I am just very very obsessive about a chosen few particular styles of a single brand of eyewear. Is the court-appointed psychiatrist really necessary?

Interesting! I figured it wouldn't be an easy answer; just from judging by the database it looks as though when Oakley first adopted the special edition concept they kinda overloaded on the different editions in the first couple of years, almost as if they came out all at once before finally normalizing.

I think it's a good bet that whatever edition my co-worker was referring to, if it does indeed exist, may just be one of the many "one-off's" floating around. Not that he's a bad guy or anything like that; he just seemed so confident about this thing at the time that I second guessed myself. That's why that criteria I laid out was so specific, to draw that demarcation line so as not to get lost in the seemingly endless deluge of one-off's. But that is probably the case here, and I don't necessarily fault him for assuming.

Still tho - I'm not sure why I didn't think about Agassi at the time! LOL! That's a great candidate, right? It's a good bet there are at least several dozen pairs that fans probably attribute directly to him, even if there was never an official SE.

I do appreciate the input, Oak! Thanks.

Probably should have asked this before getting into a debate with a self-proclaimed Oakley expert at work ....

Anyone know what the first "Official" special edition eyewear was? And I don't mean OPDs, unreleased prototypes, athlete-only LEs, or any of that other noise; I mean an official production special edition with the SE name on the box (stickers count if it happens to be in the pre-cool box era)

Anyone know the model and the year was it released? I got it in my head the first ones were the Ducati Minute & New Straight Jacket. Those seem correct, but also released during a time when a lot of other stuff was floating around, and I guess it could be kinda hard to tell.

My co-worker seems to think there was an athelete or team specific M-Frame released in the mid-1990s (he couldn't say who specifically tho - figures!) Looked through the database but didn't come across anything of note; of course, the M-Frame section is so vast yet sparsely filled I could have rolled right over it and not noticed.

So what you all think? Any validity to that? Probably a good piece of Oakley trivia there if I can find it.

I thought it was just me, but I found myself getting wrapped up at work more and having less and less free time. Either I was actually busier or maybe my mind was just slipping at my old age, but a lot of stuff I was keeping up with pretty well have now fallen by the wayside.
