    Hello I first got into Oakley in the late 90s right when they hit their sweet spot with their jacket line like the [new] Straight Jacket and Minute etc (though I would have loved a pair of Eye Jackets). I loved the super smooth look and futuristic design.

    Now, they have some 'ok' stuff but it's mostly all SQUARE and have weird designs on the side, very busy. Do you think they'll eventually rerelease some of their classic designs?

    Anyone have news on the [new] Straight Jacket III or Minute 3.0?

    I think Dr.Chop summed it up the best when he posted this in the X-Metal discussion forum a while back:

    You may or may not agree with his statement, but I know it's how lot of folks see things nowadays.

    The old styles are gone forever... They left with Jim.
    Now that Lux owns Oakley the styles are not so "over the top"....

    Thanks!!

    I still have my blue Straight Jackets and as much as I love them I can't bear to wear them anymore after they survived this long, they're a collectable to me now.

    Just speculation on my part.

    Where can I read more about the history, who is this Jim guy etc?

    Jim was just some nobody that worked at Oakley for a few years in the mid 90's. He was really old but was kind of like a grandfather to the designers, so they kept him around. He died years later.
