Maui Jim Hula Blues

New limited edition Hula Blues Maui Jim sunglasses are here.  This is a collab that I was super excited to learn about.  Maui Jim has teamed up with a small independent eyewear brand out of Hungary called Vinylize that makes eyewear by handcrafting vinyl records into eyewear frames.  How cool is that!  The inlay of this limited-edition frame is detailed with artwork inspired from the original 1923 sheet music booklet from the original Hula Blues song written by Sony Cunha and John Avery Noble back in 1919.  You can find it on YouTube, and if you are planning a luau themed backyard party this summer you should definitely include it on the playlist.  Check out the video at the bottom...

Maui Jim Kawika in Blue Hawaii

Every once in a while Maui Jim, known for their great polarized lenses and generally more conservative designs and colors, creates a super fun design and color combo.  The Kawika is a classic clubman style frame that can look dressy or casual in the black color, but the Kawika has been released in a new color that is more trendy and fun.  This new color is crystal acetate and features Maui Jim’s Blue Hawaii lens.  For those of you that not familiar with Blue Hawaii, it is the newest Maui Jim lens that features a vibrant blue mirror.  If you haven’t tried the Blue Hawaii yet, I would suggest checking it out.  I would describe the color as being somewhere...

Fathers Day Eyewear Gift Guide

In this post I am going to highlight four possible eyewear gift ideas; a pair of sunglasses, eyeglasses, ready-made reading glasses, and ready-made reading sunglasses.  I will start with the sunglasses. Sunglasses.  One of the coolest sunglasses I have seen in some time now is the Vinson by Leisure Society, and dad is sure to agree! [caption id="attachment_16516" align="alignright" width="543"] Image Source: LeisureSociety.com[/caption] According to the Leisure Society company website this frame is "A vintage inspired “glacier glass” with reverence to the great mountain explorers who took on the ultimate opponent—nature.
