    Hi guys,
    New here, just purchased a Oakley - Frogskins LX Asian Fit - Grey Tort Fade Frame-Grey Lenses at amazon for $120. Might come next week so I'm excited!
    Which To Choose? - Frogskin-LX_2039-07.jpg


    I was wondering though since I have the asian features (Low nose bridge) would other non LX sunglasses fit me. i.e Regular Frogskin, Holbrook or Jupiter ? Assuming that LX means asian fit

    LX means they are acetate instead of O-matter . They should fit the same as regular frogskins I believe. Very nice pickup by the way, I really like them.

    careful leaving em on the car dashboard etc though, acetate has a tendency to warp under heat

    Guys my problem is that sunglasses tend to leave nasty red marks on my nose bridge. You think this frog skin asian fit that I bought would solve my problem? I was also thinking about getting Holbrooks? Do I have to get asian fit Holbrooks or would a regular Holbrook solve my problem with those red marks?

    If it leaves marks, I'm guessing its due to the weight of the frame as well? The LX feels a tad heavy than O matter frames, so do keep that in mind.

    I was thinking of probably returning this and getting the regular o matter frogskin sunglasses...they are lighter from what I have researched...it might help with the red marks.

    What do you guys think? this is my first oakley sunglasses so I'm not sure what to do
