    Guys -I have a pair of Juliets(my first) that I acquired from a local seller. Dumb question-what finish is this?
    Is this "Carbon"? Its kind of a dark grey color?

    No. That's the "X-Metal" finish. That's a factory issued X-Metal/Ruby combo by the looks of it.

    See the o-review link to that frame:

    Nice pickup by the way. I have an X Metal frame in the mail that (hopefully) is tight enough to warrant keeping and put some Emerald lenses in. Its the only X Metal finish I've ever owned so looking forward to it as its a nice finish and a classic in the X Metal family

    I should be arrested for robbery for what I got these for. I had the $99 jawbones from SGH up for sale or trade on Craigslist for either a Mars or a Juliet. A guy I've sold to before emailed me to tell me he had a unused pair of Oakley Mars Michael Jordan Edition-sitting unused in a drawer since 2008-he never wore them ever-they were too small for his head. And he had these Juliets-in at least 95% condition. Unfortunately I sold the Jawbones a couple days earlier, but I did tell him there was one SGH in the state who had 1 pair left. He thanked me and immediately got in his car to make the 100 mile round trip. I emailed him back to ask him how much he would sell the Mars and Juliet for. He said he would sell me BOTH for $160 TOTAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Naturally I met up with him ASAP-best deal I ever had on shades ever.

    My Juliets are Carbon. Love them, very aggressive look. I think next is the very classic X-Metal/Ruby combo, then some time after that I'm going to try XM/+Red.

    Speaking of mine, I need to run a thread on the purchase experience, but I've got a roadtrip today. Maybe I'll get some on the highway pictures once the sun is up.
