I've seen the website before They look kinda interesting, but I wonder how much is technology and how much is sales hype.

I've used them before for VSP patients who wanted sport suns through their insurance. We displayed them right next to Oakley and they sold very well. Quality on lenses and frames was good, returns were super easy, rx range was pretty good.
Is there a big minimum buy-in?
We negotiated the buy in down when we brought them in. Don't remember how much it was to begin with, but think we brought in 18 or so.
I know the owner personally, an independent Massachusetts licensed optician who knows what the customers are looking for. He goes to the extreme to keep his customers satisfied and very easy to do business with. I personally wear a couple of his sunglasses (as well as my kids) and the quality is not hype. Had worn Maui Jim for years and now Reptile as it's replacement. Definitely, would give them a try!
You beat me to it Fezz. It's been about a week.
It appears that you have not been receiving my emails. We do value all inquiries and always respond in a timely fashion. I have responded to your inquiry via email reply on March 12 and a second email on March 13 when i was told by one of the optiboard members that it did not appear that you have received a response from us. I would have called you but you did not include in your original email a phone number, address or store name.
I just received a call from one of our customers that read that you still haven’t heard from us so i thought I’d sign up and leave you this reply.

Maybe the want to show us how they go to extremes to keep customers satisfied!
Or....maybe they want to show how they go to extremes to avoid customer satisfaction!
Or maybe how it takes an EXTREMELY long time to respond to customers!

Figured I'd do a little follow up on the Reptile suns. They've been an absolute pleasure to work with. Being the first place in a different country to carry the line was bound to have a few pitfalls but we managed to overcome them quite easily. An example, the company that creates their rx lenses is Digital Eye in New York. They're not even set up to receive international orders via fax so we route them through Reptile head office in Boston who makes sure the lab in New York gets them. We've been incredibly pleased with their work. There's a lot of talk on these forums about supporting independent brands and this is one that truly deserves it. I've been selling nicer sunglasses for the better part of 15 years and I can say with certainty that I've never looked through a nicer lens.
My 2 Cents.
Oh dear Lord!!! that made me laugh so hard I almost spit my red bull at the computer. I'm glad I wasn't the only one thinking smart butt comments to this.
On the other hand, these lenses seem very interesting I think I would like to look further into it.
Thanks for the laugh Chip!
