Fellini's are a great pair. Quick thick but not as much as the Ascari or Enzo. Walker and Saint are good options as well.

Any of you JMM boys got a pair of Yves? My napper is fucking massive so looking to find their widest frames, wondering if the Yves are as big as they look.

The yves is massive yes. Check Styleforum as some guys on there have the Yves and you can see on face.

According to this they're 147mm wide which is pretty big. Most big-ish "normal" sunglasses are 140 to 144mm.

I have the Fellini's as I have a roman nose and they are relatively chunky. Definitely worth looking at the full range as the JMM model also has quite a large face/head and seems to suit everything!

The chunky frames from them are things like Ascari, Enzo, Walker, Fellini, Yves, Buckley and some of the Aviator types like Cortina, Montana, Felson etc.

I think Dee has the Felson's?

I think he's worried about fitting his head into the frames, not whether or not they'll suit him. The chunkier they are (the thickness of the temples / arms specifically) the less room there'll be between the temples.

Thanks both. Yes Andy that's right - I make most 'normal' sunglasses look like those ones Morpheus wore in The Matrix due to the size of my head/width of my face.

Managed to find a couple of models of Persol that work and just about get away with Moscot Lemtosh in the 52 extra wide size Laughing out loud

Are these a goner? Or any recommendations where I can get them fixed?

Cost £300 so would rather try get them fixed before getting another pair.

Left the same pair in a cab a few months ago, and only just replaced them.

Might be worth trying the guy Andy recommends for lens replacements - think he does frame repairs too https://www.theopticalworkshop.com/

I have a pair of cutler and gross sunglasses that have delicate metalwork - model 1267. The arms (temples?) seem loose from me accidentally treading on them. Are they ruined forever or is this fixable?

When the temples are in the open position does everything line up?

Stepping on them may have just freed up the screws in the hinges a bit. Have you tried tightening them?

They seem screwed well. Maybe the hinge is broken? The temples used to be sturdy now both are limp.

Stepping on them could have prised the hinges apart slightly which would make them loose. I'd ask Cutler & Gross if anything can be done.
