Oakley M2 Frame Sunglasses

Fluid contours and sleek lines add velocity to the look of this sport performance sunglass, the latest evolution of our renowned M Frame™ and its interchangeable lens design. Oakley M2 Frame™ steps up styling with new earstem sculpturing and wrap-around Unobtainium® earsocks, and with nosebombs made of the same sure-grip material, the frame maintains a secure Three-Point Fit. Durable, comfortable and ready for competition, M2 Frame lets you take advantage of our premium lens tints to optimize vision for the environment, and all lenses feature the clarity and protection of High Definition Optics® (HDO®).

How good is this single-lens sport shield? It meets all ANSI Z87.1 standards for optical performance, as well as ANSI Z87.1 standards for resistance to high-mass and high-velocity impact. Accented with metal icons, the stress-resistant O Matter® frame is lightweight for a barely-there feel, and its smooth contouring is matched with lens curvature that opens up peripheral vision. Oakley Polaric Ellipsoid™ geometry extends clarity all the way across the lens so vision is sharp and true at every angle of view. The wrap-around contours improve side protection against sun, wind and impact while durable Plutonite® lens material filters out 100% of all UV.

M2 Frame is available in a range of colors including the look of Carbon Fiber. Each rendition is matched with a performance lens tint, and we offer a full array of accessory lenses. Choose a lens with Iridium® coating for light transmission that is precisely balanced for the chosen activity and environment. You can also match this frame with premium HDPolarized lenses that block 99% of eye-straining glare.

#TBT_Who Remembers The Backstage Clip?

In the Mid and Late 1980s “The Fashion Thing” was to “tight roll” your Girbaud or Cavarrici pant/jean bottoms. So, the big complaint about wearing tuxedo pants were that the pant bottoms were too wide. Thus the Invention of “The Backstage Clip” when positioned correctly would take a wide tuxedo pant bottom to a more desirable skinny fit. The Original Skinny Bottoms 🙂

TBT Tuxedos…We’ve Dressed a Few…..Thank You!!

Many of you already know… but if you aren’t aware, Backstage no longer rents Tuxedos. Mardi Gras Balls are winding down and Prom Season begins in a few short weeks. So it seems an appropriate time to thank all you for many years of support. We will miss you. We should have a little time now to go back in time and find photos for TBTs.

The market place continues to change and as always we must adapt. We have some fun things planned for 2014…stay tuned.
