Shades Club Review - September 2019

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 (check that here) and each month you’ll get a soft pouch/lens cleaning cloth to prevent scratches. I don’t always love the sunglasses I get each month because I’m picky, but this is a subscription that people who love variety will probably like.

    Party In The USA Sunglasses in Black & Gold – Retail Value $75.00

    This month’s sunglasses are definitely more my style than in past months! The black plastic oversized shades have gold metal arms with plastic ends that match the frames. The lenses are a solid dark grey which I prefer but aren’t so dark that I can’t see where I’m going. These feel pretty solid as well, like they wouldn’t break easily when I’m taking them on and off or tossing them in my bag. Normally the sunglasses are branded with “Shades.” but this time there is only a little stick figure in the top left lens which comes from one of their sister lines of sunnies. Sometimes they will “test” things out and send pairs with minimal logos to see how subscribers respond. What I learned is that you can absolutely give them feedback via email or chat and Shades Club will do their best to accommodate styles you prefer. You can always change your preferences like gender, head size, etc by contacting them.

    Here they are on! These have to be one of the better pairs I’ve received. I like the round shape and oversized look.

    Verdict: Last month with Shades Club I wish I had gotten a round pair and this month they delivered! Woohoo! For $29.00 I got a pair of sunglasses that retail on their sister-site for $75.00 which is, of course, a good deal. While I might not pay $75 outright, I think these are definitely worth the $29. It’s also good to know that they do their best to make subscribers happy and take suggestions. 

    To Wrap Up:

    Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You may not get the same pair I received because of preferences. Feel free to reach out to their customer service if you want more info.

    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 (about 61%) by subscribing instead of paying retail.
