Here’s my Morpheus glasses I bought. I was sitting one day thinking man it been had Oakley made a pair like this. Well, it hit me so I got someone to listen to my idea and he loved it.

Morpheus #0154/3000 now has Prizm Ruby Polarized lenses. Morpheus shades on Steroids.

Looks like we're serial number neighbors. I got #155 of the Morpheus. Beautiful custom, BTW!

Clear
and
Smoke

Clear is Tour de France?

- O_taj1242


Yes, the matte clear is the TDF 2022 Kato. There will also be a matte clear Jawbreaker as part of TDF 2022 as well (with black lower jaw and Prizm Road Black lens). Others as part of the line include Sutro Lite and Holbrook, but they aren't matte clear frames like the Kato and JBr.

They weren't given out at one single event. Disruptive by Design was a whole campaign that lasted a while and so the dog tags were given out for a variety of reasons. Employees got them; some of the general public who visited HQ got them; athletes got them (in various colours other than pewter including gold, silver, bronze). In fact, there's an athlete pack with sunglasses, dog tags and grips that were given to athletes.

Anyone a fan of “vintage” cell phones? I bring this up here because it was discussed on this page and the previous. I’m getting back into them, and I’m constantly reminded of HOW FUN PHONES USED TO BE.

I do draw some parallels between what fans are complaining about with Oakley’s current design language and the current smart phone market. Most popular smart phones look very much the same; they’re simply slabs with a touch screen in front, whether an iPhone, Galaxy or Pixel. Not very inspired IMO (though the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 and Monohm's Runcible are pretty slick).

Have a look at phones from 10-20 years back and you will see some wacky, crazy, fun designs. Things slid open, things popped open, things flipped around, screens turned around, unique shapes of all sorts were abundant, etc. Such cool unique stuff.

But other than myself and a relatively small number of avid collectors, no one really wants that shit any more. The simple, clean smart phone design and ever increasing functionality is popular and what most everyone want. Much like the current Oakley market.

Oh well.

O_taj1242, looks like the Bugs glasses are limited to 200. The booklet that comes with the glasses number them (picture was pulled off of IG):



The Morpheus is numbered to 3,000. I'm trying to find out the others, but I would expect them to be in the 200 or less range as well since most of them are pretty expensive.

Here is another one I find interesting. The guy in the pic is Jerome Mage, the founder of the eyewear industry's hottest brand in the last few years, Jacques Marie Mage. He was also the Creative Director for Spy Optics in the '90s and his design company has done work for Arnette, anon, Burton and many other action sports brands (as well as founder of MARCH LA.B, a French watch brand).

Here he is wearing a vintage Eyeshade:

Current UFC LW champ Charles Oliveira wearing the XS. Good to see a champ wearing Oakley during promotional activities; a lot of other fight champs seem to prefer the DITA Mach One (which is a also an excellent choice):

The Matrix stuff is up for sale now:

https://iwearbritain.com/collections/the-matrix-resurrections-collection

The Morpheus one is amazingly cheap (shipping from this stockist is probably pretty crazy, though, since it's coming from the UK). The ones Blinde Design put out in 2003 were something like $300 but were made out of Ti. The Neo ones are interesting and so are the Bugs. I will probably pick up the Morpheus ones once they hit North American shores.

The Solefly Radar EV Path is now available. Pretty cool finish on them. If I was a bigger Radar EV fan, I'd be all over it:

I'm glad they released it online at a decent hour this time, unlike with the Xeus.

Just a note about the Frogskin Ti:

OO6044M-01 is the Japanese release limited to 5 "prototypes" for sale in Japan during the Olymmpics. Darker shade of frame coating with Prizm Black lens. ¥242000 sale price.

OO6044-01 is the regular, limited release that was recently available. Lighter frame colour with Prizm Black Polarized. $410 sale price.

Wanted to note this because the entry in the database has a mix/match of both of these colourways, and I didn't want to add a new entry or modify the current entry to untangle it in the event I do something wrong.

Good, creative stuff come from the independents these days:

JF Rey x Hideo Kojima
For the video game fans comes a real life version of the Ludens mask from Kojima's Death Stranding game. € 499 and supposedly limited to 888 pieces (which is staggeringly high production #, IMO).

Matrix: Resurrections by TD Tom Davies
TD Tom Davies created all the eyewear for the new Matrix movie (previously by Richard Walker's Blinde Design) and consumer versions will be available soon. I'm looking forward to the Morpheus:



Jacques Marie Mage Kirby Box
JMM has released a sunglass case made of sterling silver as part of its Last Frontier collection. A mere $4,750 for this piece of jewelry:

You should see most of the Spring/Summer stuff get posted in the next month or so. Nothing too interesting to me but you'll see:

-A reissue of a very vintage model. No, it's not an X-metal, but it is what everyone has heard about and is expecting
-A new Wire
-A current style made in a different material
-A Sutro Lite with a new lens shape

Amongst other stuff.

I commend the distribution of the Xeus. While oakley.com was a shitshow like it always is, the other distribution channels was excellent. Well allocated distribution amongst the regions and stores is commendable.

The second and third episodes are good. The first one was solid as well.

The only thing that stops scalpers is not paying their crazy prices. Otherwise, nothing stops them for charging high prices. For the Xeus, there's 500 of these things out there. Not all that small a number for the size of the collector base. Like the Robot Store Front, HQ statue, and metalworks carbon stuff, these will be around for a bit. Perhaps you'll have to pay a bit of a premium if you miss it in stores and online, but don't overpay for these things.

I haven’t opened the shrink wrap on my copy yet so not sure which quote I got, but there are 4 quotes:

I’m the best at what I do
Bub, you just signed your death warrant
Welcome to the X-men - hope you survive the experience

Starting a thread away from the New Release thread so it'll be easier to search for information in the future.
