    I know this has been talked about before but what is your biggest regret in Oakley collecting?

    Did you get rid of a pair you wish you hadn't?
    Let a pair go you should have bought?

    My personal regrets are letting go of my STPL Eyeshades and not buying the 24K Xmetals at $450 retail when i easily could have!

    I had a mate who was a oakley dealer back in the early 90's and i had the oppertunity to buy a medusa hat and goggles and passed them up. Same with a 1st gen Romeo and Mars. it still grates me now.

    I had the itch to start collecting circa ~2004 ish but never went with it, obviously regretting it, damn X Metals and all the rare expensive pairs today must have been so cheap and easy to get compared to today, and yeah not buying the 24K Juliet and X Squared when I was so close to buying them

    Passing on 24K Juliet's because I thought $450 was too steep.

    With oakley collecting, your taste in shades change every few years. I regret having too many sports type glasses and not enough x-metal pairs.
