For the New Year my shopping list for eyewear includes frames by Lesca, Lindberg, and Mykita. I'm sure 2024 will be a great year.

Happy New Year to everyone!

Any recommendations for titanium frames similar to Masunaga Chord D (pictured) or G, but wider? The two frames I wear right now are 52-20-145 and 50-21-138, both 140mm total width. The Chord D's are only 47-20-145 so I think they'd be too narrow.

Lens shape doesn't look that similar to the Chord's. Too tall/narrow, wouldn't suit my face.

For reference, I currently wear Warby Parker Gus Wide's (pictured). They fit my face well. I'm looking for something similar but without the cross bar and better quality.

Are Moscot lemtosh worth the price they cost?
I'm thinking about buying one mainly because they have small sizes like 44

I currently own 2 Moscot frames. One is the Lemtosh sun and the other is a Momza frame.. both are very nice, but I would say there are other brands that would give you more bang for buck.

Have you had a look at Trevi Coliseum 1971 frames? The look is similar and they are way cheaper.. like 90 - 100 euros..

Plus Moscot has increased prices A LOT in the last few years.. I bought my frames in 2020, if my memory serves well, and then they were listed at like EUR 275 (and I got a discount on my prescription at the eyewear shop).. now frames are much more expensive and I don't think the quality justifies the hefty price increase.

I find the Lemtosh arm tips more comfortable than the Momza's..

I've almost pulled the trigger a few times,...

And to be honest, after buying a few JMM frames, everything else seems affordable.

I am leaning towards lighter frames now, titanium frames, and I plan on getting a rimless frame as well.

I tried JMM frames but I found them too bulky and heavy..
