Hi friends. I'm letting a pair of Walkers in Walnut go if anyone in the US is interested. Looking for $649.

The total frame width is measured with farthest point to each other from each side. In this case 150MM is from each protuding tips.

On the other hand Kobo is 143MM. Kellerman is 144MM that because the two ends joining the frame after emblems are bit wider. The Kellerman looks perfect on smaller face. Mishima is 147MM. But again, they are measuring two ends point with after the emblems. That frame felt wide and big. But that's a style.

Now I think of it, Eva may look okay. the 150MM from each tips will be wider on the temple level and not on eye level. and 53mm lens width from widest point within the frame would be similar to any other JMMs rectangular frames.

It is just that they feel bit feminine. I don't think would be good for eyeglasses. I would rather get Standiford for eyeglasses.
Ahhh that makes a lot more sense now, thank you.

Yeah the Eva is quite feminine. I find JMMs feminine frames to be more interesting, they're often sharp and angular.

I’m not aware of any photochromatic lens that turns that color green. Is that transitions emerald maybe? Love the base tint. Is that a yellowish brown? Very nice. I approve wholeheartedly.
Love this!!! What's colour is base tint? And what transitions (gen8 or xtractive) colour it goes to? if you don't mind sharing that?
The lenses are 20% moss green with grafite transitions

So I believe a base tint 20% moss green, then Gen 8 Graphite Green transitions.

@obecity I thought transition lenses are essentially all made by one company Esillor. Graphite green is a shade option for Gen 8 transitions. Not sure if it was in previous gens.

Ooooooh! Graphite green! I know that color. Sorry for my confusion. Thank you. Great lens treatment!

So I asked this question a while back without an answer and then reached out to JJM. They do offer original lens replacement. It was $150. Passing along in case anyone finds that useful.
That is good to know but oof. Can get way better lenses put in for around the same, as long as you don't care about them being the same as original.

Yeah and as discussed in here JMM lenses often aren’t that special.
I got my LF Rawlins and they came with clear optical dummy lenses. I sent them to zoom for blue lenses but was disappointed with the result - nice colour but not dark enough.
A few years ago I was looking for replacement lenses for a pair of New Wayfsrers and was about to buy some off eBay until I noticed that the vendor was not far from me in Clearwater FL so I went in person to get them replaced.
For some reason I’d forgotten about this until recently but took my Rawlins there a couple of weeks ago. The place is called ’Fuse Lenses’ they put in midnight blue flash lenses in while I waited and with a cleaning cloth and fluid it came to $50. I’m much happier with how they look. They don’t have a massive range but do have some more exotic flash (subtle mirror) colours.
