I think it's quite obvious from my collection, but I've loved the Juliets for quite a while, but only recently have I given into my urges and purchased probably more then I will ever need. Oakley's are probably the only sunglasses I've ever spent more then $15 for, and I always look at other styles, but for some reason if it doesn't have the Oakley name, it just doesn't appeal to me. It might be their unique designs, but I've decided to collect quite a few Juliet colors :)

I also get others that strangely appeal to me, although with my flat face, only a few Oakley's really fit me well. I'm the only one of anyone I know that collects these, none of my friends understand so it's nice to have a website where i can talk to others about my addiction ^_^

Black microbags.

The most consistent product Oakley has made ;) (though the quality has gone down in recent years ^_^

Yeah, they're polished, though carbon ones would be pretty cool.

Here's my favorites from my collection. Can you take a wild guess what I'm a whore to? :)

Wow, I just noticed the option for Asian fit sunglasses today on the Oakley site. This is great! I'm gonna pick me up a pair of asian fit Splices and I'll tell you how they work out. I had to sell a previous pair of Splices I had because they didn't fit right, but I LOVED them. I'd like to try out a pair of Hatchets, but I'm thinking even if they fit my nose correctly, they'd still be too big on my face. I'll tell you what's different about the splices when I get them Bong, should help with your decision on the Half jackets.

One of the reasons I got into Oakley mainly was cos of their flashy styles ^_^ Even though a lot of people don't like it, the Fire lenses were what originally got me into Oakleys. Since then I've gotten the rubies, fire, 24k and ice lenses because I love the way they look. Nowadays, though i love some of the new styles, i don't like the color combinations. Oakley I think is at their best when they go out of the norm, such as the Splices, Romeos, Juliets, Over the Tops :)

I saw the new Romeo's the other day, and I liked them. I think they're a great improvement over the old Romeo's, although they still don't fit me. They're not quite as large as the Hatchets or Romeo's, but the lenses dig into my cheeks too much. It's a shame, i really wanted to grab a pair of these, despite the price hike on them. Style wise i think they're nice :)

My girlfriend hates that trailer, cos she loves the original too much and this just looks to creepy. It looks right up my alley though, i'll probably end up loving this a lot more then the original :)

Here's some of the Penny's from X2. I couldn't find any really good shots of the blinders on the Penny's, but here you go.












And of course the redesigned goggles.

I buy almost everything on ebay, better prices :) But I did buy my Oakley Ruby Penny's in the store, my only full priced purchase from Oakley, $400, ouch. I do tend to go to the store and try things on first though.

I like the way the Juliets are designed, it keeps any light from entering your field of view, but i guess that might just be me since my face isn't perfectly fitted to these lenses.

I have seen 2 sets of Fire Polarized lenses. One which was very yellowish and almost looked like 24k with "polarized" etched on the outside of the lens.
The second (newer i think) is a very dark orange and doesn't have polarized on the outside, but you can see it etched on the inside of the lens.

Dunno about yours but mine is just plastic. A hard plastic, but still just plastic. I doubt they'd actually make it out of titanium, and if so, it wouldn't just break from everyday use.

You know what.... it wouldn't surprise me at all if Factory Pilot was Lil Jon :) In fact... it's all making sense now...

By the way Factory Pilot, i like that new song of yours with Trick Daddy and Twista :)

I had those lenses for awhile, though have since sold them. I'd rather send my juliets in for real Oakley lenses for the $50. Those lenses are ok, they look nice in the dark, but they are much more transparent then regular rubies, especially in the sunlight. It's like putting the Ruby lenses from the A-Wires into the Juliet frame. polarization was nice, but it's not NEARLY as clear as Oakley's. So for the tradeoff of them being thinner, more transparent, and not as clear, i'd definently trade polarization for the real deal Lenses.

Hatchets are ok. I think lens shape is the only thing that compares to the Juliets at all. Otherwise, Juliets are the more superior sunglasses to me. Might be because it's made up of so many parts, making the Juliet have a cooler more "engineered" look to me. Hatchets just don't look to special to me.

Really? That must be a new rule, because I sent in my Ducati's last month and they put Rubies in mine, no problems. Seems strange to exclude that frame tho'

You're right, it does look more like the titanium/gold now that I look at it. Good, cos it wasn't as brown as i had hoped ^_^

Looks just like the standard prescription Light Blue lens they have, 66% light transmission, no mirror.

I guess the size of the Penny's actually would fit my face better, but my flat nose makes them sit too low on my face. The Juliets fit me ok, though they do sit on my cheeks a little bit. Larger nosebombs would fix that, but alas, only to be found in Japan :P None of the O matters except the Minute fit me. It's really the raked back curve of most Oakley's that don't fit me. Good for you guys, but bad for us flatter faced asians :)

Asian faces are not particularly well suited for most Oakleys ^_^

Expensive eh? That means this would require someone with lots of money and a love for Oakleys... Where's Monsterdog?? I bet he can fund our little conversion :):) J/k

All 3 for me still have the blue tint looking through the lenses. The purple tint I'm talking about is what it looks like from the outside, instead of the usual Red/gold look Ruby usually has, my new set has a Purple/red look to it.
