Very pleasantly surprised with the Dibs. While very different than the rest of the label's wraparound offerings, it's still a quintessential surf style that is neither uber modern, nor throwback. The frame is oversized, but remains lightweight and very flexible. Unique to the brand, the Dibs combines a classic squared-off profile and a modest lens width and height, with a flattering angular nose bridge that should play nicely with a wide variety of face shapes. Optical quality seems on point - the red mirrored lenses are undeniably badass. Struggled at first changing out the custom arm "sleeves," but once you get the hang of where you're supposed to push and how you're supposed to pull, you'll fear less about snapping off your hinges. Arnette should really sell the ACES pieces separately as the customization is pretty intuitive and unique, but at the moment, you're only able to get a spare pair with each sunny purchase.
* made in Italy, if you're into that sort of thing
