    Looking at changing the lenses for a pair VR28 , then no more waiting for the final pair to complete my collection. Not going to pay the 200 plus quid that some seller on the bay wants.

    Sounds great. Post some picture when ready, please.
    What's the big difference between eye jackets and trenchcoats?

    I will do when finances allow. Will be getting @Chris A Hardaway to do the lenses.
    The size of the frames and the earstems: the earstems of the Trenchcoat are much thicker to support the frame orbits(which are larger verticaly than the Romeos). Through the larger orbits you get a more even looking lens. Lastly, the earsocks aren't shaped like Eye-Jackets, they're just lumps of 'Unobtanium'.

    No problem: if you can wait around for another 40-50, I've found a pic which explains the comparison a lot better. Tried to upload it to my mobile bt it wasn't having any of it.
