Got my first pair today - Zephirin in Rover. Love em' and see people mentioning the END sale. Tempted to get another pair though these are 47s and the ones on sale are 44's... Think it's worth it / is there a dramatic difference?
Those look good on you.

I tried the 44s once at a trunk show and felt they were too small for me. That said, I normally go for frames that are at least 48 or 49 nowadays. So it depends on your size preference.

The practical difference between 44 and 47 is meaningful.

I probably would not duplicate a model in a different color. There are too many other good options.

If you were to buy another pair, I would go for one without the keyhole bridge.

Thanks! Yeah I should probably hold off and branch off into a different style anyways. Just got so psyched on my first pick up.

Good advice! Thank you. Getting a bit ahead of myself. After browsing this forum for a while, I finally fully understand the infatuation with the brand.

Just sold my 44s for that reason. Felt good at first but felt more like a novelty and too small. I think I really just prefer aviators and larger lenses overall.

Can anyone confirm (in hand) if the Walkers on the End site are truly Molino 55's? I would like to order them, but don't want to go through the hassle of a return.

Finally got my Sandro's adjusted, here is a pic from April, thanks to @Jaymig926 for letting these go to me!

I can tell you when my shipment comes in. I suspect that they are Molino 55s because that's what was photographed.

Anyone own or try the yves and enzos and have comparative thoughts on them in terms of fit and look? For example does the height of the lens of either make the frame end up resting on your cheeks? They fit similarly wide or is the yves noticeably bigger? Thinking of ordering both to compare but if easy enough to rule out one over the other I won’t bother as I prefer not to buy and return. Been doing that enough lately!

I own Enzos and love them.
I tried on the Yves once, and immediately started cracking up and put them back down.
I found them HUGE on me, even compared to the Enzos...

Yves: overall width 147mm
overall height: 54mm
Enzo: 145mm
51mm
Neither rest on my cheeks but it is definitely closer with the Yves
the Yves frame is a lot thinner so the lenses look significantly bigger and hence they do look quite a bit bigger even in my fat face
