Cruising up Polk Street next to that weird Bird School of Music which I’ve never once seen open, I noticed a fresh-looking sign for marinelayer.com. Marine Layer is a San Francisco-based t-shirt company with an awesome logo, and some pretty sweet-looking shirts for dudes. I learned about it in quite possibly the most embarrassing place. To cut to the chase, I think that Golden Gate Bridge hammock thing is rad, and I’m psyched to learn the company has set up office in Russian Hill.

I’ve been wondering for weeks how the New Year’s Eve novelty sunglass industry would handle the year 2010. The position of the 1 digit in the number promised to botch the oh-so clever “two 0’s for two eyes” design — what ever did the revelers wear before this decade? A 1 placed over the bridge of the nose would no doubt look and feel awkward, not to mention meddle with the balance of the eyewear entirely, with a left-leaning 2 jutting off there on its own. So yesterday I headed to Walgreens (2120 Polk at Broadway), which reliably stocks the holiday kitsch, to see what those eccentric party sunglass designers had come up with.

Alas, the 2010 party shade’s 1 has been bloated to fit in with the other fat kids in the lineup, its serifs just hanging out above and below that “must-have” 0 shape. Looks like a penguin to me. I have to say, I’m kind of disappointed; I hope this underwhelming “solution” isn’t a sign of things to come for the new year.
