    Hi, it was nice to see this USA MADE mark on my Sapphire Turbine Rotors! I hope more Oakleys return to being made in the USA. Has anyone else come across this mark on their sunnies?

    but that is a pretty old model, isn't it?

    Also, i think the "made" part could mean just assembled in the US from foreign parts. They have no shame, and can twist words and meanings to their liking.
    Fellow "experts", Please correct me if wrong

    “Designed” in the USA.

    Exactly. Most say designed in the USA.

    Maybe they are assembled here again? The parts are made from the Finest Chinese plastic money can buy!!!!

    There were a couple of threads on this already. A good example is the FLAK 2.0 XLs. Inside the nose bridge rhey would have those new markings." Made in USA" and "Assembled in USA" denote different content /assembly source.

    @Tomtucker Turbine Rotors aren't really an an old model. The USA made marking using that font is fairly recent too.

    But who really knows what goes on in there?

    Big Oakley sign at the front, all empty inside.
    Or maybe donkey and midget stripper shows.

    I think “USA Made” is meaningless. From what I know, the FTC standard applies to “Made in USA”, which can only used if there is none or negligible foreign content.

    “Assembled in the USA” is all I have.

    Yup. Another defined, but lower than “Made in USA”, standard.
