Freshen your perspective.
Drawing inspiration from the rounded shades of the beatnik generation, the Raen Optics Remmy 49 reinvigorates your style with its distinctive retro aesthetic. This particular version is a bit smaller than the Remmy 52, giving it a more refined fit without the oversized look of its sibling. For premium quality, Raen Optics hand-finishes every frame, which is far superior to cheaper injection-molded frames on the market.
Zyl acetate frame material is impressively lightweight, so you won't become fatigued after hours of continuous wear. For visual clarity, the CR-39 lens by Carl Zeiss provides precise optics while retaining a lightweight feel on your head. Each lens features a subtle tint that's effective at blocking harsh sunlight, without overly shading vision when the sun ducks behind the clouds.

These really do look great! I don't wear sunglasses too often, but I've gotten quite a few compliments on these already. They feel great too! They aren't made of a lot of material, so they are pretty light. I don't really notice them once I've had them on for a bit.
The fit on these is good for people with smaller, narrower faces. I have a pretty narrow face. I do think I could use a frame just a bit smaller than these, but they are by no means too big. Just like Kayla said, you could go with the Remmy 52's if you have a larger face or want something that looks more over-sized.
I have lost these sunglasses twice to my dismay right after getting them but always finding them and realizing how obsessed I am with them. The frame fits my face so well without being too big but still getting the style I'm trying to go for. If you want a bigger frame but same style try the Remmy 52's. The color frame Kelp goes with everything. The Smog lense that comes with it works great in super sunny conditions. Highly recommend these.
are these polarized?
