These shades are so slick. Oakley's attention to detail doesn't fail on this cool accessory either. It isn't obvious in any of the photos, but there is etched metal with an intricate swirly design both on the side where the frame folds and on the end of the tip. You can kind of see both accents in the Cork/Bronze side view (2nd Detailed View above). That, plus the shape of the plastic around the actual eye piece enlarge the look without making the lenses themselves be too big so the result is just seriously understated glamour. I got the polished black/grey version so it turns out that the plastic is shiny deep black and the accents are brushed metal (more or less) that is dark purple leaning towards maroon - I don't know how to describe it exactly. Not a color I typically associate with and I wasn't expecting it (i.e. probably would have hestitated before ordering), but it turned out to be a nice surprise. I wore them on vacation in Mexico for a week by a tropical pool/lush beach and, coupled with my bikini, felt perfectly dressed. My face is heart-shaped and I shy away from frames made for smaller faces so I am not sure how these would look on peeps with a different structure.
