Pretty pleased to have found these given they've been missing for at least 10 years in my parent's house. Originally purchased by me back in 1991 ish from a PX on an American Army base whilst on a German exchange. Obviously.

One hinge a little bent, not going to enjoy putting that straight...

very nice! never realised they did a metal hinge version.

i currently have a pair of re issue frogskins as my non bike sunnies.

black frame, black lens, polarized. so nice to wear, they are very light.

i have some rayban wayfarers, that are so heavy by comparison, but also do not sit close to your eyes like oakley do.

oakley engineering is very good
