Last night, NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg was spotted out in a pair of on-trend round frames that we see so often on Warby Parker-clad hipsters. Well, looks like the reps at Warby Parker have confirmed with Gothamist that the glasses are indeed their model called the "Plano." They have also confirmed that the glasses were prescriptionless. Say what? Mayor Bloomberg's has faux four-eyes?

We assume the mayor wore fake glasses to fit in with the rest of the cool young nerds at the conference for NYC's tech industry. So what's next for the soda-banning billionaire? An apartment in Williamsburg and a fixie?
