you can say that about literally any piece of clothing or accessory (it’s not ugly, just needs the right person to pull off), including the checkered frames everyone here shit on.

I think kobos are ugly, and that they’ll look bad on 90% of the dudes clamoring to buy them. Doesn’t mean that the 10% won’t look great in them.

the designs are cool as objects, just like many fashion items are, but just aren’t great when you don’t look like an old Bond villain like that model they always use. It’s why Molinos and Dealans sell so well — they’re great designs, built really nicely, and actually look good on people buying them.
If ten percent of wearers looked good in the frame, and more importantly ten percent of the wearers felt good and confident in that frame, one could hardly refer to the frame as “bad.”

The generalizatio, however…

Got me the Kobo Fades from Japan. 😎 May get the Dark Havana and Rootbeer as well from Italy to compare. @Billy Ray Valentine - if you want help with a proxy from JP let me know. If it's cheaper than Aus I can explain how to get it with marked down customs for £585 + Postage. This would be for either the Noir, Rootbeer or Fade.

Didn't know this... Thanks. Tried to use my 15% off on the Matchesfashion app for the 1st time on some JMM's and Customer Service would not budge.
I can try and send a referral code for them if that helps? Managed to pull their arm to get the 15% off on my Enzos. Sometimes faining ignorance helps!

They look great there. How do the frame shapes differ. Montana looks slightly lower and with a slight taper at the bottom?
Seems the Cortina are flatter on the top also but the VT color on the Montana is better same as on the Ascari and Loewy.

I got lasik. But if I wanted to feign an intelligent look, has anyone gotten transition lenses but with non-prescription blue light blocking lenses before or know if that’s an option through an optometrist, like Anthony aiden ?
