View Full Version : Oakley Romeo's deal?
06-08-2000, 01:22 AM
I am looking for a deal on authentic Oakley Romeo Sunglasses. I know that Costco has them for $175. Can anybody beat that?

Who in the world would pay $175 for sunglasses? GEEZUS! Maybe I am just an old fogey at the ripe age of 24 but I sure as heck wouldn't. Hope you find a better deal.
Maggie - who would wear $12 Wal-Mart sunglasses if they looked nice.

Same here. If I had loads of money to be able to spend $175 on a pair of sweet looking sunglasses I would. But, for right now, $30 tops. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif
but, sorry, no deals here.

If you live anywhere near the border to Mexico or in the LA area, the small swap-meet type of shops always has pretty good imitations... I got a pair of tight oakleys for about 5 bucks and my friends were stunned by how close they looked to the real thing.

I think oakleys are the only sunglasses worth the cost. They last forever and look the best.

ahh but the value is nil if you leave them on the roof of your car and drive off... i used to work for caltrans in calif and i have found 500 dollars worth or more of so called expensive sunglasses. this would be a good time to say thanks to those folks for their gift..... http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gifgotta love a good deal ehh?
yeah I am in the prime of my flashy period almost 20! and I wouldn't spend $100 on sunglasses. I lose everything. No matter how long stuff lasts, it doesnt last long for me.

I've had about 8 pairs of Oakleys, my first 7 were free because I was sponsored by them for cycling. The last pair I bought, has lasted 2.5 years, no scratches, good shape, and still own. Other sunglasses loose the quality.
at any rate they are expensive, but well worth the price.
$175 for sunglases !!!!
If you live in NYC, Chinatown got some good imitations as well $5-$10. You can even haggle if your getting more than one.

My friend ahs those imitations. They are called "Oakies" and they suck pretty bad.
06-08-2000, 04:12 PM
Oakies hahaha Personally i like RayBan. I got me a pair that cost 100 bucks and there is a difference between the lens of the REal rayban and the ones at Chinatown. Chinatown heh gotta love it.. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif

Yep, raybans lenses are made of glass. They're optically correct lenses because Rayban is now owned by Luxottica and used to be owned by Bausch & Lomb, both optical companies. I love my raybans too...took advantage of it when Ashford had that 75 off of 100 deal. Raybans new lenses also have the G15 haze reduction, which is pretty cool; good for driving

I ended up going through Ashford.com with 25% off of $250 and then getting $50 bucks off with the Flooz deal so i ended up paying $138. Expensive, but not too bad. Thanks for all your help!
Yeah the $50 in free flooz is probably the best way to go: also a good way to get $50 off a PS 2 preorder!!!!

Psychobio or anybody who knows it, can you please post the 25% off $250 coupon at ashford. I want to buy the Oakley Juliet. Thanks
Id be happy to find some fake Romeos. Replicaoutlet has been our for a long time and I dont think they are gettin them back. So if you know another place to get the fakes at a decent price lemme know!
