The Chaplin sunglasses have a timeless and stylish shape. The clean round lines and yellow tortoise shell provide a unique style that is perfect for guys and girls wanting a classic look. Part of Proof Eyewear's "Eco-Collection", each pair is crafted from plant based acetate materials and the finest sustainably sourced woods available, making them 100% renewable, biodegradable and hypoallergenic. Each pair of sunglasses goes through a 15 step assembly process to create this one of a kind frame. The lenses are CR39 polarised lenses, which are 100% UVA/UVB protective. Polarised lenses block the sun's glare and provide higher visibility and a clearer view. Extreme attention to detail is placed in each pair of sunglasses Proof makes. The sunglasses all have laser engraved logos and a quote on the inside arm, they also come with their very own custom wood case and microfiber pouch to protect the sunglasses and keep the polarised lenses clean.
