    Anyone else miss the Eye Jackets and the Eye Jacket 3.0s? What about the original Minutes or XXs?

    Nostalgia is a powerful emotion but I do reckon the older Oakleys (models prior to the 2005 gascan) were at the leading edge. these days I think most of the square Oakleys are at the trailing edge and seem to be following the square trend not setting a new one.

    I had the original Straight Jacket in the 90's but misplaced them over the years =/

    Spending $100 on a pair of sunglasses back then was quite the luxury

    Oh yes, I have some and I miss some.
    If in new condition they go $100+

    Nope.

    I miss many things. But not those particularly.

    Few years back I picked up a new XX black polarized in a Sunglasshut outlet. Think I paid 130 for them. I was amazed Oakley kept them around in outlets as they were off the website. Either my first, or second pair was a crystal black polarized fire. Bought the black pair for nostalgia.

    Some of my favorites and a LARGE part of my collection...

    I am waiting for them to re-release some of these original styles as it seems they are out of innovative ideas on everything but watches these days....

    Seriously??

    I have always wondered how you could tell they are the actual FMJ White or if they are just Pearl... Is there a way to differ?
