I picked up these Garrett Leight x Thierry Lasry No. 3 sunglasses when yet another pair of Ray Ban Wayfarers broke. The last pair broke when I was cleaning them. That was the last straw for me and so I decided to just go for it and buy quality."R0003485.JPG""R0003483.JPG""R0003482.JPG"

I just had a closer look at the newish Lunor Titan/Acitat models and the frame says handmade in Japan instead of handmade in Germany, it seems like the Japanese are that good at making hybrid Frames that even the pinacle of german Eyewear manufacturing collaborates with them  ;D

I tried on a cool pair of sunglasses by Rolf. These have a wooden frame and hinge.

My girlfriend's glasses were eight years old, and the prescription has drifted off. We popped into an optician's to get her eyes tested, and she ended up with a pair of Dita's.

I'm not sure why she's looking so grumpy there, as I paid for them! :D

i've gone through some of the back pages and saw jacques marie mage being mention. i'm wondering who has any, if so what (optical or sunnies) and care to share their opinion. looking to replace my max pittion which broke.

i've gone down to a store and seen a few models. they look pretty well built and really keen on pulling the trigger but i'd love to hear some thoughts first. also, if there's any other worthy brands, please mention..

I have two pairs of JMM from both their Made In Japan Heritage collection as well as their Made In Japan Optical - the Apache in Carbon and the Wyatt in Allan. Both have unbelievable construction and attention to detail, from the epoxy tipped arms to the acetate lining of the lenses.

To be completely honest with you, I don’t see myself buying any other brand. The proportions of everything I’ve tried on from them are perfect for my face/head size and the materials are top notch. I suggest if you can, looking at their Heritage collection as well as their standard Optical line.

@louisbosco, Henderson's Opticians in Melbourne have recently started stocking JMM. I'll point them out next time you're over.

I don't have a pair, but I'd agree with @bxh that they're well made. The metal frames, which I was looking at, feel a bit chunkier than some of the other makes. They maybe come up a bit larger than some of the Japanese brands, so it'll be a case of seeing what fits you.

I do like them, and I am tempted by a pair.

thanks! i'm not sure what range/collection i'm looking at. but i believe there's 2 models which i'm keen on, which are the jax and something else. (i forgot the name to the other pair) i'm quite conservative with frame designs so what i'm looking for is something close to like a wayfarer type. i believe the ones i looked at are both acetate models.

@Graeme unfortunately i'm not looking at their metal collection, although there's one which i'd fancy but i don't think suits me. there's a couple of stores here in perth too. although, i'm not really sure if it's more expensive in perth..

Thanks @steelworker. She's quite photogenic, which helps. :)

@louisbosco there were some acetate frames, but I think that there were more metal ones. I'll check next time I'm in town.
