    Right for a while now ive been searching around the Oakley website for some new shades. I think the ones ive settled on are the Minutes Silver w/ Ice - these look ubber cool [​IMG] Maybe im wrong what do you recommend!!

    Well best advice I can give is to go to your local Oakleys stockist and try on a few pairs, the sunglasses may look cool but if they don't fit your face then they still won't look good on you. Minutes (and Oakleys in general) I've found do look quite good on most but not all people so I wouldn't be too worried but you also have to look at the comfort aspect as they are meant to fit quite tightly.

    Someone posted a discount internet store a while back and I bought a pair of Scars from there but unfortunately I can't remember the name off the top of my head.

    Yeah those are my babies, they are alot heavier than the straight jackets I had as they are metal and not a polymer like the straights. Got them from a site online which imports to the UK, was a bit of a fart on but I saved about 50 quid on them.

    I wear Oakley prescription glasses, if I'd had the money I'd have bought another pair for sunglasses but they were kinda pricey.

    Vision Express stock Oakleys so you can go in and try them on to find which you like.

    Probably get your prescription from the eye-doctor, then go into the oakley shop?

    You will have to see an optician which sells them, all the places online i've seen only do the oakley lenses.

    After over 2 hours of ringing round ive found some - yey!!! www.r-mw.co.uk apparently they are the only ones that have any left in the uk and they have loads of other exclusives too. So ive ordered from there and i get them tomo guarrented which is kinda cool. Just hope the sun comes out so that i can where them. They also do the prescription stuff too on loads of lenses and frames here. Another thing is that the person on the phone actually knew what they were on about some of the people ive spoken to were lets say not the sharpest knifes. Who would have thought oakleys would have been so hard to get hold of.

    So im a happy camper! Ill report back when i get them with the quality.
