If the K is there then they are real. Ray-Ban won't tell me what L or K means, but they assure me that they are.

I am not surprised none of those letters are absent. But most important things are "RB2151 902 52[]21 3N and the right leg reads WAYFARER SQUARE Hand Made in Italy CE."

They seem very authentic.



Another thing that I'm confused about is that I have another pair of RB2151 with exactly the same numbers and everything but they have a "B" on the right leg while the ones I'm looking to buy don't have any letter. Can you help me understand this, I really don't wanna buy a fake pair but with this style being discontinued there hard to find. Please help me lol

The Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer Sunglasses, Black Frame with Crystal Green in 50mm Lenses (901-5022) does not contain any amount of gold or precious stones. There were some models that used to have this feature for some limited edition models. Ray-Ban will do that occasionally and very rarely.

K usually means limited edition
L usually stands for a Large frame
T sometimes means tech collection
A and B I am still waiting to hear back from Ray-Ban themselves.

Hello,

Thank you for the post. I would start by researching the compnay that you bought them from. Also contact Ray-Ban and see if that dealer is an authorized retailer unless it's a private owner that sold you the sunglasses. It may be a defect with the pair so check on the retailer's exchange policy.

These steps should give you some piece of mind.

Hello there,

I've just got this nice new wayfarer rb2132-901L raybans and just wondering about it's authenticity .. Because my previous raybans feels very smooth at every angle (also rb2132 lost them).. but this new one i feel bit of edgy corners specially on top sides of two side and upper part of front end :( otherwise everything was nice maybe this is new one and bit different than that sold in 2012 ?

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.

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

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.

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!
