    I am sure this has been done, but I searched and didn't find anything so no yelling at me!

    What was everyone's first pair(s)?

    Mine was a Cheetah Eye Jacket in I believe 1995. I was only 12, so I can't be blamed for the horrible choice haha. Can't remember what happened to those.

    Second pair was a M Frame Sweep Black/Grey in I think 1997. Lost those at my cottage.

    Third pair was an Electric Mustard 1st Gen Straight Jacket. Absolutely loved those glasses...and I have no idea what ever happened to them.

    I think it was 1982 maybe 83?. I bought a pair of Factory Pilots, black with grey lens, for $35 on sale. Gauranteed for life at that time. Normal price was was $50, outrageous for plastic sunglasses..

    My first pair of Oakleys were a set of Oakley 3's in red for my BMX bike. In fact I still have them, somewhere.

    My first pair of glasses was a Carbon Fiber, 1st gen, M-Frame which broke. I think it had a lifetime warranty. Our local Oakley rep gave me a Joker Green frame as a replacement. I was truly disappointed but he also gave me a couple of black frames to make me happy.

    My brother bought a pair like that. Did the rubber on the earpieces fall off on yours? His did and he tossed them. I really wish I stopped him from doing that.

    My first pair was a simple black/black minute in '02. From those simple beginnings arose the collecting madness.

    Oakley Romeo 1 Titanium Gold Iridium way back 1998. Sadly lost them only after a year of owning them.....

    But now I'm happy again! Got 7 romeos at the moment! (3 complete colorway w/ box no cracks, 1 jordan no box and 3 more spares)

    A boxed jordan will complete the romeo collection!

    Yes, a few times. Had them replaced a few times. There was a high failure rate and they soon changed the lifetime warranty to 1 year.
