Is that what that is!? I thought it was for cleaning the lenses 😂😂😂
It's for cleaning lenses.

The Armoury sells a white pocket square that you can use for cleaning lenses. It's basically a microfiber cloth. Don't know if I'd use JMM's cloth as a pocket square, as the semi-solid red color would look tacky.

Tried on the KOBO & Ichikawa and they are meh. Really great if you have a large strong face, but pretty obnoxious if you have a small narrow face like my own. Also they are both super tall I would guess maybe 48mm or larger from top to bottom. The rep let me know that the next collection will be primarily based off of famous Japanese people and their glasses style, which is cool, I hope they have an Araki style frame. I do like the new platinum color which is basically the same as the smoke, but with a slightly different stylized arm. Unfortunately, the rep was only showing three new frames, their backstock and the last fontier pt.2 which is cool, but not really my style and way out of my price range. Maybe Ill post some fit picks later.

it is but I don’t like it for cleaning glasses, try it out that cloth doesn’t do a great job imo hence pocket square.
I felt the same, used it to clean some lenses and it kinda made them cloudy.

Good to know, I haven’t used it yet so I’ll just skip it and leave it in box.

Sorry all, it was very hard in the moment to try and honor all the requests while I was at the Blink show. It was a ton of fun, though, and Scott from JMM is super friendly and accommodating.

Highlights for me: The Ichikawa is killer (I know chimps just said he didn't like it, but different strokes). I own the Clyfford already (which I've mentioned is very close), so it's a hard buy for me, but it's so so good. I really like the royal colorway as well (saw it in the Walker, I think). Looks almost black, but in direct light it's definitely a midnight blue. I thought the Rawlins Last Frontier was easily the best and most wearable LF model.

Some other frandom info: I was told there aren't any current plans to bring back any vintage tort as far as they know. The Kobo is fun in an I-wouldn't-wear-it sort of way, personally. I think it would look great on the right face, though. Bastogne I didn't like much in person.

Just gonna dump the pics from my phone here and a couple quick clips. I wasn't sure if it would be cool for me to bring my real camera, but next time I will for sure. @D. Black actually had some better captures on his IG stories if you wanna check those out as well.

I think Kaine in argyle? Didn't work for me, but the color is bonkers.

Fuck, everything is so good and I don't want to spend more money.

Argyle color is amazing.

New Japanese inspired frames are really good. =(

@d4nimal you should buy those Kobos
