Warby Barker: April Fools’ eyewear for dogs

It would be shortsighted for an eyeglasses company not to think of its four-legged customers. That’s why, on April 1, purveyors of hip eyewear Warby Parker unveiled their newest line of glasses: Warby Barker. Now, man’s best nearsighted friend can finally take advantage of low prices on classic frames.

Before you break out your credit card to order a pair for your little Spot or Mr. Tickles, note the launch date for this canine eyewear line. Warby Barker might be the cutest April Fools’ Day prank this year, putting hipster frames on stylish pooches in the video below. One lucky puppy even gets to don a dapper monocle.

If only it were a real product, pet parents could take the whole dogs-that-look-like-their-owners thing to the max. On the site, dog glasses are modeled after the company’s human line, with the only exception being the colors — instead of tortoise and lucite, they come in delectable dog treat shades, like “Gravy Burst” and “Dusty Bacon.”

If your dog is both stylish and myopic, Warby Barker is taking submissions of your canine glasses pictures at their blog.
