About

Who We Are
 

The Parallel Eyewear team has been in the global eyewear design, manufacturing and distribution business for almost 25 years. We have an intimate knowledge of the industry and its inner workings.

That’s how we manage to build and sell ultra-high quality eyewear at such an incredible price.  

We’re also avid outdoor and sports enthusiasts. Our founder is a competitive amateur golfer and an avid fly fisherman. Our team includes weekend golfers, hunters, surfers, bike riders and folks who just love to be in the great outdoors.  

We’re located in southern California and blessed to be able to spend a lot of time at the beach, on the ocean and golf course, and in the deserts under a hot, bright sun.  

So, of course, we have a deep appreciation for the importance of well-made, performance eyewear.

How the Parallel Model Works

Experience, Expertise, Innovation and Passion.

We sourced the best creative designers, researched the most advanced, and greenest technologies, used only the newest state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and we’ve committed to an exclusively direct-to-consumer sales and customer service business model.

That’s how we manufacture and sell the highest performance sunglasses at a truly revolutionary price.

You simply won’t find the technology, clarity, superior design elements, and build quality in any comparably priced sunglasses. Period.

We can’t be passionate outdoor enthusiasts if we don’t have an outdoors, so everyone at Parallel is committed to doing what we can to protect the natural world. That’s why we donate a portion of the sales proceeds of each pair of sunglasses to organizations working to assure there will always be an outdoors.
