Among the most important accessories that a person can own are sunglasses.
A fresh pair of shades can be an extremely stylish accessory besides protecting your eyes from the blinding sun. Think about it. Sunglasses can tie together an entire ensemble. Or, they can make an otherwise boring getup suddenly seem like one of the sickest looks around.
Sure. There may be a ton of sunglasses out there. But not all brands are the same. You buy a cheap pair of shades from a vendor and not only do they offer little protection, they look cheap and don’t last because that’s what they are. Cheap piece of plastic.
On the flipside, just because you drop a couple hundred of bucks on a brand-name pair of glasses doesn’t mean that they’re worth the cash. Most of the time, you’re just paying for the name.
So, we’re going to save you some time and trouble if you’re on the search for some new sunglasses because there’s one brand where every item is a must-cop. The brand is called Dita, and you probably never even heard of it.
Dita launched in 1996 and was a passion project for lifelong friends Jeff Solorio and John Juniper. Today, Dita’s products are one of the hottest shades on the market. Besides being highly in-demand, Dita actually makes products that put the other eyewear brands to shame. Do you want to know what makes Dita so popular and the illest pair of shades in the world? Check out our five reasons below.
5. Celebs Already Know the Deal.
Not all celebs are fashion experts, some of them even look ridiculous, but when guys like Jamie Foxx, Diddy, User, T.I., and Ludacris rock your gear, you know you’re ahead of the game. Not only do these guys know style, they have the fashion resources that we don’t. They’ve been rocking Dita for years, and that’s a look that we all need to cop. But, it’s not just the men. Ladies like Beyonce, Halle Berry, and J. Lo have also been caught wearing Dita eyewear.
4. Dita’s Got the Looks.
Since Dita has been inspired by the vintage styles of the ’50s through the ’80s, their frames are not only a timeless look, they also fit your face the right way. The brand also offers frames in a number of styles, shapes, and colors. Whether you need a fresh pair of shades for skating, hitting the streets, or cruising around town, Dita has got you covered with eyewear that are sharp and always in.
3. Dita is One-of-a-Kind.
Unlike the other major eyewear manufacturers, Dita doesn’t sell out by having ad campaigns, sponsored wearers, or being sold at major retailers. Dita creates, and retails, all their products in-house. Talk about exclusive.
2. What? It’s Handmade? For Real.
If you didn’t know, nothing beats a handmade product. When something is handmade, you can be sure that it’s free of flaws and has received extra attention to details. Each and every pair of Dita glasses is handmade in Japan, so you can be certain that their products won’t let you down. Can you tell us any other brands that still crank out handmade products?.
1. Dita Uses Only the Best Materials in the World.
Dita manufactures their products using titanium, 18K gold, white gold, and Japanese zyl acetates. Japanese ‘Zyl’ Acetate, if you never heard of it, comes from plants and has become known for being one of the best materials in the world for eyewear because it offers a less ‘plasticky’ feeling and. Dita frames are cut from large blocks of this material, which gives the frames extra strength and uniformity. Finally, did we mention Dita’s signature ‘hex’ rivets? No? Well, these rivets create a stronger, more substantial and original look and feel to every pair of Dita frames.
Dita sunglasses don’t come cheap, but in reality, they’re not that much more than other major brands. And remember, you’re paying for a handmade and exclusive pair of frames made from only the best materials in the world. And, Dita sunglasses will last you a lifetime, so they’re well worth the extra dough.
