The Deviation is a unabashed look at what Mad Men's most famous character would wear if Oakley were around in the 1960s. Taking style cues from vintage military Randolph Engineering sunglasses, the Deviation's squared-off lens profile, bayonet arms, flat wire bridge, and subtle branding (not every colorway - choose accordingly) combine to create a timeless style with the best optics Oakley has to offer. Think of it like the Frogskin of aviator styles.

* slightly oversized lens profile, but it wears better than many 'teardrop' aviators if you're not into the droopy lens look
* rubber earstems don't grip as well as I'd like, but I was really impressed with the pillowy air-filled nosepads - they are extremely comfortable and supple enough to keep the frame in place all day
* true to Oakley form, glare-killing polarization is excellent and perfect if you spend a lot of time on the road or on the water
