I know it's a bit early to tell, but there are people who've reported their OPDs can't keep the Gascan in stock. I was wondering if any of you have had similar experiences with the Crosshair? I hope they do well, as I want Oakley to make more aviators. I'm very interested in what outrageous ideas they'll be able to apply to this classic style.

Also, does anyone know how Jim Jannard feels about the Warden and the Crosshair? It's known that he didn't like the OOs even though it sold well. I'm curious how he feels about a style that his biggest sunglass competitor popularized and could come back saying "The aviator is so classic even Oakley has swiped it!"

I've seen a few people wearing crosshairs around latley. I haven't seen anyone wearing wardens though. (In fact as a quick little run down, in the last 5 days I've seen people wearing; 1x Ducati Zero, 1x Ducati Valve, 1x Juliet/Ice, 2x Crosshair, 3x Minutes, 2x Twenties, 1x Frogskins, 1x Monster Doggle) ..i think that was about it ;)

That's been a busy week. Glad to hear the Crosshairs are getting out there early in the game.

I've yet to see any in either Gainesville or Miami. And I see lots of sunglasses. But I figure that most people who want aviators don't consider Oakley as an option.

Crosshair is selling okay- I've sold four-odd pairs- Gascan is selling rather slowly, although things picked up a little when we got the polished white a few days later.

I'm selling the crap out of them. Chrome is #1. I got the new gradient lens in today and it's pretty sweet too.

Just walking to and from work every day, and a little bit of walking around at lunchtime. Except for the ducati zeros which I saw someone wearing on their head at bluewater shopping centre.

My OPD do heavily stock up on everything - they have plenty of Gascans and most Crosshairs - though they have been selling pretty well. Ducati Crosshairs sold out the first day they were on sale.

I would think the Crosshairs should sell really well. I think they are a pretty universally sweet pair of eyewear for those that are out on the hunt for a "metal" frame.

I caught a guy trying on a pair recently and tried to steer him towards the chrome/VR28 black ... but he said they were too flashy for him. He did end up going for a pair, though.

Not only are they a nice pair, they're inexpensive as well.

Yeah, I agree. Even in Canadian dollars, they're still way cheaper than other Wires. And nicer too, in my opinion. Just about bought the Chrome/VR28 Black ones, but I had to go with Gascan. I'll get those Crosshairs one day. One day...

Would you believe this, I saw 3 different people in the space of 2 hours all wearing Silver/Fire square wires (the ones with the loud orange unobtanium!) I could hardly believe it myself!

Three of my friends have the same thing, Silver/Fire Square 2.0's. I always told them, at least one of them could've gotten something different. I mean, Oakley does offer Fire in more than one style. Geez.

I'd never seen anyone wearing that combo before today, and then BAM! three at once, what are the odds eh?

I know, I don't even think they're very nice. That orange Unobtanium needs to go.

i used to wear my Square Wire 2.0 Fire Polarized with the orange earsocks... the think with the orange earsocks, they disintegrate much faster than regular black ones. mine are black now...

oh no Bong i am looking forward to trying on a pair.
how dark were they?

Jun 3, 2005 4:52 AM
they weren't dark at all. my eyes can be easily seen through the lenses. it almost became clear near the bottom. maybe some guys may be able to pull off the gradient look, but they just look dumb when i had it on. LOL.
the moment i looked in the mirror i had to immediately take them off cos they looked ridiculous on me.

i've also tried the bottlecaps today... they would fit me if the lenses were a bit smaller/shallower.
