A Guy’s Look At Maui Jim

My husband and I are switching sides of the camera today!

Last summer I was given the opportunity to try out a few pairs of Maui Jim sunglasses and share the Maui Jim difference here on the blog, and it was (quite literally) love at first sight. I’ve been a huge fan of the brand ever since and I’ve been enjoying my Moonbow sunnies for well over a year now.

When the holidays rolled around and I wanted to get my husband a nice gift, I was stumped. I wanted to surprise him with something he wouldn’t buy for himself and may not even know he wanted or needed, but something he would really enjoy.

He had a few pairs of sunglasses laying around the house, but nothing with the quality and features Maui Jim has to offer. It didn’t occur to me to give him sunglasses as a gift until I was wandering the mall the week before Christmas and I spotted a rack of Maui Jim sunglasses for men in one of my favorite department stores. I knew immediately what I would get him for Christmas!

After debating several styles with the help of a sales associate (and some pictures of my husband from my iPhone) I chose the Stingray in Matte Black. They assured me they could be returned or exchanged if he didn’t like them or wanted a different style, but I was in luck and they fit him perfectly. He’s been wearing them daily ever since.

He loves how comfortable they are and how the wraparound style offers extra protection. While Maui Jim sunglasses are remarkably lightweight, they’re also incredibly durable. My husband is not precious with his sunglasses, and while they’ve been dropped and tossed in the car without a case, they’re still in excellent condition.

He regularly remarks about how clear his view is through the lenses with PolarizedPlus2® technology. They’re particularly helpful when driving because they make sun glare practically non-existent.

Other sunglasses dim the light and filter out the color, but with Maui Jim sunglasses, colors are enhanced making your view even more clear and vivid. We recently were in Maine on vacation where the views are already amazing, and Paul mentioned several times how much better everything looked through his Maui Jims.

One other thing to note — Maui Jim also offers prescription sunglasses for those who need them!

I’m thrilled that my husband likes his Maui Jims so much, and it doesn’t hurt that he looks great wearing them.

  1. Great job!! And the photos are stunning with that view-plus handsome hubby doesn’t hurt the eyes either…????????

  2. Maui Jims are the best. My boyfriend was the one that introduced me to them and between the two of us have like 10 pairs. Their customer service is also awesome if something does happen, he sat on a pair as he left them in his pocket when he got in the car. Great post and gives you a break too! Enjoy your vacation!

  3. Hands down Maui Jim sunglasses are the best! My husband & I both have been wearing Maui Jims for about 7 years now and we love them! In fact I need to update the pair I have because they are 7 years old but they still look brand new and I wear them almost everyday! My husband isn’t gentle with his sunnies either and they haven’t scratched or been broken!

  4. My hubby would love these! I’m definitely going to look around here for this brand. He has a bday coming up, and he happens to be the toughest person to buy for…but he always loves a good pair of sunglasses (I have gotten him gift cards for sunglasses multiple times, lol). Thanks for the idea!

  5. My husband has Maui Jims and loves them! Mine are Ralph Lauren with the polarized lens but maybe I should switch. Ha.

    You should do more posts like this where you switch roles with your hubby. He’s a good model. ;-).

    I hope the weather clears up more so you can enjoy the sunshine.

    Have a blessed day.

  6. They look like great sunglasses. I always have trouble with sun glasses because I do need a prescription, and I hate the thought of switching glasses all the time. They do look very nice on your hubby, though!

  7. I had never heard of Maui Jim’s before reading your blog posts. I tended to buy pricey designer brands that are decent quality, but just not as good as these! I bought my first pair of Maui Jim’s on your recommendations and I am very pleased. I love the polarized lenses, they are lightweight, comfortable, and worth every penny. They in fact weren’t pricier than other glasses I had purchased, but the lenses are definitely better!

  8. Great model and great photographer! I am going to compare the cost of Maui Jim prescription sunglasses with Zennioptical since I’d like more than one pair.

    I do hope there is more sun than clouds and rain for the remainder of your vacation.

  9. I got my first pair of Maui Jim’s in Dec and I LOVE them! I dropped them one day and they hit the garage floor and have a chip in the lens now which I’m super bummed about but I know I can send them in to get the lens replaced I just don’t want to part with them to have it done. My husband’s 50th birthday is coming up in August and I think these Stingray’s might be the perfect gift. Thanks for the sharing this post and your handsome hubs with us!
