This started out as a single X-Metal/Black Iridium Juliet, bought brand new in 2006. After a few years of wearing, I went to the interwebs searching for ways to fix the extremely loose nosebridge. Lo and behold, i stumble across Oakley Forum. I lurked for about a year or so, then made an account and contacted the X-Man for a tuneup. And then it went downhill from there, picking up steam the past couple of years. Just want to put a disclaimer to anyone thinking about collecting (original) X-Metals: its a slippery slope. My wallet hates me sometimes, but damn if these things are the most badass eyewear on the planet, and it ain't close! Many of these pieces came from members here. Others via an opportune bid on the bay. Thanks for looking!

Thanks for looking folks and hope you guys enjoy as much as I have enjoyed browsing other folks' collections.
