I can't handle it. Makes me eyes water if the glasses are in the case and it's been blasted. I got a pair of the 1980 with the gradient lenses and the book was spritzed. Exchanged for the light blue lenses and the replacement had the case soaked. Kicking myself for not waiting to send back the first pair and keeping the not smelly case.

It's definitely the same sent from late 2021 is all I can say.

Any tips other than febreeze (I'm not worried about resale value) or white vinegar to unperfume the hardshell cases?

Yeah, putting fragrance on objects is BS. First, some people are sensitive to fragrance. And even for those that aren't, not 100% of those people are going to like whatever specific single fragrance you choose. Some of us live in tiny-ass apartments, and whatever fragrance you soak a non-washable item is going to permeate the whole place.

I once had a company splash an awful fragrance on a piece of clothing. I've washed that f*cker 7 times and I can still smell it.

Hi all - after your thoughts on the Molino optical size on me please. I’ve had them for a while now and I love the army color, but have never been 100% convinced they’re quite big enough for my large head. Thanks!

Thoughts on where JMM can improve in the future?

This is nitpicking, but there is a circle of glue residue where the temple arm attaches to the frame.

Also, would love to see some kind of "making of" video for how the frames are made.

Where do I start…the glue blob at the end of the arms (no excuse for this), the stupid pin on the left arm they refuse to update on the Dealan, Ascari, Taos…line up the exposed wires in the middle of the arm, all the Enzo’s I bought had the wire crooked and it looked really weird. Lastly I’ve had 3 frames with creaking lenses. Cmon JMM

Got good news for you. Here's a pic of the Dealan in Camel available for pre-order.

Finally :) did you know they used to air brush them out on some models a couple years ago…



With prices going up you can start doing the “big ask” with JMM haha

“Oh I put it at 10k but I’ll let it go for 5k, don’t twist my arm bro!”
I didn't know that. I suppose that's possibly the case here. Guess you'll just have to buy one and find out.

Here’s a great example I kept emailing JMM about (you can see where it was edited out). The thinner wires were better imho too looking back now

I’d be cautious. Look at the photos for the Indigo Dealan. Side view shows the pin but the close up has no pin. Can’t be the same frame.
