    Too many new women's frames, of course, but a couple of unisex ones too. Click the model name links in the first paragraph to see the larger pics and info.

    The 'Big Taco' reminds me a little of a kinda tweaked Montefrio - except perhaps larger.

    Big Taco? Maybe a Pink Taco for the women's line in the near future?

    Forehand looks like the Fringe.

    Odd that the TwentySix 2 isn't a sports frame. It's more like a PlaintiffDispatch 2. I can see this one winning a lot of Aviator-wearing ladies.

    Who is coming up with these names? Garage Rock? Really? I'll save judgement until I see them and they have a chance to grow on me, but I refuse to wear something called 'Garage Rock'.

    Can tweens even afford Oakleys? It seems that's who's being marketed towards.

    Hate to sound like an old man but I'm not impressed with these new offerings at all!

    Evolution as opposed to revolution on the women's frames (but hey, who cares right? haha).

    There's only really the Taco that is interesting (there's that word again!) enough that I would want to see in the flesh.
    (They need to make a woodgrain print one, like the Montefrio.)

    Herbsley, thanks for the link.
    Too bad that the line-up is a miserable Lux homogenation.
    Fail.

    The Big Taco looks like a mish-mash of the worst parts of several different types of frames. The Garage Rock looks like a cross-between the Frogskins and Dispatch II.

    I see a lot of the ladies wearing Oakley's during play, mainly flak jackets, at Wimbledon so I guess the tennis names tie in with that.

    Was so hoping that wouldn't be the final name, but guess it was after all.
