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.
Things that made me happy today.

We have at times, but every server change seems to lose that content. I can e-mail you some stuff if you want to message me your address.

I was thinking along the lines of this:

Good call. I've never used anything but the main time dial on mine, so simplicity is good.
Maybe the Grip treads or something like that.

An underappreciated pair

I might have these saved. This was back far enough, but it might be right after we switched servers

I would have expected these to be Frogskins LX

Welcome. I really look forward to seeing what you can customize.

Okay, that's pretty cool. Didn't the Sideways have a few inner designs like that.

I thought it was already pretty hard when you were collecting last time. But I suppose it's just a linear progression of continually getting more difficult. It's never really a good time to source out older things.

A decent start, for sure

Mine showed up in the normal sized container

I did. Just take it slow. Easy to go off course and end up on the surface layer

My Carbon Primes were like that. I was torn, but I eventually cut the sides so I could tape it up later, keeping the sticker.

Looks sort of Matrix-y

I only remember the Four coming in the goldenrod box.

They look nice. How do they fit.

Love that Jade

Nice. I saw that they had just gone out of stock, but I may have to get it when it returns. I have so much of this, but need a proper place to set it up.

Did the Sub Zero's have the black boxes (I assume you mean the B&W photo wrap on black). There's the Water Jacket and OTT which had the full color stickers, but still in the same era. Also the Leather Wrap/Suede Straight Jackets had their own image. The FMJ Moon had a semi-reflective label.

We would normally expect them a few weeks after the wholesaler websites upload the images, but with covid. Who knows.

Because all Oakleys are polarized, and scratch resistant, and have a lifetime warranty.

Nice, I had to store mine away. The plastic was turning amber :(
