I ate a chili pepper and when I woke up, this site was here.

Around Summer 2002, I was spending money on nothing but bills for school and who knows what. My brother had just gotten Scars, to which my impression was "that's really dumb to spend all that money on sunglasses", but then I tried them on and really noticed the difference in quality. I'd never seen a lens be so clear before. My comment was Everything looks like the Autolevel function in Photoshop. What a nerd I am sometimes. At that point the Splice came out and my brother wished he had waited and gotten that instead. So one day when I was at a cookout playing hooky from work, the one shred of champagne taste that I had kicked in and I decided to get a pair

After that, I got a pair of minutes, but they were too girly and didn't look like the online picture, so I gave those to my sister and then got a pair of leather Mars, since they were so odd. That lead to a pair of 24k X-Metal XX's, and a Time Bomb. Then on and on and on. Once the site took off, it was all over. I think I had a dozen or so when that happened.

Might be a cool addition. A pseudo-stand for glasses if nothing else.

They're still in regular production, so you can grab them off oakley's site:

and if you're on a budget, the Prism Violet and Prism Tungsten are both 50% off.

Very cool. Latter Eyeshade, and early Blades overlapped, so it would make sense that the bags would also coincide. Glad everything is back together now.

The bag is from the Eyeshade era (the latter portion, as cotton bags came first). The nosepiece is from a Blade/RazorBlade, since early M Frames would have a point in the center, and Zeros/SubZeros would be more rounded instead of that flatter front size.

As for the box, it might be a riser that goes within a box, which would hold things like the bag and other accessories so the glasses can be displays but all the other stuff is tucked away. I know the re-released Frogs in 2009 did it that way, but intact original boxes are hard to come by, so firsthand knowledge is scarce. There isn't much in the way of official photos of the packing materials, and the past few decades have provided ample opportunity for original contents to get mixed up quite a bit.

Huge. Looks on par with the Marvels HC that came out

Definitely a mix between the original Blade and the Stretchline Razorblade.

Welcome. I usually have a summer pair that I swap out yearly, but I've been stuck on my Mercenary's for a few years now. Probably time I look into something else.

Still interested in trying the Re:Subzero, but not sure if I'll pull the trigger. I guess I like the original style more at this point.
