    Hi all, chanced upon these on a local website, I've compared the shape with others online and cant spot any difference other than the fact that the tip of the earstems curve out slightly.

    I've never owned a pair of x metals before so I have no idea what to look our for. Probably the only thing I know is that they should have torx screws! Hopefully these will be my first pair of x metal shades!


    What do you think?

    Yes. Also the finish on the xx is off. And the lenses in the Romeo are incorrect.

    And upon a closer look. The nosebombs on the Romeo are also incorrect.

    One instant dead giveaway is the earstem tips: unlike the genuine ones which follow the curve through, these fakes bend outwards. I really don't know why these dipsh1ts can't get this right, but thankful too!
