Glasses have never been particularly innovative. Even if you spent hundreds on a pair of Gucci glasses, they’ll just look like a £10 pair with a logo stamped on it. Standing out with a pair of glasses has become near impossible, unless you want to wear a monocle.

Urban Spectacles of wood don’t make monocles, but they do – as their name suggests – make glasses made out of wood. The glasses are handmade, with maker Scott Urban tending to each one personally. You can even order one made from scratch and make it exactly how you’d want it. The slightly off-putting part is that price isn’t discussed on the site, which usually means it’s pretty expensive. While you couldn’t usually put a price on originality, in this case it’ll cost you a $250 deposit.
