Vintage Maui Jim MJ-159 Regatta sunglasses c 1980s feature a black wrap design with incredible mirrored lenses that employ a blue blocker rear coating reminiscent of what you will see in vintage Vuarnet Skilynx sunglasses. The wrap design gives you additional eye protection from the sides, and the durable black frame is designed for active outdoor pursuits. On the beaches of Maui in 1986, the fledgling Maui Jim company developed their Polarized Plus optics as in these MJ-159 sunglasses, unprecedented technology that eliminated glare without compromising the island's vibrant colors. The MJ-159 Maui Jim sunglasses launched the firm's classic collection, and in our opinion they're so much better than the thin wire designs the company produces today. The highly reflective mirrored lenses have a dramatic curve to confirm to the wrap design frame, and the right lens is marked with the Maui Jim logo in script laser etched into the mirrored finish. The inside of one ear stem is marked with the U.S. patent number and CE, while the inside of the other stem is marked Maui MJ-159-02M Made in Japan. It's a nice unisex frame that measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple with lenses that measure approximately 2.25" x 1.675" at the widest points.
