    I had this question on Quora pop up the other day.

    Pretty on topic to the forum:

    I won't cross-post every comment made - so check out the original post and answers here:

    Based on your quick and non-contributive reply it seems you did not read my post; just the title.

    I'm not asking a question not am I hoping to post anything new. I simply wanted to share an outside reference to the industry.

    No I read it, i read the first post before you even posted the second. I'm just saying that most of us know. It's still pretty crazy stuff. It's amazing they're allowed to controll such a percentage of the market.

    I buy luxury items because I am attracted to good design - both in beauty and form and also in strength and utility. Consequently, I lean more toward the more innovative of Oakley's designs and have no desire for the "lifestyle" line.
