The Tao



The Tao sunglasses. These sunnies are our mens favourite and without really knowing it, you already knew it. They have a really cool design that just demands your attention. It’s like when you see a really hot girl walk past in the street and you know you shouldn’t look twice but you can’t control it! Something inside you just says, wow, I have to see this!
Well, The Tao is the really hot person, and you are the guy walking down the street with your jaw on the floor!

The style of these sunnies will suit any bloke for any occasion. They are designed in such an awesome way that they can be your casual sunnies and your going out sunnies in one.
Worn with board shorts and a singlet heading out to a mates place for beers or down the beach in summer. Or they could be your driving pair that you leave in your car so they never get scratched. They can even be your work pair! And let me tell you, if these are your work pair you will get compliments from the boys that they are cool without looking like you a trying too hard.
These sunnies also work for a more dressy occasion. Maybe you’re going out to a rooftop bar and you’ve got a nice pair of jeans and a shirt. Maybe you're going to a beer garden with the boys on a Sunday afternoon. These sunnies literally work for everything.
That’s why they’re perfect! And we know these are important factors which is why we don’t mark up our sunglasses like the big brands do. So if you lose them or scratch them or break them it’s not the end of the world! No more diving back into your savings for a new pair. You will easily be able to afford to replace them.
The frames are made from very lightweight but also very strong polycarbonate plastic which means they will last all the days at work plus the big weekend sesh! And the lenses are UV 400 A/B protected providing you with the best protection from the sun.
These sunglasses come in three different colors so maybe you could buy one of each and they can be worn for each one of the occasions I’ve mentioned!

- Lens Height: 50mm  
- Lens Width: 54mm
- Total Width: 149mm

Please be mindful that when making a purchase online the items may look slightly different on you than expected.  We provide the most accurate product images and descriptions possible which include all necessary sizes of the sunglasses so you can best gauge how they will look on your face.

As stockists, we work directly with manufacturers, wholesalers and suppliers from all around the world - including Australia, America & China - and ship all of our products direct from each supplier in order to keep our prices down.

Some of these suppliers ship through, or use Central & East Asian postal services.

From the 5th - 12th of February, China will celebrate New Years - and as a result all orders made during or either one week preceding or one week following the holiday will have a minimum 2 WEEK extension on expected processing and shipping times as listed below.

We understand that this is a long time to wait, so if this is not ok with you, please wait to make your order!

Please note during high volume sale periods or new range releases there may be minor delays – we appreciate your patience during this time!
