    I went ahead and put on the red ear socks on my X-Squared today. I have a backordered set of red t-shocks coming as well.

    I decided that Ruby with X-Metal was a little too common so I wanted to tweak it a bit.

    One thing I've noticed on the X-Squared that I wish Oakley address is the fact that when the earstems are folded, the tip can scratch the other earstem. See pic below. Kinda wish they did something about that.

    None of mine do that, it looks like the one stem is going in too far.

    I like the red socks! That would look even better if you did some custom + Red lenses.

    It seems to be pretty common on X metals with this type of hinge. I think probably becasue the parts are cast the tolerances are not that great. My others I bought in store and got to pick through some, I think I just got lucky with the 24k. On one of my juliets one stem goes so far in it almost touches the frame.

    yeah mine does that too. probably the mould for the X-metal finished frames was slightly off...

    i notice polished frames seem to have better attention to these details..
