I think eyecompany had them (gonzo's?) I was looking for a pair & sure Steenie said he had some of the aviators but sold out.

Recommend the Dita DTS121 in black iron - one of the nicest aviators I've tried on, above wants £810 for a pr Sad

Had a drastic on Friday, bird knocked a pair of Windsors out of my jacket at Westminster tube when getting off, bastards went down the gap between the doors and the safety glass, still waiting to see of they can recover. May get the above if I have to claim.

ivisionari.com seems to be the most reasonable dealer for JMM in the eu.

I've got JMM Yves opticals and they're the best frames I've ever had.

Get loads of comments on them too. Which is nice.

Séamus did a great job for me and was a really nice guy to deal with. Would highly recommend.

Managed to get a pair of Willem's and Jules for 50% off from Italist before. They are v. good with delivery as well. Haven't seen that many on sale this year. The quality is excellent but they are dear.

Dee - Am I missing something or have ivisionari just got the RRP in euros, rather than discounts etc? They seem to do 10% of first order too.

May have been lucky with the model even without the 10% they were considerably cheaper than uk stockist (seen and eye company)

I think they're long gone but I can ask around if you're serious. I presume you mean the gold ones.

Got a scratch on the lens of my sunbuddies. I have the original Type 06. Replaced them with the new version called Lubna, but they’re a very slightly different shape. Slightly smaller. Which is annoying.

Anyone seen any of the original Type 06 knocking around? Trawled the usual sites but can’t find any.

Best bet on eBay/Depop/Grailed for older models burny. I’m still rocking some type 04s from many years ago. love them so much and don’t feel the same about the newer models so I’ve been keeping an eye out on above sites
