    So I said I would stop purchasing pairs of glasses, as my wallet has felt the pain of being a member of this forum, etc. etc... BUT, I am wondering what pair of x-metal would likely suite me. And if there is a gracious member on here who would like to help me out and track a pair, I would love to arrange a trade of sorts.

    The frames in lifestyle that like my face most are the batwolf (hence having a few now). The jury fits to a T. Perhaps just going simple with a Juliet in this case would be best? I know the penny is too small for me already, the mars won't do me justice, and the Romeo is likely out of reach.

    Ideas? I've been thinking a lot, but am too terrified to jump the gun. Otherwise, I'm just going to go the other route and go for a pitboss as I know those fit me right.

    Judging from your pic/avatar I'd try a pair of XS on and go from there, on the other hand juliets do fit many faces. Those two would be where I would start. Don't count out the Romeo, I have seen it pulled off on many different face sizes as well. Take your time meet with people that have them, and try them on. Meanwhile, save up.

    I agree, the xs is a good place to start, and typically cheaper than an xx. But be forewarned, its hard to own just one.

    I think you should try out an X-Squared and see how you like that......if possible preferably at an O store. Unless someone is willing to trade with ya.

    I began here with almost all holbrooks in my collection and now they seem to be on the back burner compared to my metals and pitboss lol. Be careful, I still love and wear my brooks and wires but metals bring o obsession to a different level.

    XS for sure. If you like lifestyles then that would be the best fit. Everything else is tiny - at least thats what they look like on my face. I also say XS because XXs and Romeos are hard to find.

    This one made me laugh, at myself. I don't know how many times I have thought the same. One will show up in the mail (like today, 2 from Dyeraudio) Aaaaah, comfortably numb, that's good got enough. Then a few days later on here, Ebay and CraigsList looking for another fix.


    I "Need Some Help" too. :help:
