It was once true that high-quality sunglasses had to be Italian. It isn’t anymore, and it turns out a couple of California surf bums can make a pair of shades worthy of some European envy. Raen Optics sunglasses are designed in the Golden State and constructed with a sharp eye on detail and the finest materials available, including cellulose acetate of the highest grade and Carl Zeiss lenses. Raen sunglasses keep UV rays out with style, and right now you can grab a pair for 25 percent off.
