A GOOD CATCH

Costa Sunglasses presents Trevally, its newest sunglass style honoring the strength of the trevally fish. “Some anglers spend their whole lives chasing trevally, often leaving with nothing but a great story to tell,” says Al Perkinson, vice president of marketing for Costa.

Trevally is made of bio-based resin sourced from the castor plant, and can be customized with Costa’s patented color-enhancing polarized 580 lenses, as well as customized Rx sun lenses. The style is available in Tortoise, Matte Black, Matte Orchid, and Matte Tortuga Fade frame colors with Gray, Copper, Blue mirror, Green mirror, Silver mirror, and Sunrise lens color options. Suggested retail price is $159.
