I know Moscot have quite a few stores there and as some of the guys above have said, the quality is exceptional

If anyone wants to get on the Jacques Marie Mage bandwagon, End Clothing are doing 20% off for Black Friday. And someone here has to buy the awesome orange Whiskeyclone pair, because they don't suit me.

Twelvesixtynine will give you a free collector's case with any order.

Do the JMM Releases Follow a System ? Are there reapearing Models or can a Model be done at any time and never come back ?

It looks like JMM has a few standbys and then some are a fleeting design, @Steffen. The other JMM fans may be more well-versed than I am about the brand. Which you looking to pick up? I happen to love mine.

@Joberwocky I got a pair of the lilac Rays in the sale. I'm not sure if they're going to suit me, how they'll fit, or whether they'll work with my prescription, but I figured that either they'll be completely awesome or a complete disaster or the coolest thing ever.

@Steffen I think that JMM re-release some styles from time-to-time, but generally in different colours. I was looking for the Ringo model earlier this year and couldn't find it anywhere. They haven't done another run, so it looks like I've missed out.

Thanks for the Infos @henry_david and @Graeme I am eyeing either the Enzo, which is ATM not available in Brown in Germany and the biggest Dealer doesnt know if or when he will get brown Enzos again. The Alternative would be the Kaine which is available in Brown but only as Sunglasses, does that matter at JMM or are they identical anyways ?

@Steffen 1269 have a pair of Argyle (brown) Enzos in the US, if you're willing to take the import duties.

Otherwise I think that the sun and optical frames are identical.

That is a nice and really well sorted online shop, thanks for the info @Graeme

In the Future that will be an Option but I actually never had a JMM on my Face so I try to stay in germany for the possibility to send the Glasses back if they look stupid on me  :D Postage to the US is insane at the moment, I´ve send something a view Weeks back and it costed a massive 40€ and took 3-4 Weeks  ???

That makes sense.

The other thing is to try on a pair of similar sized frames and see how they fit. That'll give you an indication of your chosen pair.
