Hey all, first time posting in this thread. I’ve had some Blake Kuwahara’s, Mykita, even sprung for an EB Meyrowitz on sale from Mr. Porter. JMM really is the best “value” out there, between the beautiful packaging, quality and unique designs and colors. Really glad I made the switch and got the Jax sunglasses. Will post a picture soon.

I saw the case discussion earlier and wanted to mention the Metier London case. It’s thick enough, despite being a sleeve style, to fit the Jax model glasses, has a really cool design, very high quality coated canvas and leather materials and a bit of padding. Not to mention a very satisfying “click” to the closure. It’s ridiculously expensive for a sunglasses case (I was given it as a gift), but a really cool product.

Jules for me, and trying to decide whether I turn these into sunnies, or keep them as an RX... Are they too small for an RX?

I had a similar choice to make last year, between the Artaud and the Molino. In the end I decided on the Molino with photochromic lenses and I am very happy with that setup.

It was mostly personal preference, I just wanted to have something rather bold and oversized instead of the more understated Artaud.

I also have these Dealans that I'm looking to reglaze. One should be a sun and the other a RX, and I'm starting to think I might flip them around...

I have the Dealans as RX with transitions, just be aware the shape is a bit bold as specs. If it fits your personality, go for it.

Me about 15 years ago (tache, hair and all). I can rock those. For some reason I feel the Jules might be a little on the small side, but that also might be because I've been wearing 50-55 width lens mostly lately.

These things are really bad for me as I'm already looking at other pairs on JMM's site. 😅

Any recommendations for other frames if I love the Zephirin frame? The Shironeri Enzo have caught my eye but I'm not sure if they'd match my paler skin tone. The Jax Rover seem cool too. I could always wear a pair as regular glasses, but I've worn contacts just about every day for close to 20 years now and transitions always seemed weird to me for some reason.
