Your Ray-Ban glasses look real. The logos on the temple and on the demo lens, the bar code on the box, the markings inside the frame - all looks good.

Two things jump out at me with these.

01) The arm hinge is single-barrel, whereas all authentic Ray Ban sunglasses I've handled have seven-barrel hinges, as pictured here:

02) The case isn't real at all. It doesn't look anything like the old style or new style Ray Ban case and, most importantly, the button on the outside of the case doesn't have the Ray Ban logo. All authentic cases I've seen do.

Anyone else with input? These look like good fakes to me.

I am holding some authentic Ray-Ban Wayfarer Square Sunglasses RB2151 with that same hinge pictured.

Just so you are aware! The hinge may not be a good indicator.
