    I'm selling a nearly mint condition pair of Maui Jims I bought last year, only because I've decided to go with the same aviator style in a brown lens. These sunglasses are of the highest optical quality of any maker I've ever seen. I bought them at full retail last year from a brick and mortar store in San Francisco. Maui Jim's never seem to go on sale, and the lower prices online are usually seconds or dubious fakes. These are polarized and the feel is incredible, the way MJ designed the non slip nose pads. They are definitely the most comfortable sunglasses I own. His prices seem to be going up. I just had to pay $310 to get a similar pair of aviators in brown, the Guardrails.

    I'm taking a big loss on these, but since I have multiple pairs and these haven't been worn in more than 6 months, they need to find a new home. The frames are in 100% mint condition. The lenses are 95%. The right lens, under very close examination shows a very very fine spec, smaller than a grain of salt, that I couldn't even capture using the macro lens on my Canon. It can hardly be seen and it certainly isn't noticeable when wearing them. The pictures will speak for themselves. The sunglasses will ship with everything as if you walked in to the store and bought it new, including the unused original cleaning cloth, ( I have several others I use) original case, pouch, card insert, and even the box all in mint condition. I paid $270 for them, so you're getting a steal on them at $150. I'll ignore ridiculous low ball offers. Shipping is included in the Continental US. I accept Paypal + 3%. Feel free to ask any questions.

    The last time I wore these, I was standing looking at the ruins of Machu Picchu. So, they come with a bit of cool history too.
