Paradise Meets City Life with Maui Jim

What does one think of when they hear the name Maui Jim?

Well, the islands of Hawaii come to mind. A flock of birds of paradise. The shimmering sea against the clear, blue sky. Endless stalks of palm trees lightly swaying to the ocean breeze. And perhaps, a not-so-distant memory of your dad wearing a pair too. Needless to say, the Maui Jim brand has plenty of cultural iconicity and credibility. Its sartorial roots run deep. 

And I am proud to announce that it has finally found its way into my wardrobe as the ultimate eyewear accessory.

Accessorizing with Maui Jim, I discovered, is a way of life that goes beyond images of tropical islands and gregarious parrots. It’s about bringing the island mentality into city life.

Accessorizing with Maui Jim, I discovered, is a way of life that goes beyond images of tropical islands and gregarious parrots. It's about bringing the island mentality into city life. It's about finding those moments of joy and relaxation as you go about your own day-to-day routine. I task myself to do this in between meetings and leisurely strolls around my favorite parts of Downtown LA and surrounding areas, namely Chinatown, where I am often for important power lunch meetings, coffee or tea sessions and just a good old jaunt through its breathtaking architecture. I love how I can submerge my consciousness into its vast but distinct skyscrapers that stand tall amongst taco stands and bustling bars/restaurants. Putting my Maui Jim sunglasses on enhances that enjoyment so much more, given Its PolarizedPlus2 and Lens technology and UV-protected lenses allow me to do so without a squint. A visual meditation of sorts as you experience and envision life as it happens. 

The best kinds of accessories are ones that add an element of surprise and function to our everyday lives. Maui Jim sunglasses offer an endless variety of eyewear options that suit all types of faces, occasions and weather situations, so there’s something for everyone. Especially if you’re looking to jumpstart your Father’s Day shopping this year. Now that the secret’s out of the bag, I’ll go back to chasing more island vibes through these city eyes.
