Perfect “Indian Summer” Shades From Maui Jim

With summer time coming to an end it is never too late to pick up a new pair of sunglasses. After all the British weather can be unpredictable on best of times, right? A pair of Maui Jim’s are not just for summer, their for all year round use – and if your not too careless the quality of the brand will speak for itself, giving you years of use and a look that will surely leave others quaking with jealousy.


Maui Jim sunglasses are inspired by the beauty and culture of Maui. Starting off in 1980 as a small company selling sunglasses on the beach of Lahaina, Hawaii, Maui Jim envisioned the need for technology that could combat intense glare and harmful UV while bringing the brilliant colours of the island to life. We here believe they have done just that!

We were lucky enough to get our hands on a pair of gloss black Howzit sunglasses and they didn’t fail to impress!

A common Hawaiian slang for “how are you?” After popular demand, Howzit brings all of the unique qualities of Eh Brah with a trendsetting silhouette sized for medium or larger size faces. Howzit features a lightweight acetate frame with double injected metal and rubber temples.


With a neutral grey lens this pair of Maui Jim uses the best of lens technology with SuperThin glass that provides the crispest optics available. Also not forgetting PolarizedPlus2 that wipes out 99.9% of glare, 100% harmful UV and boosts colour. With a refined rectangular shape that best compliments round, oval or heart face shapes, the black gloss Maui Jim has a thin and lightweight acetate frame with double injected metal and rubber temples. For £245 you are certainly getting your money’s worth if not more. The quality and build of this pair of sunglasses is superior in comparison to other high named brands. (includes a zipped case with a Hawaiian themed pull string glasses bag)

If the Howzit sunglasses don’t compliment your style, don’t panic! There are a number of incredible alternatives to choose from. Perhaps you might prefer a pair of snazzy silver framed Mavericks with blue Hawaii lens! (below)

Inspired by open-minded, free spirited adventurers ready to go where others aren’t willing to follow. This modern aviator brings classic style with a contemporary twist, featuring PolarizedPlus2® lens technology and MauiGradient lenses.

Developed as a fashionable option for top-selling styles, Blue Hawaii provides a stylish new look that offers the same amazing color enhancement and clarity as all other Maui Jim lenses.
