    A friend of mine owns a pair of oakley sunglasses (flak xlj, I believe) and occasionally lets me borrow them. I didn't realize they were in my pocket before I took a seat and the tension of being in my pocket lead to what happened in the attached media. How can I fix this? I tried boiling it to get it soft enough to stick a needle and connect the two but it never seems to melt. I've seen methods like using Acetone on some sunglasses. Will it work on these? I feel really bad and don't want to even have to show them this!

    Welcome to the forum.

    I would say you should just bite the bullet and buy your buddy a nice brand new pair. And never borrow his again.

    If I had the money to do that, I would, but these sunglasses are rather pricy, though they seem worth it if you can afford them. I, however cannot purchase them in a timely manner.

    Get in touch with Oakley Warranty directly and see how you can buy a new frame ... Usually it's the lenses that are costly ...

    O matter frames aren't repair friendly ... There's no real way you'd be able to properly repair those frames ...

    Never borrow anything you can't afford to replace and contact Oakley and see if they can replace the broken part for you.

    Warranty won't cover that, looks like you should just bite the bullet on this one.

    You break something a friend lets you borrow, but wont replace it? I hate to say it man, but you're kind of a Douche.
