The creation of the Oakley brand dates back to 1975. At the origin of this adventure, an American designer named Jim Jannard. The latter is known to be the owner of a modern Stonehenge with breathtaking architecture in Los Angeles. However, his most singular feat is undoubtedly Oakley. It is a brand today operated by the Italian eyewear maker Luxottica. It sounds surprising, but the name Oakley has nothing to do with the world of sports glasses. Jannard took this name from his dog, who used to sleep at the foot of an oak tree. Originally, we heard "Oak-ley".
