Hi all, im new here and was hoping you could help me as I'm interested in adding the JMM Torino to my collection. Does anyone know or can describe the difference in acetate frame colour regarding the Tempest vs Charcoal. I understand that models come with different lens however I'm more interested in the frame colour. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Without doing a side by side comparison, and just by looking at online photos, I would say the Tempest (Silver hardware accents) is slightly more translucent than the Charcoal (Rose gold hardware accents) which appear a little more foggy/patchy if that makes sense.

Thanks, I also think that the charcoal maybe more of a matte/lower sheen finish. I was wanting a darker translucent frame so the charcoal maybe the go

If you go back to page 180 and see Jaymig's post #2691 with his Dealans in Charcoal, you will see this is not the case, and I doubt Torino Charcoal is any different. If you look closely the acetate has patchy greys throughout, which lends itself to the charcoal name.

So....I have narrowed it down to tempest, shadow and viper. I think the viper and shadow would be more versatile. Issue is I can't find any store online (that ship to australia) and in store that stock the shadow :(

I don't think you're trying very hard. I'm from Australia and have purchased from Framedewe.com and they have Frost, Tempest and Charcoal.

nichebazaarstudio.com has Tempest
goodseeco.com has Charcoal

OK apologies I assumed by your post that Tempest was still in the frame (pardon the pun), then I just threw in Frost and your original Charcoal. Shadow might just be the hardest to find of all.

I like all 3 but struggling to come to a conclusion. Initially I was leaning towards tempest but I think the darker frames of viper and shadow will be more versatile for me. Considering the shadow colourway maybe hard to come by, has anyone got frames in viper that can share a photo under sunlight? How green do they appear? Thanks in advance

I have tried Viper a few times. They are definitely green. Maybe in artificial light from a distance, they can appear close to black.

I believe jay has posted fit pics with viper frames. Search the thread.
