With every pair sold, Made donates a pair to a global charity providing eye care to those in need.
At the company’s launch yesterday, we spotted one of our favorite men’s eyewear trends: the color mirrored shades. The rise to popularity came in 1985 when Oakley released their iridium-finish lenses and Serilium based frames in the coveted Frogskins. In 2009 Frogskins re-emerged in limited quantity, becoming instant collectors items fetching for $500. This season, once again mirrored sunglasses are finding their place in the sun.
