Continue digging through the archives of dcj.amaltd.com/oakley (yeah remember that long URL) and found a few gems from 2004-2005








Will post more as I find them.

I've always wanted one of those concrete waterfall displays. Should've jumped on the opportunities when i had them.

If you had a plaque and some sheet metal you could bend, I bet they wouldn't be too hard to make.

It's a knockoff. I forget the name, but they were plentiful in 2005.

I figured it was maybe some prototype design. I know I've had the thought before, but sometimes the knockoffs get more creative than Oakley, haha, too bad the quality of knockoffs of course suck. Is that fake classic +red then? Because that looks real nice. I'm a fan of the classic +red that changes sharply from red to burple over the modern +red which is a more muddy red/burple. If those are fake that's pretty good.

Looks like a really shallow lens, so the color changes wouldn't be as pronounced. Probably the typical rainbow mirror that many fakes have, but the curvature shows it off in a better way.

If you look at the early sketches for the OTT, they actually look more like this than the final result.

Another item I should've bought when I had the chance. Would've made a great display item, especially at $20-30.

The concrete wouldn't be that hard to all u need is some wood " may be a 8' 1x 6 pine and a table saw and a few screws only problem I see is the concrete would be brittle and heavy u couldn't just just baged concrete u would need to adjust the mix and maybe some chicken wire for the lattice it really wouldn't be that hard

Never knew they had a "Fandango OTT". LOL. Classic.

Pre-mixed grout would probably be better. Lighter and since it's a polymer with sand, it wouldn't be as prone to breakage.

Rey informed me that it was called the Skullvision.

Won't anymore. It has been taken down and is now a relic on HQ's landscape.

I display that Fandango OTT alongside my Oakley OTTs just to show what Oakley design has inspired, in positive ways.
If those guys had worked something out, it might've been sold under the Oakley brand and not be a Fandango.

Yeah, it was really just an Oakley style inspired pair of glasses, rather than a true knock-off. I don't think anyone actually bought one here from what I remember, but I'm kicking myself now.
