Our Story

How We Began...
I had just graduated college, from the University of Maryland, and it was the heart of the summer season. When I wasn't spending my days job searching, I spent the rest of my time outdoors. Whether I was down the shore, on a golf course, sitting by a pool or doing anything else under the sun, I always brought sunglasses with me. 

I always needed a pair of sunglasses that was durable enough to withstand an active lifestyle and simple enough to not break the bank, but I could never find exactly what I wanted.

That's when I decided to make it myself. That summer I came up with my first concept design, which eventually became Brooktide Originals.

Where We Are Today...
At Brooktide, we understand the importance of creating durable products to fit our customers' needs and featuring a variety of designs to fit their personalities, while we keep our products at affordable prices. That is why we relentlessly pursue product perfection everyday.
