The Maui Jim Origin Story
The Maui Jim brand was born in 1980 on a beach in Hawaii. A fisherman named Jim Richards, known as “Maui Jim”, started selling sunglasses on the beach in a place called Lahaina, a Hawaiin word for “cruel sun”. Richards saw a need to create sunglasses that are designed to combat the harsh glare of the island sun in addition to protecting against harmful UV rays. He wanted his customers to experience the island in full colour and under such bright conditions, vibrant colours go unnoticed.
The independently-owned company engineered the game-changing PolarizedPlus2® lens. This advanced lens technology was incorporated into their original Classic Collection which consisted of seven sunglass styles.
The small company eventually expanded its presence beyond the beaches of Hawaii. Now you can find Maui Jim sunglasses in Vancouver at select independent stores like ours, and all over the globe. In fact, the brand became the largest independently-owned sunglass company in the world.
The Revolutionary Lens
The success of the leading sunglass brand is thanks to the patented PolarizedPlus2® technology. The industry-leading lens technology changes the way you see the world. With every pair containing the PolarizedPlus2® lenses, it is clear that this company believes that colour and light are significant components of experiencing a beautiful life.
Besides enhancing your view, the advanced technology provides protection from 100% of UVA and UVB rays.
The lens comes in four different colours that correspond to the varying light conditions depending on your environment and activity. The Neutral Grey provides the highest amount of light reduction making this lens best for direct sunlight. The HCL Bronze offers a warm tint and is the most versatile, making it best for everyday use. The Maui Rose is designed for fast-action activities thanks to its ability to provide the highest contrast. The Maui Jim lens that is ideal for low light conditions is the Maui HT; it enhances contrast and colour where most other lenses would have a dimming effect.
