Man wearing wooden sunglasses

Over the past few years the market for men’s wooden sunglasses has exploded, and it’s not hard to understand why.

In addition to being significantly cheaper than most frames from the major sunglass brands, wood sunglasses also give off a cool, rugged and down-to-earth vibe that makes them feel both stylish and natural.

Unfortunately, while the sheer quantity of wood frame sunglasses has been exploding at a crazy clip, the quality of these shades varies pretty wildly, making it tough to know how to best direct your sunglass budget.

This makes it particularly tricky to shop for men’s wood sunglasses online, because many of the cheaper models look good in pictures, but don’t quite pass muster once you try them on.

To help you save time, I’ve separated the best from the rest, and rounded up the coolest, most stylish and all around best wood sunglasses for men that provide maximize value for your hard-earned money. 

The Best Wood Sunglasses for Men 

Breaking Down the Best Mens Wood Sunglasses  ↓

Best Overall:

Ray-Ban Clubmaster Square Wood Sunglasses

Ray-Ban Clubmaster Square Wood Sunglasses

The best Bond girl of all time once said, “There are dinner jackets, and there are dinner jackets. This is the latter.”

If the same can be said for wood sunglasses, then these are most certainly the latter.

A lot of the wooden frames on this list are modelled after Ray-Ban’s classic Clubmaster design, but why settle for an imitation when you can have the original?

Combining the timeless style of the Clubmaster’s squared off lenses with wood frames in a perfect shade of medium brown, the wood Clubmasters are the O.G. – and worthy of 007 himself.

EyeBuyDirect – The Hamptons

EyeBuyDirect - The Hamptons Wood Sunglasses

From the original to a (pretty damn handsome) homage, The Hamptons model from EyeBuyDirect combines the timeless and sophisticated cool of Clubmasters with the rugged earthiness of oak wood frames.

The result is a pair of wood sunglasses that’s somehow both of-the-moment and a total classic all at the same time.

4EST Shades – Maple Wood Wayfarer Sunglasses

4EST Shades - Maple Wood Wayfarer Sunglasses

Another pair that owes its design template to Ray Ban, this classically shaped pair from 4EST (get it?) should satisfy anyone in the market for wood wayfarer sunglasses.

Made from maple and available in both black and brown, this pair is clearly modelled off the shape of the Original Wayfarer, which was slightly more square than the more modern New Wayfarer update.

EyeBuyDirect – Sergi

EyeBuyDirect – Sergi

EyeBuyDirect’s Sergi model combines acetate lens rims with wood arms for a sharp-looking hybrid pair.

In addition to the unique combo of materials, what I like about this pair are the small details that help it stand out, including the keyhole shape on the bridge of the nose and the double dots on the rivet (which is the name for the little symbol that often appears in the corner of glasses frames).

Woodies Brushed Gun Metal Wood Sunglasses

Woodies Brushed Gun Metal Wood Sunglasses

If Tony Stark (RIP, #ILoveYou3000) wore wood sunglasses, this would be the pair he’d choose.

Another hybrid model, this pair from Woodies combines a metallic frame with wood-lined lenses and is available in both walnut wood and zebra wood.

You can rest assured that if Stark bequeathed these to Peter Parker, Jake Gyllenhaal would be stealing ’em. (Did I mention that I’m, like, really into the Marvel movies?)

Viable Harvest Store Polarized Bamboo Wood Sunglasses

Viable Harvest Store Bamboo Wood Polarized Sunglasses

Another pair made in the traditional Wayfarer style, these light colored bamboo sunglasses from Viable Harvest give off distinctly laidback summer vibes.

They also come with polarized lenses, so your eyes will stay protected from UV rays as you’re soaking up the sun.

Woodies – Polarized Clear Acetate

Woodies - Polarized Clear Acetate

This polarized pair from Woodies provides both protection from the sun and a serious pop of color.

Made with zebra wood arms, on this pair the colorful lenses are set within clear acetate, which help both the shades (and you) stand out.

Eye Love – Ebony Wood Wayfarers

Eye Love - Ebony Wood Wayfarers

A few of the wood sunglasses on this list look like homages to Wayfarers, but this pair from Eye Love looks pretty damn close to the real deal.

Its black acetate rims are shaped almost exactly like legit Wayfarers, while its dark zebra wood arms give it the earthy look that defines men’s wood sunglasses.

Woodies – Zebra Wood Aviator Wrap

Woodies - Zebra Wood Aviator Wrap

Another pair from Woodies where the lenses really pop, these thick, squared-off aviator style shades from Woodies make an immediate statement thanks to the colored lenses and the imposing black rims.

With these ones you also have some options for the lens color: they’re available in blue, green or “ice blue,” which is what’s shown here.

Hammockable – Handmade Maple Wood

Hammockable - Handmade Maple Wood

I firmly believe that the (handsome) devil is in the details, and this pair from Hammockable is all about the details.

In addition to a perfect medium-brown maple wood color, the arms are engraved with a unique pattern you won’t find on other wooden sunglasses, while the rims are layered with a pop of color that adds a fun further distinction.

Ray-Ban Rb4246m Clubhouse Wood Round Sunglasses

Ray-Ban Rb4246m Clubhouse Wood Round Sunglasses

Many of the wood frames on this list were inspired by classic Ray-Ban designs, but this is one of the few pairs of wooden sunglasses actually made by the iconic company itself.

These wood versions of the company’s rounded Clubhouse shades, subs out the usual acetate for a light colored wood, resulting in a hip summer-ready pair of shades that feels very of the moment.

Woodward Polarized Mahogany Color

Woodward Polarized Mahogany Color

Wooden sunglasses (like sunglasses in general) are among the more unisex fashion accessories, but one thing that helps distinguish mens wood sunglasses from pairs made for women is the color.

This pair from Woodword is made from lightweight bamboo, but has a deep mahogany color that makes them look both more masculine and (in my opinion) more sophisticated.

iShine Geren Bamboo Frame Sunglasses

iShine Geren Bamboo Frame Sunglasses

And speaking of color, while most men’s wooden sunglasses come in various shades of brown, you’re not totally stuck in the tan color family if you want to rock wood shades.

This pair from iShine is made from bamboo but has been painted in a great shade of medium green that still allows you to see the grain of the wood underneath, resulting in a rugged wood frame that still allows you to add a pop of color to your wardrobe.

Woodies Half Rim Ebony Wood Sunglasses

Woodies Half Rim Ebony Wood Sunglasses

Easily one of the most sophisticated-looking pairs on this list, these half-rim shades from Woodies are another pair modelled after the famous Ray-Ban Clubmaster.

While wood sunglasses tend to look more casual than other styles, the dark ebony color used here really elevates the frames, making them the perfect frames to pair with a summer suit.

TREEHUT Wooden Bamboo Sunglasses

TREEHUT Wooden Bamboo Sunglasses

This pair is a perfect example of how the same inspiration can lead to very different designs.

Also modelled on Clubmasters, these bamboo frame sunglasses from Treehut use a lighter, more traditional bamboo color for the arms, combined with black acetate rims and some killer silver lenses.

The result is a pair of wood frames that’s based on one of the most classic sunglass styles of all time, but feels totally fresh and unique.

PolarSpex Retro Classic Wood Sunglasses

PolarSpex Retro Classic Wood Sunglasses

This is one of the few “cheat” pairs on this list, meaning that the frame isn’t actually wood at all – it’s plastic that’s designed to look like wood.

While this may not be acceptable to wooden sunglass purists (which, believe it or not, is a category of people that does in fact exist), it does offer a few benefits.

Namely, it combines the flexibility and durability of plastic with the cool earthy look of wood, making for a great pair of shades for anyone who doesn’t mind keeping a secret. (I won’t tell if you don’t.)

Oakley Wooden Sunglasses

Oakley Wooden Sunglasses

If you’re looking for authentic Oakley wood frames you may be out of luck, but the good news is that their popular Holbrook model comes in multiple shades of woodgrain and sports a handsome keyhole nose bridge, making them the perfect pair for anyone who wants a wood(-looking) pair that they can wear while playing sports.

Ray Solée 3-Pack

Ray Solée 3-Pack

Another pair of cheaters – or to be more specific, three pairs.

These plastic Wayfarer-style shades from Ray Solée look a little less convincing than some of the other cheaters listed above, but come in a pack of three, each with a different woodgrain color, and the price for all three is less than most of the individual pairs on this list.

Southernmost Shades Natural Wood Sunglasses

Southernmost Shades Natural Wood Sunglasses

If you’re disappointed that you can’t find authentic Oakley wooden sunglasses, there’s good news: this pair from Southernmost Shades looks a lot like the Holbrooks above, but is made from real wood and sports a great dark brown color.

I also like the details on these frames – the arms and inner rims reveal the lighter-colored inner layer of wood, making for a cool contrast that adds an extra stylish touch.
