How do you start a sunglass company?

I know selling sunglasses is literally one of the most saturated markets to sell, but I'm just curious and have done a lot of research and cannot find my answer.

How do you find a manufacturer that sells custom sunglasses with your logo? Something like SidebarEyeware or Knockarounds. They are the same style and have their own logo.

Does anybody know any manufacturers that do this? Like I said, I know it's very saturated and difficult to make money, but I'm trying to find out how to do it.

Thanks guys!

There are tons of OEM eyewear factories that will gladly custom design, brand, whatever you want any pair you'd like -
Catch is MOQ is usually around 300-500 pieces with no more than 3 mixed colors.

Could always check alibaba too, contact companies selling frames, ask if they do OEM...
Do you know where I can find these manufacturers from?

I checked Alibaba and they all seem to be very terrible quality. I'm not sure how companies like Knockarounds, Sidebar Eyeware, Nectar, Shady Sluts, etc get that material with their logo on it. Literally can't find my answer anywhere.

It's probably right in front of me but I can't find the answer anywhere.

I appreciate your response though!
Thanks a lot - Will check it out.

Damn, I love this forum. Everyone seems to be so helpful!

More posts will still be helpful! Still haven't found a manufacturer. I am on the lookout though.

First result of the first page of the search.
I am not sure if this is the co. you want to go with, or if the quality and pricing are right for you, but the info is right there. I have no association with the co. but I ranout of applesauce ;)

I am also very interested in this. I know it is very competitive, but I'm ready for it.

I would love to know where to get sunglasses made like the companies Nectar, Blenders, or Knockarounds. Anyone know?
Going to China's Canton Fair would definitely gain you tons of contacts that can help you in this.
