Eyewear Clearance has over 20 years experience in the eyewear wholesale industry. We want to help buyers avoid being ripped off with replica Rayban eyewear. Over the years we have come across many fake Ray Ban frames so we know what you should look for to determine the authenticity.
Fake manufacturers are incorporating more features within their frames to make them look genuine, so don't think that if one of the tips below is present in the frame that it is authentic, a genuine frame should show several of the signs below.
What to look for in genuine Ray-Ban Eyewear
1. Interlocking RB logo lazer etched into the lens on the left eye near hinge
2. Check it is etched, not painted - Etched logo will scratch off, painted won't.
3. Inter locking 'RB' logo on nose pads and should be interlocked
4. All rubber frame covers should be dusted with a kind of chalky type substance and not stiff, sticky, or slimy.
5. Care leaflet black and very glossy and machine folded.
6. Soft case - suede lined nose bridge within case. Gold Luxotica logo - should be sharp and clean.
7. Check the Lens type (say *3N) is the same as the guarantee card.
8. The grey box has a recycling logo on it which may absent from the fake.
9. The cleaning cloth should appear a quality product, and logo should not appear faded.
General buying tips
a. Check feedback comments. Past buyers comments are an invaluable tool for determining if the seller has ever sold fake goods. Read comments from as far back as possible.
b. Where is the seller based? If the Sellers location is China and you are buying designer goods, there is a very high chance it is a fake as China is the world's biggest exporter of fake goods. (No disrespect to the genuine sellers in China).
c. Check the sellers other items for sale, if those look fake then you are taking a risk with the item you are interested in.
d. If the price is too good to be true then ask yourself why? Why would any honest business man or woman sell an item for way below its RRP price? A price which is similar to other sellers is usually a good sign.
e. If the pictures are copied from the manufacturers website or brochure then ask why is the seller not providing pictures taken by themselves. Is there something they don't want you to see?
d. Money back guarantee. If this is provided, then great, if not the seller is not allowing you to return the product which you are legally entitled to do under the distance selling regulations act.
