Thats a really nice one @Giles I like myself a Transparent Frame.

I brought my JMM´s to the Optometrician on Monday, they are gonna be made with Zeiss Lenses that have a 25%-0% brown tint. Expensive AF but i really liked the look of the brown Glasses in the brown frame so i sort of kept it like that.

Agreed @Giles when you read about JMM and look at Photos you have a certain expectation but having it in front of you with the rolex-esque Box and then the Glasses themselves with those insane details and little specialities are another thing.

Jerome Mage did a podcast a couple years back, and he comes across as a completely passionate, obsessive guy, He really reminded me of some characters you find in the Japanese denim circles...

Obsessive and passionate people are my absolutely favorite people.  Introduce me to someone who's obsessively passionate about ANYTHING and I won't leave their side all night, no matter what that obsession is.

So glad you like them, G!  Now you need to find a pair of your own <cough>remember-those-aren't-yours</cough> :D

It is our anniversary today, so I gave @Madame Buttonfly the JMM's.  Suffice to say, I think she quite likes them  ;) ;) ;)

Happy Anniversary @Giles and @Madame Buttonfly!

My other half was introduced to JMM the other day, and she liked the Taos and Kelly. Now she's angling for me to get her a pair, and the custom ground lenses to match her crazy astigmatism. :o
