I know there's a lot of hate for aviators and a lot of apathy for the titanium frames, but I am very jazzed about the Omahas. Can't wait to see them in person

I have a pair of the Scarpas and really love them. The titaniums feel so much more comfortable on the face. On the Scarpas, in particular, the arms thin out, but they also angle slightly inward. I find this allows the frames to stay comfortably up without feeling any pressure on the sides.

Would like to see more titanium frames in the future, esp in styles you can wear as regular opticals.

Most JMM acetate frames come with a leather pouch these days. Not sure about the Ti ones.
My Kilpatricks (sun frame) came with the leather pouch. My Taos and Ascaris came with the hard case. Last Frontier Laramie came with the fancy chimayo leather zip case which is nice, but very impractical.

This is why I love my Kilpatricks. They are light enough to "disappear" while wearing them. All day comfort, and I really love how they look.

Weird, my Taos came in a soft leather case. Must be a pretty big hard case, I imagine. Wish I had a hard one though.


That's what she said.

As far as I'm aware, there's two main types of cases. There's the smaller rectangular cases, and then there's ones that are flared on one side which fit the larger frames. Below is an image of the type of case that came with my frames.

Here are the 2 clamshell cases side by side:
Nice. I emailed CS to see if there are any hard cases available for purchase for my Taos. I had to send them in a hard Prada case I have lying around to my sister (optometrist) to get lenses made, and she told me everyone was saying “ohhh Prada, fancy!” which admittedly eats at me more than it should.
