We shop for just about everything online these days – from groceries to clothes. But there are some things that, by their very nature, aren't so easy to shop for online – one example being eyewear. Sunglasses and spectacles often need to be tried on before being purchased, to ensure they're the right frames for your face shape. Which is why MONC, a London-based eyewear brand renowned for its sustainably-made unisex frames, has come up with a solution to finding the perfect fit for any face shape – from the comfort of your own home.
With MONC's home try-on system, customers can choose up to four sunglasses or spectacle frames (free of charge) and enjoy five working days to trial the frames at home. Once the five days are up, simply return the frames using the re-usable packaging, again completely free of charge.
The home try-on concept certainly isn't unique to MONC, but the brand's approach is. Unlike other brands that use cardboard packaging that's wastefully tossed away, MONC developed a shipping wallet that's designed to be re-usable for at least five years. Zip sealed, manufactured from durable heavyweight PVC and coated with nylon material, it's durable and easy to clean, promising years of use.
Furthering its sustainability credentials, MONC ensures its home try-on deliveries are carbon neutral by partnering with parcel delivery company DPD for notified next day service.
If you're on the hunt for new specs or sunglasses but don't want to commit to frames that might not quite suit, we can only recommend you give MONC's home trial kit a whirl.
