    Yo bros, i dont know if the same thread already existed but i was wondering on how Oakley name their pairs... we have the "law pairs" - warden, plaintiff, jury; planetary pairs such as the mars and the moon; we also have the behave, beckon, believe, betray pairs; etc... so if could name a line of oakleys what would it be? me maybe like the dinosaur line like - raptor and trex!:D

    Well there is no fact behind this but I would guess:

    "Law" pairs are named that because of 70s-80s cop shows used the aviator style glasses

    Mars and moon because they are perfectly round (like the planet and the moon

    And the womens pairs because they are seductive terms and sex sells

    They did not know what to name a pair of sunglasses so they labeled it "unknown" for the mean time. Down the line somewhere they forgot to put a name on it and someone produced it with the label "unknown".

    Source came from an Oakley employee.

    Jupiter is a frog, not a planet.

    Well, it IS a planet, but in this instance the pair (being in the Frogskin family) is named after a frog.
