Marc Jacobs has been very strategic with sunglasses sub-licensing deal that went to Safilo, one of the world’s largest glasses manufacturing company. He decided to have two sunglasses lines Marc Jacobs – a premium line and Marc by Marc Jacobs. Both took off at their own pace. Marc by Marc sunglasses are mainly made in China, so is a lot of Marc Jacobs clothing. But sunglasses are very well made and are offered at a large variety of styles.

Gucci Glasses 2013 Collection

Gucci always has great styles for any taste when it comes down to glasses. Not only there are many plastic, geeky styles that are popular in the past few years, there are many metal frames. Making metal glasses frames is much harder and cost consuming than plastic. Admittedly, making a plastic frames all it takes is to manufacture a mold and keep stamping. Gucci, an elite brand hand assembles every frame and includes many nice accents onto the plastic frames. But metal frames need more work. After metal frame has been manufactured, often from a titanium or steel, it needs to be coated in color, glaze etc. It then needs to be assembled with screws and other parts, and just like plastic, a logo, rein stone or other detailed needs to be added. Don’t forget, metal frames also have rotating nose pieces. So, if you appreciate quality and value, you will appreciate Gucci metal glasses frames because they sell for about the same price as plastic.
