    Old old old old old old. And ALWAYS will be. Sorry but even if the company hits some home runs going forward it won't be the same; you can't improve upon perfection. Just leaving aside the fact that the Badman/Madman are more like the O-Luminum line and overpriced by at least $200 and shouldn't really be part of the X-Metal lineage- the fact is most of us will always stand by the fact that if none of the other X-Metals are the greatest pieces of eyewear ever made, the Juliet most certainly IS and the line as a whole- and certainly the Romeo 1, Juliet and X-Squared trio- are some of the most inventive and cutting edge wearable products ever.

    I owned a number of XX over the years....I just never warmed to the design for some reason...don't know why. Which is odd, I like the larger lens profile. It would be hard for me to pick just one model if I was going to a desert island and could only take one...but if I had to...it would be a Juliet. For my face and everyday use I find it the most versatile. Does anyone remember a period a year or so or more when there was a group on the forum who asserted the XS didn't look good on ANY face? I never got that- I thought it fit and looked great on many faces including mine.
