Black Friday And Holiday 2022






Apr 14, 2023 10:47 PM
I received my pair of Red Tiger RJs not too long ago, so the worldwide store and online offerings should be imminent. I was told early May a while back, but no one else was able to really confirm the street date for me. And since I was given a pair, I would imagine it’s not too limited and there will be enough to go around. I suspect it will be available to some wholesale accounts, oakley.com and some O Stores, but we’ll see.

I haven't broken the seal to see what the packaging and contents look like yet, or if the lenses are etched with "Prizm".

I have no idea if Oakley will ultimately be naming them as BXTR Metal or BXTR C5, but the one I was given recently says “BXTR Metal”:

Mar 10, 2023 12:29 AM
Meh, BXTR Metal sounds better than BXTR C5, but neither are all that creative in the first place. I assume they’ll be listed with the SKU number but who knows what Oakley will do:

Mar 8, 2023 7:38 PM
The one with the metal arms is called....BXTR Metal. Same as the HSTN.

Yes, the hanger Eyeshade is indeed the inspiration according to Will Conk.

The Custom Program should have straight stems available in addition to the triggers (non-metal versions).

Balenciaga has some issues lately, but they do some cool things:

I just assumed the RL is this one:

I almost guarantee we are going to see a red tiger racing jacket that will fall under the muzm category - Chattabox23

Yes, soon for the original RJ.

Japan manufactures the best titanium eyewear I've ever had the chance of wearing. For those interested in eyewear and consider it a hobby, this is fun reading:

By now most of you have already seen some of the shoes that'll be released with Junya Watanabe for FW2023:


All ho hum stuff from Oakley and Brain Dead. The real prize from the Junya Watanabe collection will be from Innerraum. Innerraum is known for its futuristic women's bags, but the ballcap they have in their collection for Junya Watanabe looks very cool.

There are many variations on the splatter case. I don’t know if the painter simply half-assed some of them or if he was implementing a different design concept, but there are many that looked so anemic that it seemed there was a shortage of paint:

Then there are others that have a lot more colour on them:

These were painted by Dave “Persue” Ross, a street artist of some notoriety, which makes some of the results even more disappointing. But then again these were a gift with purchase, so meh, you get what you get since it’s free.

Happy new year!

Hot on the heels of JF Rey’s Ludens Mask is Parasite Eyewear’s Arcade. Manufactured using 3D printing, it is another eyewear that’ll make you look like a superhero:

I finally got a chance to watch the film Everything Everywhere All at Once. It seems to be a critical darling, and everyone’s been saying how great and weird it is. I can attest to how weird it is, but once you get through all the ridiculous silly wackiness, it really is a funny movie with a great underlying theme.

Where Oakley comes in is an appearance by the original THUMP. Or at least one of the many REPLICAS of it, complete with flip-up lenses and telescoping earbuds. Still, Oakley gets credit in my eyes:

Merry X-mas, all!

That would be a fun contest. Most of the designers that made cool trophies are no longer with Oakley, but there’re still a couple. The 3D Modeler that did the sculpt for the wolf trophy would win; she is incredibly talented.

“Not common” would be an apt description. I’m sure reps still have a bunch of them in their storage somewhere. They’d probably give you a roll if you know them and asked for it. My rep gave me a few years ago.. I broke 3 rolls and gave most of the coins away, so they shouldn’t be too difficult to find.

As noted in the description, the splatter is suppose to simulate water droplets to represent the water rabbit. Pics stolen off IG from Service O Lens:

It is sold separately. I don’t know if there is a combined pack. The info when I received word of the pairs back in October was in Chinese, so Google translate offered only so much help:

grand introduction

Product description introduction;
In the traditional Chinese calendar of the heavenly stems and earthly branches, 2023 is the year of Guimao in the lunar calendar, and the heavenly stem is Guimao.
The earthly branch is Mao, the five elements of Gui belong to water, Mao is the zodiac rabbit, and the five elements are Nayin gold foil, so it is the symbol of Water Rabbit.
The main color of Oakley is mainly black, so the designer integrated the water drop heart design into the brand color,
Plus bronzing OAKLEY words or O word 1ogo
Put it on the mirror and packaging design, and finally red
The rope bag is used as an embellishment, like receiving a red envelope in the New Year to benefit the market
Same, implying that the dish is full!
