Good morning from Atlanta, GA! I stumbled upon the forum when trying to research several things about the X-Metal Juliets that I've owned for about 7 years (guestimate) now. I originally purchased them at an outlet store for $285 and purchased extra nose and ear pieces, along with 2 extra sets of polarized lenses (rose and amber). I've taken great care of them and now need a new pair of polarized lenses. I found those on ebay this morning (purchased the fire set for $72). While trying to figure out how to get the nose section tightened, Google led me to your forum. Glad to be a part of the forum. I've owned Oakleys for close to 15 years. Love my current pair. They are virtually idiot-proof, which is a great aspect with 2 kids under 5 years old.
