    I feel like that after the Frogskins/Wayfarers were popular in the 80s/early 90s, Oakley came out with much more organic and curved and smooth designs like the New Frogskin and of course the Eye Jacket/Minute/Straight Jacket. Do you think that trend will repeat itself?

    The Holbrook seems slightly curved in that direction.

    I'd say, because of Lux, it would really depend on: Would doing that make money?

    I would say yes since not too far from now the wayfarer look is going to be played out and people will want something stylish that looks interesting, it would appeal to 90s' fans and to new people (if it appealed to people in the 90s why not now?)

    Yeah, ever since Jim left, priorities at Oakley have changed, and not for the better.

    Oakley will never be the same again! Look forward to designs for the masses... Italian style!

    Let's all club in together and buy the company back. I think $4Billion should do the trick.

    That's fine by me, they lose 75% of their business.
