Hello,

Thanks for posting. That code doesn't seem to be recognized. Could you possibly include a picture of the temple arm with this code?

I will see what I can do.

The Ray-Ban RB4165 Sunglasses has been a big hit with consumers. Ray-Ban just added new colors to the selection. The color code 867 doesn't seem to be available. What color is it and could you send a picture?

Thanks for the pictures. The RB4165-876 doesnt seem to be offered by Ray-Ban. Interestingly enough none of the RB4165 are polarized. It seems like you have a fake.

Hello, I recently purchased a pair of Rayban RB2140 Wafarer sunglasses on Amazon for $127. They seem authentic, however the sunglasses do not seem to be as heavy as I would expect if the lenses were glass.. On the left temple piece the inscription reads: "RB2140 901/58 50[]22 3P". The right side reads: "WAFARER hand made in Italy K CE Polarized". Can anyone tell me what kind of lens these glasses have? What does the "3P" stand for? Are they glass or plastic lenses? Also, were glasses with these specifications once offered by Rayban or are these possibly fake? Thank you in advance

Thanks for the post. It sounds like the are very authentic. You are noticing the XLT glass lenses. they are thinner and lighter than traditional glass lenses. Enjoy your Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer Sunglasses RB2140s!

Thanks for the pics. The temple arm logo and and case in the background look great. The shiny black frame wouldn't allow you to see through it. The plastic is not intended to be opaque. Try taking a look at the inside of the temple arms. If the model number, color code and size are not present then you should worry.

I hope that helps.

Those numbers seem right. Heavy is good, it indicates they are glass.

Thanks for the post. Official answer from Ray-Ban: "The letters L, K and A are demarcations from our manufacturer, they don’t contain any size/color/material information that would be of any use for the end user."

The presence of Ray-Ban MADE IN ITALY A CE is your proof of authenticity. Enjoy your sunglasses.
