I have no idea whats the deal with carbon fibre. When I see carbon fibre I get excited, in a good way. No dirty thoughts please. Its the materials which is used in reducing the weight of high performance vehicles without much lost of strength and rigidity.
When I saw the series launched, I was hooked. I was in the market for a new pair of shades, as my Oakleys were peeling and the rubbers expanding due to the sweat and grime.
I purchased this about three months ago when I was in Sabah. Saw it at a few locations with different models and varying prices. On the last day, I could not stand it so I slide the card.
After that its pretty much been sitting in my car un-used, as I seldom drive my Celica. I have also been meaning to get some photos of it but could not get anyone to lend me a macro lens until recently, thanks FOOSI.
Actually the box and the case itself is more beautiful compared to the shades themselves hahaha!
Finally the case is reinforced. My previous pair of Ray-Ban broke as the case was soft case.
Another thing I found out about product photography was that you really got to keep the subjects clean. I wiped the box clean twice, after visually inspecting them, and proceeded to take capture the images, only to find out that it was not as clean as I have expected. Time to invest in a pair of gloves, and a torch light.
Love the patterned micro fibre that mimics carbon fibre material.
The shape looks very similar to my previous one, only that the frame is different. I had the polarized lens as well.
Lets get some close up shots~ =)
Lets hope that this pair will last me a while. I have gone thru a pair of Ray-Ban and Oakleys in the past 3.5 years.
