Optical quality sunglasses.
Tres Noir has taken the same quality you find in an optical glass and adapted it to sunglasses. Eyeglasses are made to be worn everyday and withstand the daily wear and tear while still looking great. Your sunglass quality should be no different. Which is why Tres Noir uses the same materials as most eyewear glasses - handmade acetate, monel, and European CR39 lenses.
All plastic frames are hand made in limited quantities of acetate.
Unlike most sunglasses, Tres Noir doesn't use a mold for any sunglasses. All sunglasses are made by hand from acetate sheets. This allows them to use unique colors and gives the frames a heavier feel.
Metal Frames are made from 100% hypo-allergenic monel.
Monel is high quality metal, that does not rust or chip. It is hypo-allergenic and can be adjusted for the perfect fit.
Lenses are made of shatterproof European CR39 plastic and provide 100% UVA and UVB protection.
All lenses are made in Italy and provide 100% UVA and UVB protection. They are shatterproof and come with scratch resistant coating.
Most frames are Rx-Able.
Many frames in the collection can be taken to an optician and have a customers prescription inserted.
