Will vote for plain white socks,debranded bicycle and any white or pink no name glasses.
Lol yeah, if you hate your eyes. Whatever you think about Oakley styling, pricing or branding their lenses are a bagoolian times nicer to look through in bright sunshine than no name stuff. Which is the whole point of wearing sunnies in the first place.

When did this become the 'critique my fashion' thread anyway? :P

Hipster.. Yeahnah. Think what you like but the safe full of guns means I'm probably more of a redneck...

As for the Big S hate I really could care lees, their gear fits/works for me and they back their products on the few issues I've had including a replacement frame for paint defects. Jawbreakers are comfortable on my fat head/cheek structure and don't have crappy optics as the lense curve increases like so many others.

Nefarious could take it easier as it seems.
There are tons of x-brand (not Oakley) glasses with polarized lenses . But it is ok if you want to stick with Oakley.
Looks like it is a "critique my fashion " and "The Oakley" thread combined.

What's that got to do with the price of fish? Making a polarised lens isn't remotely the same thing as making a good lens.

(And for the majority of situations, non-polarised lenses arent't inherently bad either.)

Good shape and optics Trump any lense coatings. Add to that the taller profile let's me see without obstruction when in the drops.

That's it. As I said if you want to stick with Oakley ,do it. I do have a pair of Oakley's . I was just tired of going out to rides and have to notice that it almost was a must to wear one because everybody around is in the bling skiing/welder/cyclist mix. So it's more a personal thing .
And for me it would be too much to get the "S" so perfectly aligned to the outer world on the socks. :beerchug:
