    Tastes vary so I'm sure I'll get anything but a consensus...but what the heck.

    You have $140 and for $135-$140 you can buy one of the following. All are NIB.

    Oakley Probation Brushed Chrome with Dark Bronze

    Oakley Square Whisker VR28 Polarized

    Oakley New Square Wire VR28 Polarized

    Oakley Straight Jacket Metallic Red with OO Polarized

    Oakley Straight Jacket Chrome White with +Red Iridium

    Now this pair whatever it is will become essentially my all purpose pair when I want to keep the uber collectibles stored so law mowing, run to store, going for a run etc. From that perspective the Wire and Whisker along with Straight OO fit the bill. Getting the Straight +Red puts it in the collectible category which is great but not for the targeted use...plus the 15% light transmission is an issue for me here in super bright CA...plus I have highly light sensitive eyes. The odd man out here is the Probation in price and functionality but it is in the price range.

    I personally will go for the Square Whisker... It's a good run around pair, and also suitable for a bit more formal occasions...

    Just my $0.02 worth...

    Straights with the +red. Or what about some Monster Dogs for about $110-$120 & save the rest of the money?

    depends which use you will get out of them. . .
    i would pick the Oakley Probation Brushed Chrome with Dark Bronze
    those are pretty new in stock and they looks cool with a suite and board shorts as well!

    None of the above, something with black iridium would work better since you have light sensitive eyes.

    I'd go with Black SJ's with Black Iridium...If u are really light sensitive I have found Black and Ice to be the best ...but I cant do polarized so my opinion is skewed...MD's are still great customed w/ Black or Ice..I don't see the white chrome being any more rare than other frames of SJ's...but if u really like it I'd custom it with black lenses or Ice...I just checked it can still be done on O's site but ...will cost more..if u are a citicards customer or know one they have great rewards deals on Oakleys I got Half jackets for 66 BNIB and Polished Black/Black Sj for 77 BNIB...I think the Polarized are around 90-100
