What is the second from the top? Really hard to tell with the mask on, but I think I like that one the best. Don’t really like most of those frames on you, TBH.

The whole appeal of this brand is that it's heavy with 1970s sleazy references. Not sure if it's for people who want a "classic" look. When I think classic, I think of JFK. These are not JFK glasses.Obviously JMMs are generally going for a very bold look but I think that as with clothing, the more ‘out there’ you go, ie the further you stray from a more classic style, the greater the likelihood that you’ll date yourself and live to regret it later.
Yea, I like the browlines, but for the kind of money JMM charges, I feel like it would be somewhat of a waste. There are so many brands that do good browlines. I feel like the value is more in the big, chunky frames.while there are some smaller frames that look good as strictly readers, I feel it's a waste of JMM's strength of chunky acetate goodness.
Dude white light is so sick. I'm jealous of anyone who doesn't need prescription, I would go absolutely ham if I didn't have to drop another $150+ on lenses
Its a matter of degree. Yes, JMM acetate sunglasses are thick and bold. That said, if you purchase models that fit within the structure of your face, as opposed to extending beyond your facial structure, you can look classic notwithstanding the thick, bold acetate. Many of JMM's designs are modern interpretations of classic designs. However, even the most classic shape can look over-the-top if worn too large. My facial structure dictates that I stay between 47 and 51 with JMM acetate. Any larger and the sunglasses begin to wear me. Even some of JMM's 51 models -- e.g., the Taos -- are too large for me. I love the Enzo and the Torino, but they are overwhelming on my face. One can maintain a classic look with JMM acetate, but you have to choose your models carefully based on your particular facial structure. For me, the Jax, Fitzgerald, Zephirin 47, and Molino 51 achieve the perfect balance of tempered, classic, boldness.The whole appeal of this brand is that it's heavy with 1970s sleazy references.
