Are Maui Jims Better than Ray-Bans?

As an independent retailer and owner of many sunglass specialty retail stores, I would like to shed some light on this topic. We are, we breathe, we know sunglasses, and in this blog you will get the honest truth.

Since we opened our first store in 1987, we have been outfitting customers with the best sunglasses the industry has to offer. We have put thousands of great frames on thousands of great people’s faces. Some of our great frames have led to marriages and some to divorces! Some to incredible jobs and some to incredible blogs!

We are not manufacturers or dealers, we are not paid for this blog, we are not affiliated with any brand, we are just an incredible retailer with intense sunglass knowledge. We are the real McCoy! The honest truth! God himself says so!

So, are Maui Jims better than Ray-Bans?

They aren’t.

At our stores we sell both and have for over 30 years. Ray-Ban does outsell Maui Jim, hands down, no questions asked. Ray-Ban is an iconic and widely popular international brand that boasts an impressive collection of classic, eclectic, and modern frames. Not all face shapes work with all styles of sunglasses, but Ray-Ban’s iconic Aviators and Wayfarers seem to do the trick for all faces.

Ray Ban just released the coolest replica sunglasses of 2017


The Wayfarer is one of the most iconic replica sunglasses shapes out there, strong enough to support a million variations on the original.

6 High-End Replica Sunglasses Worth the Splurge


Seventy percent of the world’s sunglasses are made by the same company—a brand called Luxottica that is responsible for shades from Ray Ban, LenCrafters, Marc Jacobs, Oliver Peoples, Tiffany, Persol, DKNY, Oakley and others. So, splurging on a pair of sunnies is complicated. Why spend hundreds of dollars for a pair of replica sunglasses that the same exact company also makes and sells for under $10?

The key to purchasing a valuable pair is finding unique, high-quality shades from a brand you want to invest in. The following replica sunglasses are classic, historic, or artistic in a way no other brand could replicate, and they have high-quality features that Oakley Sunglasses For Men justify the price. Plus, many of these brands fall in the 30 percent that isn’t owned by that sunglass monopoly.

1. Karen Walker Super Duper Strength Sunglasses, $28


For a timeless yet still on-trend look, invest in these round sunglasses by Karen Walker. With strong glare reduction and UV protection, you’ll be happy to have them on super sunny days. And, if “Super Duper Strength” means they won’t break when you sit on them, well, that’s just an added bonus.

2. Etnia Barcelona Basquiat 01, $35


If you’re interested in showcasing a real piece of art on your face, you can do that with Etnia Barcelona’s Jeal-Michiel Basquiat collection inspired by the graffiti artist and painter. We’re big fans of the 01 In This Case, which feature red and blue designs on the stems. The brand also frequently partners with charitable global organizations, making it even more of a company worth investing in.

3. Oliver Goldsmith Grace, $40


Actresses like Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly basically invented the chic shaded look, and you can channel it with the Grace sunnies by Oliver Goldsmith. Founded in 1926, London’s Oliver Goldsmith became a household name in the 1950s, thanks to customers like Kelly, Hepburn and, much later, Princess Diana. The company now has a line using archival frames, which includes the Grace. We’re not sure how replica sunglasses could get more valuable.

4. Ray-Ban Aviator Carbon Fibre, $24


As time has proven, aviators will never go out of style, and either will Ray-Ban, which is why you should invest in a pair of their classic aviators. The sturdy shades will last a lifetime—in both style and quality. Splurge on the Carbon Fibre aviators, which are polarized, lightweight and resilient.

5. Prada Blue Gradient Cat Eye, $35


You can’t get more classic when it comes to sunnies than Prada. If you’re looking for a trusted brand with a dash of style, opt for these angular cateyes with 100 percent UV protection. Every girl should have a pair of colored lenses in her collection, and these light blue ones fit the bill.

6. Oakley Mainlink Prizm deep/shallow water sunglasses, $15


Go to a store and try both out before you buy, and compare to other glasses. A lot of guys here will tell you Costa, but I own versions of both and prefer Oakleys… Once you try them on and have your preference, buy the glasses from Ebay, there are reputable sellers that sell for 25-50% off from what the Mall stores or BPS sells them for. Just pay attention to feedback scores.

As for your particular conditions, I would say it sounds like the Oakly Prizm Deep Water Blue would be of most benefit to you. But whichever color you go, I would go Oakley Outlet over Costa. Oakley has a better variety of Cheap Oakley Sunglasses styles (though this is subjective). Also my Oakley’s stay on my head a lot easier, my Costas slip. The Oakley’s are lighter generally, my Costas weigh down on the bridge of my nose after just an hour drive. Also, if you buy the Oakley Shallow Prizms and find you need the Deep Blue, you can buy just the other lenses and pop them in/out with ease on many Oakley Models (Half Jackets or Flak Jackets).

I viewed the Oakley Prizm Shallow and Deep this spring SideXside with Costa Blue Mirror and Green Mirror polarized (both were the 580Glass). The Costa Blue and the cheap Oakley Prizm Blue were no different to my eyes whatsoever. The Costa Green and the replica Oakley Shallow were similar, with the Costas having a bit more amber and more of a color contrast which wound up being kind of irritating to my eyes after a few minutes.

Rather than just pulling out old stock, Oakley relied on the same Eyeshade design but updated it to the standards that has made it a household name in eye protection. To begin with, the lenses received Oakley’s proprietary HDO (High Definition Optics). These Michael Kors Outlet optics provide three things. First, you see images clearer and sharper without any image distortion. Second, regardless of the curvature of the lens, images appear where they actually are, instead of being shifted. Finally, HDO lenses are impact resistant and filter 100 percent of the sun’s UV rays. The frames themselves were constructed from high-impact O Matter, so you won’t have to worry about them shattering when or if you happen to take a tumble.
