    I remember seeing a YouTube video - might have been BAPD actually - where he'd bought a kitchen paper towel holder which appeared to have been 'inspired' by the Oakley Icon.

    This got me thinking, has anyone else bought anything that kinda looks like Oakley stuff, but isn't?
    I don't mean total copies of Oakley stuff like fakes of sunglasses, so don't post that, cos it's poo.
    I mean obscure stuff like the paper towel holder that just looks Oakley-esque but without copying anything in Oakley's range.

    My example below - my "Oakley" Ted Baker tie . . . .

    Anyone else got anything else?
    Or indeed, anyone else know what I'm talking about!? haha

    I would like to see something that determines the effect/impact of the Oakley Icon. Its common knowledge that the Nike Swoosh is the most recognizable logo in the world...and as such it carries a ton of meaning with it, but I've never seen anything that actually explores the recognizability of the Icon. I do know that at the time Jim sold the company, it had been determined Oakley was one of the two most recognizable companies in the world (the other being Nike).

    Another obvious one. The Spyker C8.

    Quite a pretty car.
    Oh, and clearly designed complete with huge Oakley icons.
