Perhaps Lux is trying to save money by only coating to 1.5 microns.
They may have assumed we'd not notice, being taken as we must be with Prizm technology.
(PLEASE return our legacy tints!)

I'm warming to these: the socks and 'bombs are welcome, and offset the peculiar midline.

A functional esthetic, I suppose, but no one's going to mistake it for a thing of beauty.
Who do we have to elect to get "etching optional" lens choice?

Oakley collectors are truly blessed with People like Dann and this most Awsome website and it's database. I have looked high and low for something anywhere remotely similar for Ray Ban collectors to no avail. -

Hear,Hear!
Thanks to Dann and his tireless (he might say "sleepless") efforts, we here have a unique, and magnificent amount of information at our fingertips...
The "other" brands have ZERO community.

ZOMBIE THREAD!!

I'm hoping attitudes have mellowed since the Inquisitions of '07 and the demise of Oakley.
Certainly, one can be forgiven if smitten by sunglasses before the miraculous acension of JJ and his empire we all aspire to...

In 1965, I was a painfully prepubescent lad, whose eyes would often get me "in trouble" (yes, I'm old).
I bought my first pair of sunglasses to preclude such embarrassments, Sea and Ski Girl/Boy Watchers.
They were an attempt to hide wandering eyes in the age before 3 micron translucent iridium coatings.
They worked, but the resultant headaches generated did not.

Still have 'em.
Flight training requires long hours in the sun, and vision is supercritical. 1968 saw my purchase of RayBan Wayfarers with approved G15 lenses.

Still have 'em.
Throughout the '70s and 80's, I wore a succession of RayBan Aviator Outdoorsman, most of which, I still have.

Once I discovered the M Frame for my cycling affliction, the Aviators sat, forevermore, in the drawer.
One O lead to another into the 21st century.
64 79 Oakleys later, and with the overthrow by Lux, I find my eyes wandering once again...
Clayton Franklin is a brand, hand crafted in Japan. Their metalwork is stunning with quality that Lux can only seem to ignore.
Clayton Franklin 501, all original, a distinct pleasure to look at and through.

Welcome.
If you meander around here, you may find a "Want to buy" thread, but it is seldom used. (Primarily, this is a resource/research site).
I suggest keeping watch on EBay or some such, as SW does sometimes appear there.
If your frames are still viable, aftermarket lenses (BOO!) are available, as are custom cuts from OEM Oakley donor stock (recommended). OEM Wire earsock kits still appear from resellers, but are becoming pricey...
