Apparently Delean and Molino are their best sellers.
you found the regular Molino too big or the 55s?
The standard Molino was one of the pairs I’ve been thinking about next.

Im seriously considering a pair of Saints since I loved the Havana on the Fellini so much
Those are interesting but I'm not sure the yellow lenses are dark enough. I'm considering the noir version.

The regular Molino (51s). Which was surprising, because my David Kind Wexlers are almost the same exact measurements, just encased in far less material and therefore more lightweight.

I haven't cracked the code as to how frame measurements determine fit.

@OccultaVexillum, the enzos look good on u. Wouldn’t second guess it.
love my jmm Fitzgeralds eyeglasses, feel like it’s a pretty versatile style. Those and my hopper sunglasses make all my other previous frames (supposedly good quality) feel like cheap plastic toy frames.

Anyone bought from Avvenice and can vouch for them being legit?

Thank you :)
I do like them a lot. I just want to swap the blue lenses for some grey/smoke polarized ones

The Molino 51´s are one their best IMHO. Here’s me with the Havana 3´s think I put this pic up before but haven’t been anywhere cool since the rona. I like the whole see your eyes through the lens thing. The Molino is super easy to wear

I also loved the Vintage Tort Ascaris on sight since the Enzo didn’t work out for me and the Ascaris did. Don’t have a fit pic but I took a pic of it in the sun and the tort looked great and has the vibe I’m looking for

I'm going in Saturday to pick up the Zephirin Yellowstones. I was intending to use them as sunglasses, but now I'm thinking I might have optical lenses put in and opt for a different pair for shades.
If the Yellowstones were available for me to try on I would've gotten them in a heartbeat. I really like the shape and would wear them as opticals all the time. The Jax is alllllmost too big for my face as opticals but the roundness at the bottom helps balance it out. Another Jax wearer described them as "round square" which is the perfect interpretation. I put transitions (G-15) in so they can double as sunnies. I think I'll try to put transitions in my Mollino's because the shape is not too crazy for opticals and fits my face well. Opticians will tell you your eyes should more or less be horizontally center in the frame, and your decision should be less dependent on of the rest of your face.

For strictly sunglasses I lean toward large, oversized frames since it doesn't matter where my eyes in the frames, it's all about whatever look you're going for.

Molino's are great but just a heads up: the 55s are massive.

(I'll just reply here and assume Fok will port this over as well) Yea, I was surprised they worked for me, being rounded, but I think the combination with the square angles does it. I will keep everyone updated (in the JMM thread) on the Yellowstone Zephirins.

Do you not wear prescription lenses with your sunglasses?

Yeah i wouldn't be looking at the 55s since the Enzo is all I need for an oversize frame.
If i did get another oversize pair it would probably be the Yves

I'm hoping the Nokona will fit me more for daily use and I think it will sit really well with Lemaire / Jil / Haider / Dries.
I was going to get the Sartre instead but the colour i wanted sold out, so scooped the Nokona.
After these 2 i want something in havana 3 or lava or a lighter colour.

I really like the Molino, Sturges and Fitzgerald but waffle a bit between those or something a bit rounder and weirder like the Zephrin and Mont Blanc
