 Very cool Mike. We talked about these on here a while back along with Martin F. (Where is Martin F these days?). Anyway I didn’t know they’d been reissued. Hope you like ‘em!

Thanks guys, I was waiting for them to re issue these. They did a "wrap around" version which looked too "The Terminator" for me. Plus these were $50 off too  8)

I don’t do gold. I was looking at a similarly styled pair in silver when I was in the Moscot shop in New York (worth a look at their website as they only sell their own brand, some unique and distinctive styles there) but they were HYOOOGE! - much bigger than the RayBans I reckon.  If they’d made them in smaller dimensions they’d have been fine. I occasionally see silver or gunmetal Olympians pop up on eBay but these being a distinctive style I’d like the chance to try them on rather than take an internet gamble.

Well Rod, they do offer free returns, and the $50 off deal was on the gold (which I've warmed up to the last few years, I was a "never gold-er" for a while ;) ) They offer black, silver, and gun metal also

Cheers Mike. Some of those combos look really cool. I didn’t even know that RB had revived the style but it’s long overdue eh?

I've been looking for that original style for years now, have a pair of MOSCOT "Izzy" which are close, (Actually more like the "Lennon Rain" shades) so I jumped when got the promo email...
Definitely overdue. Ray ban has been good the last few years with reissues.

No problem with golden frames myself, the Caravan/Aviator vtg shades my old man gave me are gold. I love the Olympians, but I'm afraid they're to wide for me. Tempted instead by two other models: the Daddy-O and the Hexagonal.

I have an old pair of the "Hexagonal", I'll find out if they're too wide when they arrive, like I said prior,  the "free returns" does come in handy.
