Maui Jim Sunglasses
Maui Jim doesn't mess around. You can tell just from looking. This range of rugged sunglasses makes no apologies for its bold and uncompromising appearance. Mixing a strong and assertive outlook with a sporty and oceanic style, this is perfect for you if you want laid back luxury.
Not every product is for everyone. If it were, we wouldn't have such a great range. If you're after men's sunglasses, check out the Sugar Beach range and other wrap-arounds. If you like what you see, but you're not quite sold, you might like to check out our Hookipa or Palms range instead.
It's not for no reason that Forbes once listed Maui Jim as one of their things “worth every penny”. These high end glasses come direct from Hawaii, available with UV blocking polarised lenses, meaning safer eyes and more vivid colours. This is something the company prides itself on greatly, and that's fair enough. Their philosophy rests on the friendly “Aloha!” family attitude and philosophy. Your safety is their safety, and they take that personally.

Be sure to check if your prescription can come built in to the lenses, as this is a big selling point for Maui Jim. Their aim is to look after their customers' needs, and they take it seriously.
Founded in 1980, Maui Jim was just one beach stall in Lahaina, Hawaii, selling sunglasses to tourists who found themselves without. Sensing a gap in the market, Maui Jim set about developing lenses to keep the sun out, but let the colours in. It enjoyed great success in that endeavour, and the rest is history. By the company's own admission, the it has built a “cult following” in less than 40 years.
Far from resting on its laurels, Maui Jim went on to develop Maui Reader, and a Maui Passport prescription lens for wrap-around models which greatly increases sharpness and edge details. Their newest release is Maui HT which brings more vividness and clarity to low light conditions, allowing you to enjoy beautiful sunsets without compromising on eye safety.
The ability to build in a prescription is incredibly valuable. No more wandering around in the sun wearing fit-ons or clip-overs. Maui Jim has thought a step ahead, and is happy to present you with the perfect answer. Is the prospect of being able to leave the glasses in the hotel thrilling? Not being blind if you lose a pair of prescription lenses or contacts? We think that's pretty exciting, and so does Maui Jim.
