Maui Jim Launches Manchester United Collection
Maui Jim, the world’s fastest growing premium sunglass brand, announced the launch of the official Manchester United Club Collection in collaboration with Manchester United. The collection will feature four styles and a new red mirror treatment inspired by one of the world’s most famous football clubs.
“We are thrilled to bring the spirit of two passionate brands together to create a collection to reflect the spirit of the Manchester United fans that also allows them to see the world with more color, clarity and detail,” says Jay Black, Maui Jim’s VP of Global Marketing. “Manchester United is a best-in-class club and our hope is that the new collection will give everyone the opportunity to wear the same styles with patented polarized technology that offer protection and style with amazing color enhancement. Whether you are enjoying the beaches of Lahaina or watching a match in Manchester, the view is better with Maui Jim.”
In February 2019, Maui Jim first announced their multi-year, global partnership with the world’s biggest football clubs. As their official vision partner, Maui Jim outfitted the Manchester United first team, women’s team and academy with sunglasses and ophthalmic eyeglasses. The new Maui Jim Club Collection will now give Man United fans worldwide access to the same premium, stylish sunglasses.
All Maui Jim lenses block 100 percent of harmful UV rays, protecting eyes from damage and long-term health risks. Additionally, they eliminate glare while enhancing color, definition and depth perception. Maui Jim sunglasses have earned the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation as an effective UV filter for the eyes and surrounding skin.
Club Collection Styles
These flat-front, modified aviator frames are the official sunglass uniform for Manchester United players and coaches. The club version of this popular style is now emblazoned with the Manchester United devil on the left temple tip, while an understated “MAN UTD” is placed on the left lens of the revolutionary Dual Mirror lenses. The Dual Mirror lens colors are available in two color choices; gold-to-silver applied to the HCL® Bronze base lens color, or black-to-silver applied to the Neutral Grey base lens color. Both of which are applied to the SuperThin (ST) Glass lenses that provide the absolute crispest optics available with the best scratch and solvent resistance.

Each frame also features the Man United devil on the right temple and the faint “MAN UTD” on the left lens. Traditional hinges lend support and stability.
