No, not a new racquet frame, I will never part with my PS85; I mean new eyewear frames. I wear glasses while playing tennis and thought Tipsarevic looked pretty rad in those Oakley glasses so I made some custom builds on the Oakley website.

Right now I'm leaning toward #5.

P.S. Oh yeah, ignore the different color lenses. If I purchase these frames, I'll be putting in prescription lenses.

EDITED:
(For anyone who's curious what I currently wear)

Let me just end this thread by stating that NONE of the sunglasses look 'rad,' so please, save your money and buy a some scratch cards at your local liquor store: they're fun, cheap, and you can win some major bucks if your lucky!

Yessir, Half Jacket Asian Fit. I actually tried some Flak Jackets on today, but I think the Half Jacket looks better. The XLJ lenses look kinda weeeeird.

And do you have to wear glasses while playing tennis?

For sure, this is a safer bet. I was thinking of going all black, but I wanted to stand out somehow.......*shrugs*....who knows?

My glasses aren't so hot either (for tennis, that is). Consider this though, Oakley frames are about $150. My regular frames, if you can even call them that, are essentially just the ear socks, cost $459. I've worn the same frames for almost 10 years now. Time for a change.

Number 4 is what I would pick.

#2 or #3 would double over nicely as snowboarding shades, except that I wear goggles while boarding.

Well, if you're really committed to buying plastic frames where the lenses easily pop out, you can get much cheaper ones at your local Dollar Store.

In fact, for the same price as the Oakleys, you could get 150 frames at a Dollar Store.
And I guarantee you that those 150 frames will last much longer than the one Oakley frame.
