We all need some good sunnies, and who better to drive your style than Jamie Thomas. That’s why OTIS has signed him up with a “multi-year partnership.”

“My idea of a perfect collaboration is two forces coming together to create a delicate mixture of quality, style, purpose and passion,” continues Jamie. “I feel that we accomplished that with Overkill and I’m pleased to present the first of hopefully many collections to come.”

And yes, they look good, and will be available at retail March 1, 2022. Please follow the jump for the new collection and the official word from OTIS.

OTIS and Jamie Thomas launch multi-year partnership with new signature product capsule.

There are some things that never go out of style. Blue jeans and a white tee. Fresh white shoes. Iconic, black sunglasses. Skateboarding legend Jamie Thomas, known for his fearless style and pursuit of perfection has teamed up with OTIS on a multi-year partnership to create a new line of signature eyewear. Combining OTIS’s timeless frames with scratch-resistant mineral glass lenses and Jamie’s signature style, the OVERKILL Collaboration breathes new life into OTIS’s classic eyewear.

“It was a real honor to have an icon like Jamie approach us and ask to work together,” says Lucy Martino, Brand & Product Manager at OTIS. “He has a really keen eye and insight when it comes to design, so to have Jamie add his spin on some of our most popular styles was amazing.”

“My idea of a perfect collaboration is two forces coming together to create a delicate mixture of quality, style, purpose and passion,” continues Jamie. “I feel that we accomplished that with Overkill and I’m pleased to present the first of hopefully many collections to come.”

Featuring three of OTIS’s essential designs, each pair of glasses comes in a matte black finish, with Jamie’s signature cross and other key accents. They’re also packed in a unique box and case, created to mark the special nature of the release. Styles in the collaboration include retro-inspired Summer of 67, bold frame Panorama, and OTIS crowd-favorite Omar.

OTIS Eyewear and Jamie will be hitting the road next week for three separate launch events at Roark Flagship Locations, in San Diego (2/22), Los Angeles (2/24) and Berkeley on 2/26. Join us to celebrate the Overkill Collection in-person, with free drinks, signed prints, exclusive product and more.

The collection will be available globally at retail stores and online starting March 1st.
