Jonathan Paul® vs. the other guys

From your day we went into business in 1993, we’ve seen, read, and heard about many consumers who have been misinformed by other fitover sunglass companies in the industry. We’ve decided to address the most common and most misleading statements made by competitors and media over the past 20+ years. We would like to see our customers (and the industry as a whole) informed about the facts around these statements, as well as how our position in the market has evolved since the early 90’s. Below you will discover common fallacies that “another guys” say, accompanied by hard specifics and our brand’s place on these statements.

The other guys say:
We offer the most frame, lens and color options in the fitover sunglass sector.

Jonathan Paul® says:
While other fitover sunglass companies may offer numerous combinations of lens and frame color options, they are calculating this from significantly less than 10 different designs by combining different lens colors with basic frame color options of their couple of size styles. On the other hand, whenever we say we possess the largest selection of fitover sunglass designs, we are discussing 25 unique style choices all containing at the very least 3-6 various frame color choices and 2-4 polarized lens color choices. This creates over 150 unique fitover sunglass designs. Even though we do have 5 sizing categories, XS-XL, your 25 styles will vary sizes, meaning that we don’t just have 5 sizes, we have 25 sizes in order to accommodate any and all prescription eyewear frame.

The other guys say:
All fitover sunglass temples/arms ought to be adjustable; any additional kind of temple will be cheating the consumer from the ‘appropriate’ fitover sunglass and can eventually become uncomfortable.

Jonathan Paul® says:
This is an impression simply. Jonathan Paul® only bears non-adaptable temples and we think that these are the best option – Here’s why: First, we design our fitover sunglasses with JP Scout Fit Temples meaning that the temples or arms go right back without curving down and for that reason do not hinder your doctor prescribed eyewear frames at all. Secondly, some changeable temples have to be reshaped or adjusted frequently that it can turn into a constant inconvenience to the client. Lastly, changeable frames can trick consumers into buying fitover sunglasses that may be too large for them by allowing them to hook the temples behind their ears. This can cause people to end up with ill-fitting sunglasses and a lot of pain from friction on their eyeglass temples. We only offer non-adjustable scout fit temples since they help customers avoid contact between your fitovers and their eyeglasses also it keeps our choice true to size, as appropriate fitting fitover sunglasses should remain snug on your mind without adjusting the temples.

The other guys say:
“Up to 70% of light that reaches the eyes can be reflected off areas below the eye-line.” As a result, the brow bar and sides should extend below the lenses to produce a barrier beneath the optical eye. Without security below the eyes, you are only getting half of a fitover and the performance is ‘severely diminished’.

Jonathan Paul® says:
We’ve actually seen other fitover sunglass companies utilize this un-cited statistic to scare customers into believing an underside bar is crucial when searching for fitovers. It’s most likely that fitover executive go through a common statistic showing that 70-80% of sunlight from the sky can be reflected off of snow and accidentally misrepresented it. While that is a big statistic, it only applies to snow, while only 10% of sunlight reflects off of soil, grass, and drinking water, and 15% from sand. Apart from properly presenting figures when explaining the significance of wrap-about sunglasses to consumers, we feel it’s important to be transparent about what you’re marketing and the facts around their features. Many other fitover sunglass businesses, including some offering underside bars, say they think that the optical eyes ought to be shielded from all angles, however they furthermore produce and benefit from clip-ons or flip-ups that just protect your eye from the front and may damage eyewear lenses. At Jonathan Paul® we satisfaction ourselves in the truth that we just sell fitover sunglasses. By doing this we can guarantee that all of our efforts go into the quality of our product and we are able to stay true to our company values when it comes to our product benefits. No, we don’t function an underside bar because, nicely, we market sunglasses, not really goggles. Jonathan Paul® Fitovers are fitover sunglasses made to shield eyeglass wearers and appearance like regular sunglasses. As a result, we think that our fitovers must do that – not completely enclose your glasses just like a goggle. In order to incorporate this feature, all styles would have to be so similar they would be almost the same shape, which would cut down variety however you like (and sizing!) options.

The other guys say:
Lacking any underside bar, prescription frames won’t fit correctly or will stand out below the fitover frame.

Jonathan Paul® says:
We understand people’s concerns when it comes to glasses sticking out the bottom of a fitover – nobody wants that. To combat this issue, we have numerous sizing guides obtainable and are pleased to help people dimension their eyeglasses via our customer support division – although our sizing manuals work flawlessly when utilized as directed. If sizing actually does fail, we have a streamline process to exchange ill-fitting frames for a more comfortable, yet still snug, fit. Under zero circumstance will we ever cheat our clients from the perfect fit intentionally. Forcing customers to match their glasses style inside a goggle-like fitover made with underside bars often means selling a fitover way too large even if the consumer’s frame may have been just perfectly aligned with the lower bar. With all of this in mind, we allow consumers to keep the style and look of a regular sunglass without having to be forced into sizing groups much too large for his or her face.

The other guys say:
Fitover sunglasses without side lenses look great and much like fashion sunglasses but are not professional grade fitovers and don’t provide a protective environment for the eyes. Uneducated consumers think the appearance is great but know very well what to consider in a new fitover sunglass don’t. If non-side lens choices expand the sides sufficiently to cut Ultra violet rays, their temples hinder peripheral vision and result in a tunnel effect. Thus, only fitovers with aspect lenses provide adequate defense and when shopping: the bigger the better.

Jonathan Paul® says:
These biased statements couldn’t be further from the truth, with the exception of the comments about appearance – they do look great and like fashion sunglasses! Consumers, regardless of educational training, tend to know what they want (hint: it’s not usually large fitovers, but stylish types) and when they don’t, they depend on industry professionals to supply unbiased, factual suggestions predicated on consumer requirements. Jonathan Paul® provides 12 styles without side lenses and 13 designs with side lenses rather than once have we obtained a complaint concerning the environment they create for consumers’ eyes. For our models without side lenses, we do try to lengthen the sides without compromising the consumers’ fashion-focused desires. With that being said, we find that while the temple sides are usually smaller than conventional fitovers with aspect lenses, they’re more protective than conventional sunglasses. With regards to the threat on peripheral vision or the possibility of tunnel vision: we cannot speak for other fitover sunglass companies, but our fitover designs without side lenses are so much like regular sunglasses these problems are as prevalent for all of us as they are usually for the normal sunglass companies. Putting it simple, when you have no problems with peripheral and tunnel eyesight in regular sunglasses, you will love all of our fitover styles. However, if you do prefer polarized side lenses with 100% UVA/UVB protection, we have 13 uniquely sized styles of those, too.

The function of a fitover is the single most significant aspect. The attraction of coloring and embellishments often results in people evaluating the fitover because they would a sunwear fashion accessory. Not fashion accessories they’re. It can’t deliver the type of environment needed to work well if it looks just like a regular sunglass. For an optical or professional quality fitover sunglass to execute properly they can’t be created as a normal fashion sunglass.

Jonathan Paul® says:
We concur that function is the very first priority when purchasing fitover sunglasses, or even any sunglasses for example. However, a great many other fitover sunglass businesses see function and style as opposing ideals in this industry; we see function AND style instead of function vs. fashion. The idea that a high quality fitover sunglass cannot be fashionable is an old, uninventive and outdated thought process. Why can’t you possess ALL of the efficiency of an optical or expert quality sunglass AND the style of a designer brand name sunglass? It is possible to! Fitovers with exactly the same, or even better, functionality of some other optical grade fitover sunglasses can incorporate fashion and they do exist at Jonathan Paul® Fitovers. The fact of the matter is that people need fitovers because they like to or have to wear their glasses and still need sun defense. Whether they discover contacts to be as well irritating, clip-ons to end up being unfashionable, or doctor prescribed sunglasses very costly, eyeglass wearers have entitlement to the same sunwear components as other people. When considering the buyer as they should, fitover sunglasses are in fact sunwear fashion accessories to them. They don’t need to or wish to be handled any differently than some other consumers and giving them a functional fitover with no attempt at fashion isn’t addressing consumer requirements. With that said, if a customer wants a plainer, function-concentrated fitover sunglass, we bring matte and subtle/solid shades inside our line as well.
Other brands make reference to fitovers with side lenses as “functionally-focused” and dismiss the thought of fitovers with side lenses as being capable of looking great. We bring fashion to the fitover business in both of our part lens options, leaving the type of function up to the consumer. Actually our fitovers with part lenses provide a large selection of lens and framework color offerings, allowing visitors to show their particular personality through design while putting on JP Fitovers. We also believe in putting function first while manufacturing and designing fitovers for eyeglass wearers; that’s why the functionality and high quality of our fitovers aren’t only much like other brands but surpass them in lots of ways. Then, after we’ve ensured that our items are of the most quality, of cost irrespective, we add in the fashion. We offer 44 frame colors, 8 lens colors, and 25 uniquely designed and sized fitover styles. While other brands may provide more combinations of only 6-10 styles, we offer 150+ special fashions among our 25 styles.

The other guys say:
TR90 plastic material frames are harder and much more likely to harm prescription eyeglasses while Nylon12 frames are softer, more comfortable and flexible.

Jonathan Paul® says:
Although Nylon 12 frames could be softer and more flexible; the comfort level of a fitover depends on the sizing, shape, and weight. Nylon 12 frames have a tendency to weigh a lot more than TR90 and while it may be very small to one’s hand, it makes an enormous difference when they’re seated on your glasses, on your own face. Customers also have voiced outrage over the ‘stickiness’ of Nylon 12 frames which is not an issue occurring with TR90 frames. In fact, TR90 frames are used in the optical industry because of their light weight often, flexible traits and durability permitting them to be painted unique colours while never starting to be sticky or too bendable. Whenever a TR90 fitover body uses scout suit temples and will be sized properly to one’s face, the hardness does not have any effect as it shouldn’t touch glasses underneath. Frame type should be left to the consumer preference while industry leaders provide all of the facts around materials.

 

The other guys say:
We have been the “Market Head” & we “set the typical in fitover eyewear,” once we are the benchmark of the fitover sunglass type.

Jonathan Paul® says:
While it’s true that various other fitover sunglass companies could have fantastic fitover sunglasses with regards to utility use, Jonathan Paul® takes the business lead in the industry when it comes to offering the whole package. Not only does Jonathan Paul® offer you Superior Optical Grade fitovers but we are the true benchmark of the group because we provide such a high-quality, Superior Optical Grade fitovers with fashion. We are the only fitover sunglass brand that offers such a large selection of unique styles. Others state to own biggest selection by supplying basic frame and zoom lens combinations; meanwhile, Jonathan Paul® styles fitovers in trending designs such as for example wayfarer, cat eyesight, oval, and many more shapes and sizes that are all uniquely hand-painted. Not only do we offer fitovers that look like regular sunglasses (in sizes for children, too!), we take vision protection seriously by only providing the best quality fitover materials , nor try to make a supplementary buck offering sunwear that puts eye at risk, such as for example flip-ups and clip-ons.

Jonathan Paul® bridges the gap between Functionality and Fashion
Not only do you can expect Superior Optical Grade fitover sunglasses, we have created our own category by introducing a new fitover that provides consumers with function AND fashion. We’ve bridged the gap between traditional fitovers, which focus only on function, and prescription sunglasses that suits individuals’ have to express their character through fashion.

It’s true that lots of fitover sunglass companies consider us their competition, as they should. Although we make similar products, Jonathan Paul® has developed into our own category, free of any true competitors. If you are contemplating another fitover sunglass prescription or company sunglasses, have a look at how we build up, you won’t end up being disappointed.
