Check out the "prices" and the shipping and handling charges. Most of the glasses are supposedly in the $100-$150 range and they want something like $18 shipping and handling per pair. Basically you are buying cheap sunglasses and getting free shipping. I will pass.

I might head to the galleria oakley shop, and check out the new Radar series. They look pretty neat that I just may have to get one for my birthday in about a week.

When I worked at the boat dealership I had two very good customers. One was an Oakley rep, the other was the son of a Ray-Ban rep. Lets just say that Jsharr was never without a VERY good selection of eye wear back in the day.
