Re-hydrated and updated!
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.
84 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.

I know there are more of "us" out there.
Confession is good for the soul...
My hovercraft is full of eels!
Side-blinders wouldn’t be homely on a Holbrook, J/S.
Lawyers specializing in patent/trademark infringement.must have all gone “dinosaur”.
Much to keep you occupied here.
Very thorough review.
Am I uncomfortable about walking around with an embedded “internal use” RFID?
I shall need to contact my Witness Protection agent...
I can’t see it being a proprietary size/design.
A good optician should have something to fit...
Why would Lux design a critical fastener that’s subject to rotational torque, and installed upside-down, not apply $.0000001
worth of thread-lock??
Lame, and typical.
If the Julie’s fog, retire to the closest air-conditioned bar, and let the fog dissipate.
Shouldn’t take more than a couple o’ beers...
