Sunglasses NOT owned by Luxottica - Page 6

post #76 of 83
The issue with Bright Futures is that the product is all too sportswear looking, nothing classic or vintage.
The issue with Sutro is that the collection is fully out of touch, it's very 2005, hence the type of musicians they have sponsoring the brand.
I'm really into finding brands which are both modern but stick to classic styles with very good quality of materials.
Tetsuya Okada, this guy.. he kills it. Not only has he been in the industry for 25 years, his vision is unreal when it comes to eyewear. Granted i do business with him, but i've found it hard to find anybody better in the past 10 years. I'm always looking for a better or more enlightened product, yet in some segments it's hard to get past the top quality mass market items.

I would love to start a thread here where we can discuss eyewear not produced by a large brand, there are so many talented designers but they're overshadowed by the big money which is the big three of eyewear.

I can't speak for E but I imagine like myself they have an issue with monopolistic corporations that buy up what had once been flagship brands and turn them into over priced junk.

Maui Jim used to be a part of Luxottica but left them in 2009. 


I believe Maui Jim has the best optics and clarity of any Sun glasses I've tried. They're also keep getting lighter (and more fragile). I tend to get a headache with heavy sunglasses. 


I own around 10 pairs of Maui Jim, because I buy a new pair every year, for the last 10 years. Their customer service is bar the best in the world. 


They replaced my lenses for free when they were showing some discoloration.

I've been looking for a thread like this for ages! I created an account just so I could post here.

I'm wondering what you guys think of chilli beans sunglasses? How are they quality wise ? Are try worth the price? I'm seeing prices between 50 and 100 usd. Some of the styles are attractive!
