The Original Leather Sunglass Strap

Growing up in Connecticut on the Long Island Sound summers were spent swimming in the Atlantic, hiking the Westwood Trails and fishing out of Beebe Marina. There was nothing better than throwing on some shades and heading out into a hot summer's day.

After college I found myself looking for a higher quality, more stylish sunglass strap. Unable to find an alternative to the neoprene and cord varieties I set out to create my own. I had leather boat shoes, a leather belt, a leather watch bad; why couldn't my sunglass straps be leather?

Through the mentorship of Frank Clegg, I began learning the leather craft. Many nights and weekends were spent working through different designs, leather suppliers and ways to attach the leather to the sunglass frames.

After launching our first sunglass strap in 2009 we've continued to improve the product to what is now the patent-pending design that we currently use today. Sounders leather sunglass straps are enjoyed by outdoorsmen and women in New England and beyond.

We hope you'll take pride in wearing The Original Leather Sunglass Strap.
