    I had an idea for a custom Holbrook like 6 months bag. All light brown woodgrains, with raised woodgrain 'O' icons and bolts, with tungesten iridium polarized lenses. Like the Holbrook version of the Koston Frogs.

    And What does Oakley go and do? Put that **** on Jupiter Squared. ****in weak.

    @wrist - LOL

    @BAPD - That's some killer custom lens/icon matching, my friend. Especially digging the clear frames with Chrome, and the violet/violet matching on the Batwolf. (And I'm glad you didn't post up the WhoIsThisKid Hijinx with the green lens - cos the stock lens looks better IMHO. :smile: )

    @ausoakley - To be honest, I'm all about the lens matching the 'O' icon. I don't think you can go wrong with that. Although Oakley themselves get it wrong sometimes. Please see in the Hijinx range, for example -
    Crystal Black with Black Iridium needs a grey lens
    Brown Smoke needs Warm Grey
    And the Propaganda edition was crying out for Ice Iridium.

    But then, that's what Custom is all about.

    @bapd77 I love the batwolfs. Did you make your custom pieces in an o store or on the website? Where did you get the chrome iridium
    for the fuel cell? I'm not a fan of the clear frames but the combinations look sick!!

    @herbsley after seeing the lens match the icon in real life, I would have to say I agree. Can't wait to go back to the o store after
    Christmas and pick up some more goodies lol

    They look really sweet but to me clear frames don't seem to be very practical. Each to their own I guess

    True, clear frames are impractical in bright sunlight, due to the icicle effect and letting in light at the sides. Same with crystal and smoke frames, in my view, though to a lesser degree.
    But where they come into their own is on days with changeable weather. Or if you are in the mood for sunglasses when it isn't really that sunny.
    As an example, the other day it was cloudy here, with the sky just completely bright white. Ideal for a clear/crystal frame and a lighter lens to take the edge off the glare.
    So they do gave their uses.

    iPad. So with $715aud I might be able to score a few custom pairs also got my eye on the max fearlight fuel cell, so well see how things go
