No, any costs incurred when sending back the sunglasses are the responsibility of the customer.

Unfortunately, we do not have a filter that allows to sort by size of frame. However, all styles have dimensions listed under the description.
Q: Do you keep records of previous orders?
We do keep records of previous orders, those records on the website via your account.
Q: Do you have any discounts for first-time buyers?
We do not have discounts for first-time buyers; everyone gets the same low price and free shipping offer presented.
Q: Why won't my order go through?
There are a few different reasons that a credit card may be declined (sometimes our system can tell us what exactly it was, and sometimes it just tells us it was declined). Some of the reasons for a declined card is: insufficient funds, wrong expiration date entered, wrong security code entered, the wrong billing address was provided.
Q: Do you have any pictures of the products on actual people?
We do not have pictures of actual people in the sunglasses, but many of our products have an example photo on a mannequin head, which helps with perspective.
Q: The style I want is out of stock. Is it gone forever, or will it be restocked? When?
We try to restock inventory as often as possible, but sometimes, a product is discontinued by a manufacturer, and it is completely out of our hands. Please contact customer service to inquire about a specific style.
Q: I need a different size of a particular style. Can you customize it for me?
Because we are not the manufacturers of the sunglasses, we are unable to customize the frames in any way.
Q: Do you do any price-matching?
We do not do price-matching, because it would be impossible to determine that a style listed elsewhere is the exact style we carry. Many styles look identical but can be made by a different manufacturer and is thus a different price.
Q: I see a picture of a different color of a certain style below the big picture, but I can only select one color. Can I order the other color?
The available colors are listed in the drop-down menu. If a certain color does not show up in the drop-down menu, it is out of stock and unavailable for order.
Q: Why will it not allow me to order the amount of this style I want? It keeps adding a lower quantity than I enter to the cart.
The system will only allow the amount we have in stock to be added to the cart. If you want to order three of a style, but we only have one pair in stock, only one will be added to your cart. This way, you do not pay for what we cannot ship you.
Q: Can I pay with PayPal?
You are more than welcome to pay via PayPal Please select PayPal options in the cart page or at the bottom of the checkout page.
Q: Do you allow CODs (Collect on Delivery)?

Same-day shipping means the order will leave our warehouse if you order before 11AM PST on a business day; it does not mean same-day delivery.
Q: How long does it take for the order to ship?
If you order before 11AM PST on a business day, the order will ship that day, otherwise, it will ship the next business day.
Q: My confirmation number says the package was delivered, but I don't have it. Now what?
A few steps should be taken first. Check with anyone in the house/apartment that may have received the package. If it is an apartment complex, check with the front desk. Check with neighbors to see if the package was misdelivered. You can also contact your local post office and speak with your mail carrier or delivery manager about where the package was left.
Q: I got my shipping confirmation email, but the tracking number doesn't work. Was the order even sent?
Tracking information is not available right away. It often takes a business day for USPS to update the tracking. Please check the tracking number again tomorrow.
Q: Why does the tracking information state there is no record of the item?
Tracking information is not available right away. It often takes a business day for USPS to update the tracking. Please check the tracking number again tomorrow.

Unfortunately, no. Orders shipped internationally, even to Canada, do not qualify for free shipping.
Q: Can I have the order sent somewhere other than my billing address?
Yes, you are welcome to ship the order to a different address than your billing address. During checkout, enter your billing address first, at the top of the page, select to ship it to a different address, then enter the full shipping address second.
Q: Can I have half the order sent one place, and the other half sent another?
No, we are unable to ship one order to different locations. If different destinations are required, separate orders must be made, and shipping must be paid for each, unless the orders are over the shipping threshold on their own.
Q: USPS said my order would be here yesterday, but they did not arrive. Will you refund my shipping?
USPS has been offering an expected delivery date on their tracking information for USPS First Class Mail. This is NOT a guaranteed delivery date, so the package is still on its way.
Q: Is there a list anywhere of countries to which you ship?
To see the countries to which we ship, please proceed to the checkout page, and click on the Country drop-down menu.
Q: My order is over $25 with tax. Do I get free shipping?
Orders with over $25 of merchandise qualify for free shipping, so if tax bumps it over $25, free shipping will not be applied.
Q: Why is express/overnight shipping so expensive?
The shipping is calculated by the weight of the package and where it is being shipped. We do not charge extra shipping, so the cost you are seeing comes directly from the shipping company. Also, many overnight/express shipping has to get on an airplane to arrive in time, so this increases the cost a lot.

Copper is effective in filtering scattered blue light, improving contrast and provides true color definition than amber. It delivers brightness field of vision and is applicable for skiing, fishing, and all flat light conditions.
Yellow: A long time standard in ski and shooting sports Yellow provides excellent depth perception and contrast in low light. Improves contrast and gives a sensation of heightened visual acuity.
Orange: Provides greater contrast than yellow and it optimal for overcast conditions, an extremely efficient haze-cutter that provides maximum contrast where low light conditions exist.

All of our glasses provide UV400 protection, which is 99-100% coverage from UVA and UVB rays.
Q: What are polarized sunglasses?
Polarized lenses help reduce glare (this can be helpful for water sports, driving, etc). Light reflected from surfaces like a flat road or smooth water is generally horizontally polarized. That is, the reflected light is usually vibrating more in one direction than in others. This horizontally polarized light is blocked by the vertically oriented polarizers in the lenses.
Q: Do polarized lenses provide more protection?
No, polarization has nothing to do with the amount of sun protection provided.
Q: Can you put a logo on my sunglasses?
Because we are not the manufacturers of the sunglasses, we do not have a way to customize or personalize them.

Because we are not the manufacturers of the sunglasses, we do not have parts we can send you, unfortunately.

All of the glasses we have on our website list the dimensions of the glasses. We recommend measuring a pair of glasses you already have to compare to the measurements on our website.

We do not. Most of our products come from China.
Q: How do I find out the measurement of the width of the lens and bridge?
We do not list those dimensions on the site--we list the height of the lens, the width of the entire frame, from hinge to hinge, and the length of the arm piece, from the front of the frame, straight back to where the arm ends.
