The Yaletown - a revolutionary new pair of wooden sunglasses with a prescription lens compatible frame.

Introducing the highest quality sunglasses we've ever produced, hand-crafted from multiple layers of walnut and maple wood.


Multi-layer construction makes the frame of the Yaletown much more flexible than solid wood frames and also unbreakable when they're dropped on the ground.


We've spared no expense with our brand new UV400 rated CLARITY A/R Polarized lenses. They are 100% optically correct across the whole lens and provide full UVA and UVB protection. They're made of super tough, ultra lightweight nylon and weigh half the weight of traditional glass lenses. They also have twice the scratch resistance of glass lenses and can withstand any impact you can throw at them.


Polarized lenses block harmful glare from reflective surfaces like water and snow, reduce eye strain and even help you see objects beneath the surface of the ocean. Our lenses have been manufactured using the latest technique where the tint and polarization layers are built into the lens as opposed to being a coating which could flake or bubble over time. You will enjoy an incredibly crisp, clear view in all light conditions. Seeing is believing!


The Yaletown frame features two discreet screws which can be undone allowing an optometrist to switch out the lenses for prescription ones.


The new frame construction makes the Yaletown unbreakable (under normal use conditions). It has been drop tested from 10 feet.


Do you really want to buy yet another pair of oil based plastic sunglasses when you could be wearing beautiful, natural fibres against your skin?


Stainless steel Rx quality hinges allow the frame to flex outwards so the arms won't pinch the side of your face. Enjoy a snug and very comfortable fit regardless of face shape.


Weighing only 21 grams, the Yaletown is one of the lightest glasses frames on the market.


Everyone needs a pair of classic style sunglasses in their lives. The iconic style frame has stood the test of time and suits everyone...and when you look good, good things happen ;-)

Very Happy with this purchase!

I’ve been looking for a new pair of shades with the following criteria for quite some time: Lightweight Polarized lenses Eco friendly Canadian made Bamboo or wood frame Reasonably priced My Wildwood Yaletown sunglasses achieve and succeed all of the above! I LOVE them!! Initially I purchased the Original frame, but when they came the frame just didn’t suit my face (too big). Customer service was super easy and friendly to deal with, I shipped them back and went with the Yaletown instead. I’ve only had them for a week but so far so good! Perfect fit! SUPER light! Love the wood finish! And no pinch points! Worth the extra money to upgrade from the Original to the Yaletown but both are awesome. I love that this is a 100% Canadian company, using ethically sourced products with a mission and values I support. 5 stars!

Sweet Shades

These fit perfectly and look amazing. They really give a cool beach/natural look which is definitely my style since I'm an east coast guy. The tint is just dark enough that people don't see your eyes from up close which is nice since I don't tend to go for the see-through look. I also wanna give a big shout out to Rod! He was super fast to reply and was very helpful. Great company to deal with and will most likely buy from there again. Recommending to my friends too
