Not really got the JMM hype from previous pics but Pad and Essex fit pics have made them look miles better.

Well out of my price range sadly, struggled with paying £130 for my Moscot Lemtosh TBH but I do love them.

Have you looked at JMM's metal frames? Very over-engineered with fantastic attention to detail. That's what the big boys buy.

Laughing out loud Decided to flip some shoes and clothes and jump back on the JMM train. It seems to be an annually thing.

I only have the Seberg and Scarpa, which are lighter frames, but have had the Bandit (or maybe Reynolds) and Jagger before and they are amazingly light and are great to wear. Would love to have a look at some of their Hunter S Thompson pieces to see what they are like irl.

The El Dorado, Yuma and Cody are pretty special too.

I've never handled them as I said previously mate. I did come across those silverfox JMM frames and the jagger cortina and they are both titanium and I do like the design, but they look so dainty and delicate in pictures, want to find somewhere I can try a few on.

Can recommend Eye Gallery (think Dee has bought JMM from them too). Only one of those in Soho. Adam Simmonds has good stock. M+T is overpriced.

The Eye Company probably has the biggest selection of JMM in London.

I'm looking at the possibility of Made in Japan for the next batch.

Dickens Eye Clinic is my local and has a massive range but no website, if anyone is looking for something I can have a look if they have it - I’ve found they’re overpriced vs Seen & Niche Bazaar Studio but will match pricing if you email them.

Cheers, the Eye Company is literally a few mins walk from where I’m headed, let’s see if I’ll be converted.

Not much from London trip. Couple o bits from Clutch & Drake's & ordered a couple of pieces from The Great Frog. Spent a lot on eating out.
