Cruising the internet
I have loved Oakley ever since my first pair of Eye Jackets. I could not explain my obsession with Oakley, and no one around me understood it. I started collecting them before I had a real source of income. It started with a pair of black Eye Jackets and it has not stopped. I bought my first pair of Juliets when I was 15, Plasma/Fire. I wore them inside, in the dark, it didnt matter. Last year someone stole them out of my car and it felt as bad as loosing a friend. My collection has grown from that single pair of Eye Jackets to multiple pairs of x metals:Romeo,Penny,Mars, and of course Juliet. M frames with 10 differant lenses, Half Jackets, Racing Jackets, OTT's and of course my Timebomb.

Holy crap Oak, where did you steal that?

Just might have to get a pair of these to see the new movie, they would go nicely with my Trons

The original square wires were HUGE, they fit great. I had a pair of the Black/black but gave them to a family member. They are probably twice the size of the square wire 2.0, which were tiny on me

What is it about Nov/Dec that makes me feel the need to spend tons of money? Not necessarily on gifts for others but just on whatever the hell I want?

Anyone ever notice when removing earstems from X-Metals that some may have 1 washer while others may have upwards of 6? Whats up with that?

I told my fiance that I want the One ring to rule them all, even if she had to travel to middle earth. I don't think she knew what the hell I was talking about unfortunately...
I will say this: if you are like me you really could care less what your wedding band looks like. For me, it was all about finding the perfect ring for her, one that she will be happy with forever because what it comes down to is my happiness is relative to her happiness

Well, I am at least glad to know that I am not the only one who this has happened to (and that I am not a freak haha), unfortunately Oakley quit making the Wardens a long time ago, so I doubt I'll ever be able to replace the lenses which sucks

I think it mainly has to do with sweat, as sweat is very acidic. This may sound strange but I have O-Negative blood, which means that my blood, sweat, tears etc. are very acidic and have a higher tendency to corrode; I was told this by my dentist, who says that people with o-negative blood tend to have more cavities do to the high alkaline nature of their saliva.

So, one flaw I have noticed with Oakley lenses is that if your skin's oil touches the lenses directly for a period of time, the lenses will start to corrode, even if you clean them regularly. To me, this is a manufacturing flaw. Does Oakley replace lenses that have been corroded; and more importantly, do they acknowledge that this is even an issue?

the eye doctor down the street from where I work has a Bob head wearing an FMJ/fire OTT sitting on top of one of her cases. I offered her $200 but she said she wouldn't sell. Been trying to think of what the most I would be willing to pay would be

I've seen it happen to racing jackets, half jackets and monsterdogs in addition to my wardens

I'm guessing this dude isn't married, because his wife would kick his ass

It's nice, and it's only 60 euros (about $95). I tried to get one for my brother who I have turned into and Oakley freak through Usstandardissue.com (he is in the Army and is stationed in Germany) but they didn't have his size unfortunately.

Yep, she's getting a pair of XS Fives when she turns 1 haha, we have already picked them out.

Oakley Molten Jacket
While searching all over for the Salvage leather jacket(I couldn't find so much as a picture, not even on Google)I ran across this. I never even knew Oakley made it. I am quite pleased with it.

Unfortunately, they are my Wardens so they probably won't be able to replace them. Obviously I love wearing them, but with both lenses looking this bad I can barely see out of them.
