Available at Oakley Store SF. Lucky it has a correctly labeled box.

I've had the Ruby in the basket for like one hour, hesitating if that was worth it. Finally pulled the trigger and ... too late.

BTW, Why in the hell are those items so expensive ?! I might have missed the turning point where Oakley price tags reached those numbers ...
Very disappointed on this. - BiGCoB


The glasses or everything? The Palace station collab Mumbos were in the $250 range at retail.

So I wonder if this means they had/have intentions of doing a low light prizm lens or a true clear that got scraped or down the line. Or someone really screwed up that bad.

I'm thinking there will be a regular release down the line.

Well... I picked both mine up today and I get to return the Matte Clear/Prizm Ruby already. Scratches in both corners of the lens and a shadow is left behind from the Prizm sticker. Quality control at Oakley fucking blows.

Make them call Oakley, between promos, execs and "just in case" there has to be extras around for this kind of thing.

Apparel, mainly. I love the red and grey long sleeve jersey, but 70$ - 85CHF ...
ARGH. It's killing me

My box had "clear" for the lens description and I too had a scratch on the lens.

As much as I’d like to keep it I am returning mine to the store. I’m not paying money for something that comes like this. Really am disappointed in Oakley. I will be keeping the black ones however. Those were good to go!

My Matte Clear/Prizm Ruby was also mis-labeled and said Clear Lens. That is very frustrating that yours had scratches.

No doubt! When stuff comes out like this I usually go the day of so I can look things over. I didn’t this time due to moving and I was left with only 1 of each. Another lesson learned in the O collecting world:)

I ordered mine from Oakley online, so we see what happens. I am going to contact them and see what they have to say.

Same problem for me, box labelled Clear, and stain of the stickers on the lens... I will contact Oakley Europe with pictures for this problem.

Maybe CC Oakley US as well so more sources are getting hit with this feedback and it's not an "isolated incident."

I ordered the Dino tee in XXL. I'm 255 pounds, and the shirt is more like a Large. Very disappointing.

I sent a message to Brian Takumi just to relate to anyone that might care (if there are any people that care), and he said that is all handled out of Europe.

The disturbing part was that one of the Tag Lines on the website is "oversized fit"

That's COMPLETELY frustrating! I was wondering if items from this collection would fit. I know it was mentioned earlier it was European sizing. That didn't give me much hope.

I love coaches jackets and would really like to get this one...

...but the odds of it fitting are slim. LOL. Pun intended. The other frustrating thing is the quantities available. I know this isn't a new issue or subject especially when it relates to the special capsule collections. But when you go to o.com - because online is pretty much someone's only or best chance of finding and buying something - and the sizes and/or colors are sold out almost immediately that's ridiculous. I have noticed sometimes the sizes and colors become available later but not always. Why put something online when it's already sold-out? Some of the high prices, slim fit and lack of availability makes me wonder why I even look at some of the new stuff when it does get released. Again, completely frustrating and almost pointless.

Also the other new coaches jackets look like they fit even smaller than the previously released ones and the TNP Dino version...

I missed the post from Brandon saying European sizing. That would have saved me some frustration.

Oh the frustration.
Between European sizing and US sizing, you'll never know what you'll get. It makes online purchase virtually impossible.

I hear ya. The graphic is really cool so it's still a cool piece of AFA to have though.

Yep, for sure.

I'm no expert on logistics but it still confuses me how limited o.com seems to be at time as compared to what I hear some of the O stores seem to get. I would think the web site would be the mecca, the main hub for all products. Can't find it in store? Go to the website. Maybe someone with better knowledge and/or a better memory than myself can address that - because I'm sure it's been brought up before and it's slipping my mind.

Maybe I should move this comment to a different thread. I don't mean to hijack this one.
