Waldo might have just gotten easier, depending on the seriousness of your prescription eyewear needs. Warby Parker, the greatest thing ever to happen in online mono-priced frames, has renamed their black "Monroe" specs in honor of the character when they noticed something awesome: the glasses looked very similar to the preferred specs of a certain striped-shirt wearing, hard-to-spot, cartoon man from childhoods everywhere.
