I picked up my 11th pair of Oakley's today and are my first metal pair. The Plaintiff. I know some of you wanted to see what the base curve of these is like since they're modeled after the traditional Aviator style. Here you go. These glasses are great, super lightweight and the Monoshock hinge makes it feel like the glasses aren't even there. The coverage is great and peripheral vision is outstanding. Beware, those with larger faces might find their cheeks touching the bottom of the frames, I have a smaller face but my cheeks touch when I smile.
