Different wiring and arrowhead colours. Shadow has silver. Eclipse is gold.
Couple thoughts:
If shadow, and those are opticals, they are not eclipse because the lens is completely different. I think eclipse describes more the lenses than the frames really. So that’s the main difference.
Secondly, I think your gold in shadow is light gold vs dark gold in eclipse, but they prob look the same.
the optician and I stared at both for a while couldn’t tell difference

Edward Beiner seems to have some exclusive colorways (so they claim. I Googled around and they do seem to be exclusive). They are the Jax and Mollino in a dark blue color called Marine 2.

The store also has some nice photography that seems like it was done in-house, which might give some people a better idea of how some models look.

Those Marines were out months ago. There won’t be many left by now. I get to EB every couple of months when I go to Fort Lauderdale for work. The marine colour was very disappointing to me like the Royal. Both almost black unless viewed in very bright light. Still waiting for JMM to come up with a brighter blue acetate.

You are not alone…..age and photo allergic here too…….
got some Jeff RX coming, fingers crossed they work, but still v.happy with my Molino.
I thought I was on the older side too. Nearing 53 and my first pair of JMMs (Dealan Noir). I’ve been an optical frame nut for years but always stuck with Oakley frames, especially in carbon fiber. Moved to the Anne & Valentin frames a couple of years ago before discovering JMM. I’ve become fairly obsessed with the brand now and will end up with several I can tell.

Those look dope. Where’d you get the gradients?
An optometrist friend of mine in Melbourne loaded them up with Hoya lenses. Worked at Hoya Japan for 15+ years and says nothing really compares to the quality of their product. The anti-reflective coating is much better than what JMM are using, and funnily enough, the only reason I replaced the stock Taos lenses is because the coating rubbed off after cleaning them twice. I'm a total sucker for gradients and very happy with how they look now :p

When I see my optometrist for some JMM sunnies I’m asking about Hoya gradients now. Those are 🔥
You and me both.

Hoping that I've managed to find myself a new connect in Italy for well priced JMM frames. Got a pair of Argyle Buckleys on pre-order. Just need to sit back and wait :cool:

When you guys purchase a gradient lenses, do you specify where the gradient would start?

I noticed the lenses I got, the gradient starts at the middle. I prefer they start lower in the lenses in hindsight.
