Anyone have other pics of the Walker? I think there was some mention of it in relation the Fellini, which I’m a huge fan of, so maybe the Walker will be a good alternative to me buying additional Fellinis in other colors.

Out of curiosity, do you think it is possible to outfit the PCH with prescription lenses that exactly copy the gradient of the stock lenses? Or is that beyond the scope of what a good optometrist can do?

I’m sure a shop like Gogosha could pull it off. In many instances, a shop wouldn’t attempt to do this in house but would have it done at their lens lab. My guy in Cleveland said that if I wanted to try that he would see if his lab could do it.

I've been thinking about picking up my first pair of JMM. I'm debating between the Taos fade or PCH green....I know it depends on face shape but I'm just curious as what people's opinions are on these two pairs.

I bought the PCH and like them, but there's a very small part of me that feels ridiculous for paying so much money for a pair of aviators that looks pretttttyyy similar to other aviators. But they have just the right shape and detailing where I decided I would rather have these than others.

I also really like the Taos and think they look more unique. That said, while playing around with the two frames at home, I feel like the Taos is a more aggressive looking frame that doesn't always play well in certain outfits, whereas the PCH is a little more generic and thus easy to wear. Of the five JMM frames I own, I wear my Taos the least, although I don't like them any less. It's just that sometimes I try them on with an outfit and feel something else works better.

I guess it depends on your face shape and wardrobe? Realize that's not very helpful.

That’s funny. I feel the Taos works with every outfit in the Vis, Kapital, 18 East vein whereas the PCH seems more sleaze/70s directional. The only thing I don’t see the Taos working with is CM stuff.

Hm, I don't have any 18 East stuff, although I admire it online. I agree that the Taos goes well with Visvim and Kapital though.

I must have a different definition of sleaze to most people in this forum. To me sleaze goes hand in hand with cheap, yet it’s a term that a lot of people throw around when describing the JMM aesthetic. Maybe I’m just not familiar with what you’re all referring to

I think the Walker is fine. New temple details and I like the argyle color way (well, on the Good See pics at least). Not as interested in the Whiskeyclone. The Edie is an abomination.

Excited about the (new?) emerald color way. I hope they'll bring it to other frames.
