LAHAINA, Hawaii, July 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Maui Jim, makers of premium sunglasses known for their optical clarity and patented lens technologies, is proud to announce Jace Lipstein, founder and designer of men's lifestyle brand Grungy Gentleman, as the latest addition to its team of worldwide brand ambassadors. The announcement follows Maui Jim's sponsorship of Grungy Gentleman's past three runway shows, including the most recent on July 14, as part of the 2016 New York Men's Fashion Week.
Founded in 2010, Grungy Gentleman seamlessly combines fashion, sports and entertainment, promoting the expression of individuality to both high fashion and urban cultures. The masculine simplicity of Grungy Gentleman's designs accentuates boldness and athleticism, and the brand has found a fierce following among some of the top names in sports, music and entertainment. Grungy Gentleman was even chosen to style the first-ever NFL runway show at Super Bowl 50 in San Francisco, California.
"Eyewear is very specific because of fit and comfort. These two attributes are exactly what Maui Jim excels in. When I am rocking my Flat Island, it fits my face perfectly and I can wear them for hours without noticing they are sitting on my ears," said Jace Lipstein. "Their lens quality is superior to any other pair that I have ever worn. I am able to see the outside world in vivid color."
Founded in 1985 in Lahaina, Maui Jim is the fastest growing premium sunglass manufacturer in the world. Their clean, sophisticated frame designs and industry-leading optics require no compromise between style and performance, making Maui Jim a perfect match for the Grungy Gentleman brand.
"Maui Jim has been known for producing amazing lenses since the brand was founded in the '80s, but it has recently launched a variety of fashionable new designs using advanced frame materials. As a true lifestyle brand with over 125 styles, Maui Jim has many options that can work really well in the fashion world," said Craig LaManna, Director of Global Brand Activation at Maui Jim. "Jace has been fantastic to work with and we are happy that he is part of our Maui Jim 'Ohana (family)."
