    Got a chance to check out some of the new release dropping 10/1.
    IMO it was slightly underwhelming but i'm sure everyone will find a few pieces
    their interested in. To me Oakley keeps coming out with too many "wayfarer" type
    suns and they all end up looking similar or a hybrid of 2 styles.

    Latch
    Catalyst
    Flak 2.0
    M2 frame xl
    Triggerman
    some new frogskins
    and a couple TL designs.

    Got a pic of one of the styles called Triggerman that seemed the most intriguing as it's supposed to be
    "inspired" from x-metal but in a lightweight Omatter material. Design seems there but
    interested in fit. Guessing the style also has those unobtanium nosepads that are most of the new
    active styles.

    Can't wait. What's your guys thoughts on this style?

    Interesting photo. Where did you source it? It looks like an O-Matter version of the Badman. It seems that the fit would be the same. I'll be watching out for this one. :popcorn::popcorn::popcorn:

    thanks for the preview

    the triggerman looks like it was inspired from an 'x-metal' that was inspired from an x-metal further watering down the legacy....

    A reliable source. It's coming out in like 6 Skus I wanna say. Out of al the release think this is the only style that appeals to me.

    Yeah it's your everyday x-metal inspired pair. So your real x-metals can stay in your showcase most of the time. Still not the same..

    Give me an exact replica of the Juliet in O-matter even and I'll start paying attention. And yes, I know of the crappy knock-offs, I don't want to put whatever the hell they are made of anywhere near my face, thanks very much!

    That said, I quite like the look of these.

    It is actually coming out in 7 SKU's. One of which is a new lens color option they are releasing. Not sure if that colorway is limited edition yet though. If you want to know the colorways let me know and ill throw them up here
