    The Best Sunglasses You'll Ever Own

    Serving as an ode to the extraordinary, The Empires are relentless in their pursuit of sophistication that never goes out of style.

    NASA INSPIRED STRENGTH

    Made with Aerospace Grade Titanium (same stuff as fighter jets), they are ultra strong and deceptively lightweight.

    PREMIUM QUALITY MEMORY-MOLD ACETATE

    The highest quality acetate to retain fit for the ultimate in comfort.

    Highest Optical Quality Around

    Made of Japanese Nylon, our lenses are half the weight of glass lenses, they don't scratch, and have amazing optical quality, so you'll see the world in HD!

    Our Next-Gen polarization reduces glare & eye strain. We integrate the polarizing & tint layers all the way through the lens. It won't flake off and will last forever.

    THEY STAY PUT

    With Titanium frames & super light lenses, The Empire is perfectly rear-balanced and will stay planted on your beautiful face.

    THE FRAMES DON'T SCRATCH

    We looked at drill bits, knives, firearms, and F1 race car pistons to create our own scratch-resistant 'Armour' protective coating.

    THEY LAST

    We've taken every step to make sure The Empire will last forever. We're so confident, we've put a lifetime warranty on every pair.

    ENJOY YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE WORRY-FREE! IF YOU LOSE 'EM, WE GOT YOU!

    Amazing look

    Feels great. Fits perfect. It will be tighter on a larger face tho. I don't wear it everyday but pairs well by the beach or if you're looking for that extra flash

    Crazy Impressed.

    After 2 1/2 years these bad boys are still in fantastic shape. Minimal scratches on the lenses even after getting dropped on concrete, asphalt, being carried in a backpack, you name it! Definitely light weight - after first opening them I thought they'd be scratched af or broken in a year, but here they are still looking hella nice. 👌🔥 Well done, guys!
