A question we often hear at FramesDirect.com is “Where are Oakleys made?”
Before 2007, an identifying mark of genuine Oakleys was a “Made in USA” stamp etched on the inside of the temple. But when Oakley was acquired by Luxottica, some styles started being manufactured in other facilities around the world.
Oakley still strongly identifies as an American brand since their products are designed and engineered in California at their headquarters in Foothill Ranch, California (which is famous for its architecture.) But now many (genuine) Oakley products are manufactured in China.

Glamour, Elegance, Sensuality, Celebrity: all these words may come to mind when we think of the over-the-top pizzazz of Versace sunglasses.

Purples. lilacs, mauves, plums, call them what you like, but VIOLET VERSACE just sounds right! Some of the new passionately purple styles are only available with prescription lenses. So now, with spring approaching, is a great time to get yourself set up with custom sunglasses fitted with your Rx. Then you’ll see as fabulously as you look!
Wooden sunglasses and glasses frames accents can no longer be considered a trend when they stick around this long (get it?) And like a tree that takes a lifetime time to grow to full height, these natural beauties are made to last. Taking advantage of the textures and colors wrought by Mother Nature herself, there is no better way to marry the sleek and fashionable with the earthy and organic.
Don’t be embarrassed, a lot of people do it – it’s totally normal. Well, totally normal for people like us who are obsessed with fashion, accessories, and eyewear. Of course, we can all wear sunnies regardless of whether our vision is 20/20, and sunglasses are always fun. BUT – the transformative quality of optical glasses (they can make you look smarter, more sophisticated, more serious, – or more serious about looking cute) is on another level.
With a blizzard blowing in around the country it’s hard to wrap our heads around the thought of spring. But that’s exactly what we did just a few weeks ago. Although the weather was brisk we were lucky enough to shoot on a sunny day in Austin. Once again, we wanted to give our FramesDirect.com readers the exclusive behind the scenes seat.
Polarized sunglasses are desirable (and slightly more expensive,) because most people know they can greatly improve your vision in bright sunlight. Polarization, when referring to optics, is more than a buzzword or a marketing term. There is science behind why your eyes feel more comfortable, and you see more clearly, when wearing polarized sunglasses. But what does polarized mean?
