I’ve wanted a pair of RAEN sunglasses from the moment I learned about the brand. I saw their page on Instagram a couple of years ago, gave them a follow, and from that day on I’ve drooled over every RAEN photo that’s come through my feed. They’re beautiful, to say the least. I love the classic, simplistic style that every pair boasts. Luckily for me, I now have my hands on some, and they’re by far my favorite sunglasses I’ve ever owned.
Let’s talk about a few key features that make RAEN sunglasses stand out from the crowd…
They’re all handmade.
Yep… You read that right. Every pair is formed by hand and hand-finished to perfection. This makes the sunglasses incredibly high-end, something that the injection mold companies can’t compete with. You’ll notice the attention to detail from the moment you hold a pair in your hands and put them on your face. Each line, cut and embellishment are as precise and unique as they come, and even the screws have me geeking out… As soon as I received my pair of Remmy 52s, I immediately noticed how high-quality the hardware is. All RAEN glasses feature stainless steel, five-barrel hinges, so your sunglasses’ arms will be swinging smoothly ’til the end of time.
Have you ever heard of Carl Zeiss? Okay, well neither had I, so I did some research. Carl Zeiss was a German optical instrument-maker during the 19th century. The lenses he produced were so good that they were used for microscopes, and then when the camera was invented, his company, Carl Zeiss AG, started producing high-end camera lenses. Carl Zeiss AG now manufactures an impressive product line, ranging from precision binoculars to surgical microscopes to a whole slew of Sony camera lenses. And from this world-renowned company, RAEN gets their lenses for their sunglasses. So yeah, you could say they’re some of the best lenses out there. On top of all that, the lenses make my eyes feel oh-so-good. I’ve been wearing the Remmy 52 Polarized glasses, and they make a huge difference in terms of comfort and visibility. I spend a lot of time in the sun and on the water, and RAEN’s polarized lenses keep my own precious lenses comfortable, protected and unstrained.
Their classic, simplistic approach.
I’m all about simplicity when it comes to the clothing and accessories that I put on my body. I don’t do flashy logos, I don’t do outrageous color schemes, and neither does RAEN. Their timeless, sleek styles and colorways make them stand out without being showy, and that’s the reason I was initially so drawn to the brand. Take a look on their website, and you’ll find that every pair sports a classic and refined look. Don’t fret though… Their line is so diverse that you’ll find a perfect pair no matter your style. They even go as far as making several popular shapes in different sizes, so you’re set!
