However there are many brands out there offering custom sunglasses, what makes S&F different? Quite simply S&F focus on the quality aspect of our product whilst keeping the price affordable. Almost ever custom sunglasses brand out there offer injection moulded frames, which are the cheapest and tackiest forms of production. At S&F we only use the highest quality acetates which are shaped by hand, not machine. Further to this our temples (arms) are strengthened with a stainless steel arm running from the hinge to the tip. This makes your personalized sunglasses more robust meaning they last for years not weeks.

We paid a huge amount of attention to the acetate options that we now offer. S&F looked for a good mix of understated colours such as Matte Black and louder options such as our S&F speckled Tortoise Shell acetate. This means that you can still design an eye catching pair of personalized sunglasses whilst avoiding the bright reds, yellows and greens offered by the budget brands.

So why not design your own sunglasses today by visiting our shop page. You can even give the gift of design by purchasing a gift card to your desired value through the shop page. Staple & Ford ship worldwide, you can also review our returns policy here.

This supply chain removes middle men who tend to take healthy margins, such as a retail outlet or online retailer. This means that you can only by S&F quality custom sunglasses exclusively through our website; www.stapleandford.com.

Aside from value for money, S&F also allow a customer the ability to design your own sunglasses. Staple & Ford fuses classic design with contemporary style to allow an individual to create a unique pair of custom sunglasses.

Quality of Lens

S&F spent a significant amount of time sampling hundreds of lenses to come up with the best three lens options for your custom sunglasses for skiing. The first priority was UV protection, therefore all of our lenses are 100% UV certified. For us the next feature was to make looking through the lenses in your personalized sunglasses an experience in itself. Each lens truly improves any view by adding a beautiful filter to your day on the slopes.

Azure: Blue lens that makes even grey days look beautifully blue and bright, whilst still filtering out the intense sunlight.

Sepia: A subtle traditional brown lens with a breath taking filter that is hard to describe without experiencing it for yourself.

Smoke: A dark black lens with a hint of red that is perfect for more intense sun conditions. This lens looks particularly good in our matte black frame.

Quality of material

More common sunglasses brands such as Ray Ban, Oakley, etc. make their frames using molded plastics. This is the cheapest form of manufacturing sunglasses and the result is a cheap look and feel. Staple & Ford only use the highest grade hand molded acetates to give a quality finish to every pair of custom sunglasses. The acetate is reinforced with stainless steel to add strength. When designing your S&F custom sunglasses you are given 3 frame acetate options; Classic Tortoise Shell, Matte Black and Speckled Tortoise Shell. Regarding temple options you can produce your own personalized sunglasses using 4 different acetate options; the three mentioned above plus a translucent option for a set of truly personalized sunglasses.
