Anyone out there ever order from nigel

My old M Frames just finally came apart. The lenses are in fine shape, but the hinge cracked and fell apart where the temple pieces meet the front frame section.

I'm looking to replace the frames without paying for all-new glasses (money's tight). offers exact copies (which fit "real" Oakley lenses) for $15 plus $6 shipping (U.S. shipping price).

They LOOK really nice. I just hope they're decent. Anyone order from them before? Good or bad experience? Good quality glasses? Thanks a lot, gang. (I realize that I may get flack about buying imitations, but I can't afford new Pro M Frames.)

Since you made the disclaimer about ordering imitations, I'll forgo your tongue lashing just this once.

Before you go spending $21 for a new M type frame, is it possible to superglue them together? Then you'd have the new "Pro" M frames for a measley $2. LOL.
Gee, I suppose I could do that. :)boy nigel

But having the "real deal" Pro M Frames would be nicer! A possibility, though, and one I hadn't thought about at all. I'm not sure that I have enough contact plastic to do a proper glue job, though. Gotta check that one out.

Cheers, Lazy ol' friend.

I have recieved new frames from Oakley twice for about $10 ea. plus shipping. I am not sure of the exact cost, but they will replace your frames. I would buy the fakes then send in your broke frame to Oakley.
whatever you do, don't get 'em off ebayHaiku d'état

SAME glasses at twice the price. unbelieveable. i was going to get a pair off an auction, watched the bids go up to $35/$40+, other places online have 'em for $10-$25.

i'm alternating between a two pairs i got from a street vendor in puerto rico (one smoke, one hazel), a clear pair from the lbs, and a pair of sunglasses from target.

good luck.

Oakley is very generous when it comes to replacing broken glasses. I would call their 800 # and see what they have to say. I would be they would replace them.
Why didn't I think of that?Lazy

I've done it actually. I have a pair of full metal jackets that I broke one of the ear pieces on. Shipped it back to Oakley and they sent me a brand new pair for $21. I received the new ones in about 2.5 weeks.

I spoke to one of the folks on staff there and they told me they actually take the lense and put it in a brand new frame rather than sticking a new earpiece on it. They do this due to minute differences in color from one batch to another. Pretty good customer service IMO.

Not sure what they would do w/ M frames, but call 'em.

Definitely call Oakley. I hav ea friend who use dot be an Oakley rep and I know he would have replaced them. Most of Oakleys technology is in their lenses, so they wil replce the relatively less important frames pretty cheaply.
