What does Asian Fit mean?

Asian fit styles are nearly identical to their regular fit counterparts, with the exception of a built-up/elongated nose bridge area, longer temples and lighter frame materials. Asian Fit sunglasses are designed as an alternate fit for comfort and wear-ability for those with higher cheekbones and wider or lower nose bridges. If you have problems with standard fit glasses resting on your cheeks, sliding down your nose, or feeling otherwise uncomfortable, you may want to try a pair of these specially designed sunglasses.

Every Face is Unique

At Maui Jim, our patented PolarizedPlus2® lenses are engineered to handle the brightest sun in the world by blocking UV rays, eliminating glare, and managing high energy visible light. We all may live under that same sun and are exposed to the same amount of powerful light and radiation, but we all have differently shaped faces. The sunglasses industry has long produced glasses that sit comfortably on the average caucasian face. With Asian fit polarised sunglasses from our collection, you can have the same high-tech optics in a frame that’s made for you.

Benefits of the Asian Fit Design

Also referred to as “low bridge fit” and “alternative fit,” Asian fit polarised sunglasses have several distinct attributes, including:


  • Wider and flatter frame bottoms that sit comfortably above the cheeks
  • Robust nose pads to keep your glasses positioned correctly
  • Longer temples for improved resting placement
  • Lightweight, yet durable frames

Comfortable Sunglasses Will Help Your Enjoy Your World

At the end of the day, it’s about getting the most out of your experiences and enjoying your life. Premium polarised sunglasses reduce eye fatigue and allow you to spend more time outdoors. Of course, your glasses also need to fit comfortably. If you have a low nose bridge or high cheekbones, you may have had trouble finding a pair of sunglasses that fit as they should. With a design from this elite line of Asian fit sunglasses from Maui Jim, you’ll have an exceptional pair that feels lightweight and comfortable, while also giving you unmatched clarity and colour.

Discover Cutting-Edge Optics

At Maui Jim, we’re guided by the sun. We live under it, play in it, and work in it. We’re inspired by the lush tropical scenery of Hawaii to create lenses that will handle high-energy lightwaves while still allowing rich, true colours to shine through with crystal-clear contrast. Sunglasses in the Asian fit collection feature the same state-of-the-art lenses that come in our standard fit design. PolarizedPlus2 lenses filter out glare and protect against ultraviolet radiation, which helps keep your vision clear and the skin around your eyes healthy. Find a pair that fits you properly, and experience a whole new world of vibrant colours and sharp details.
