    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.

    4 Years old still no issues

    I've had these glasses for 4 years now and only minor scratches on the lens and I've had to tighten the hinge a few times. If someone asked me what's the best purchase you've ever made this is gonna be the answer. I wear them traveling, for construction work, & casually. Thought about requesting a new pair because of the minor scratches but it's more of an inconvenience to not have them for 1 week then the tiny scratches on it. Will never turn to another company for sunglasses.

    Exceptional!

    As an Aussie I've grown up with sunnies practically glued to my face since I was born and though I've been through a myriad of brands over the years, WP have been the standout. The Empire is not only striking to look at but really is as durable as they say. These sunnies have been with me all over the world in all sorts of environments and stood the test. Treat yourself, you won't be disappointed
