    In those days I was taking a look on the O official site. So, I compared some models like Sliver, Chainlink, Valve, Turbine, Triggerman, and many others. Different names, same style. All squared or almost.
    I remember times when originality was a dictate for and from Oakley.
    Eye Jackets, Straight Jackets, Topcoats, Splice, Scar, Twenty, Racing Jacket, Minute, Moon and Mars, and many others. All differents. Any glasses had a different style, aggressive someones, smooth style others.
    Honestly I miss a lot that style, hoping for the next range of sunglasses they will resume something from the past.
    What do you think about?

    Regard from Italy.

    I fully agree with you. To me, many of the older models were much more progressive and hardcore in their design. Now, half of Oakley's products look like something you will find in the local hipster bar

    This is why I pay x 100s for glasses I should/could have bought years ago at a fraction of the price. The old Oakley is best Oakley.

    All things come back eventually. The cycle of fashion and couture takes time. There are a lot of folks living in the past. I'm one of them. Hold onto your stuff because it will be trendy again as long as you live long enough. No one can deny that the golden age of the automobile was the 50's. Early model A and t bucket roadsters continue to be customized or restored but the height of the industry was big tail fins and chrome. We will never see that era again though. Preserve the time when Oakley was in its prime. It was and still is the golden age of design. Be glad that you experienced it even if only for a short time.
