    I honestly wanted an IH Plaintiff until I tried them on, they were wretched. I'd give the Squared a chance, but those offerings don't do anything for me. Maybe an IH or signature edition with some better colors or playing with the stem insets.

    But I don't see these faring well in what is now a sea of Oakley aviator wires. Warden, Felon, Inmate, Probation, Plaintiff, Plaintiff Squared, Deviation, Crosshair, Crosshair 2, Crosshair '12... not to mention the 4-5 women's aviators they have now.

    I know the aviator is pretty timeless, but I felt the Plaintiff was the weakest of their offerings. The least inspired, and with the heavy teardrop shape they looked a little pointy and narrow. I wasn't a big fan of the flat stems either, very un-Oakley, too mainstream.

    Once again, if these weren't essentially a "2.0" or a rehash and were left to stand on their own merit they might go over pretty well.

    Edit:
    Forgot to add- I wore aviators for years in middle school and into high school before I got my first pair of Oakleys. I actually opted for the 'square' aviator shape from AO though, much more masculine, and much more comfortable without being a douche in aviators.

    And Don Draper approves

    And an aviator frame without a brushed chrome or standard silver? Poor move, Oakley.

    I'll take a matte black/grey polar when they hit $75.

    LOL nice touch with Draper. I am going to look at these before I pass final judgement. I was debating on getting the Deviations with the Ruby or the Rossi but I might wait till these come out.

    I bought the deviations, but not too impressed. big and clunky, this doesnt look to be any better.
