    I was looking around on the indunets and found out that Jim Jannard had sold Oakley for 2 billion in 2007, but it does not state who currently owns it. I was wondering if anyone on here knew.

    Shade Station Oakley Sunglasses

    Agrred, however Jannard might still be involved. Sometimes when companies are bought out, the owner's stick around and keep and eye on overall operations. Hopefully he will lurk and make sure everything is ok :D

    true, but ever since jannard sold the company and oakley uses out sourcing for their quality control. there's been so many defects for their products that have got in the stores. i have been experiencing this not only for the sunglasses but also in apparels and accessories.

    No, I think it will be no next x-metal series.

    Hardly true, since the X Squared was released after Lux's acquistion of Oakley.

    No need to worry people, Oakley will be just fine. There's good people behind the scenes there.
