Bit smaller on face compared to my Dealans but still think they look good.
Matteo is a great guy and does very good prices!

He marked down too which was much appreciated.

I see that JMM have switched the cases since my last purchase. I received only a leather sleeve with my Dealans but the Jeffs have come with a proper case. Glad to see they have changed it as the sleeve doesn’t feel like it would give sufficient protection if the glasses were in a bag or something.

If any of the JMM fanboys have a spare hard case going please get in touch. Willing to pay for it, just not the $50++ from their website.

It depends on the frame. They still do the leather sleeve but the titanium frames and special editions in the leather cases.

Yeah he meant to on mine but forgot so owes me a discount again he said. Eye-wink

The Jeff case is Black as it's a special collaboration but it depends on what you get. My Dealan Cortina did not come with a case, just the normal leather one.

This whole thread should be called the Big Head Crew.

Not jealous at all…

Mine still ended up being too small and they were one of the larger models Laughing out loud

Surely some smaller ones that would fit you mate?

I bought an optical pair about 3 years ago (Zephyr?) and managed to convince myself until I got home.

I think the metal frames are okay, but metal is not really what I want from a JMM pair.

Edit: Zephirin

Like the Clyde's in brown tortoise, I mean it's only 2 or 3 pairs of normal sunglasses.

Mallon + Taub have some pairs as well. END may do in Soho, so could be good for going to The Eye Company.

If it helps in future, Nice Bazaar Studio in Glasgow and Seen in Manchester are good for others if needed.

Zoom, there is a dealer in Lewes as well if you need any more pairs. Eye-wink

I've found buying from dealers in italy to be best. If you are confident what frame you want, 1269 in Miami is a great shout as well. They mark down and Eric there is really knowledgeable and gets a good range.

My brother recently emigrated to LA, I’ve already got a pair of Jax en route to his. Worked out so much cheaper getting them from America.

Well you're basically good to go! It is a hell of a lot cheaper direct and have much better choice!

Thinking about the 'white light' in Hickory or Dark Havana. Would want a way to return them as expect I can't try on in person (or would just buy in person).

Is it just for the frame to try? There's a black fade pair on Niche Bazaar Studio in Glasgow.
