    Continuing the grey theme, here's my latest.

    A generic, 4th gen plasma (emerald) purchased recently at auction with my first set of grey polarized installed. I love the subtle contrast between the shiny metallic frame and dull, non-iridium grey. 17% transmission suits me well, a touch below my go-to Slate, but not as 'Is it night?' as black iridium or my other new friend, dark grey. Surprisingly, only a single per cent below grey itself.

    Yeah, you can see my eyes at some angles but I've never understood the need to hide them. I mean, if you aren't wearing sunglasses, or if you are wearing normal glasses, there's no issue. Why do sunglasses merit layers of iridium to ensure eye contact is impossible?

    Any other grey fans out there? Grey pol anyone?

    Pics.

    I have a wife, is that reason enough? :cool-20:

    Besides, days are always bright and sunny all-year round where I live. If you want eye contacts, why would you wear sunglasses anyway?

    They look very nice. I like grey polarized as well, but I only have them in black O-matter frames. I usually like my X-metals a little more flashy, but I do like these!

    Subtle color combination that works.

    That's a good reason I hadn't thought of before!
