    I know i'm not the only one here who's wife hates Oakleys.

    Every new piece i get, i have to either hide it or slowly introduce it into the rotation. Kinda like buying new fish and floating the bag in the tank for a few hours to get the fish acclimated :lol:

    So who else is in the same boat?

    I also know some of you have spouses or SO's who share in your love for the O. For those of you who fall in this category, i am envious :laugh:

    Hahah, well that's the idea of the poll/thread. My wife wears a couple O's that i got her, but she's not IN love with them. She definitely hates my collecting/over spending.

    I'm half and half here... When she's in the mood,and she knows i got a nice bonus... she's helpful in helping me pick out a pair...
    even if i'm not feeling the pair and she thinks it'll look good...she'll suggest it to me...
    but... MOST of the time..and i mean like 98% most....lol...
    she complains about me getting a new pair...
    and i have to go with the fish tank method.
    also, there should be a sticky on a fish tanking method. lmao!

    My wife thinks im crazy and doesnt see it as a hobby. there just sunglasses! blah blah blah.
    Yeah. Im home during the day so i make sure i check the mailbox, talk to the mailman and or catch the ups man so my wife doesnt see. Then i do a new display set up and get the new sets roated in. She walks by the cases everytime she goes to let the dogs out so i know she looks but cant really decipher one from another. sometimes she will ask...""are these new??" ...me: ahhh...no. ive had those for years..(turn and walk away)"

    Step 1. Place box in case
    Step 2. Wait 24 Hours
    Step 3. Remove box
    Step 4. Place new frame in a dark/hidden corner to allow it to settle
    Step 5. Wear frame of similar color/style on first day
    Step 6. Do not wear again and wait 1 week
    Step 7. After 1 week, wear new pair.
    Step 8. Pray wife doesn't notice

    Optional Step 9. If wife notices, buy flowers and beg for forgiveness.

    I don't have a spouse YET (going to ask next year. 6.5 years dating haha), but I made a deal with her. She absolutely despises my Oakley obsession, probably because I talk about it all the time and show her new stuff that I've acquired. She's got 3 pairs now (TACA Ravishings for X-Mas), but she still wears those fake DG $10 shades. She does use the Encounters I got her for all of her sports activities, and loves the Bronze tint, so that's a plus at least. She also steals my Flak Jacket's a lot.

    In terms of actual purchasing, I made a deal with her. I will bear with her in a shoe store or Coach store as long as she spends some time in the O Store with me haha.

    we're in the same boat dude. i got her a few Oaks, with the GB Restless being her fave, but she constantly nags at me for adding to the collection. so the deal is: i can only have 1 single display case, and nothing more. if it's maxed out, means i have to get rid of stuff before adding new ones. and yes, she does check my display once in awhile to see if there's anything new. and if "caught" i always underdeclare the amount i spent on them. =)
