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?

Fully agreed!!!

The older Oakley profile images were excellent at showing off the frames at a first glance. These new images make it so much harder to browse through. I don't see how these newer images somehow help a newer, less familiar customer navigate their products and tell the difference between them. Seems much more of a hindrance than a help.

Ahhh! I forgot about those! LOL!

Oh well, I'm still cheering for the splatter to go over well nonetheless. The more they experiment, the more likely they will land on something I can get in on. And along the way, others can grab something cool too!

Correct me if I am wrong, but it seems the frame color & splatter isn't from paint, but rather embedded into the o-matter, right?

I am not particularly fond of this collection, but I couldn't help to notice how much Oakley is moving away from paint and more toward dyed o-matter for frames. It does seem to limit the amount of colors and textures that can be done on a frame, at least for now, but it also makes for a very durable finish since there is nothing on the surface to wear down or chip off. Frame options like this splatter and the more recent green & black camo colors indicate they are getting better with this method and I am pretty interested in seeing how far this goes. Who knows, they may yet figure out how to do the equivalent of an FMJ finish without using any paint.

I would offer it may be the oversaturation of the uninspired models rather than a lack of inspiration. There have been some really cool new items released in recent years, namely the Flight Jacket (I see a hint of a Star Trek style spaceship from the side profile) as well as the more functional Flak 2.0, Radar EV and Jawbreaker (the contoured venting was long overdue and very welcome, I think).

On the other hand, the seemingly endless slew of lifestyle and active models with painfully similar features and colors may have overbalanced what would have otherwise been solid product lines. I know they can't just go back to the days when they only had ten models available at a time, so it's just something I have to live with. But it does help to create the perception of lack of inspiration when only one model in a release seems to stand out in its own right.

At the same time though, I think they should celebrate their heritage every so often, as many other brands and companies tend to do. The only real question would be how Oakley chooses to present these offerings, as myself and many others here get the impression these releases are seen as less of a celebratory addition and more of a knee-jerk reaction to sales. The better they present the releases, and the more they try to out-do the older colorways, the better the new products will be seen.

Wow! I guess I did come off sounding a little insane there! I should probably clarify ... I keep the sticker TYPES together in their own little bags - The Prizm Line gets one, The Polarized "P" has their own, The New Polar/RX Checkbox, etc ... not each little one individually.

The point I guess was to say I do save them. Not sure for what yet but yeah, I can't seem to bring myself to throw any of them away. Same with the warranty & lens inserts.

Oops. Lol!

Every one of my stickers go into a tiny individual bag and then stored in a repurposed earsock box I keep for just the stickers.

Those look pretty sweet. The "Lighning" hat kinda has a Metallica 1984 vibe to it.
