    Hello there,bought my first pair of Oakleys after wanting a pair for years. I bit the bullet and bought these polarized ones on ebay and being a noob & being a bit compulsive I was just hoping if anyone knew the model or name of these? hoping to gain some knowledge & advice on how to maintain them and find out good places to buy parts etc as these come with a cloth but no case so thats the first thing I need for them,here are the ones I have bought many thanks in advance,toaffer.

    What you have is an Tangent, black with grey marble. They should have Black Iridium Polarized lenses.

    Not too bad, they came out in 2008.

    Will see if they are keepers when they arrive,tried to own a pair of Oakleys last year & loved the look of the square wire 2.0 but just too small for my dome head so had to re-sell them hence going for something a bit chunkier....... Just hope I don't get the bug and start a collection. ;-)

    Paid £47 ($79) for them and the the seller stated they cost £140 ($235) brand new,so does this seem an ok price for them as they stand now considering they are polarized? I know it depends on condition of coarse but they have'nt arrived yet. Also can anyone tell me what the original case was likely to have been? many thanks

    Welcome to the forum, man. How well you did really depends on if you are happy with them. Here is Oakley's original listing. They originally came with a Torpedo case according to the listing. Congrats on your first Oakleys. Take care!
