As of the date of this press release, Mr. Douglass has not been appointed to a committee of the Board. In connection with his appointment to the Board, Mr. Douglass was granted options to purchase 15,000 shares of the Company's common stock under the Company's 2004 Stock Incentive Plan at a price per share of $3.23.

Mr. Douglass is currently President, Chief Executive Officer and Secretary, of Steakhouse Partners Inc, which operates 23 full-service steakhouse restaurants located in seven states. Mr. Douglass is an experienced merchant banker and business management consultant.

Mr. Douglass has over 30 years of experience in finance and managing public and private companies, including acting as director and/or interim chief executive officer of several companies. Mr. Douglass is a Managing Director of Compass Partners, L.L.C., a merchant bank specializing in restructuring activities. Additionally, Mr. Douglass is a director of Home Director Inc, a structural wiring company.

From July 2002 to May 2003, Mr. Douglass was Chief Operating Officer of ACE Audiovisual Inc, a commercial integrator of audiovisual products. From June 2001 to June 2002, Mr. Douglass was President of Inline Orthodontix, an orthodontic productions distribution company. From October 2000 to August 2001, Mr. Douglass was President and Chief Executive Officer of VisionAmerica Inc, an optometric physicians practice management company.

From August 1998 to May 2001, Mr. Douglass was also President and Chief Executive Officer of Apple Orthodontix Inc, an orthodontic practice management company. Since August 2004, Mr. Douglass has served as Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer of Neocork Technologies Inc.

Mr. Douglass earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from Farleigh Dickinson University in 1970.

Mark Simo, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are saddened that Beaver Theodosakis will not be able to continue serving on our board. As one of our founders, Beaver has been instrumental in the development of Spy. We understand, however, that he has several current business demands that necessitate that he take a less demanding role at Spy at this time.

Nevertheless, we expect Beaver will remain part of the Spy family and we look forward to continuing to have access to Beaver's brand and marketing knowledge and expertise.” On Mr. Douglass' appointment, Mr. Simo said, “We are very pleased to welcome Stone to the Board. Stone is a well qualified and seasoned executive who can add value to the Board. We believe that Stone's experience will be an asset to the Company.”

Mr. Douglass commented, “I am delighted to join Orange 21 Inc's Board of Directors and look forward to contributing to the growth of the Company.”
