Arnette is an American sunglasses brand hailing from Orange County, California. This young and trendy brand was founded by Greg Arnette in 1992. From a humble beginning as a garage-brand, Arnette took only three years to grow into one of the most famous counterculture brands in America, with iconic models such as the Black Dog and the Raven.
In 1995, Arnette entered the world of professional sports, and started to gain a following among celebrities in the film and music industries. Five years later, the new millennium heralded the international breakthrough of the Arnette brand. Arnette is known for cooperative endeavours with artists such as Del the Funky Homosapien, Bad Brains, and Slayer. Arnette also supports young athletes with various sponsorship deals, and organises the Arnette Pro Junior competitions for young surfers.
Arnette uses a number of innovative materials and designs to craft the various sunglasses in their collections. Take, for example, the polycarbonate and APX Arnette lenses. These high-quality, shock-absorbing materials make these lenses the perfect protective gear for outdoor sports at professional levels. Arnette’s polarized lenses offer additional protection against glaring sunlight reflected by surfaces such as water, sand, metal, and asphalt.
Arnette’s Grilamid frames are ideal for outdoor sports. This material is light and ultra strong. Grilamid is capable of withstanding the most extreme weather conditions without losing its flexibility or shape.
Arnette: The D.O.T.
The D.O.T. system strategically redistributes pressure across the frame. Where cheaper sunglasses pinch the bridge of the nose and the side of your head after a full day’s use, Arnette’s frames feel light and comfortable all day long.
