Glad to be of service. Eye-wink I did look at the Tortoiseshell of them. I have a few pairs on order, which should be arriving over the next few weeks, including Vintage Tort Ascaris, so held off.

What other pair have you got coming?

Hanto you’re an animal. Got the Rodeo coming and also just won a pair of Torinos on the bay. All my existing pairs save the Moscot x CP collab going on sale imminently.

Rodeo is a great pair. They do a Buffalo leather one, which is around £1500! Torinos are nice too.

I have 7 pairs currently and 4 in the post. They are addictive. I had some OPs last year, as well as Eyevan, but none of them come close and all got returned in the end. If you are after Moscot types, try the Zephirin 47, Clark (maybe) or Nokona/Comanche.

As I said before, get in the SF JMM thread! Must be top 5 most active threads on the whole of Styleforum and people regualary post fit pics on there. There is one on Facebook too.

Why the hype with the MMM frames? Not seen them irl but they don't look to be the same quality as the likes of dita?

Can't say I have seen much Dita irl, but they are none for their acetate rather than titanium frames. Plus I find Dita's stuff quite bland/modern in styling whereas JMM tends to do retro/nostalgia type frames. Plus they know marketing and use the same limited quantity tactics as Visvim so try to create an aura of exclusivity and collectability. Same with Matsuda tbh as far as Dita is concerned and collectability, with the exception of the T2 Sarah Connor frames being pretty hyped. I would say Matsuda is closer to JMM in ethos, packaging, etc.

Quality is much better than Dita.

Yeah Ditas designs tend to be quite safe and stick to the aviator style and yes not many of their frames are acetate only. I do like the design of some of the JMM frames, just never handled them.
I see, yes I did notice some of their frames were made in ridiculously low numbers like 150.

From looking at pics, imo, that doesn't seem to be the case. The thing I like about Dita's is the details and the over-engineering. You notice little details and touches months after and the use of materials does make them feel special. An acetate frame, for me, doesn't have the same luxurious feel.

Owning both - I can say for me JMM are better. if you like the little details - then JMM overdo it on that exact thing. Plus are built like a brick shit house. Do a Swede and buy a pair and send them back.

I will definitely check them out, if you have owned both and prefer the JMM's they must be nice.
lol id probably order about 5 pairs and keep one or two as not a huge amount of sunnies suit me.

Black/green - always thought Pad’s look decent and the 15 points off tipped me over

Good work. If people are looking for others let me know as I have been doing enough research recently that I may be able to find a discount code/good price somewhere!
