Early vintage Maui Jim MJ-167 Meridian blue tortoise shell mirrored sunglasses are definitely not your modern Maui Jims - and we think a whole lot better! It combines striking blue tortoise ear stems with lots of different colors interspersed for a great look with moderately reflective Maui Jim mineral glass lenses. These Maui Jim MJ 167 sunglasses were one of the earliest styles produced, much more like vintage Revos than today's lightweight Maui Jims. The front frame is muted blue with fine and precise etching, and from there it transitions to the blue tortoise ear stems that are so unique in the MJ 167. The moderately reflective mirrored lenses have a subtle silver-brown color that is understated yet perfect when you consider the etched blue and blue tortoise that surrounds them. Each lens measures approximately 1.875" in diameter although not perfectly round, and the right lens is laser etched Maui Jim. Spring loaded hinges add to the fact that no quality detail was spared in the design, and the inside of one ear stem is marked Maui MJ-167 Made in Japan while the inside of the other stem is marked with the US patent number. The Revo influences are so obvious in this design and so different from the lightweight Maui Jim sunglasses being made today.
