Also, one other Q: My Jaxs are heavy to the point I can't seem to wear the frames for longer than an hour at a time. Does anyone else have this problem? Would you recommend I adjust the frames somewhere to fit my face better?

Thanks!

Going to the optometrist next week and they sell JMM. Confirmed they had some in stock, but they wouldn't tell me which models. Hoping I come home with something good.

I would love to see the launch of a not too chunky acetate mens spectacle in maraschino colour with blue lenses. Lakes and Dorothys are too feminine for my taste.

No matter how thick the acetate, you should not have these kind of issues. It might take a couple of adjustments to perfectly adjust the frames, but after that you should be fine.

I can wear my Molinos all day long without any problems. When I got them I initially felt like somebody put my skull into a vice. It took three trips to the optician to find the perfect adjustment, and now I am super happy with them.

check out Anne & Valentin. Lots of great acetate colors and bold, but not nearly as bold as JMM. I have a couple that I love (but not nearly as much as my JMM)

Thanks @Davsun, but nothing similar to what I am looking for. Moscot Lemtosh in ruby is really nice but would like something thicker and with blue lenses.

I was gonna suggest Moscot. Great glasses.
They also advertise custom dipped lenses so you could get blue lenses and ruby frames if you change your mind about their acetate thickness.

Thanks @Thin White Duke ...I just saw that with an italian retailer. Moscot Ruby Lemtosh with city light lenses. For what you pay, it would be nice from JMM to have that great option.

The JMM X Yellowstone Zephirin Storm (Mr Porter exclusive) are pretty darn nice...

Folks got a few questions, I am most likely picking up Enzo's in the next week.

1. Does anyone know the difference between shadow 2 and eclipse? They both seem identical in the pics (see below).
2. Do folks view these models better as sunnies or prescription lenses (clear, not doing chameleons) ?
* If sunnies I will most likely switch out my molino to be clear lenses.

I just picked up the Eclipse Enzo. Don’t have experience with Shadow 2 but what I can tell is the Shadow 2 sunnies have a blue lense. I don’t think there’s really a difference in the black acetate color, but I could be wrong. One thing that jumps out is that the Shadow gold temple wiring appears more exposed through the length, which suggests slight difference in the acetate.
