Shades Club Review

Shades Club is a sunglasses subscription that sends a new surprise style every month. Your first pair comes with a fold-up case to protect your sunglasses and each month you’ll get a soft pouch/lens cleaning cloth to prevent scratches. If you’re a sunnies addict or know someone who is, this is a fun way to discover new styles.

    The sunglasses always come in a branded cloth pouch that doubles as a lens cloth with drawstring closure. The back says “Different days call for different shades”.

      Tortoise Sunglasses – Estimated Retail Value $75.00

      This month’s sunglasses are a mix of plastic and metal frames and I got a tortoise color. The frame around the grey lenses is a plastic brown tortoise, while the bridge is a brown metal. The arms are clear plastic with a tortoise stripe in the center. These sunglasses seem different from the others I’ve received due to there being no “Shades” branding anywhere on the lenses or arms that were present previously. They’re lightweight and seem decently constructed, but lack any kind of personality that others have had.

      Once again, I don’t particularly care for the style, but you need to expect anything to come your way when subscribing to a club like this. When I first pulled them out I thought they’d be too wide for my face, but actually, look pretty good on.

      Verdict: I struck out with Shades Club this month, but I am a pretty picky sunglasses-wearer myself. I think this sub is even better if you have a partner or friend who may like different styles than you so it can always be appreciated by someone. 

      To Wrap Up:

      Can you still get this box if you sign up today? It sounds like you probably will.

      From Shades Club:

      We aim to ship your 1st shipment within the 1st few days of when you order. All subsequent shipments for months 2 and beyond will ship during the first week of each month.

      Value Breakdown: At $29.00 for this pair of sunglasses (including free shipping), I saved $46.00 by subscribing instead of paying retail.

      1. I didn’t get this pair for June when i signed up this month, I think i got last month’s pair. Which is fine cuz those were cute too! You can definitely tell the shades are good quality. A good subscription for people who like surprises and need to add to / start a sunglass collection! I like that these don’t break the bank either like most decent sunglasses would.
