It's not something I've heard of.

Thanks Andy. I spoke to my opticians today and apparently there is 1 company who can produce a transition prescription lens with gradient tint however the optician said they only have done a few and were not particularly happy with the results so have stopped offering this.

Also I agree they are usually worn by 'special people' so I will just get a pair of gradient tints made up and wear with my contacts Smiling

I think there's probably an issue with the transition effect not activating properly due to the gradient of the tint.

I have a pair of brand new JMM Willem's that I may look to move on. Where's the best place to start? Grailed, Vestaire Collective etc?

Have a look at Pewpols (disclaimer, I design for them), some of their models have a similar overall feel albeit with less in the way of detailing.

I posted this a year ago in reply to someone looking for similar brands to Jacques Marie Mage. There isn't really anything directly comparable at a lower price though, it's a pretty unique brand.

If you can wait a couple of days (!) there's a new Irish brand launching called Pewpols that may have the kind of thing you're looking for.

A while back TK Maxx had Mikli x Subcrew colab that was similarly chunky.
Long gone now but they do come up on EBay so might be worth checking.

Might be more helpful.

Don't look like anything too special. Basic wayfarer-style with blue tint lens.
