NOT FAKE-Clearly people do not know how to truly tell.
on February 7, 2014
These sunglasses, sold and shipped by AMAZON themselves, are NOT fake Ray Bans (although admittedly, I am speaking only for the tortoise with polarized green/blue lense, I cannot speak for the other colors listed here).
First off, the person claiming that these only had 3 hinges and not 7, insisting they are fake, is entirely wrong. Ray Ban NEW Wayfarers (NOT originals) are supposed to have 3 hinges...it is common knowledge. The originals have a 7 hinge.
Secondly, here are some trademarks that proved my pair were legitimate.
1. The case. My case had the Ray Ban logo on the top of the button, as well as an authentic stamp of Luxottica on the left hand side.
2. The metal Ray Ban logo on the arm of the glasses is almost flush with the arm, NOT extending out.
3. The RB logo is lasered/etched onto the left lens of the glasses. It clearly is not printed, which would signify a fake.
4. All proper labeling for the model number etc. is on the glasses, clear as can be.
5. They are surely polarized. LCD screens are distorted when looking at them from certain angles.
There are more ways to tell, but this is self-explanatory guys- for at least the Tortoise pair, they are NOT FAKE.
Now, onto the product.
This is a very strong fashion symbol. Ray Ban wayfarers are an iconic display of style that will not likely go OUT of style for awhile. Unlike Oakley O-Matter plastic, this Ray Ban plastic is brittle and not malleable. Be sure not to sit on the glasses (of course).
The lenses are excellent. I find they bring out greens very well, and this helps me as a golfer (although I didn't buy them specifically for golf).
Overall, here are the pros/cons.
+Good weight to them
+They are REAL
-Brittle plastic, somewhat delicate in comparison to other materials
-Sizing ambiguity (I recommend going with 55mm for a male, as a general rule of thumb. Better yet, try them out in a local store to see sizing, then buy them here)
This is a great price for a product like this, and there is hardly any risk of getting a fake. Seriously people, at least know what you're talking about before you falsely slander a real deal product.
Recommended for sure.
