a) Are those actually real?
b) Is that site as full of d*ckh**ds as that thread suggests?

Unfortunately Harry yes the OakleyForum can be like that at times.... always a minority, don't get me wrong, but open membership to forums always attracts all sorts, it's too easy to just sign up with a new username if you get canned, not that the mods there ever can anyone to my knowledge... think i'd have suspended both the fools banging it out in that thread....

Would love either of the new 24ks looking at them, shame they are going to be limited run, chances of me landing a pair are going to be virtually zero :( just imagine 24k Julies with a 24k lens swap..... it's making me moist just thinking about it lol

Honestly I would much prefer those 24k/titanium TiO2 style Juliets Ichiro was wearing, these http://neighborhoodhalfwits.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/ichiro_suzuki-smile.jpg
just like you should never go full retard, you should never go full gold, with the exception of the LE Timebomb
maybe if I pay O-Xide enough, he will make me some

Who's the Einstein who says they must be fake because Oakley doesn't make Juliets with hammerstems anymore?

I can't compete with such intelligence!!

Well the LE Timebomb was at least 18K gold. I wouldn't mind the all gold look if it was all gold (least to the grade jewelers use). But if we go that far, why not use white gold for the orbitals.

The 24k Julet / XS release may very well be what rips apart Oakley factions for years to come. Will it be the Blings vs the Blechs? Only time will tell...

Or maybe I'll just look so fantastic in my XS pair, and you'll all be able to see me from space with them on, it will bring everyone back together in harmony beyond reason.

Do the 24k ltd. editions of Juliet and X-Squared have serial numbers in the left stem or only on the box? Does anyone know that?

Some people who have gotten the XS said it's etched on the ear stem as well.

Now I know that the 24K Juliet and the X-Squared do have serial numbers lasered in the RIGHT stem like 'xxx/750'. Nice.

They look great... but would have been even better with 24K Polarized.

Just got in my X Squared pair today. The pics above are probably far better than I could have taken. I can understand the colorway isn't for everyone, but I actually quite enjoy the Ti polarized lenses in them.

Even though I'm not an X Metal fan at all, those pics are stunning!

since the Xsquared shipped before the stated shipping date of Jan 2012, any chance the Juliets will ship out as well?

Are x-metals now shipping with cases or is that something unique to the 24k's? I'm digging the gold x-metal emblom on them.

these are so pimp, I can pop some 24k lenses in them to put them over the top.
