Sheinman kits out Saints duo
Jim Mallinder and Brian Facer in L'Etape du Tour
We recently welcomed Northampton Saints director of rugby Jim Mallinder and sales and marketing manager Brian Facer to be fitted with eyewear to aid them on their upcoming L'Etape du Tour challenge for charity.
The pair will be racing one of the most difficult stages of the Tour de France on 14th July 2012 to raise money for the Puzzle Centre; a charity which helps children with autism and other communication needs.
Jim was fitted with the Adidas Retego in matching Saints colours black and green and Brian was fitted with the Oakley Fast Jacket. Both sunspecs have interchageable lenses to cope with varying light conditions and will protect their eyes and the delicate skin around them from the sun, wind and possibly rain!
We wish them the best of luck for their challenge!!
Oakley Pitt Bull for the Mont Blanc Massif Trek
Pitt Bull on charity trek
We are delighted to have gifted Maria Dineen with a pair of Oakley Pit Bull sunglasses as she embarks on the Mont Blanc Massif Trek.
Members of the Pertemps team who are taking part in the challenge will be aiming the reach the peak of Mont Blanc in the French Alps which is 15,800 feet above sea level in 5 days. They are all raising funds for charities such as NSPKU (The National Society for Phenylketonuria (United Kingdom) Ltd).
The Oakley sunglasses have polarized lenses which are perfect for this challenge as they will reduce the glare at such a high altitude keeping visibility as clear as possible. The lenses are made of Oakley’s Plutonite which has high impact resistance and complete Ultra Violet filter throughout the lens.
The black iridium tint on the lenses is also very beneficial as they work best in very bright conditions. The tint only allows 10% light transmission and therefore at the high altitudes of Mont Blanc Maria’s eyes will be protected.
We wish them all the luck in the world and hope they raise lots of funds for this very worthy cause.
Refurbishment has started!!!!!!!!
Look what's happened, more pictures to follow soon.

M O S C O T Eyewear Arrives at Sheinman
MOSCOT eyewear is a collection which was born in the United States of America in 1899. Mr Hyman Moscot started the brand by selling spectacles on Orchard Street in Manhattan, New York.
A few years later in 1925 Mr Hyman Moscot passed over the reins to son Sol Moscot whom expanded the brand and opened the very first MOSCOT shop in Rivington Street. The Moscot family then decided in 1936 to relocate the family business to Orchard Street where it still thrives today.
In 1951 Joel son of Sol Moscot inherited the MOSCOT brand. Joel was driven by the strong believe of maintaining a high level of customer satisfaction and ensuring family values were upheld.
1986 saw the arrival of Dr. Harvey Moscot, soon to be joined by his brother Kenny Moscot in 1992, who to this present day are still running the MOSCOT empire in its current form and unique world renown style.
Their now famous flag ship shop opened the same year on 69 West 14th Street on the corner of Sixth Avenue in downtown Manhattan.
The entire MOSCOT brand incorporates styles which are classic yet timeless, and are regularly worn and styled by Pirates of the Caribbean star Jonny Depp amongst others.

Ellie at Everest!
Sheinman patient makes Base Camp
Back in May we featured a patient of ours, Ellie Parker who was hoping to climb to base camp on Mount Everest to raise money for the charity Childreach. We were happy to supply her with some prescription Oakley Fives sunspecs to ensure her eyes and the delicate skin around them was protected from the high levels of Ultra Violet radiation she would encounter at this altitude.
Ellie has been back in touch recently to inform us that her trip was a success and we are pleased to include some photographs from her trip, she has also provided us with some more detail about the expedition:
"We left Kathmandu and flew to Lukla on the 6th September, and began the trek on the following day. It took eight days to trek up to base camp and three days to trek down, arriving back at Lukla on the 17th. We stayed at tea houses run by Sherpas in the villages along the way who carried our large rucksacks for us and cooked all our meals. It was an exhausting but amazing experience- the views were incredible! The Childreach project we visited on the way up was at Lukla and we also visited a Buddhist monastery. The whole trip was fantastic and a great success- every one of us made it to base camp. The sunglasses were an essential as the light was so bright up there and not only did they protect my eyes but allowed me to take in all the amazing views clearly!
Thank you again to Sheinman's for your support."
A history of innovation
Oakley sunglasses are a well renowned brand of sunglasses; they are especially popular with those who love sports and outdoor pursuits because of their sporty look and feel and the many features they offer the professional and amateur sports men and women.
Oakley as a brand name has been around for over thirty years would you believe in fact you can trace the brand back to its origins in 1975. The name Oakley is actually the name of the creator of the brand’s pet dog, the story goes that a keen motocross enthusiast was busy working on a grip substance that would stay tacky and still provide adequate grip even when wet, his name was James Jannard. He wanted to use the substance to help fellow motocross enthusiasts to be able to grip the handlebars of their bikes better and the gripping material was to be used as part of the glove.
This first incarnation was known simply as the Oakley Grip and is a far cry from the ultra advanced Oakley sunglasses you can purchase today, Jannard had tried his hardest to get the brand recognised but because it originally lived on the riders gloves it was too small and not well known enough to be recognised. This is when the idea of a pair of motocross goggles came to him; he would be able to place the Oakley logo clearly on the strap so that this time it couldn’t be missed.
Overtime the Oakley brand and in particular the eye goggles became better known, so much so that by 1984 Oakley as a brand produced its very first pair of Oakley sunglasses, the Eyeshade. This first pair of Oakley sunglasses had removable lenses and was made entirely of strengthened plastic, they were light weight and flexible and with their removable lenses it didn’t matter if they became squashed at the bottom of the bag, the lenses would simply pop out rather than break or crack.
These features proved a huge hit with cyclists, from the amateur to the professionals and the famous Greg LeMond wore them when he won the Tour de France. This association with top class sportsmen only helped to strengthen the brands appeal and the popularity of Oakley sunglasses. Of course, now that the brand had become well known, it had to respond to the new level of demand and this meant not only meeting supply requirements but also working to improve the quality of the Oakley sunglasses that were available. The next leap forward came when the Oakley brand created the M – Frame; this was then followed by the 5 series and many more to date.
It wasn’t so long ago now that Oakley became part of a company that sells high fashion eyewear including leading brands such as Ray Bans and Petrol, two giants in the fashion world. ; This meteoric rise in fortune for the Oakley brand has allowed them to push their technology and research further and further forward, with the latest addition to the Oakley sunglasses family being the Oakley Jawbone.
Oakley sunglasses have a reputation for high quality and being at the cutting edge of design and comfort. They are worn as both fashion items and as part of a sports person’s kit, one pair in particular has become extremely popular, especially in the world of cycling, this is Oakley Jawbone.
Let’s have a look at why the Oakley Jawbone range has proved so popular. Well, firstly the Oakley Jawbone is the very latest innovation in sunglasses technology and remains an industry leader; it has been hailed within the industry as being the very best in its field and is widely worn by professional athletes who swear by its design and performance.
So what does the Oakley Jawbone range do that manages to supersede its predecessors? We can start with High Definition Optics® (HDO®) along with XYZ Optics® which provide the wearer with unbeatable clarity at all angles of vision, this is even more pronounced when looking through the sides of the lens, the contours that open up to provide a peripheral view. The lens is also designed to provide the optimal protection against the sun, wind and any side impact.
That’s just the lenses, which you can change at speed simply by using the quick release mechanism on the lower jaw of the Oakley Jawbone sunglasses; add to this the nose piece that pivots for extra comfort and fit.
The frame of this state of the art pair of sunglasses actually boasts a form of suspension, imagine the constant vibrations running through your body should you be running or cycling, these eventually transmit to the sunglasses, the Oakley Jawbone frame allows for the lenses to move within the orbit of the frame as if they are cushioned. This keeps them free from the stresses and strains experienced by the frame, thus ensuring that the clarity of vision is never compromised.
The story doesn’t end there either, the Oakley Jawbone can also boast Oakley’s very own hydrophobic technology, this ensures that should the lenses come into contact with any fluids then they will not leave a streak or sheen that could hamper the users view. This technology also allows for oils and other residues to be wiped away with ease without leaving a mark. Then there is the anti static feature that prevents dust and grit from being attracted to the lenses as you travel.
All of this is quite breathtaking for a pair of sunglasses and this is why the Oakley Jawbone range is so popular and successful as a fashion piece and as part of a professional athlete’s arsenal. You can find the Oakley Jawbone by simply searching online, you will be able to find out loads more information on its features and see how it looks too
Remember that with a purchase of this magnitude it might be best to find a dealer or stockist in your local area and try on a pair before you buy, just so you can get the feel of them before parting with your hard earned cash...you know that you will be more than satisfied.
Colours Will Mark You Out As An Individual
The quality and technical proficiency of Oakley sunglasses has never been in question and the sunglasses have always stood out as being stylistically unique. However, the company has recently upped the stakes with regards to style and fashion with the introduction of Oakley Jawbone colours, which puts the finishing touches of the sunglasses in the hands of the consumer. Mass production has changed since the days of Henry T Ford and his famous comment about having any colour as long as its black and these sunglasses are the perfect example of consumer choice. If you want your sunglasses to be the perfect example of your style, Oakley are giving you the opportunity to find the right colour.
As with most sporting products, the range of Oakley Jawbone colours was rolled out to the professionals first of all which has helped to drive the demand to the end consumer. In 2009, many of the cyclists who were racing in the Tour de France announced they would be wearing colour specific Oakley sunglasses throughout the race. The choice of colour was entirely down to the cyclist and the choices indicated a lot about their personality or preferences. Many cyclists chose their national colours, showing a patriotic side whilst others merely selected their favourite colour.
This variety of choice is open to all consumers, meaning that Oakley Jawbone colours are open to everyone, regardless of how skilled they are on the road. It is unfair to criticise everyday people for not being as talented as cyclists who compete in the Tour de France but now there is the opportunity to look as stylish as the professional racers. Celebrity endorsement is clearly very important for products such as these and Oakley lead the way in bringing the same high quality product to consumers and professionals.
One of the reasons why the Oakley Jawbone colours range is so popular is because there is no dip in the level of quality that is expected from Oakley sunglasses. The sunglasses are designed to the highest specifications on the market, with anti-glare features ensuring that no matter how bright it is, your focus can remain on the road at all times. Equally, if rain or sweat threatens your vision, the Oakley Hydrophobic coating prevents your vision being impaired in any way at all. This means that no matter where and how often you ride, the quality of your vision will not impacted upon by any change in climate or conditions.
The design of the Oakley Jawbone sunglasses instantly grabs people’s attention but the popularity of the shades means that many cyclists make them their number one choice. The introduction of the Oakley Jawbone colours provides a greater degree of individuality to come through in the sunglasses and if there is a particular colour or shade that symbolises your cycling persona, it is possible to present that to world. By choosing Oakley, you are already choosing a market leader in technical sunglasses but by choosing your own colour design, you are saying a lot more about yourself.
Oakley Sunglasses Styles Are Top Of The Range
It doesn’t matter the industry, when it comes to market leaders, there are usually a number of ranges and products available which have helped that company stand out from the rest.It doesn’t matter the industry, when it comes to market leaders, there are usually a number of ranges and products available which have helped that company stand out from the rest. Sometimes, some firms have a single product that is so brilliant they don’t need anything else but usually, the mark of a great company is being able to produce a whole range of styles and products that are considered amongst the best in the business. When it comes to sunglasses, there is no doubt that Oakley is one of the most important firms and a lot of this is due to the consistency of the Oakley sunglasses styles and products.
The firm is very well respected in the sports sunglasses range and it should be no surprise to learn that Oakley sunglasses styles are very popular for sportsmen and women of all levels. The top professionals wear Oakley but even amateurs can benefit from wearing these sunglasses. Golf and cycling are the two sports most commonly associated with Oakley sunglasses and the technical features of the shades provide an added edge to anyone playing the game. The anti-glare features come in extremely useful to people needing a clear vision at all times when they play.
Oakley is not just about kitting out athletes though and the company has a whole host of Oakley sunglasses styles available for all consumers to choose from. The range of lifestyle sunglasses are as uniquely styled as the sporting range of sunglasses but offer up all the protection you could need from the glare of the sun. Regardless of what style you choose, selecting Oakley provides a level of UV protection that will prevent even the most sensitive of eyes from being harmed or having to squint in the sun, regardless of how bright the glare is.
Oakley understands that people may have a requirement for different types of lenses or protection depending on what activities they are undertaking and the Oakley sunglasses styles provides a level of flexibility. Many of the cutting edge Oakley products have the ability to switch lenses, which means that if the weather changes, you can stay in focus by altering the lens you are using. Many countries experience weather which can change in an instant so stay on top of your performance by always having the right lens for your needs. The locking mechanism of the Oakley sunglasses means that switching lenses is simple whilst ensuring the lens remain secure when locked in place.
Whether you choose Oakley sunglasses to grab an advantage over your rivals or you just like the unique design and technical benefits they offer, there is no doubt the right pair of sunglasses can be found for your needs.

And from the fittest sporting professional to the most relaxed sun-worshipper, staying safe and fashionable in the sun has never been easier than it is now.
Oakley C SIX exclusively at Sheinman!!
Limited Edition Oakley lands in UK
Sheinman is delighted to announce the arrival of piece "61" of only 250 made in this Limited Edition Oakley sunspec. This premier eyewear design in the new Elite collection blends carbon fiber with customized mechanics and the world’s best optical technologies. Called Oakley Elite C SIX, its moniker comes from the fact that carbon (the “C” in the name) is the 6th element in the periodic table, hence “C SIX.” This invention was inspired by more than just the passion to create the ultimate sunglasses. “We took examples from segmented creatures in the animal kingdom,” said Senior Design Director Peter Yee. “We looked at animals like the armadillo and studied how parts move and slide. It’s the same idea with armored suits – you have flexibility and function that remains protective.“
Auto racing was another inspiration. “We were looking at cams that move valves,” said Global Eyewear Development Manager Steve Ogren. “That’s when we came up with the concept of radial cams for the frame mechanics.” The connection to racecars didn’t stop there. “Some of the contours of C SIX take cues from speed machines,” said Oakley President Colin Baden. “When we decided to use carbon fiber, we went to the guys who have been building Formula One racecars for decades, Crosby Composites of England. They’re the absolute best on the planet with this technology.”
Oakley Elite C SIX utilizes pure carbon fiber, a material thinner than human hair yet stronger than high tensile steel. This breakthrough innovation from the aerospace industry is blended with resins and assembled into structures more than 40 layers thick.

They are designed to high specifications which provide a guarantee to the consumer that they can rely on them for quality. Shopping online means that many suppliers are able to offer their products for sale, but not every brand of sunglasses can be relied upon. This is why more and more consumers are choosing to buy Oakley sunglasses because it is a brand that can be relied upon. Therefore, when an Oakley sunglasses sale comes about, it is inevitably very popular.
Although the Oakley range of sunglasses looks great, if they did not perform certain tasks, they would not be of any benefit. It is sometimes overlooked, but sunglasses need to be able to protect the wearer’s eyes from the sun. This seems an obvious comment but many people wear sunglasses for fashion reasons and forget that there is a very good reason for wearing them in the first place! Buying from an Oakley sunglasses sale gives the consumer the opportunity to guarantee high quality safety and UV filter features, whilst ensuring that they look great.
And it is the style and fashion of the Oakley sunglasses range that really appeals to many consumers.

A different class of sunglasses
If you watch cycling with any great regularity, you will have noticed Oakley Jawbone shades being one of the most popular products in the race. It is fair to say that the sunglasses stand out with their striking design and bright use of colours, but this is not the reason for their popularity. In a race environment, it is important to seize any advantage that may be available and these types of shades offer tremendous aerodynamic qualities. They are almost constructed around the shape of the face, such is the way they fit so snugly, which can make a huge difference in racing conditions. When split second differences mean so much, having aerodynamic products can really help a racer.
It is always important to remember, when choosing a pair of sunglasses, to find a pair that offers proper protection from the sun’s glare. There is a need for full UV protection and this comes as standard with Oakley Jawbone products. Some of the top sunglasses on the market may look good but not all can offer this level of protection. You would think that the key aim of sunglasses is to prevent the sun’s harmful rays from filtering through but not for all shades, it would appear.
That may seem like a boring thing to talk about, especially when there are so many exciting elements about the Oakley Jawbone product range, but it should be at the top of any requirements list. However, once you know that the shades offer full protection from the sun’s glare, you can start to focus on the other key benefits that come from choosing this product range. Elements like the interchangeable lens will help you keep a clear focus regardless of the changing light conditions. If you are planning travelling for a long time or in different terrains, this benefit can be huge to a rider.
Although sunglasses are not heavy, you will want to travel as light as possible. Therefore, having a pair of Oakley Jawbone sunglasses which have the ability to change lenses as opposed to having to carry a number of different sunglasses should help lighten the load slightly. It can also make it easier to remember everything that you need to pack and carry with you. There are so many things that have to be remembered for race conditions, choosing a product that will make your life easier is definitely a sensible choice.
The Oakley range of sunglasses is available for ladies as well as men, ensuring that everyone can benefit from the top quality products. There are subtle differences between the male and female face and the sunglasses have been designed to accommodate and compliment the differences between the two. This should mean that regardless of who you are, you will be able to have a pair of sunglasses made with you in mind. If you are looking to race in your best time possible, having everything in your favour, including your sunglasses, could be the difference between winning and losing.
Oakley Jawbone super sunglasses
Excitement amongst cycling and sports enthusiasts.
Now that the spring is well and truly upon us, there is a great sense of anticipation and excitement amongst cycling and sports enthusiasts. No more freezing cold runs in the park, no more rain drenched rides into work (hopefully!). Spring time has brought some sun and the blue skies along and so the idea of taking up a sport or simply getting the bike out of the garage and dusting it off is starting to sound more and more appealing. Now, we all know that summer follows spring, however in the UK; summertime rarely really seems to live up to its name. Indomitable spirits still make sure they are starting to get in shape for the summer, in the hope that there will be more than a week’s worth of sunshine and cloudless skies.
In an effort to get back to things more positive let’s focus on cycling in spring. It’s still cool enough to not get overheated and is a great time to start to get those miles in the legs and get over the first few weeks of saddle soreness. It’s also a great time to check over our equipment and make sure that we are all set for a summer’s ride. The last thing that you want to happen is for something to go awry half way through the ride and with no help in sight, so planning ahead is a great idea. Hopefully you’re more than happy with your clothing and your bike is in good shape.
However, like many cyclists you could really do with a new pair of sunglasses for functionality and fashion. You can have a look around online, but this year it is likely that one particular pair has taken your fancy - the Oakley Jawbone.
If you’re in town so can pop into the local glasses store or opticians and try them out for size. The sales clerk should be able to show you a pair of Oakley Jawbone and you can usually try them on. You can ask about the benefits and features of these Oakley’s, and chances are you will be told about the Switchlock lens changing system, which allows for the lower part of the frame to open and therefore different lenses can be slid in and easily clipped into place. This can probably be demonstrated no problem at all on the pair of Oakley Jawbone glasses you tried on.
A knowledgeable salesperson will probably go on to tell you about the incredible optical clarity and describe how trail objects will be easy to pick out and you shouldn’t suffer from a headache either. If you try them on and note that they stick well to the sides of your head and nose, this is because of the Unobtanium rubber fitted to the Oakley Jawbone glasses, to help keep them in place. Finally, remember to ask about the impressive anti fogging feature that sets the Oakley Jawbones aside from any other competitors in the market place. You may have already decided that the Oakley Jawbone sunglasses were for you, and so it may just be the formality of picking your preferred colour and paying for your glasses. Bring on the summer!

Oakley Jawbone Sunglasses
Back in 1975 there was an English setter owned by a keen motocross enthusiast called James JannardBack in 1975 there was an English setter owned by a keen motocross enthusiast called James Jannard, he padded around the garage whilst James worked hard on a grip substance that would stay tacky even when wet. He finished his product and was looking forward to selling it at motocross events. He still needed a name though and as he tried to think over his dogs incessant barking it came to him – Oakley of course the name of his trusty sidekick who had kept him company as he toiled away on his product.
So the “Oakley Grip” was a hit, but there was a small problem, no one recognised the brand name as it was invariable obscured by the riders hands, so what to do next, something that everyone can see – Jannard introduced the O-Frame in 1980, a pair of goggles with the logo loud and proud on the strap so it couldn’t be missed. By 1984 the brand Oakley was well known. So in 1984 Oakley produced its first pair of sunglasses called the Eyeshade, the glasses were made out of plastic and had removable lenses, they were a huge hit in the cycling world and Tour de France winner Greg LeMond amongst others swore by them.
As the years went on more advancements were made and new models of sunglasses were produced such as the M – Frame series along with a whole host of others.
So what’s the latest from Oakley, well it’s the Oakley Jawbone range, this latest innovation in sunglasses technology within the industry and by professional athletes. Let’s look at the reasons behind this. The Oakley Jawbone boasts a nose piece that pivots; there is a quick release lower jaw that opens simply allowing you to change the lens in no time should you need to, after replacement the lock shuts just as simply. The Oakley Jawbone also boasts a revolutionary frame architecture that actually creates a suspension system for your lenses. Your lenses will virtually float around the orbital space, isolated from compressive stresses for maximum optical clarity, comfort and fit.
Another outstanding feature of the Oakley Jawbone is the Oakley Hydrophobic™; this outstanding feature is a permanent lens coating that actually prevents water from leaving streaks and sheens, great news when cycling in the rain. This lens surface ensures that skin oils, fingerprints and the like can be easily wiped away without leaving a mark, the coating on the lens of Oakley Jawbone are actually anti-static too, so they won’t attract dust and dirt as you travel.
If this wasn’t enough for you then the Oakley Jawbone also boast High Definition Optics® (HDO®) along with XYZ Optics® which provide unbeatable clarity at all angles of vision — even at the sides of lens contours that open peripheral view and optimise protection against sun, wind and side impact. HDO® lenses surpass all ANSI Z87.1 standards for clarity, refraction and prism. So not bad all in all I’m sure you’d agree, so if you’re serious about your sport and serious about your glasses the Oakley Jawbones are a must for you.

One such popular product range is the Oakley Crosshair sunglasses range, which provides fashion and functionality in one cool product. If you want to cause a sensation, wearing Oakley is a great way to start as it is a brand that catches the eye of most people.

Oakley crosshair sunglasses, like so many products in the Oakley range are able to offer 100% UV filtering protection, making them the perfect pair of sunglasses for all consumers. A cheaper pair of sunglasses may have a smaller hit on the wallet but if they do not provide adequate protection to the eyes, they are not really worth wearing.
Another benefit of buying into the Oakley brand is that they are very reliable. Oakley is very proud of their quality and as the company proudly states, 'The essence of the brand is communicated through hundreds of professional and amateur athletes who depend on Oakley products to provide them with the very best while they redefine what is physically possible.' Additionally, all of their products are tested to extreme limits, as Oakley are committed to ensuring that their products can withstand as much as possible, especially when used in sports activities.

With all of this in mind, buying a pair of Oakley sunglasses is definitely good value of money.
The best recommendation you could make about the Oakley Crosshair sunglasses is the fact that some pilots insist on wearing them during flights, and obviously having unimpaired vision is extremely important to them. This means that if this brand of sunglasses is considered good enough for a pilot, then they are likely to be able to do the job for just about anyone. Recommendations from those that wear the product are very important, so when you are thinking about getting a new set of sunglasses, bear this in mind.
There are many reasons why consumers choose to buy branded products and aside from looking cool, knowing that the products are usually built to last is one very good reason. It may be that the designer products are dearer than other comparable products but the brand name is usually followed with a reputation and quality.

Oakley Crosshair Sunglasses for style and quality
Oakley Crosshairs; a brilliant choice
Whether you love skiing or boarding, cycling or sailing you will have inevitable bumped into someone along the way is wearing, or who owns, a pair of Oakley sunglasses. There’s a good reason behind their choice of eyewear.
The story goes that back in 1975 there was an English setter dog owned by a keen motocross enthusiast called James Jannard, he padded around the garage whilst James worked hard on a grip substance that would stay efficient even when wet. James Jannard finished his product and was looking forward to selling it at motocross events. He still needed a name, though, and as he tried to think over his dog’s incessant barking it came to him – Oakley, of course the name of his trusty sidekick who had kept him company as he toiled away on his product.
So the “Oakley Grip” was hit, but there was a small problem, no one recognised the brand name as it was invariable obscured by the riders hands. So what to do next? Something that everyone can see – Jannard introduced the O-Frame in 1980 - a pair of goggles with the logo loud and proud on the strap so it couldn’t be missed. By 1984 the brand Oakley was well known. So in 1984 Oakley produced its first pair of sunglasses called the Eyeshade. The glasses were made out of plastic and had removable lenses, they were a huge hit in the cycling world and Tour de France winner Greg LeMond, amongst others, swore by them.
As the years went on more advancements were made and new models of sunglasses were produced such as the M – Frame series along with a whole host of others. Oakley has recently been involved in a very lucrative deal to become part of a company that sells high fashion eyewear including Ray Ban and Persol. Not bad for an English setter eh?
So what's the latest from Oakley? Well it’s the Oakley Crosshair sunglasses range. This eyewear has been through the same rigorous testing that all of Oakley ranges must go through – there are two tests which involve an object being fired at over 100miles an hour toward the lens and also another whereby a spike is driven into the lens, neither of which should cause the lens to crack or shatter. The Oakley crosshair sunglasses design also boasts UNOBTANIUM(R) - the material that the original Oakley Grip was made of!
So the Oakley crosshair sunglasses style, which is popular with both pilots and cyclists, is a great investment if you are serious about your eyes and getting maximum performance from your eyewear, whilst keeping up with the latest design and technology. The Oakley crosshair sunglasses come in a range of colours and boast the incomparable HDO(R) technology (Oakley’s high definition optics).
To finish, from his garage all those years, Jannard and Oakley have come along way; taking a small project to a billion dollar enterprise is no mean feet. Oakley crosshair sunglasses are just one of the ranges of high spec sunglasses available and Oakley crosshair sunglasses comes highly recommended by pilots to boot.
Oakley sunglasses appeal to everyone
An extensive range of Oakley products are available at Sheinman
Many people are fans of the Oakley brand of sunglasses, and there are many designs to choose from. With such a wide fan base, Oakley’s development from their initial first design back in 1980 of the O Frame to their present day range of sunglasses is no surprise; people buy Oakley glasses because of their style, durability and recognisable brand name. A lot of their glasses even continue to sell well even after the designs have been discontinued and new styles come out.
One of the most popular Oakley designs is the Oakley Crosshair sunglasses – these are available with more than one type of lens and with different coloured frames; pewter, silver and chrome. Oakley Crosshair sunglasses give many different benefits to the wearer; the frame is lightweight due to being made from C-5 alloy, they contain Unobtainium components to increase grip even if the user is perspiring, and they have the Oakley high definition optic lenses which offer extreme clarity. Oakley Crosshair sunglasses are favoured by pilots, as they allow the wearer to see everything with crystal clear definition.
Oakley Crosshair sunglasses are not the only popular design in the Oakley range – Jawbones, Antix and Dangerous are just three of the styles available on the market. Bearing in mind that Oakley’s original market was the sporting world, it is no wonder that the majority of their designs are tailored for this market, but they do also design glasses for the general public also. Every design that Oakley brings out is engineered to look fashionable and appeal to those who are looking to buy a pair of Oakley glasses.
Anyone looking to buy a pair of Oakley Crosshair sunglasses, or indeed, any of the Oakley brands, should make sure they are buying from a reputable retailer. Fake versions are sold on the market to unsuspecting buyers from unscrupulous vendors, sometimes at more than the price of the real glasses themselves. This of course needs to be stopped and people should take care to ensure they are buying the real products.
When looking for a reputable retailer, it is important to get an idea of the company, their history and their experience in selling the glasses and products they have on offer. A lot of opticians have a shop they sell a number of brand name glasses from, and these are available both on the high street and from the Internet. Someone who is buying from a high street store can talk to the vendors first hand, but when buying on the Internet try to check the website out as thoroughly as possible before committing to a purchase. Make sure it is secure, with an about us page and a contact address and phone number. If in doubt at any time, ring the retailer to ask more in depth questions about them and their history, plus the products you are interested in buying. It will become apparent very soon into the conversation if they don’t have full knowledge of what you are asking.

My surprise at the Tour de France
It started out as an innocent comment but I never imagined I would be walking the streets of Paris two days later. I had never been but had always wanted to go. For me it was one of those things you did with your lover not a professional cycling team.
I had heard of the Tour de France as most people have but knew absolutely nothing about cycling, so when out of the blue my friend asked me to come along to host VIP's for a test team it was surreal. I was only required to find my own way to Paris and the rest was covered. As it was only an hour by plane I decided there was no way I could pass up the opportunity. So I searched the Internet for a last minute flight and next thing I knew I was on the plane.
There was excitement in the air as I arrived in Paris. It was very apparent that something big was happening. I remember thinking when I saw someone wearing their Oakley jawbone sunglasses that this was truly the crème de le crème of cycling. The style and grace of the glasses was second to none and were befitting the reputation of a city that was known for style.
I had the Saturday to myself and spent the day doing all the normal tourist things. I got up at 8am and started walking and discovered Paris on foot. Everywhere I went I noticed more people in their Oakley jawbone sunglasses. With the streets being lined with barricades in preparation for the end of the tour people everywhere were showing the signs of excitement sportsmanship. I suppose it was a bit of a catwalk with name brands popping up everywhere from shirts to bicycles and even the Oakley jawbone sunglasses. Each person showing the dedication they had to their choice of brand.
After spending an amazing day sightseeing I was taken out for dinner and then to a pub that was situated on the terrace of a hotel. I watched in amazement as I had the most perfect view of the Eiffel tower from the rooftop. Then to my surprise it began to sparkle like a shiny diamond. It was a spectacle I will never forget and I suppose would have topped a perfect romantic evening. I understood now how this was the city of love. I went to bed that night trying to digest the day I had and prepare myself for hosting the team owners with their guests and families the next day as we watched the tour from the finish line.
The sun was shining as we sat waiting for the cyclists to arrive on the Champs de Elysee. It was bright outside and I now noticed several more people wearing their Oakley jawbone sunglasses. As the test team emerged we all cheered with delight. As the race finished one of the team managed to win the green jersey and the owners were thrilled. As the day came to an end I was approached by one of the team owners. He thanked me for my help and handed me a box. He said it was a token from the team. Inside I found some Oakley Jawbone sunglasses. Now every time I wear them I think of the special weekend I had at the Tour de France.
Oakley won't let you down
Looking Good, Feeling Good. Oakley Won't Let You Down
There is a lot of emphasis on looking your best in today's modern society. Everywhere we turn, magazines and other media are promoting celebrities wearing the latest fashions and trends, thus prompting the public to go out and copy the latest look of fad to hit the high street. However, doing this may become costly, so it is important to look around and see what products are available on the market that accentuate our best features, whilst being affordable and practical at the same time.
One good example of this to use is the concept of wearing sunglasses. Many famous people wear them, as they can provide a good way of blocking the flash of photographer's cameras whilst also preventing the sun from dazzling the eyes. However, as many celebs can afford to spend a lot of money on these items, they wear very expensive brand names that not all of us can emulate. This doesn't mean that other brands aren't as good; one such example is the Oakley range of designer sunglasses.
Oakley designer sunglasses have been around since 1975, and have achieved a huge amount of people who will not buy another brand when Oakley is available. There are many reasons for this; style, quality and price are only three factors. The Oakley designer range of sunglasses is affordable to the general public whilst ensuring they are keeping up with the latest look, something many people require from their accessories.
Oakley are continually evolving their range of glasses; another reason why they are so popular as there is always a wide variety of styles to choose from. Their rise to fame has also been aided by the fact their sunglasses have appeared in quite a few popular films of modern times – X Men, Spider Man and Mission Impossible 2 are amongst these well known titles. Additionally, famous personalities such as Lil' Jon have endorsed the Oakley designer name – Lil Jon is actually a spokesperson for the company.
Unfortunately, because of their popularity, Oakley designer glasses are often copied and counterfeit versions sold as the real thing, often for inflated prices as well. Therefore, it is very important to ensure they are bought from a proper retailer. One way of spotting a fake pair of Oakley glasses is to look on the bridge. The name 'Oakley' is written there, and on fake products this is often spelled as 'Oakey'. This has led to people calling the fake ones a variety of names, including 'Oakeys', 'Fakely's', 'Fauxkleys' and 'Jokeleys'. Whilst these names may produce a smile upon reading, it is no laughing matter to spend a lot of money on something that is not the real product, so care must be taken when buying. Internet buyers and tourists are among the market most commonly affected by such scams.
Real Oakley designer glasses are well worth the money spent on them, as they are well known to be hardwearing and can last a long amount of time. As long as caution is taken when purchasing such sunglasses, many people are very happy and consider them to be money well spent.
Oakley are a well known name of designer sunglasses and eyewear, and have been for many years. Not only in the United Kingdom either, but overseas as well. With a large product range that appeals to a wide variety of people and situations, it is no wonder that Oakley have made a good name for themselves in the eyewear market.
Oakley have an ever revolving product range, which is one of the reasons people keep coming back to buy their products. However, even as new products are brought out, the existing products continue to be favourites with Oakley’s faithful customers.
The Oakley Jawbone pair of sunglasses is one such example of this. These are mainly tailored for the cycling market, to be used in both general and racing situations. This is due to their design and superior optical quality.
Oakley Jawbones are available in a few different designs, but all featuring the core specifications that has made them such a popular choice from the Oakley line up of products. With their Switchlock technology, lens suspension system, high definition optics and the fact they are hydrophobic, it is no wonder people keep coming back for more. The designs available includes photochromic, vented and polarized, but each is as popular as the other with various types of consumer. They can also be custom made for individual specification if required.
It can get a bit technical when looking at what the Oakley Jawbone range consists of and how much goes into their products to make such great glasses; the Switchlock technology, lens suspension system etc all sounds a bit confusing to those who don’t make the glasses, but this is easily rectified. Retailers of Oakley Jawbone glasses will be very pleased to go through the jargon with their customers so they understand it better. In short though, the main benefits of the Oakley Jawbone are that they have a hydrophobic lens coating which helps to minimise and maintain resistance to smudges on the lens, the lenses themselves filter out all UV light, they have interchangeable lenses to adapt to different sport environments and their fit is very precise to the face to ensure they don’t fall off at inopportune moments. In addition to this, they come in different colours and have a range of optional accessories such as second lenses (for alternate light conditions) and cases for safe and easy transporting of the glasses.
If you are considering buying a pair of Oakley glasses, be sure to look around their range fully to find the find sunglasses to suit your needs. They have different styles of different occasions, and therefore one pair may not suit the tasks they will be faced with. Information such as the best type of glasses for different situations can be found both from high street retailers and on the Internet, and it is important that you get some price comparisons as well. Hopefully you will find the right pair of sunglasses at the best price for you in a short space of time.

Dressing to Impress
There are many different brands of glasses and sunglasses on the eyewear market today, with a lot of competition as to which brand is the ‘biggest’ and makes the most sales. Some popular and best selling names on the current market include Oakley, Prada and Tom Ford, and all of these brands have a wide range of styles available.
However, during the financial crisis the UK is currently going through, the aptly named ‘Credit Crunch’, people are finding they have to tie their spending in and watch their wallets to keep an eye on their outgoings. Items like designer branded glasses and sunglasses may have fallen by the wayside if retailers had not decided to ensure their range of cheap designer sunglasses and other products were in keeping with what people were/are willing to spend.
People like to feel like they are wearing expensive and well-made products, and eyewear is no exception. There are many different types of sunglasses and glasses within a designer range; for example Oakley has over 20 different types of sunglasses available. However, prices must be attractive to call in the majority of the customers, and that’s where cheap designer sunglasses ranges come in.
A lot of retailers sell cheap designer sunglasses to shoppers, with or without prescription lenses. Additionally, they are sold by dedicated eye opticians, both online and on the high street. A pair of cheap designer sunglasses will make a great present for someone, depending on their personal tastes, or indeed, a great present for yourself. With the large range of styles and brand names on offer, there should be something to suit everyone’s tastes.
If you need prescription lenses, these can be fitted into a pair of designer named sunglasses, to ensure that when you are wearing them you can still see as perfectly as ever. This is especially important when doing tasks such as driving, where eyesight is crucial to avoid potentially dangerous situations. Sunglasses can also be bought with plain lenses, so both options are available.
Likewise, if a friend or a relative needs prescription lenses but has not yet got around to having a pair of sunglasses made up, or cannot quite afford a pair of designer sunglasses yet, these would make a perfect present for a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary or Christmas. As cheap designer sunglasses can be bought both online and in store, they are relatively easy to get hold of and to keep a secret until the special day.
If you’d like to own a designer brand of glasses/sunglasses, make sure you have a look around and compare prices from the different retailers offering them. A lot of online stores offer discounts and this should be taken in account when buying, as should the range of products available. Retailers that can offer you a wide range of one particular name, such as Oakley, should definitely be in kept in mind for future reference, as they will more than likely have the product you are looking for.

Sunglasses do have a use other than just to make you ‘look cool’. They also should be able to filter the ultra violet radiation that comes on those very bright and sunny days. The suns rays have many different wavelengths that allow us to see and feel heat. However although the suns rays are good for us and they make us feel good, there are parts of the wavelengths in sunlight that is not good for us in the higher doses that we submit ourselves to. Sunglasses Northampton can help us to protect our eyes from those excessive rays that could cause some damage.

Most people wear sunglasses in the summer months but they are useful all year round. Especially when the sun is setting and you are facing in the direction of the sun. However we also need sunglasses in the winter because the snow on the ground reflects a lot of the light and due to the area that is covered and the fact that snow is crystalline in nature the reflections are more intense. As I have said earlier sunglasses are used for many things, but apart from protecting our eyes they also filter the intensity of the light. This makes it easier to see in bright situations especially when we are walking or driving.
Many times when we are driving and concentrating on the conditions of the road ahead, including the traffic in front, behind and to the side of us there are occasional sudden bright reflections that for a second partially blind us. For example we have reflections from the windows of the cars ahead of us or there could be a reflection from a household window that for an instant enters our sight. This partial blinding is definitely not something we need whilst driving. Sunglasses are there to help in ensuring that we can see everything in our range, clearly and with no lapses in our sight.

The windows to the world
Eyes are our windows to the world, and without them we would not be able to appreciate the world around us to such an extent, or to perform certain tasks unaided. It is sometimes strange to think that many of us take our eyes for granted, often until some sort of problem has arisen that needs specific attention. You can help to keep your eyes healthy, and spot potential problems earlier if you attend eye examinations at regular intervals. For those who live in the area, visiting your local optician can help you to keep an eye on your sight!
Some feel that eye tests are only necessary if they have begun to experience issues such as eyestrain, blurred vision or eye discharge. It is certainly sensible to contact your Northampton optician as soon as possible in these cases; though if you feel you are experiencing an emergency eye problem or injury you should visit the A&E department at your local hospital. It is also important not to underestimate the importance of routine checkups; it is advised that adults have an eye exam at least every two years, even if their eyesight appears unchanged. Not only can this identify specific ocular difficulties at an early stage, such as short sightedness, long sightedness or astigmatism, but it can also prove a good way of recognising some other, more general health issues which have been developing without symptoms. Those with conditions such as diabetes should be sure to inform their optician so that they can be given extra tests, such as retinal photography, digital imaging, dilating eye drops or field of vision analysis.
Some fear that going to their Northampton Optician and discovering they need glasses or contact lenses will be expensive, but you should remember that not all frames and lenses need be expensive. Many people are eligible to receive free eye tests on the NHS and some will even qualify for contributions from Social Services. Children under the age of 16 years (or under the age of 19 years if still in full time education) will receive free eye tests, but they are by no means the only ones. Those over 60 years of age, people with diabetes or glaucoma (or with close relatives with glaucoma) and those who receive income support, income based jobseekers allowance, pension credit or family credit are just some others who may have an entitlement. If you are in any doubt, just ask your Northamptonshire optician, who will be able to advise you of your entitlements.
Looking after your eyes at home is also important, taking safety precautions as wearing goggles when performing tasks such as DIY, or in the workplace if advised to do so. Making sure that you are very careful to prevent any potentially harmful substances from coming into contact with eyes is also important. Always rinse or wash your hands thoroughly after handling things such as cleaning products or food – if you do not, you may unwittingly rub your eyes and contaminate them.
It is now considered important for the health of your eyes to always use sunglasses on bright days which are certified to protect your eyes against invisible ultra-violet light. It is even more important for babies and children to use good quality sunglasses as young eyes are even more vulnerable to damage from sunlight. Bear in mind that a hat or cap with a large brim can reduce harmful glare but 50% and is especially essential for babies.
Make sure your family all understand the importance of keeping eyes healthy, and don’t forget that regular eye examinations will minimise any risk!
Sheinman provides eyewear for Plinther!
We were approached recently by a long standing customer who is one of the lucky few people chosen to become a living work of art on Trafalgar Square's fourth plinth. Lynne Scotten has been coming to Sheinman for over twenty years, she's mad about motorbikes and wants to use her hour on the plinth to reflect this; we were only too happy to help her out by supplying a pair of Oakley sunglasses to top off her biker chic!! You can see Lynne's blog here.
"One and Other" is the brain child of Antony Gormley, the famous artist responsible for work such as the Angel of the North and Another Place. This project puts a different member of the public on the plinth every hour, 24 hours a day for 100 days. There are no criteria to satisy to become a plinther, anyone can enter the draw and be selected to take their place in history!! Find out more here.
Sheinman Team enter Dragon Boat Festival 2009
Eye Eye Cap'n take to the water again!
We had a great time competing in the Dragon Boat festival on Sunday 12th July, raising money for the Northants/Warwicks Air Ambulance and Cynthia Specer Hospice in Northampton. It had been a few years since we'd taken part, the last time had been under very wet and cold weather, thankfully it was a beautiful day by the river this year.
There were 11 of us in the boat, 10 rowers and one very brave drummer! We had three heats, all of our races were really closely fought and in our second race we posted one of the fastest times of the day. We narrowly missed out on getting through to the semi-finals by 2 seconds which was disappointing, but made a little easier by the fact that the team that beat us in Heat 3 went on the win the final! It was jolly hard work in the races but we all had a great day and knowing that we were raising money for such fantastic causes made it all the more worthwhile. We had a brilliant support team as well, thanks to Val and Jane for all their hard work on the banks and to all the friends and family who turned out to cheer us on!!
Special thanks to Carlo Meretti and John Berry at Marchon for their generous sponsorship and supply of cool Nike caps and sunglasses.
The event was expertly organized by the Rotary Clubs of Northampton with Gable Events supplying the equipment and helmsmen on the boats
