    So I grabbed another pair of Scalpels from my local Vault...
    They are Matte White/+Red... Marked OO9095-03

    But the cross reference says they are supposed to be Matte White/Black Irid...
    The Oakley Review - Glasses

    So what is the deal here? Why did they come with +Red lenses? :blink:
    They were in the closeout case and didn't come with a box...

    It's called DE, or display eyewear. Generally sales samples. Since it rings up with the style name, "DE Scalpel", not with the colorway, a lot of times the staff will switch things to create different items. I've "customized" pairs out of their DE case before.

    Pairs that are released like this are the MPH - Mister Potato Head. Made from mismatched parts.

    Possible it was an MPH that wasn't made in enough quantity to get a MPH model#

    MPH, or mister potato head, are rereleases of older pairs, generally always with non-iridium lenses. They stem from inventory of overrun lenses or frames. They are printed with mph on the frame. They always come with a box. What the OP bought was DE. I would bet their receipt had a DE Scalpel like item.

    DE often has glasses with swapped frames and lenses.

    Na... They were $69.99

    I was looking at them on the Vault website as I wanted another pair of Dark Grey/+Red (which they had for $89)... When I saw the price I asked the guy about the he said something about DE not being discounted and that they had sold out on the Vault page. :sad:
