Each frame begins as a laminated sheet that is milled, shaped, and then hand-formed to perfection. Optical quality hinges and logos are hand set. All frames are fitted with wire injected temple cores.
Metal Alloy - Each signature frame features optical quality nickel silver metal alloy construction for strength, durability and a lightweight fit.

Pro Tip - Are polarized sunglasses better? Are they worth the price?
In many cases, yes. All sunglasses reduce brightness and block some amount of harmful UV rays. However, only polarized sunglasses are scientifically constructed to eliminate glare. Not just reduce it, but eliminate it. Polarized sunglasses are ideal for driving, where you get glare from your dash, your windshield and other vehicles. They perform much better than standard sunglasses – reducing eye strain and helping you see better – around water, snow, sand or any other reflective surroundings.
