These lenses are 100% UVA / UVB protection and can sustain continuous use in temperatures up to 100 °C and up to one hour in 130 °C.
What are your frames made out of?
- Premium biodegradable M49 Bioplastic acetate by Mazzuchelli Italia (cellulose acetate and a plasticizer of vegetable origin)
- The finest metals in the world including titanium, stainless steel, sterling silver, and 18k solid gold

Can I put prescription lenses in your frames?
Currently all styles excluding The Milan Big and Bold can be fitted with prescription lenses by a licenced optometrist. Please check with your provider as ability may vary.
Are your lenses polarized?
We use Carl Zeiss lenses for all our sunglasses. These lenses have a scratch resistant coating and provide 100% UVA / UVB protection and can sustain continuous use in temperatures up to 100 °C and up to one hour in 130 °C. They are also resistant to gamma radiation, material fatigue, aging and most chemicals. Our polarised lenses reduce glare from the ocean surface, car hoods and other reflective surfaces ensuring you clear vision all the time.
How should I take care of my Avantguard sunglasses?
Each pair of sunglasses comes with a chemical free microfibre cleaning cloth made from recycled plastic bottles. Use this cloth to keep the frames clear of particles and always store in the AG case provided when not wearing. Do not leave your glasses in your car, as heat from the car causes the acetate to warp and flex out of alignment. Be sure not to lay your glasses face down on any surfaces or to expose them to rough textures such as sand.
Why don’t you sell The Avantguard masks anymore?
Avantguard masks are still available for purchase online HERE. There is limited stock of these masks available and we will no longer be producing them once they have sold out.
