Whether you’re at the beach or just out enjoying a fine, summer day, you can’t go out without wearing your favorite sunglasses. But you also know that eyewear is one of the most expensive fashion pieces out there that is if you buy from the big brands.

Purpyle aims to change that with a mission to design polarized, stylish and high-quality sunglasses at prices under $50.

Greg Grishayev, one of the founders of Purpyle is no stranger to business. Being an immigrant who fled to the United States with his family when he was a young boy, Grishayev learned about hard work at a very early age.

He started his first business selling clothes on eBay with his best friend and now business partner Michael Tolmach. They eventually moved into the vap-ing business and founded Eonsmoke. Within just a few years, the company gained millions in revenues and became one of the biggest names in the vap-ing industry.

But after many years of success, Grishayev and Tolmach decided to close Eonsmoke and focused on building a new business. This time, they ventured into fashionable eyewear.

Realizing the huge demand for high quality yet affordable sunglasses, the business partners created Purpyle, a brand that offers a stylish selection of fashionable eyewear under $50.

Today, Purpyle is making a huge wave in the eyewear industry with its sunglasses being worn and posted by more consumers online. It is also gaining more leverage as a business that’s up against some tough competition, but succeeding at it.

For Grishayev, this is only the beginning of Purpyle’s success. The partners have been through so much building different types of businesses with some ending in failure. But it hasn’t stopped them from dreaming big still and working hard to make sure that they achieve their goals not only for their business but for the causes they like to support.

Both businessmen are passionate about philanthropic work that they choose to share part of their sales to charities and organizations in need.

They also hope to give more in the future, especially in funding Parkinson’s research, which is close to Tolmach because it was the disease that took his father away.

As Purpyle continues to redefine itself, Greg Grishayev and Michael Tolmach are also finding ways to make their brand better. And being adventurous entrepreneurs, who knows what’s next for this dynamic duo?
