    Hello people
    finaly i put my hand on a pair of 009099 02 Split jacket
    When i see this sunglasses when i travel trough ebay i love and i keep interest to buy them knowing they are not still available anymore and they cost on ebay more than 100 $
    i wait wait and i found them on a portuguese web site of second hand sells.

    I put my hand on a this new pair for 50€ , it was a bargain and they are new , even if they are for sports i love them for casual style and this colour is great for that .
    Other day i found a pair of eyepatch 1 for 10 € like new lol , one pair of twenty XX for another 10 € and the half jacket 1.0 for the same price very good conditions , just need the rubbers nose for the XX and the half Jacket .....
    Greattttttttttttttttt!!

    Talking again about the Split Jacket for what they say on ebay this colour is rare!!!
    i dont know if it is rare or not but i love them .

    My quetion is this :
    I always wash my sunglasses on the end of the day because i pass many grease to the lens because my eyebrows are in contact with lens .

    Like this and straight Jackets they have a screw
    Do you people think this screw will become rust washing them with water .
    Maybe its better wash just the lenses right???

    That part your speaking of is aluminum. The front bolt position is plastic. So essentially it's a plastic threaded bolt which screws into an aluminum T nut. You good to wash them.

    Looks good. Remove the lenses and then soap and water.

    I never remove lenses. No point in it. Soap and water cleans them to

    Gunk often accumulates around the lenses and in the lens groove. I always clean pre owned Oakleys thoroughly ;)

    I'm following u now. I'm usually the only one to wear mine from the beginning and don't usually need to clean. But I can see where that makes sense.

    i have a problem with my hijinx polarized black iridium so now i always clean my lenses in the end of the day
    my hijinx lenses start to peeling and it was on the top on lenses where my eyebrows touch and put some oil
    so its a rule for me , wash lenses every day with neutal ph soap , i dont use the oakley clean liquid , i dont tink it is necessary and i keep my lenses
    pristine with no scratches .
    i only have problem on that hijinx lenses but i keep the rule of cleaning lenses always when i use them
    this is therpoblem i have with my hijinx lenses :
