Icelandic policeman wears same sunglasses for thirty years

Morgunblaðið spoke with Kristinsson who has been wearing the same Ray Ban's since 1988, for thirty years, that is. 

"My former brother-in-law, handball team coach Þórir Hergeirsson bought them for me in Oslo. He chose well, bought them on board the Icelandair plane from the air hostesses. They were very expensive, " says Kristinsson in today's Morgunblaðið paper.
