Our Story

We want to make the best sunglasses ever.  

 

That's it. The best ever. We're not cutting corners. We're not sacrificing style for comfort. We're going for it, and we have been for quite a while.  We're for waiting long mornings in the duck blind, we're for staring at that bobber. We're for drinking cold beer on the back porch with your neighbors. We're for jogging on the beach at 6am and we're for sunset volleyball, trash talk and all. Built for both the avid outdoorsman and the city slick'n bartender. Italian frames crafted with rugged use in mind, as well as aesthetic pleasure and daily comfort. We don't think you should have to settle for anything less than the best, so we don't either. The best ever.

WHY?

We got tired of watching people do it wrong, so we're doing it right. Over the past decade, we've been putting our money where our mouth is.  By investing extensively into research and development and using the knowledge we've gained through years in the eyewear industry, we're trying to make this the best sunglasses manufacturer from top to bottom. Lens-resistence to reliable delivery, we've been working to make sure your experience with us is nothing less than exceptional.  Now we're ready to show the world what we've been working on! 

FRAMES

No one cares how well the lenses work if the frames are fragile or worse, make you look like a clown.  So, we knew we needed something strong, durable but fashionable and current. We started looking. We looked, and looked... ordered prototypes and looked even more until finally, our search brought us to a third-generation family-run eyewear manufacturing facility based in a small town in Northern, Italy. Family to family, we thought it was a great fit, made an exclusive partnership and couldn't be happier with our decision. It is at this factory, a team of designers and craftspeople utilize state-of-the-art technology and advanced polymers to construct our premium, high-performance frames from scratch.    

LENSES

With an exceedingly high dedication to style, comfort, and quality in our frames, it should come as no surprise that we also pair our sunglasses with the best lenses on earth. This search was a little easier because in lenswear, everyone knows who the best is, Carl Zeiss. Therefore, Blue Otter Polarized Sunglasses are equipped with lenses manufactured by Carl Zeiss Vision™ polarized lenses.  These lenses feature industry-leading scratch resistance and advanced anti-reflective properties derived from their breakthrough poly-carbonate composite construction. These premier polarized lenses offer Blue Otter Polarized sunglasses superior durability and optical performance across the visible light spectrum to improve vision while simultaneously eliminating irritating glare. 

PROMISE

Being the best means being the best from top to bottom. We take the same intentional approach with customer service that we do with designing our next line of eyewear. We started with an aim to provide high quality eyewear but with that, we also aim to provide the best possible experience for our customers. Tell us how we can be better. We listen.
