Society43, after the year that collegiate sports started (1843), was started in 2010 by Jason Bolt while he was a student at the University of Oregon. Having always been an avid sunglasses collector (200 pairs and counting) and a sports fanatic, he recognized an opportunity to create a socially conscious company that specializes in well built, exciting, and affordable sunglasses for collegiate sports fans. Society43 has seen tremendous growth over the last two years, now offering officially-licensed sunglasses for more than 60 of the largest universities in the world and over 3,000 custom sunglasses combinations with new colors added monthly.
