    So, today I locate some Carbon Black Juliets, new, at mbstores.com. Yes new and in stock !

    Oakley - Juliet - X-Metal Sunglasses, Carbon / Black Iridium, 04-148

    The price is $700 reduced to $679 so I emailed to query the price in case of a mistake etc, (Julies were never anything like that retail). All the others were 3-400 ish (sold out)

    The reply I get is cheeky as f***

    From Mike mbstores:
    "Price of these collective Juliets will only go up. Good luck finding a Juliet 3-400" !

    From a shop, I find that a disgraceful reply, rude, unprofessional etc etc.

    I sent this back:
    Ah, so it's a scalping price. Best of luck with that ! I'm sure your customers will appreciate that kind of practice.

    Now, I know people can charge what they like for anything, but from an online retailer ? Come on !!!

    Fuming. :hunter:

    Interesting.


    If he is an authorized dealer I think that practice is frowned upon.

    I'd be surprised if they are authorized. Here's their address:
    MBstores.com
    1932 Irving St, Ste 27
    San Francisco, CA 94122

    Here's what's there:
    Nice response from mbstores.com re Juliets - MB.jpg
    A smoke shop and more importantly a P.O. box/ mailbox drop. Most legit, above-board businesses have mail and stuff sent to their business- they don't hide behind a mail drop...
