Some say Oakley was the best thing to come out of 1975 apart from the film Jaws. Well, we couldn’t possibly comment. Oakley began, as most unexpected greats do, in a garage. Started by a man called James Jannard, the designer launched with what he described as The Oakley Grip, designed for motorcycle equipment. From here, he moved on to producing all manner of sports equipment like shin guards, grips, BMX goggles and number plates, of all things.
By the 1980s, Oakley was a household name among the sporting community, and his famous O-frame for goggles and glasses is still in use today. Jannard’s innovation has helped sportspeople all over the world to perform to their fullest without their glasses getting them in a twist. (And if you’re not a sports-inclined, trust us, this is an occupational hazard!).
Today, Oakley is a global brand that’s headquartered on a ranch in California. It’s THE choice for your sportswear needs. So, fancy yourself a budding sportsperson with optical requirements? This includes sofa-dwellers with aspirations to smash their personal best in a Netflix marathon. This could be the designer for you!
