i was really excited about these when they first came out, but when i tried them on at the Vault a few years ago i felt like the style didn't work on me (maybe it was the retail price telling me that, i dunno...) so i passed on them. then last time i was at the Vault i tried them on again, because like i said, i really like the glasses themselves. i don't know what i was thinking cause they look fine on me, but i was there to buy a different pair that day. i have been looking for deals on a pewter/BIP colorway. i finally i found one on ebay brand new for a little over 100 bux which is the lowest i have seen any of the polarized ones. so i pulled the trigger. i didn't know this frame came with this case too. that's nice.
