Maui Jim Sunglasses

Colour. Clarity. Details - Maui Jim offers the full perspective

As a Hawaiian proverb says, "Oi kau ka lau, E hana I ola Honua", live your life for as long as the sun is still shining.

The Maui Jim brand has taken this adage to heart in its very own way, so that Maui Jim Sunglasses and Prescription Glasses stand out from the crowd in the eyewear world. Despite having more than 700 employees, the traditional O'hana feeling is conveyed around the world with a mixture of Hawaiian serenity and Aloha spirit, which has given the company its personal touch since its establishment.

Aside from being exceptional comfortable due to the low weight frames, Maui Jim’s cool designs add a touch of the Hawaiian way of life. It’s not just for the quality of the frame materials but also for the clarity of vision they provide that makes Maui Jim Sunglasses famous around the world.

In particular, it was the Maui Jim Sunglasses PolarizedPlus2® glass technology that raised the US company to an absolute heavyweight in the eyewear business. Their lenses withstand even the harshest conditions, relying on more than just protection against glare and harmful UV rays, but also intensifying natural colours. No other eyewear manufacturer has succeeded in doing this so elegantly and in such detail in the highly competitive sunglasses market as Maui Jim.

History of Maui Jim Sunglasses

Already in 1980, the company started its success story as a one-man operation led by founder, William Hester. He launched his first models of Maui Jim Sunglasses on the Ka'anapali beach in Lahaina on Maui Island. What took the company to worldwide success was their focus on the quality of colours, so that even in glaring sunlight colours appear richer and more defined. Maybe that's one of the reasons why Hester was inspired by his colourful house parrot Jimmy, not only for the brand name but also for the Maui Jim logo.

Functionality and clear vision, especially regarding sophisticated lens technology, continue to be the focus of the company's philosophy, even though Maui Jim models have also become increasingly trendy and fashionable. New Maui Jim Sunglass creations are designed and tested under the most varied conditions at the main headquarters on the second largest Hawaiian island, while most of the production now takes place at other locations such as Peoria, Illinois or at the European headquarters in Braunschweig.

Maui Jim Sunglasses Fake vs Real

With increasing popularity, counterfeiters have also been keeping an eye on these sunglasses. You can easily spot fake Maui Jim Sunglasses by just a few details. On the one hand, there is the sunglasses price, which usually never drops below £130 and is therefore in the "premium price segment" for sunglasses. On the other hand, there is the curved lettering "Maui Jim" on the top of the right lens and on side of the temple, which should not be easy to scratch off. You can also spot a real Maui Jim by its weight. The motto here is: "The lighter the more likely". You should also avoid models that do not come in the Maui Jim case with the famous parrot-brand logo and the colourful Maui Jim bag, which you can also use as a cloth. And it is almost certainly a fake if the brand name is misspelt. Since replicas and imitations are now ten a penny, you should always remember: "keep your eyes wide open when purchasing eyewear!"

Who wears Maui Jim sunglasses?

Just like surfing, sunbathing on the beach, being in the open air or on the tennis court with such greats as David Ferrer and Martina Hingis or German pros like Sabine Lisicki or Philipp Kohlschreiber, the creations of Maui Jim are no longer an insider tip. Thanks to famous wearers like golf legend Ernie Els, the sunglasses have achieved a top reputation, which can easily compete with top brands such as adidas, Ray-Ban, Tom Ford, Carrera or Prada Sport.

For stars like singer Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, actors George Clooney, Jude Law and Brad Pitt, as well as Captain America actor Chris Evans and other celebrities like Ryan Gosling, David Beckham or Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street, the wonders of lens technology from the Maui Jim sunglass collections have become indispensable. Also, their fellow stars Morena Baccarin from the hit series Homeland, Jennifer Aniston, Megan Fox, Angelina Jolie, Miley Cyrus or the former US President Barack Obama let their eyes relax with a pair of Maui Jim's, even in the dazzling sunlight.

The Most Popular Maui Jim Sunglasses Models

The Maui Jim Sunglasses Lighthouse 423 is one of the most popular models from the 2017 collection. With a nylon frame and polarized lenses, the Hawaiians have set both technological and fashionable standards.

The Maui Jim Sunglasses Sugar Beach 421 offers a frameless look that adds a softer touch to your face. The model from the 2016 collection impresses with its exceptional UV protection and doesn't have to hide from the competition when it comes to the glamour factor.

Maui Jim is more than just functionality. The company proves this with the Maui Jim Sunglasses Makaha 405. The plastic frame provides light and airy wearing comfort and lets you even forget that you are wearing a pair of sunglasses.

The Maui Jim Sunglasses Byron Bay 746 is so versatile that it can be regarded as an all-rounder of the brand. With the full-rim design, a fashionable touch is added to any outfit, whether on the ski slopes, on the beach or in the city.

With the Maui Jim Sunglasses Hana Bay H434, the company has created unisex sunglasses that are a cut above the rest.

The full rim frame of the Maui Jim Sunglasses Black Coral 249 has been one of the top sellers for years. A few envious looks from those around you are inevitable when you wear such stylish sunglasses.

Looking for a metal frame in a gunmetal colour? May we introduce the Maui Jim Sunglasses Kahuna 162. There is no need for more intro at this point, because the Hawaiians simply let the design and optics speak for themselves.

Maui Jim Style - Sunny Prospects for Everyone

To this day, the Hawaiian company's products and models are still largely selling due to their unsurpassed lens technology and functionality, which, in addition to excellent craftmanship, is an important aspect of Maui Jim Sunglasses quality. However, those responsible for design have made quantum leaps over the past few years, and the combination of fashion + functionality has helped make the label increasingly popular across the globe. You won’t always find current trends at Maui Jim, because the brand sets their own trends, preferring to categorize their sunglasses as a classic or vintage style. Because of their exacting clientele, the brand focuses less on how the world perceives them and more on how they perceive the world.

Technology - Why are Maui Jim Sunglasses So Good?

The Hawaiians are the absolute market leader in terms of sunglass frame and lenses - quasi a manufacturer with the highest standards, since just “good” is not good enough for this label. Their lens and frame technology and comfort mean Maui Jim sport sunglasses are a favourite among sportspeople, from fishing-lovers and surfers to golfers and hikers.

There are seven different layers on the Maui Jim silicate lenses, while the Maui Jim plastic lenses have nine different layers. In addition, a surface hardening is applied, as well as antireflective coatings on the back surface of the lenses, while another coating is added on the top and bottom of the lenses on the front surface for a twofold filtering of the incoming sunlight. Moreover, by using precious minerals, the lenses achieve a gain in colour that does not darken the environment, but faithfully reproduces it.

Maui Jim, therefore, masters the handling of colour and clarity like no other sunglasses manufacturer in the world. The reputation of the company is based on the development of advanced technologies for dual and single gradient mirrors with and without prescription lenses. These reduce 100 percent of the harmful UVA and UVB rays and eliminate 99.9 per cent of the glare from the sunlight that enters from above and below as well as from behind the lenses. Only Maui Jim integrates up to nine different protective layers in each of the lenses. One of them is the patented polarized Polarized Plus2® technology, which makes colours look lively and intense. The polarised lenses work especially well to block out glaring reflected light, whether out at sea, fishing in a lake or skiing through the snow.

Not without reason has Maui Jim received the Skin Cancer Foundation's recommendation seal for its products. The manufacturer of these high-quality polarizing sunglasses lenses is thus one of the three sunglasses manufacturers worldwide who are allowed to add the renowned seal as a symbol for safe and effective sun protection.

This includes the Maui Jim Blue Hawaii collection. This collection consists of several runaway successes thanks to lenses which were inspired by the vibrant blue colours of the island of Maui. The stylish look offers the same advantages in terms of visual performance that Maui Jim has made since its establishment.

Exactly these benefits make the creations of Maui Jim top of its game in the polarized sunglasses market.
