Anyone have any pairs that have particular sentimental value or represent certain things in your life? Here are mine: First pair of Oakleys I ever bought. Previously I was wearing a Killer Loop Rumble. I kept this pair around even though our first cat, Azrael, rest his soul, decided one day to chew on the lenses. I could never bring myself to chuck this pair as it's a constant reminder that these are just things. I'd trade it any day to have our pet back who passed away far too early at 4 years old. When he passed away it did quite a number on my wife. She loved the little guy. First pair of X-Metals. Ten years ago I took my wife on her first trip to Hawaii. While we were strolling down Waikiki one night, we stopped by a store and I saw these and immediately fell in love with them but the sticker shock made me shy away. My wife saw how smitten I was and said if they made me that happy, any price would be worth it. I recently finished off the set with a Hawaii exclusive microbag thanks to Uluahunter. The green rubber set cost me an arm and a leg but it simply had to be done to complete the look. The DGMods gaskets finished the look. My wife and I went to Tokyo for our honeymoon and when we took the JR Line one day, I noticed the route map in one of the stations. I immediately took a pic of it and thought to myself "That would make one HELLUVA great print on something." Fast forward to winter when I was about to head up to the mountains to go snowboarding when I just happen to find this while on a search for new goggles. There was no way I was going to be denied this. Everytime I go snowboarding or just simply look at the frame and microbag, I'm transported back to the wonderful time we had in Tokyo. My wife bought this pair for me as a Daddy gift when our son was born last April. Before he was born, we took a trip up to NYC to celebrate our last days together as non-parents and had a wonderful time. The NYC exclusive microbag, which just came in the mail, will be a constant reminder of that. The glasses themselves will be a great keepsake to remind me of the joy I had when I met my son for the first time. I plan on getting some Slate Iridiums cut for the frame and have my son's birthday etched on the corner to finish the set. This pair represents the six years that I lived in Beijing from 1991-1997. I left the comfortable life in California and transplanted to one of uncertainty in Red China. This was when I was still in middle school so I pretty much lived there from middle school until high school when I graduated and came back to the US. Those six years were pretty defining for my life. To go from a life where everything was available and taken for granted to a life where nothing you wanted was within arm's reach was a definite eye opener. This was well before China opened it's doors and the economy boomed. We're talking no McDonald's, no malls, nothing. This pair is a constant reminder for me to never take stuff for granted and to appreciate the things that are readily available. I also met the girl who would eventually be my wife during my time in Beijing. We both went to the International School of Beijing which started a long history of being friends in school to dating in college to married post college. This one is just two of my favorite things coming together. Transformers and Oakley. It's awesome when worlds collide. Apologies for the long post! But I do hope there are those of you who have frames with a story to tell! I myself still need something to represent the time I spent in Vegas for college!
