I have the Seberg, as you know, which came out at the same time, and is a great piece as well. Really understated but classy.
I tried on the Seberg and was surprised how much I liked them. Very underrated as you say and the bottle green lenses really popped bottle green like a bottle of Gordon’s gin not these other ‘green’ lenses you see which are almost grey.

I have the Shade of Pale pair. The lens colour is like a blush pink and just feels like everything is in a sunset. 😎 That and the Scarpa are the titanium pairs I have and they are definitely my favourites.

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 ?
Tinting definitely, so I can't see why transitions would be an issue. Blueblocking and transitions I'm not so sure about. I think that might be a no.

Input needed from JMM enthusiasts. I know the Last Frontiers are not universally loved for their extravagant temple hardware and cost. I concur that both are over the top.

That said, I tried on a pair of Arkansas Dark Havanas while checking out some other models and was surprised when the Mrs. declared them her favorites. While I know really only her opinion counts, looking for a gut-check from more neutral parties given the significance of the investment.

So tell me like it is: Do these work for me or not? Hit me with a THUMB if you think they're great or a SAD if you don't.

Constructive comments/feedback are welcomed, especially on the hardware. I don't want to risk being "trying too hard" guy if it's too much (as ironic as it is to say that in context of JMM).

Removed -- thanks to everyone who provided feedback!

If you can afford them, go for it. They fit your face great. I personally love the temple details and don’t think any of it is over the top. But then again, my gf accuses me of being “gaudy,” which is ridiculous.

If that shirt represents your general fashion, I think you can easily pull it off!

I'm in Illinois and the tax is crazy but some sites don't charge me taxes on frames.
Spoke too soon. Tried to order a pair off the JMM site and they’re now charging the full 10.25%+ Chicago sales tax (and not even just the lower IL tax which a number of online places do. Prob started using a service to do the calc and collection. Oh well.
