    Have you guys had any funny encounters or reactions about your glasses? I just wore my OTT's out today to get some food and within 5 minutes a guy behind me at the drive thru was yelling at me asking where I got them, and the lady giving me my food said, "here's your glasses" when she handed me my drink. :laugh: When she came back to give me my food there were like 5 employees standing at the window looking at me HAHA. Damn do these things attract attention!

    Awesome story! I bet nothing attracts attention like OTT's.

    I'm sure OTT's get the most attention compared to the other frames.

    I was in Boston wearing my Plasma/Ice XX's and judging from what everyone else wears over there, they were the loudest sunglasses on the street. While walking around Copley Square, a homeless guy pointed me out yelling, "Man those are some crazy @ss glasses! I'm sure you got some spare change on you!"

    I just ignored him and kept walking :lol:

    Whenever I wear Retina Burn with Fire, Atomic Orange with Fire or Antifreeze with Jade Radars, I get ridiculous looks!

    I've had rather normal conversations start because other people are Oakley wearers and notice me wearing them. Nothing really funny unfortunately.

    I get a lot of conversations about my Frogs (usually: "Wow! I remember those! Where did you get them!?). Not so much w/my Jupiters (a few compliments), Fives, or Square-Wires.

    Unless you are wearing a particularly unusual or flashy frame or lens colour, I don't think Joe Public really notices - unless they know their sunglasses or are a fellow collector, then you sometimes get a smile or a nod of recognition.

    Except white frames, of course, which still attract douchey sneers or stifled giggles in the street - but then that is what they are for - days when you are feeling brave.

    Or douchey.

    Unless it is snowing - which is the exception to the rule.

    But anyway, I only get people staring or craning their necks when I wear my Plasma/Fire Romeos, or some of my louder Hijinx. But no-one has subsequently walked into a lamp-post or fallen down a manhole or anything, so I can't think of any particularly amusing anecdotes I'm afraid.

    I get the most looks when wearing my clear Monster Doggles. Which I find interesting because they aren't my loudest frames.

    It is quite an unusual frame though - certainly in terms of size.
    I always thought that it blurred the lines somewhat between a men's and women's frame, due to the size/design of the orbitals.

    Mrs H has a brown tort Monster Doggle, which really suit her. But I look like a total ponce in them.
