Yep had a pair of Fitz that came like that. I used some silverware polish and it did the trick. The gold hardware holds up remarkably nice given the sand, heat, and salt water I’m usually around. Don’t even try to polish the gold hardware though cause it will turn silver

thanks, a frame that costs that much, stored well, and barely worn shouldnt patina in less than a year.
Yeah but it’s real silver. At least you know it’s real silver which gets a tarnish on it in a short space of time unless friction applied - so a silver ring won’t tarnish much as it’s in constant contact with other fingers but the silver arrow hinge pins …

Almost any jeweller will give away a polishing cloth in the same way that optical shops give away those lens cleaning cloths. A bit rub with that and they’ll be shining like new.

Glad to see you're in, sir. Is that the Squarzi Dealan?
Correct.
These along with my reserve Comanche are my favourite JMMs.
If I see the right pair of Last Frontiers that might be my last before I fall any further down the rabbit hole. Not many available right now and not sure if/when the next release will be but if you’re gonna dream - dream big!

Which model specifically are you chasing? My local store has some stock.

I definitely want the oversized arrows at the temples and the turquoise thunderbirds on the tips (not the beaded ones!). Either rover or havana, not black or royal. (Not sure what other colours they came in).
I don’t like the red clouds or Laramie, not sure of all the other frame option names.
Santa Fe in Roger would be cool but I’m probably too late for them. More recently Rawlins looked interesting but they were opticals not sunglasses. I’d need to throw some more $$ to get tinted lenses but I do have a mild prescription so in that case could get some PSV discount!
On the rare occasion I see LFs that aren’t priced ridiculously over MRP they are ‘in store only’ so not easily available to buy online. Any suggestions / help much appreciated.

Just picked up the new Plaza ( I think that’s the name lol) in a matte grey with purple lens from the new collection I’ll post when received.
Looking forward to seeing those.

These Upsetters look interesting with the checkered hardware. I'm upset I can't find any more pics online o_O

Anyone willing/able to share pics of the new models or colors? I can’t seem to find any online either with the exception of the Instagram pictures. Looks like Gogosha is currently having a “preview event”.
