^^i think it’s just lighting and angle. I’m not convinced those are gold.

Pulled the trigger on the Walker. It looks awesome. Thank you for your suggestions.I dont think you should hesitate to get the Walker. They are a more interesting pair of sunnies than the Fellini. Chunky sculpted acetate plus three extra stars on each temple. Everything that's great about JMM.
I discovered these a while back which might be of interest. They look good but I have not handled in person as it seems like its Japan & international only at this point:Tart Arnels were allegedly the sunglasses worn by Cary Grant in North By Northwest. This became an internet fact until a rep from Tart came out to debunk it.
More recently Oliver Peoples got permission from the Grant estate to recreate them. I got some and they were made in a really tasty reddish brown tortoise acetate but the proportions weren’t right. Even the smaller size 48 was way too big and the lenses were G15 grey when they should have been green. I sold them on and now have Moscot Lemtosh which at 46mm gets the size and shape about right and I got green lenses but the colour (limited edition dark blonde) just doesn’t have that great reddish tinge that would have made them perfect.
Interesting. I got the Oliver Peoples Cary Grants which were 48s and huge on me. I then got similar styled Moscot Lemtosh size 46 which fit me just about right. As I always say, only a millimeter or two difference in lens size can make massive differences in how they appear on your face!I used to have a pair of those Tart Arnel repros by Julius. I found the size 46 a bit too small for me, but I like the design otherwise. Ended up selling mine because of the fit. I thought the quality was OK. Kind of standard.

I really like the look of the Walkers but evidently I have a narrow face so certain styles (white heat, whiskeyclone, Walker etc) just don’t look good on me.
