October 2016: A perfect combination of classical charm and new age comfort, polarized sunglass maker Maui Jim’s latest offering Upcountry is a vintage aviator that effortlessly blends the classical with the modern.
One of the oldest yet most popular sunglass styles, the simply elegant aviator always finds a willing audience. All the more so, when the classical style is fused with elements of the modern. Upcountry serves the purpose perfectly.
This vintage aviator is crafted with Super Thin Glass lenses surrounded by a rounded silhouette of monel metal and nickel silver with acetate temples, and is a perfect blend of classic style and superior optics.
The sunglass with unisex appeal has a smoother rounded shape fit for those with smaller facial features and complements oval or oblong faces. It has a saddle-style fixed bridge with adjustable nose pads.
Upcountry exudes old school confidence and is an ideal choice for sunglass lovers who have an inclination towards vintage styles and shapes.
“Aviator is a sunglass style whose charm refuses to fade. No matter which century we are in, an aviator is always a highly loved style. It is particularly loved by people who want their sunglasses to be without any frills yet elegant in their appearance. With Upcountry we have revisited the aviator once again while adding a contemporary touch to it. It is available in the traditional black hue as well as more attractive bronze and rose colors. You can pick one accoding to your style and tase,” says Mr. I Rahumathullah, Managing Director, Maui Jim India.
The SuperThin Glass is 20% thinner and lighter than standard glass, and offers the best scratch and solvent resistance while providing the absolute crispest optics available.
All the more, every pair of Maui Jims is equipped with the patented, color-infused lens technology that wipes out 99.9% of glare, 100% harmful UV and boosts color via specially designed lens treatments. So your view is clearer, with crisper contrast and amazing brilliance.
Upcountry is available in three color options with a matte and high-gloss finish:
Satin Dark Gunmetal Frame with Maui Rose® lens with a subtle rose tone that is the most comfortable on the eyes.
Matte Chocolate Frame with HCL® Bronze lens which has a warm tint and is versatile in changing conditions
Matte Black Frame with Neutral Grey lens which offers the highest light reduction for rich color and contrast
Maui Jim sunglasses have been recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as an effective UV filter for the eyes and surrounding skin.
Proper UV protection is critical, as ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun plays a significant role in the development of skin cancer. About 86 percent of melanomas and 90 percent of non-melanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to the sun’s UV rays.
