There isn’t enough space on here for me to get into the whole Oakley clothing sizes thing:D I’ve been pissed about that for quite awhile now and every time I go to my Bunker I give an earfull to my buddy/manager there... frustrating is putting it nicely:( - JP
Giving an earful to store employees isn’t going to do any good. Believe me when I say they all get it, and there is nothing they can do about it. The sizeing decisions are being made by the product teams in Milan Italy.
They went up around 2PM yesterday. Guessing there were more than we thought since they haven't sold out immediately. The Monthly MotoGP edition didn't even last the day. - Dann
I think it’s because a lot of people don’t realize they are there. They just think it’s more clothing. They kind of just snuck the Mumbos into the collection where the MOTOGP the Sunglass is the only thing.
The Transformers spinoff, BumbleBee, looks good. I don’t expect much of it, but the teaser looks cool:
I’m hopeful it performs better than the last two and they realize what people really wanted was to see the classic transformers (bumblebee as a bug, starscream is a fighter jet!) so they try another prequel where Prime is his classic red simitruck vs megatron (of course in the current political climate we won’t get megatron the hand gun. It I’ll take the tank version). Then I want that to do well enough that instead of prequels they end up starting a reboot. Classic version of the transformers looking for energon cubes just like the cartoons.
Gene Simmons has been a longtime friend and fan of Oakley and usually wore the stuff, but most often time he left them on a plane or tour bus or venue..... he went through quite a few pair. Here is is backstage one night wearing a DEVIATION hanging with Dave Grohl.

Yep he has been spotted in Oakley Stores many a time buying a replacement pair for one he left laying around some where. Super nice guy. Same story with Alice Cooper.
As for the Alpha I have only seen it in gray, clear, Prizm Jade Snow, and the Prizm shooting lenses. I think the lack of Polarized options in the Alpha is due to the fact that it's primary use is intended to be tactical and Polarized lenses can mess with some sighting systems.
PRIZM Deep and Salt are the same.
PRIZM Shallow and Fresh are the same.
Slat and Fresh are the old names.
I wouldn't call any of them a gray base but they are neutral in that items stay true color that is the benifet of any prizim lens true color recognition with increased contrast.
PRIZM Maritime is basically a slightly darker Prizm Shallow. For tactical/first response use I would suggest Maritime, better all weather/light condition use. The slightly lighter tint is going to give you better views of fine details. It was developed for Military forces based on water deployments.
