Thank you my friend.

I hope you don't mind, I've moved this to the vintage section and made it a sticky to serve as an excellent research tool for those looking for info on the SD.

You know you're elite and in a world of your own when regulation grooming standard fly out the window! If these guys had access to Oakleys back then they would have been wearing them!
