    Hello everyone. I am new to the forum and just want to say hi. I have enjoyed Oakley glasses for the last 10 years or so but found out about the X-metal line of sunglasses fairly recently and have started collecting . I am amazed by the quality, craftsmanship and manufacturing process for the X-metal line. I am disappointed that they were discontinued but I guess it gives collectors more of a challenge to obtain these pieces. Anyways, looking forward to being part of the forum.

    Thanks! So far I have some X-Squared - X-metal frame, Emerald and Ruby Lenses, Polished Carbon Frame, Polarized BI lenses, and Carbon Frame, BI lenses. I also have 2 Juliets - One Carbon Frame, BI lenses and one Plasma frame, BI lenses that are serialized with W warranty serial. Not many yet but I am sure I will slowly accumulate more.

    Unfortunately no. I just found them on Kijiji and they only had the microfiber bag. They came with fire iridium lenses that were badly scratched so I added some black iridium replacements. The nosebridge is fairly loose but wearable. Frame is in pretty good condition but a bit of discoloration in spots. They will serve as a beater pair for now I guess.
