    Has anyone gotten a pair of the Oakley Halflinks? They've caught my eye recently and I love this color combo:

    Just wondering what your impressions are? Any opinions, thoughts etc. are appreciated! Also wondering whether they come in non asian fit? I was unable to find the standard version on Oakley, but maybe I am just blind. :p

    Look's like the Flak Jacket XLJ only not as sporty. Still looks good.

    Wow thats kind of Odd for Oakley to make a frame only in Asian fit. Seems like it would make more sense for them to make both.

    Can Asian Fit still fit?

    It will still "fit", but Asian fit has a narrower nose. Whenever I've tried them on, they sit extremely high on my nose/face.

    I'm of Southeast Asian descent and while I like the Halflink a lot (more subtle than my Flak Jacket and thus can be worn in more places without looking too sporty agressive IMO), the only optioned Asian Fit makes the bridge sit out a smidge too far. If they could offer a Standard Fit, it would sit 1/4" closer -- a much more ideal fit (try the Chainlink and the fit on the bridge is ideal for me. Too bad I prefer the bottom rimless design of the Halflink.

    Oakley designers, if you're listening, please make a Standard Fit option for the Halflink!
