I don't think that Oakley has any good donor lens, it's too big.
I might be wrong. - pastor.elfstrom

Looking at custom from a goggle if you can get the base curve right is probably the best option.

Are the lenses gradient or just looks gradient because of the white background? - HED4JC


A was looking at a picture of something else with a similar background and it was definitely a dark lens, I think the bright white is making it look rose colored.

Looks like JJ is cashing out:

With Hawaii's economic future already not the greatest pre pandemic, now the pause shit with the economy the last two months it's a smart play. He can probably buy them back at the end of the year for 1/3 the price.

I got tagged on the other forum with a question. Some of the earlier M Frame lenses had date codes and other markings under the nose piece. Does anyone know what NTPC means on the lens? I'm thinking some code for lens use? Military, impact or coating code perhaps? - GRFMotorsports

It might have something to do with the clarity of lenses. Back when their marketing talked about Polaric Ellipsoid Geometry and HDO. They had these displays and ads with something similar to the eye chart from the optometrist with their spin on it. So you could look at it through their lenses versus another brand when you were in the store. I'm only guessing on this, not sure.

Back from the dead....


I just spent the last 30-40 reviewing this thread.

Does anyone remember or have a copy of any order sheets or literature with the algae M Frame in it? Curious as to available lenses that were offered. - GRFMotorsports

You looking for that old fold out that used to come with the early 90's frames that had all the nice color photos? One of these?

I just saw a post on instgram about these ( outdoorevasion ) with the wording. "Something new coming" Any updated word on the release of these ?

Also, anyone know why it's called the Kato ? Other than it's just a cool name ? - ooSnip3r


The designer is a comic fan and with the popularity of Marvel movies in the last decade drew inspiration from Bruce Lee's portray of the Kato character from the Green Hornet.

Factory Pilot glove used as part of the new Dune costumes. - Defenderoftheo


I like the integration of Oakley in yet another movie, but skeptical of the remake.

Question on this old thread: when was XYZ optics first introduced? - andr3

Early to mid 90's when it was rolled out to consumers if I recall correctly. Not sure how long in development prior.

So M Frame lenses fit Razor blade frames? That's good to know - HED4JC

Only the New Razor Blades from 2005.

The M-Frame lenses have a V shaped top, to follow the frame curvature.

In New Razor Blade plain color frames, you can't really tell the lens shape difference.
In the matte clear lens like paquit0 's one, you can tell the lens is not going all the way up into the frame.

It gets funnier with vented M-Frame lenses


Is it weird that I think they look amazing with a vented heater - M


No but they both just drove up the used market selling prices for 2005 frames in one day lol. Dear Oakley, another release of the retro blades for non $500 exclusives please.

3 versions? The one Oak posted, the athlete version and what's the third? - yelkao


Athlete version is what Mahomes was wearing with the beak looking noes section.
What Oak posted is the retail (aka normal people can buy) version. Yes there is a 3rd version, but I wont/cant say more. - Defenderoftheo


Can you say if this is going to be an athlete exclusive or possible retail model?

Surprised it's not a vented Sutro after all the modern Eyeshade push they did with the other one.

The ongoing rumor, year 5 or 10 I believe of "for sure this year its coming."

Not that I'd want or look forward to yet another Sutro release, but I would expect a clear Sutro to be released sooner or later. Like on this athlete:

Looks like Emily Batty but she jumped ship to 100% eyewear last year.

Stopped by the local vault. Every one of the lenses here including polar were $20. Pretty good deal on the frames too! - The_Collector

Guess that answers the question if they still running that promo from December. Thanks for the update.

So only the vented ones? Any idea of how many boxes and bags were allotted to each store?

So their newest designer was a 70's baby who watched many of the same shows I did as a kid. A little Captain Power, some Hawkman with a splash of something else thrown in I can't put my finger on just yet. I'm really curious if the nose piece has a function outside of aesthetics.
