I just had the opportunity of trying the Percier in Noir. Would love to hear everybody's honest opinions on how they look on me.

@cityofdelusion They look fine. The width is on point, they may be a tad tall. I would try a slightly more oval frame to see if you like them better.

I thought this too but grew into it over time..

IMO it is really hard to tell from pictures how glasses look. Maybe it's just me. When I saw Dealan online, I thought it was too cat-eyed for me. When I tried them on in the flesh, they looked great and were a viable option (but not as good for me as Walker).
Think it, be it.

First of all, thank you so much for your feedback @Kasi, @louisbosco, @JDelage and @mclaincausey - I appreciate you taking the time. Also: Now I understand what you were talking about @louisbosco - these glasses are really nice and nicer than I ever imagined them to be.

For some weeks, I researched all of the styles that JMM has (or had) to offer, to the point that I was even able to consult the optician in the store :) I hope not to hurt anybody's feelings here but the only - and I mean only - style I like by JMM is the Percier. I currently only own a single pair of opticals (Fila) and they are not even comparable to JMM in any way but perhaps the style. That's why I wanted something much more qualitative yet subtly different than what I already own. My philosophy is that I'd rather wait years if I have to in order to find the right pair that I'd be comfortable with wearing (both in terms of style and comfort) than buying something I will end up selling in a few weeks or months because it was some kind of FOMO or hype. Even if I had endless money to spend, I'd stick to this philosophy. Thus, should I ultimately decide that these do not fit my face in terms of the style, I will give up on buying JMMs at all, until, perhaps one day something more fitting is released... or another brand can match up to the specifics that I came to mainly like in JMM such as e.g., the quality and attention to detail.

Overall, my current opinion on these glasses is that the quality and details are very (!) nice. When I put them on, I feel like there is nothing better I could, or more importantly, want to buy for the price it comes at. I'm not a materialistic person but when I put these on, I feel like my appearance is "complete", if it makes sense. However, perhaps due to them being different than the pair I currently own, I felt that something - I'm thinking it could be the nose bridge of the glasses - threw me off a little right when I tried them in the store. That does not mean that I do not like them though but that I perhaps just need to imagine myself more wearing a subtly different style than what I have been wearing so far. One of my friends also pointed out that my face "disappears" behind the thick frame and thus may not be well suited for me. But that could also either be due to the shadow on the first and glare on the second photo or because they simply are designed to be thicker. At first, I agreed and now I'm leaning more towards a "they actually look nice?" the more I imagine myself wearing them. The optician in the store said that they fit me perfectly (pupils centered etc.) and that they looked just right (not too big, not too small - which is also my opinion). As a conclusion, I'm seriously considering buying them. And if I do, I'm thinking of getting them in the upcoming color "Marquina" (full black everything with transparent nose pads) instead of the Noir, because I want something rather "simple" and "common" that only I know is different or people who are familiar with the brand would ever notice. I don't know what will ultimately make me decide but I'm getting impatient :)
