About

After launching our first range of high quality customisable sunglasses in 2014, we have been amazed at how receptive the market has been to our unique offering. The feedback has been fantastic, however, we were just getting started. We have worked hard on improving our product whilst maintaining our core focus to offer high-end custom sunglasses at affordable prices.

We're therefore excited to introduce our 2017 Range.

 

  

 
Key Features

Design Your Own... 

The heart of the S&F concept is allowing customers to design their own pair of high quality sunglasses. By purchasing a pair of S&F sunglasses you have the flexibility to choose from a selection of frames, temples (arms) and lenses.

In our new range we have extended the acetate offering to 5 stand-out colours and patterns. With 7 lens options now available, this allows for up to 175 unique combinations for customers to choose from.

 

 

New Polarised Mirrored Lenses

Our latest lenses have been carefully selected from hundreds of samples to provide both unique style and performance. The polarised and UV certified lenses offer beautiful clarity and tone and can be worn in all climates.

LOOK AT LIFE DIFFERENTLY

 

So, Lets Talk Acetate ....

Cellulose acetate is plant-based plastic (not from oil) that is better for the environment and gentler on the skin (hypoallergenic). This material was first used for eyewear in the late 1940’s to replace the brittle and cheap oil based plastics, and is renowned for its linen feel, strength, weight, and flexibility - giving a far superior product. 

Other sunglasses brands choose to cut corners with regards to quality, but in line with S&F values, we use 100% plant based acetates giving a superior quality and finish. Each S&F temple (arm) comes with a reinforcing stainless steel rod for added strength and structure.


Specifications

Our 2017 range is designed to be fully unisex, and the versatile shape we have chosen suits the majority of face shapes and ages. 

  

Risks and challenges

Risks to this project are minimal as we have now been shipping our original S&F sunglasses for over 2 years and so have done it all before!

However if any, below are the minor risks we have worked hard to minimise:

1) Sizing: All S&F Sunglasses are carefully designed to be fully unisex. We have many happy customers of all shapes, sizes and ages. However for further assurance please consult the dimensions in the specifications above.

2) Manufacturing: We are using the same manufacturer that completed our original stock. We have an excellent working relationship with them and so we don't anticipate any issues. However if anything crops up we know that they will work tirelessly to correct anything asap.

3) Delivery Delays: Over the past 12 months we have been through the process of obtaining bespoke tooling, several rounds of samples, thousands of material samples and much more to get the product as ready as possible. All that is needed is for the order to be placed. We also have an excellent relationship with our existing international logistics partner who are experienced in dealing with much greater quantities than required by us. Therefore we don't anticipate any delays at all on delivery.

We have now been shipping S&F sunglasses globally for over two years and we are highly confident in the ability of our team to deliver this next project.

We look forward to shipping your new 2017 S&F's soon!
