The origin story of our name is based on our deep connection to university campus culture, with a special focus on the sports and teams we all passionately support. 1843 was the year of the very first inter-collegiate athletic competition, a rowing regatta contested by Harvard and Yale. Combining the year 43 with Society, an ode to the numerous societies which can be found on any university campus across the country, gave us our company name.
Society43’s wayfarer-style sunglasses, reading glasses and optical cases are designed to allow fans to support their favorite team while accomplishing a functional element. Society43 products feature 100% UV protection, flex-fit hinges, and a unique reflective coating on the lenses. Society43’s products are packaged with a soft cloth storage and cleaning bag and are priced affordably at $15-$16 for cases and readers to $20-$25 for the sunglasses. These features, along with its trendy style, set Society43 apart from its competitors. Customers have expressed their desire to seek out Society43 products in order to avoid cheaply made knockoff brands.
