    I'm sure everyone saw the London 2012 games this summer, and I'm sure that you noticed that over 600 athletes were wearing Oakleys too!

    We were over the moon to be invited to the Olympics by Oakley and had a great time...even managed to get a custom pair made for us there :) (i've stuck a couple of pics below).

    What do you guys think of them?? Future classic?

    Icon and matching bag. They do look pretty good.

    I'd be happy to model them for you on Signature Sunday if you want to post them to me.
    :wink:

    Yeah, the safehouse was amazing! We managed to get a guided tour too which was awesome. Everyone at Oakley was great to us that day :)

    Ahh, exactly, the GB icons really make the frame; that's why we went for them...like your style Oakley_Sight.

    Without that legal note Herbsley, I might have believed you then...cough cough. :D

    How many different frame styles were they putting together there, I wonder?
    Obviously Radars etc, but what others in the range?
