Has any of you guys picked up the Full Metal Jacket? I'm considering them as opticals.
I've been wearing the black ones as my daily opticals since they came out. Quite happy with them. I tried the other colors as well but this worked better with my skin tone.

The only complaint is that the black temple tips have peeled away slightly and revealed the underlying gold (attached screenshot to visualize it easier). JMM responded that they sadly don't have any replacements. I also think this isn't a problem on the other two colors since they have a different finish.

So now I’m torn between holding onto my dough or sinking $800 into those Sandros, waiting two months and gambling that they work for me and also gambling on whether they might later release a Lapis Molino or similar and then having to fart about with the switching.
I’m glad my JMM hunting is winding down this is exhausting!😄
This is the quandary I’ve been burned on before. There’s simply no good strategy to mitigate the risk, sad as that is. Plus, it’s a much riskier situation now that JJ jacked up the prices so much.

First pair of JMM - GT in JPS. I really like them. Feel really substantial compared to - all - of my other sunglasses.

I have a serious case of fat-head. GT is just about the widest frame JMM makes.

Guys at 1269 suggested maybe Torino. Any other frames that might work w/ my giant noggin?
