    As Oakley is US based, are glasses more expensive outside the US? Are there easier things to get here as opposed to other parts of the world?

    Just curious.

    It's disgusting.. In the uk they are so expensive compared to us prices. A frame here could be £220 but in the us priced at $220. Sooo much cheaper in the us!

    Same here in Australia mottles. Majority of my collection has come from other countries. Only ones purchased here in Aus have been bargains that I scooped up with a little luck and good timing.

    Not to mention you get screwed with VAT, euro fluctuations. Could be worse, you could live in Hong Kong where everything is outrageously priced.

    It's cheaper in the US because that's where the items are put together and shipped from, it's not a surprise. If you want to order directly from Oakley in the UK then the extra is because of the VAT, shipping charges, and import fees, it's how economies work. Burberry can be bought cheaper in the UK than in the US for example because it's based in the UK. Such is life.

    Sounds like some of you guys need to come visit the US for a vacation shopping trip.
