    someone posted this image of a juliet carbon, odd because the sku# is on the right temple and has the name "juliet" or misprint "jullet" on the arm. is this a fake or did oakley release this?

    The SKU checks out for carbon with black iridium lens, and the glasses do look legit. I can't see the ear tips but the orbital joins look spot on. I'd say this is an authentic frame but I'm not sure why it has the frame name on there. @BriP ?

    Not the split box you would expect an SKU/size Juliet to come in either.

    I'd ask for close up photos of the ear stem tips, back of the nosepiece and orbital breaks to feel easier.

    Still, not having ever seen a Juliet with those markings makes me wonder...

    Yep - in general there's enough warning signs to stay away.

    Like discostu said, you can't see the earstem tips to see if they flare or not. Those look like real orbital breaks but the pics aren't good enough to tell for certain. The pics aren't good enough to see if it's rivets or screws in the nosebridge. The hinge screws are properly recessed but you can't see what sort of drive / head is on them. You can't see anything about markings on the rubbers. And, like Carrera said, they're not in a split box.

    If these are fake, they're very good fakes. But the SKU is the biggest flag - I have never heard of any x-metals being marked on the right earstem, nor have the frame name printed, misspelled or not.

    Unless these are the ultra-rare, right-earstem-marked "Jullets", only -5 ever made, worth $27K....:D

    Actually, I've held a Jordan romeo with Romeo engraved into it in the correct script. Even JJ didn't know why it was like that.

    I can't see the back of the nose piece clearly. Are they rivets/pins or screw heads?
