ECPs Share Their Best-Selling Collections for November 2022

The calm before the storm, suns sales slowed as did sales overall, while some brands remain as strong as ever.




Named after the legendary 15-mile stretch of sand cutting through the deep blue Bahamian waters where the Bluefin tuna migrate north, the Costa Tuna Alley angler sunglasses were created to uncover the famous underwater fish highway. With integral hinges, a patented vent system, polarized and made from tough nylon, these men’s performance fishing sunglasses don’t miss much. MSRP: $273

The New Globe L4081-P in Crystal by A&A Optical. In sun, Tuna Alley from Costa. — Colby S., Dothan, AL

Spyder SP4024 from Altair

The Spyder SP4024 from Altair is a men’s acetate and injected combination frame in a rectangular shape with a standard hinge available in three sport colors: Black Diamond, Black Citron and Navy (shown). MSRP: $98

The Spyder SP4024 and McAllister MC450, we can’t keep them in stock! In sun, the RB3625 (Ray-Ban New Aviator) is a great improvement on an already classic and that legend gold just pops! — Nick S., Frisco, TX
