Legit Check / Authenticity w/pictures!

Postby Real or Fake: Ray Ban Original 2140 54mm. Help Please (: w/ pictures! on Mon Oct 31, 2011 3:15 pm

Hi Guys,

I just recently purchased these off of Ebay for around $80, the seller claimed they were 100% authentic and does provide a return policy just incase.
They look and fit really good on me, there are a couple of things that are making me question authenticity though:

1. The booklet they came with was a little faded.
2. The [link=http://www.opticsplanet.com/sunglasses.html]sunglasses[/link] came in a plastic bag and plastic bags on the temples, not sure if the real ones come with that.
3. There isn't an engraving on the actual frame itself, under the nose/bridge area. People say there's supposed to be an RB there.
4. When I lay the shades on a flat surface, it's not balanced. They lean to the right and only the right leg touches the table.
5. The [link=http://www.opticsplanet.com/ray-ban-brand.html]Ray Ban[/link]/ Luxotica gold emblem on the case looks like its a gold flake or paint on there, not engraved. Not sure on this one.
6. Not sure if there is a recycle symbol on the box.

Here are some pictures, please help me out. And judge!!! Thanks again, guys. Be honest!

Also, the [link=http://www.opticsplanet.com/ray-ban-brand.html]Ray Ban[/link] logos on the legs, seem like they are on a black piece of plastic.
It's hard to explain, but when I look at the Logo, the letters sit on a black background, which is then connected to the left.

I'm not sure on this, but isn't it just supposed to the be letters, with no black background or anything. It's sketchy.

In my professional opinion they are legit. All the package contents are present and the markings look great. An unbalanced frame should not be an indicator of authentic Ray-Ban's. They may have just been worn before. Take them to a local optician have them adjusted and enjoy your Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer Sunglasses RB2140.
