    I'm trying to find a pair of glasses to add to my penny's and Juliets, something I bit more "mature." I've narrowed it down to the following:

    Carbon Blades - prizim lens - polarized
    Carbon shift - Saphire lens
    Tinfoil Carbon - positive red
    Tinfoil Carbon - black, non polarized

    What are your thoughts? I lIke the Carbon blades, but also like the other pairs I mentioned. The Carbon shift sort of have that same "sporty feel" of my Juliets / penny's and I'm wanting somethings different. I also do like the tinfoil Carbon with the positive red as well.

    Open to opinions.

    I have no experience with any of those except the Carbon Shift. I really enjoy the one I picked up. The lightweight and the good looks makes it a popular pair. If you give them a go, I don't think you will regret it.

    I'm trying to figure out, what you mean by "more mature" as you have said this in several posts. I'm 40yrs old and wear X-Metals nearly every day, as do many others here. Not to argue, just saying.

    To answer your question, if u want something completely different from your X-Metals, then any of the other frames you mentioned would do. You can never go wrong with carbon fiber IMHO.

    I just mean that the Juliets are more sporty. I don't think they go well with nicer clothes / a suit / etc.

    For a suite, I think I would opt for Ti Crosshairs. You could also do the Tin foils though.

    Thanks! I think I'm going to go with those 99.00 dollar tinfoil carbons that are on Oakley.com right not. I think those would go well with any sort of dresser clothes.

    Carbon Shift:
    Need help deciding.. - image.jpeg I agree with supersharp, the Ti Crosshairs are really good. I have a pair and they are really nice. Enjoy both the Crosshairs and Shift.

    Either the Tinfoils or the Carbon Shift
