Do LLC sunnies take prescription lenses?
YES! All Life Less Common frames can take prescription or custom lenses. Simply take the frame to your own optometrist for your custom lens to be fitted.
Life Less Common is unable to process prescription lenses directly on behalf of customers. Please check with YOUR OWN optometrist before purchasing Life Less Common sunglasses to check that they are willing and able to fit a custom lens on a Life Less Common frame. Any dealing with third parties such as an optometrist, and any expenses incurred are the responsibility of the customer, who does so at their own risk. Life Less Common is not responsible for the outcome or liable in anyway.
What if my sunnies are faulty?
We offer a 12-month limited warranty from date of purchase which covers manufacturing defects in workmanship and materials. Please keep your receipt as proof of purchase to validate your warranty.
This warranty does not include general wear, scratched or broken lenses, fading or frame deterioration. Damage not associated with normal wear, such as pressure breaks, excessive heat, intentional bending, abuse or general misuse is also not covered.
If there is a genuine defect, that’s not cool. Please let us know here. On review of warranty claim, Life Less Common reserves the right to replace or repair items, in part or full at our complete discretion. Please see our full 12-month warranty here.
How do I care for my sunnies?
To protect your Life Less Common sunglasses, your purchase comes with a microfiber cloth and triangular hard case which can be folded flat for easy storage when not in use. Sunglasses should be kept protected in this case when not being worn. Show your sunglasses some love and clean your lenses and frames regularly with the microfiber cloth. The cloth can be washed when necessary in mild soapy water and air dried.
Please treat your Life Less Common sunglasses with care. Do not drop your product, do not subject your product to water or chemicals, and ensure your product is not left in an environment where temperatures may exceed 50 degrees Celsius (like as a hot car). Any damage caused through such situations will not be covered under the 12-month warranty.
What is polarisation?
Polarisation is a thin film coating on the lens that blocks reflected light (glare) of flat surfaces, such as water or roads. This makes improves image clarity and colour.
A lot of people believe that the darkness or tint of a lens is what protects your eyes, but this is not true. Tints can relieve squinting and offer temporary relief but don’t protect against harmful UV rays or stop glare. The only way to truly protect your eyes in this harsh Australian sun is to have polarised lenses and UV protection.
All Life Less Common sunglasses are polarised for superior image clarity and have 100% UVA/UVB protection.
Where are Life Less Common sunglasses made?
Life Less Common sunglasses are designed in Melbourne, Australia at the LLC Studio. All our sunglasses are hand-crafted in China using quality global sourced components. We only work with SEDEX approved factories who are committed to the continuous improvement of ethical performance within their supply chains. For more information about SEDEX click here.
