I think you would look good in the jaggers, if you haven't tried them yet. I really like mine. That new color is incredibly tempting
I'll keep an eye for out for some at the shops. I really love metal frames, I wore aviators for years and years. I'm a sucker for oversized. Though I got a haircut and suddenly my Sandros look pretty oversized now haha

Hi Guys,
First-time poster long time lurker, sorry for that - and nice to meet you all! -This might be a random interjection to this 215-page long thread but I read that Hanto had some really interesting insights to the manufacturing of JMM. I have had JMMs Fitzgerald for about a year now and have honestly never owned such a high-quality pair of glasses before.....despite the price being eye-watering for me.
I was wondering if anybody knew where in Japan they were made? I read somewhere there seems to be an Acetate Mecca over there but for obvious reasons can't find any details. Does anybody know?

The Cortina looks like it has a cool fade for the lenses.

View attachment 1560370
I did an old v new comparison to see the differences in frame shape as the new Cortinas were described as 'boxier' in the lens. I prefer a more boxier frame and have previously tried on the original Jaggers but thought they were a little too angular for my liking.

The only obvious differences I can see are the outer section of the bottom rim comes a down a little further. As nice as they are, after seeing this I'm not convinced there's enough of a shape change to warrant me splashing out $895.

Welcome. This is a very informative interview with Jerome Mage where he shares lots of info about the making of the glasses. Dean Del Ray is a bit of a lug, but Jerome is charming.

This was posted months ago. I agree on the guy interviewing him, but I found him somewhat charming over the course of the interview. I also kinda thought he knew his stuff

Yes, I learned of the interview here and I thought our new friend would appreciate the link. Del Ray is credible, yes.

We all start somewhere. I had initially ordered some Yellowstone Fitzgeralds which have now disappeared into thin air, so I got the Dealans as a replacement, and the Torinos because, well, I can't find a good reason...

I like the look of your Comanches EA but I really need to find a place where I can try some of them on before I pull the trigger.

@bbhewee both of those look good. They are both large frames so some of us with narrower heads have to read with care but you’re on safe ground there. What happened to your Fitzs? I had them in sage and they’re a really cool look but ‘someone’ persuaded me to sell them on. I know they’ve gone to a good home but do have a slight lingering sellers’ remorse!
