Love the lightness

Really warmed up to these glasses. They are not your typical aviators. The lightness of the frame made it like you were hardly wearing anything and I really liked the view out of them. The brightness of the gold titanium is unusual and I like having something unique.

They are stylish, comfortable and practical.

Thanks for making such an enjoyable product!

They Feel So Good

I have never spent more than $50 on a pair of sunglasses because I know that I'm hard on sunglasses so I've never wanted to spend a whole bunch of money on something that will be broken or scratched within months of the purchase. So before purchasing these sunglasses, I did a bit of research. I read what the company said about their sunglasses; I read what other clients said about their sunglasses. And I made the leap. I purchased The Hughes and waited anxiously for them to arrive. Then the day came that they were delivered and when I opened the box, I immediately noticed how beautiful and sleek the packaging is. I'm a sucker for good marketing. The when I got them out of the box and tried them on, I could immediately feel what other clients were talking about. They feel so sturdy! I can shake my head left and right and look up and down really fast, and they're not going anywhere. And the fit is PERFECT!!! I understand why everyone loves these so much, I plan on buying more sunglasses from William Painter in the future. I certainly can't go back to the cheap ones that break all the time after wearing these.

28% hotter

I like them. I like them alot. Feel like I need to tweak the arm to fit my mug properly but they're very lovely and I'm sure I got at least one chick double-look. Don't be surprised how light they are, I'd gotten used to weighty glasses.

Stylin, Sassy, and great quality!

These are beautiful shades with awesome dark lenses that really protect my eyes. Phenomenal quality and comfort, and I can’t wait to expand my collection to have a pair for every style. So light and comfortable I forget I’m even wearing them!

  • CLASSIC AVIATOR STYLE MADE WITH AEROSPACE GRADE TITANIUM: You already know that aviators look good on you. But realize that these are the highest quality, longest lasting, most durable pair of polarized aviators ever made, which got us featured in Maxim, US Weekly & more. Titanium is the strongest metal for its weight, which allows you to use your sunglasses actively without worrying about them breaking.
  • WORLD'S LIGHTEST NYLON POLARIZED LENSES - SCRATCH RESISTANT AND 100% UVA/UVB RAY PROTECTION: At less than half the weight of traditional polarized glass lenses, you can reduce eyestrain, ban your eyes from blinding glare, which makes driving safer, etc.. Oh and you also get a wipe clean cloth and a custom fit hard case that protects your shades.
  • KICK STARTER CAMPAIGN RAISED MORE THAN $200K: We received such an overwhelming response from the world, we had to bring them to our site. Disclaimer: These are authentic William Painter sunglasses, designed by a small independent team in California. These are not Ray-Bans, Oakley, Maui Jim, Arnette or any other Luxottica brand. Available in 2 colors - Golden & Matte Black.
  • INCREDIBLE VALUE FOR LIFELONG DURABILITY: There should be bans placed on major brand name sunglasses selling for ten times what it costs to make, which is due to the hefty markup costs of selling to retail stores. We don't have to charge $300+ because our vertically integrated ecommerce model bypasses the cost of retail store markup as we sell directly to consumers online, which allows us to deliver the world's highest quality glasses to our customer for the best price possible. Period.
