I've only just begun my EJ collecting but it was the 1st gen Cobalt/+Red that started it all for me when I was 16. The family dog got a hold of them and chewed them so I replaced them with the FMJ W/+Red. I've begun my hunt and can only dream of the day, if I ever, complete a collection like this. Bravo good sir. Beautiful. Just beautiful.
Same here, My first EJ was a Cobalt/+Red I think I was 17 or 18. They were stolen out of my truck. So I bought another pair, and they were stolen out of my truck as well. Then I got my first pair of Romeo's.... and they were stolen out of my truck. Now I didn't usually leave my glasses in the truck, but when I did, it would get broken into... EVERYTIME!
After that I started wearing wires.

Skip forward a few years, I've got about 5 or 6 pairs and being in my 30s I start felling a little nostalgic. So I go searching for EJs or Romeos and I find the Forum... Now 61 pairs of Oakleys later, I have all the Eye Jackets!

Seems like a broken record but my first O's were also Eye Jackets of the New persuasion but mine were the black/BI. Those glasses went through hell and back and ended up being lost in a tragic river tubing incident after about 8 years of ownership. Bought them in the late nineties and haven't looked back since.

Sounds to me @sharjt and @Malv1 loke we're all three kindred spirits! EJs for life! I moved on to Juliets instead of Romeos though!
I am a Romeo and XX guy myself, my fat head doesn't allow for Juliet's to frequently :) I do have both versions of the Ducati Juliet though. I have always been surprised with all the retro they have done that they didn't do another run with the Eye Jackets, especially with how far O-Matter has come since then!

Thank for the quick reply. I've been scoping eBay for 3 years, missed out on a pair once but haven't seen anything other than arms since then.

Yeah I understand "the search". It came down to the 10w40 for me when looking to complete this collection. Thanks to @Fernando I finally got them. Stick around the forum for a while and you might get lucky in the exchange.

The FMJW/+Red seem to have been the most elusive to me. If you've picked those up @Drewtopia you're one lucky dude! Those ivory/straights will show sooner or later. Keep an eye on the bay, I actually saw a pair recently.
