Interestingly the Quentin has the same total frame width measurement as the Cash (147mm). I tried both on and Quentin feels narrower. Does anyone know if they are the same or whether the measurements on the JMM website might be wrong?

The Quentin is definitely narrower - seems like it’s more on par with the width of the Yves

I think throwing away a perfectly fine set of frames is a bit too much. I assume because of the extra dot? Donate them to charity or sell them at a discount. My idea is the much better strategy.

This is a very dumb strategy. Donate? To the poors?

Sorry, these frames are going to the garbage dump. If you want them, find them in the pacific ocean garbage patch in 10 years.

If you give me ten dollars I’ll take them off your hands. Twenty if you post them to me. PM for address.

The pin hole doesn’t bother me much but the easiest solution is for JMM just to not bother with the cameo badge on the inner frame anyway. Would anyone care (or even notice) if they stopped putting them on?

My newish Fellinis don't have the blob of glue at the hinges. Not sure I would have noticed if it wasn't for this thread.

Still nice to see an improvement.

Does anyone understand tongue in cheek? Playful ribbing? Sarcasm? Hyperbolic ridiculousness?
