They are 48 mm, which for the shape is generously sized. The once ubiquitous OP Gregory Peck is a similar shape, so a comparison may help. The original iteration of the Gregory Peck was 45 mm, the medium size is 47 mm, and the large size is 50 mm (which I find best used as a sunglass).
I tried them on as both an opticals and a sunglasses.
So much better to shop for eyewear in person. You will ultimately save time and make better decisions.I want to thank @bry2000 @ColdinMN @elisiX @dieworkwear and @d4nimal for responding with advice to my question a couple weeks back on local stores vs online. Turns out the most easily accessible shop for me was the JMM store on Abbot Kinney and I was able to take a glorious 30 minutes to myself and swing by the other day. The store itself is wonderful and the staff were super nice in letting me try on a few things. I felt a little sheepish because I just wanted to look at and try on everything, but also didn’t want to waste their time knowing I’d probably want to do more thinking before committing to a pair. After combing through this thread and handling the glasses in person, I’m pretty sure I’ll be getting a pair in the near future. I want something a little eccentric without being too out there, so I’ve narrowed it down so far to Domoto (noir or argyle) and Fumio (noir). I didn’t know about the Insley yet, so didn’t ask to see if they had it in stock. I saw it while browsing 1269’s site and it looked interesting. As an aside, how come 1269 is able to offer their JMM’s below retail?
One question as I plan out my purchase — has anyone gotten their prescription filled at JMM directly? I’d be buying for optical and had always just gone to my local vsp optician or Costco. Does filling at JMM offer any advantage? I’d probably go for straight optical, or maybe transition if I choose the Domoto.
You look good in so much stuff. Love your new frames.View attachment 1738493
