    Hey Everyone,

    Here's my story of X Metal came to be...

    Back in December, Thailand held a Bike for Dad which is to celebrate the King of Thailand Birthday.

    My wife and I decided to attend the event and realized we barely have decent pairs of sunglasses. So the day before, I explain how beautiful X-Metal are and I suggested if we could purchase our first X Metal.
    After walking into the O Store in Central world I saw couple of X Metal on display, from XM Penny, Polish Inchiro, 3 Romeo TI/XM/Plasma along with a sign that literally said "Not For Sale".

    So then I ask the clerk if they have any for sale and he quickly reply saying they're discontinue for many many years. Yes I'm diffinatly out of the loop here and ended with the Turbine Grey Ink/Ruby on that day.

    But during April, we visited the states and the wife surprised me with a birthday gift... It was my first X Metal, the X Squared XM/Ruby. Super shock and I did ask how she found the the pair and she told me her secret. She actually signed up on the Oakleyforum and brought from one of the forum member.

    Every since then been addictive to X Metal and got a pair of Juliet (not sure which Gen) from one of the family member. Working on getting the Penny and Mars in Thailand, along with a couple of package from the states.

    Thanks for reading you guys!

    @pjd1234 Thanks!

    @OakleyFrankFMJ Haha, I'm kinda afraid of that situation and in hope she doesn't end up read on this forum. But recently trying to motivate her to wear the X Metal during her extreme sport competition, so let's actually see if it's going to work. ;)

    @cyclerdoug, Thanks Doug! Hoping to collect all the X Metal Series first and then hope to find a Oakley shelf here in Thailand. Also Love the wife, she's actually planning now to trade her old Paragliding harness for a Juliet. I hope it's a good deal.

    Congrats. Think remember her on here maybe asking questions and such. Great collection you've started. Keep going. You can always trade her for a Garage Rock.
