    I am from Singapore and will be traveling to the states soon. I was wondering if i could go to the stores and custom an Oakley Sunglass and get it on the spot? Would the price be different if we customise it online?

    Locally i need to wait for about 2month for the sunglass to arrive.

    Where in the states will you be traveling?

    In NYC you can custom your Oakleys and get them on the spot.

    @nlgrav182 I believe can direct you to places out on Long Island. Unless you plan on going into Manhattan where there are only 3 stores.

    I saw on Oakley Store Locator: http://www.oakley.com/dealers/results

    It says Billabong does OCP (Oakley Custom Product). I guess this should be the one
    Any idea if they are still there? as i could not find it on the Roosevelt Field Mall Store Directory

    I think all the O-stores do customs on the spot. That may not be true though

    I don't think Billabong does OCP. I'm pretty sure they are more concerned with selling their own product than custom building someone elses product.

    There are 3 Oakley stores that will be "near" you. They are the following and none of them are at Roosevelt Field Mall. Your best bet is hit Smith Haven if you do not want to go to Manhattan.

    I see....you are looking at authorized Oakley sellers. Those stores sell Oakley but they do not customize as far as I know. Only an actualy Oakley store will customize for you I think :)

    I know I keep saying Manhattan but if you are visiting from Singapore I would imagine you are going to visit NYC? That would be your opportunity. :D

    Thanks for the tag Frank. I've seen all three of these stores, Oakley Terminal 8 Jamaica store is in JFK airport, so I'm sure you'll be hitting there on your way in from Singapore. However, I think they are small, if not a kiosk, and probably don't customize on the spot. Smith Haven and Riverhead do customize, but no lens etching. You can build your own glasses with your own hands, inspecting all parts for quality along the way. I've built M-Frames, Frogskins, and Canopy goggles in Smith Haven and, while it's not really that thilling, you can test out any combos you want as the salespeople will build whatever you want with no qualms about tons of stuff coming out of boxes.

    As a ballpark, Smith Haven is about 50 miles from Roosevelt Field Mall and Riverhead is about 70 miles. I would suggest you go into the city and hit Times Square store and/or Fifth Ave, because I am sure you'll be in NYC on your trip.
