I don’t recall if there’s been a thread on here about this, but I’ll start one anyway.

What products did you initially dislike but learned to like as time went on?

For me:

1. C Six: I mostly didn’t like the C Six when it was first introduced. I’ve always liked the engineering aspect to it but didn’t like to aesthetics of it. I’ve learned to appreciate it as time went on. I still wouldn’t wear it, but I do appreciate its place in Oakley history and as a collectible in the hobby.
2. M Frame/Blade/Razor Blade: I previously didn’t appreciate the M Frame/Blade/Razor Blades, which is odd since the first Oakley eyewear I ever got (as hand-me-downs in the late ‘80s) was the Blades. Still, like the C Six, I’ve learned to appreciate their form as art, their high performance functionality, and their place in Oakley history.
3. Watches: I grew up loving mechanical watches. When message boards hit the big time in the ‘90s and more and more people started discussing all ranges of topics, I kinda developed the snobbery that comes along with the hobby as well (ie. Anything without mechanical movements are trash). I’ve always thought Oakley’s watches are novelty watches; great for the brand collectors but not for the real enthusiast. I still think that, but I’ve learned to love how cool and absolutely unique Oakley watches are even if they are not collector grade timepieces.
4. Frogskins: A clone of the Wayfarer, I only developed a love of them when they got re-issued in 2007. While I don’t find them interesting as collectibles anymore, I think they look great on most people and I might even wear a pair if the mood strikes every so often.

Good thread Oak. I'm going to have to think about this for a little bit and maybe post my own list.

Yep, I'm diggin the Matte Clear/Prizm Low Light

I'm surprised there wasn't a Matte Clear Gascan already produced before now. Clear - yes, Matte Clear - no.

I'm SOOO far behind on the MCU timeline it's ridiculous. I almost avoid this thread because of it. With ever new Marvel movie being released - now being Captain Marvel - I keep telling myself I'll catch up before it's released. HA! That being said, I've only seen: Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Hulk and Guardians of the Galaxy. I keep putting it off so I can watch them "properly" - since I have the phase 1 and phase 2 box sets. Never seem to find the time though.

I'm just happy that it's not a recast of the original. I don't mind if something doesn't hit the mark if it's trying something new. That's how things evolve. - Dann

It is nice to see them trying to evolve a previous design again instead of just borrowing the name. Matte Clear for me.

Awesome mask!

Yeah, it’s kind of odd to me but obviously people are into it.

Thanks Oak I really appreciate that!!!

Yeah, hopefully I get the office done rather sooner than later.

Finally picked one of these up. I missed it when it was initially released so I paid a little over retail for it but it's worth it. Hopefully this year I'll actually display it. I’m planning on redoing the office since I’m working from home now and trying to start my own design business. It’ll probably be part of that project.

If anyone is looking for graphic design, branding, art direction let me know.
