FramesDirect proudly offers brands that manufacture eyeglasses and sunglasses in America. If you prefer American-made eyewear, you can't beat Randolph Engineering sunglasses or Shuron eyeglasses for flawless quality. Made-in-the-USA eyewear is getting harder to find, so browse these American-made frames from makers who place a premium on home-grown workmanship and style.
Eyewear brands manufactured in the USA are few and far between, so choosing a pair of glasses that proudly display the "Made in America” banner is easy. Two brands, Shuron and Randolph, stand alone as the only designer eyewear brands made entirely in the US. Shuron, a celebrated USA-based eyewear manufacturer since 1865 makes retro plastic and metal eyeglasses. They even create frames in patriotic red, white, and blue—perfect for your Fourth of July or Memorial Day celebration. Randolph Engineering, a meticulous maker of quintessential aviator sunglasses, has produced sunglasses for the United States Military since 1978—each one made in the USA. Showcase your penchant for American-made brands by wearing glasses or sunglasses from either of these famed designers.
Industry leaders including Randolph Engineering, known for their signature aviator and pilot sunglasses, and Shuron Ronsir, renowned for classic looks with throwback appeal, craft all of their frames in the USA. Many people may wonder if Costa and Maui Jim make their shades in the USA, they do not. While Costa assembles their glasses and sunglasses in the USA, the brand uses components and parts sourced from outside the United States: All of their state-of-the-art lenses are crafted on-site at their Florida-based headquarters and are then paired with frames made in facilities from around the world. Founded in Hawaii, Maui Jim infuses the design of their sunglasses with the spirit of Aloha. However, the brand’s signature sunglasses and lenses are not made in the USA and are instead manufactured in Italy and Japan.
None of Oakley’s sunglasses are 100% made in the USA. Oakley designs and engineers every pair of frames in California at their Foothill Ranch offices and their sunglasses come with components and finishing parts from offshore facilities owned by the brand’s parent company, Luxottica. If the frames bear the ‘Made in the USA’ stamp, it means that they were assembled in California and may contain some parts or components from overseas.
