    Blue Jumper Trying To Get The New Disney Frames

    Good morning guys and gals! Hope yall are doing great this week. One of my Doctors is wanting to try and get the new Disney frames in, so I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with the new license. I know Italia Independent picked it up last year, but given that everything I try and look up just brings up the old Luxottica stuff, I was wondering if anyone had any insight. How's the quality, is it worth investing in, and how easy are they to deal with, if at all in the States. Thanks guys!

    Ray-Ban has joined the clothing and accessories brands releasing merchandise for Mickey Mouse’s 90th birthday! The popular glasses brand will soon debut new Mickey Mouse sunglasses to be sold exclusively at Disney parks. And this time, D23 members will be the first to gain access to these adorable sunglasses.
    The newest Ray-Ban Mickey Mouse design is a pair of the classic Wayfarer glasses featuring custom artwork by Disney lead artist Jeff Shelley. The sunglasses are stylish and timeless, especially with the addition of Mickey Mouse on the interior of the frames. Each pair is unisex and can fit anyone’s personal style.

    So here's Italia Independent's Disney website https://italiaindependent.com/en/sunglasses/disney/ and https://italiaindependent.com/en/eyeglasses/disney/. I don't know if you're seeing the same thing, but I'm seeing "Not for sale in your country" on all 10 frames that they are showing

    The only thing I can add is that I dealt with Italia Independent for their house sunglass line and the quality was good and they were easy to deal with. The only problem for us is that we couldn't sell enough to support keeping the line.

    Dang. Showing for me as well. Was the same thing back when they originally dropped last year. May have to contact them and see what we can work out. I think my Doctors are wanting a rep to stop in with them but I don't think that's gonna be possible by the looks of it. And we can't order anything online. Thanks JP! Definitely appreciate the help! :)

    I thought one of the supply companies picked up the disney line in the USA. It's not optisource or hilco.

    We thought that as well. But we can't figure out who it is. :/

    I'm pretty sure it was optisource. I would call them and ask if something fell apart with the deal.
