    I cannot realistically ever see getting down to a 'last piece' at this point, not willingly. Theft aside, fire does not destroy most of my pairs... Even if I needed to sell for $ I have a few customs that are not worth much that I would keep just because... So I'll have at least a few for the remainder of the days for which I am a passenger on this ride. The last pair I wear will be the one they bury me with I suppose - Yeah, that's as close as I can get to a 'final' piece.

    The only other possibility I can think of is that the sun abruptly stops between now and that unplanned final pair, in which case a world of total darkness will likely require attention to other details. Not to mention there being no need for 'sun'glasses.

    Not trying to muck up your thread... I know you were looking for an answer, a single/favorite pair, but that is the point - there is none for me. I have thought about this before and the answer is the same, worst case scenario downsize still leaves 'at least a few'. :)

    I don't believe there is a single grail piece or set that would herald my retirement. It would instead be defined by other factors.

    All of them. it is a fun ride and I am at the point where I am just waiting for some rare Juliets to hit a decent price-point. which to me for some of them like the polished carbon ichiro would be double MSRP.

    My retirement 'piece' is an H&K P7 with hollow points. Ride the Oakley wave until then.
