Could someone who owns both brands provide a comparison between the titanium models of DITA and JMM? Which one is better?
tnx

It's already been said, but they're fundamentally different approaches to making metal frames.

Dita (and the Thom Browne frame they make) make thicker, more prominent frames, with beefier components. The titanium is more substantial with filigree designs and decoration, and the acetate on the combo pairs is also thicker.

JMM takes a more delicate approach to titanium frames, opting for thinner dimensions, with a lighter profile.

I think the quality if essentially moot. No one here that's buying $1,000 titanium frames is putting them thru their paces to where the quality difference (if there really is one between Dita & JMM titanium) will matter.

Hot DOG! That is one heck of a collection! How often do you wear them? Do you change eyewear during the day? IAALJ

Tnx
There are sunglasses that I wear more often than others. Yes, I also happen to change glasses several times a day depending on the outfit, context, or whether it's morning or afternoon

From JMM's Instagram. Evans Stallion.

View attachment 2169585

A new batch of Evans coming up?
Love the Evans. I have it hickory. Just wish it were a bit larger. I put in some zeiss blue photochromics with a ruby flash mirror. Let me tell you something. It’s one heck of a look that takes me back to the greatest decade of all: 1980s.

On the topic of cheaper alternatives to JMM, Casatlantic frames seem pretty cool! Made in Japan as well.

Great model for sure, I missed the first drop. Maybe they will also come as sunglasses this time?

I've owned and loved my Dita Midnight Special sunglasses for years now.
