    I got my first pair of Oakleys razor wire for 7 dollars. The second pair was m frames for 20 dollars. The third was A pair of flak polarized withal extra set set of lenses that came lance Armstrong case and bag for 70 .. I was thinking man that is the most I will ever spend on sunglasses. I saw xmetals and thought who would pay that much money for them. I know I never would. I now have 35 pairs of X metals .

    It was this dang forum for me lol! :)
    I think I had somewhere around 8 pairs of Oakleys when I joined. I'm not sure how many I have right now. I need to count again but it's pretty close to 50 pairs. 6 pairs of X-Metals currently.

    Maybe I'll pay less than $10 for a pair of Oakley. You are in so deep with the X-Metals.

    I felt the same regarding my collection a long time ago, but the rules got tossed when I spent $160 for an Inmate.

    LOL. I started off with a pair of original Eye Jackets and they broke. Said, to myself, wtf. Ended up trading my skateboard for a Diamond back bike and another pair of Eye Jackets. They broke too. After that, I got some t-wires and was like these scratch too easy and said I'm out. Fast forward to 2008 when I finally discovered they changed the O-Matter to the new formula, and I was hooked again. Missed out on most of the X-Metals because of the original O-Matter that was so fragile. Turned me off from Oakleys from about 96-08. I missed out on a lot of great glasses during that period. :headbang:

    I missed the boat on the X-Metal line too, I got hooked on the Dispatch... I can only wonder what could have been if I got into that line years earlier.

    You know there will be no intervention. But we will happily take those wires off your hands. I can't do much with them, though.

    I'm at 40 and it is kinda scary, but I'm liking it.

    Too late for me for any kind of intervention or cold-turkey standoff...I was okay with 6 or so pair of Radars then found this place...

    Oh well, could be worse. Hookers and Blow is a lot more expensive.


    So I hear.
