    I don't know about you guys, but the section at SGH in my town bores me to tears. So many black frames and black and grey lenses-YAWN
    If it were not for the Holbrooks and Gas cans there would be no color at all. I was wearing my new Juliets, they really liked them.......they had no idea what they were but they liked them. Anyway, I browsed for a little while but nothing was really interesting to me.

    So I decided to check out ebay to find something vintage and colorful-these are incoming-What do you guys think?

    Thats what I'm told-every now and then one comes up, but there is always lenses damage-this one is pretty sharp looking

    thats the 'New 0.4' squared? nice colourway, im not a fan of the squared though (personal preference). but that looks mint! and that planet X frame color.. not something you see everyday now!

    Unfortunately thats not the 0.5.. niether is it the 'Vintage" zeros.. not saying its a bad buy though! heres a link to help you identify Zeros...The Oakley Review - Articles

    as you can see 0.5's have that extra piece of lens.. the 0.4 were the minimalists, after the 0.1. the 0.7 followed the minimalist approach later on. the others (SubZeroes, 0.2, 0.3, 0.5, 0.6) were very extravagant designs. I own a Vintage 0.4 in glitter gold, they're fantastic glasses! incredibly light! you'll love em

    Very cool glasses and they look to be in great shape. I think the color is Cobalt, Planet X was not offered in the .05 style.

    oh yes, i stand corrected. the planet X was the Grey one. but again, these are 0.4 squared, not 0.5..

    Good to know.....so if I'm reading your article right-these came along around 1996? Is that correct

    yup.. and your particular model was retired around 2001 along with half of the 0.4 squareds colorways.. the rest discontinued in 2004. in 1996 i believe thy were still making the Vintage 0.4 though! that was discontinued in 1999!
