Black Armour Coating
We examined drill bits, knives, firearms, & F1 race car pistons to develop our own titanium protective coating. Our "Armour" is strong and scratch-resistent.
Laser Etched Arms
Each one of our titanium arms is laser engraved to ensure it stands the test of time. It's the details that matter, and we think it is the perfect finishing touch.
Japanese Nylon Lenses
Twice the scratch resistance of glass lenses & amazing optical quality means you'll be seeing the world in HD. WP lenses weigh less than half of the weight of traditional glass lenses so they don't slide down your nose when you lean forward. Truly the world’s best lens.
Titanium frames & ultra light lenses greatly improve the center of balance, which makes for a comfortable fit & helps ensure the glasses stay planted on your beautiful face.
Aerospace Grade Titanium Arms
Made from the same materials used in Fighter Jets; they’re extremely strong, but also deceptively light.
Neutralize glare & reduce eye strain. Our Lifelong lenses go one step further integrating both polarizing & tint layers all the way through the lens so it will last forever.

AEROSPACE GRADE TITANIUM
The strongest metal for it’s weight, which allows you to use your sunglasses actively without worrying about them breaking. Our Signature frames are crafted with the highest quality Aerospace grade titanium, which is the same material used in F1 Fighter jets, spacecraft, missiles, and Top-Of-The-Line cars. Titanium is the reason our frames are super strong, yet deceptively light. They’re light enough to take anywhere and tough enough to make it there.
Our titanium frames are coated with a unique “Armour coating” in both gold and black, to keep them looking brand new, while preventing them from chipping or scratching. This same protective coating is used in military grade firearms, so you know it’s strong!
Our titanium frames and ultralight lenses make for perfectly balanced sunglasses and blue blockers. They are rear-weighted to stay in place on your beautiful face.
REINFORCED TITAN HINGES
Extremely durable single-barrel hinges to ensure your frames stay in place

REAR WEIGHTED BALANCE
Ever had sunglasses fall down your nose? We HATE that! Proper sunglass fitment is taken to heart. By using a thick titanium and ultralight lens, we are able to greatly improve the center of balance.
The Empire frames come with the highest quality Japanese nylon polarized lenses. They are light, durable, clear and are shatter and scratch resistant unlike glass or inferior acrylic lenses.
World's Lightest Polarized Lenses
Lenses are taken VERY seriously around here. What's the point in making awesome sunglasses if the optics are crappy? We literally searched all around the world looking at various types of lenses. From Glass, Polycarbonate, CR39, Acrylic, and Nylon. Each one has its merits but we wanted something truly exceptional. We are extremely proud to introduce William Painter's Lifelong Lenses.
They are the lightest in the world, less than half the weight of traditional glass lenses. Our lenses are PREMIUM - they cost more to produce than an entire pair of “high end” brands.
Our LifeLong Lenses go one step further. We integrate both the polarizing and tint layers all the way through the lens, so it will last forever.
SEE THE WORLD IN HD
Polarized lenses neutralizes glare, clear up objects and reduce eye strain. They work especially well on car windshields, oceans or lakes and other high glare environments. Typically lenses have a polarizing and tint coating added to the top of the lens to achieve this effect. Over time, however, the polarizing and tint can bubble and flake off of the lens. Have you ever seen a bad tint job on a car? Same problem. With The Empire that problem is solved with LifeLong Lenses.
PRESCRIPTION READY LENSES
Our frames are made prescription ready. You can take them to your local optometrist and have your prescription put in with ease.
We want you to have only the very best, that's why we engrave a subtle reminder to "Live your Dream". It's the details that matter, and we think it is the perfect finishing touch.
FREE CUSTOM HARD CASE WITH EVERY PAIR
We have worked really hard on making a high quality pair of glasses, but also a way to protect them. The William Painter hard case is custom built for The Empire. It fits snuggly and doesn't shake around when moving the case.
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!
