Default romeos or juliets? (oakleys

I wanna buy some tight sunglasses and what better than some oakleys famous, overworn... maybe, i never see them in dallas. But I was wondering should i go with some romeo's or juliets? I will be going into army/special forces so having some oakleys will add to my appeal

it depends - the only difference is that the romeo's lenses are much larger than the juliets. I tried the romeos on and the lenses were so big on my face that the nosepieces couldn't even rest on my nose. So, I went with Juliets. If I were you, I'd definitely go try on different models to see what fits your face best. If romeos are too big and juliets too small, try the XX model. If Juliets are too small, try Penny's. If none of those fit right, save some money and go for wires or jackets.

out of those juliets look better but i prefer the look of "wires" over X-metals

you should really try them on first though and have a look in the mirror because that is way better than picking a pair online

pretty much all oakleys will fit you well

I got E-Wire 2.1s Light Ice Iridium and love them

well my bad then, it's been years since I've worn anything other than my Juliets . I do remember that the Penny's are like half the size of the Juliets.

I got home last night from seeing fireworks only to find my oakleys had been chewed up by my 3 month old sheltie pup. I was/am so pissed about it. Those damn things costs me nearly $200 dollars. Of course, they are useless now so I will be shopping for some myself.

i guess wisest thing to do would be to go to a store ;o

I hate that though cause all they do is try to sell them to you, and no way am i gonna pay retail for those things.. ebay all the way.

Juliets/romeos for 200'ish

if they are less than 6 months old and you have the original receipt i am pretty sure you can get them replaced for half price

i know that is the way for sunglass hut anyway
