    This thread is all about the Oakley Jordan OO wire series of sunglasses, released back in 1999. Facts, stories, pics, anything OO.

    There are four different variations in the series:
    OO
    OO Square
    OO-A
    OO-E

    There are many fine details to appreciate with these glasses. The left lens has a small Oakley O logo etched at the bottom. The right unobtainium earsock has the OO logo embossed. The colorways are nothing short of amazing, and each colorway has different details on part of the earstems:

    Black powder - Black carbon fibre
    Gold oxide - Brown tortoise
    Platinum - Brown carbon fibre
    Silver - Transparent brown
    Pewter - Black tortoise

    There is a rumor of a silver/emerald colorway, but I haven't seen any evidence that it ever really existed. O-review has more detailed info on OO and some user reviews.

    The shape of the glasses is unusual in that the lenses are small and the frame is almost flat. Very stylish, but perhaps not as practical, as there is considerable light leakage.

    I recently bought a few NIB pairs from @Yasargil, and below are photos of my OO collection. These are my OO pairs, I also have some square, A and E models, but I'll post photos of them later. The plain OO is the model that fits me the best personally.

    Below are Jordan OO in the following colorways:
    Black Poweder/Grey
    Black Powder/Red Iridium
    Gold Oxide/Leather Gold
    Silver/Blue Iridium

    So glad I just snagged a pair in good shape... I'm just looking for a decent box!

    My gold oxide appears to have brown carbon fibre tho...

    Unless I got fakes? :(

    Many thanks for your expert opinion!

    I somehow doubted these were a commonly faked pair... But your thread got me sweating :p
