How to spot fake Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses and buy genuine Ray Ban Wayfarers
Here you will find a guide to differentiating between genuine Wayfarers and fakes/replicas. This post uses 3 pairs of Ray Bans, 2 fakes bought on eBay, and 1 genuine pair.
First check your box. For genuine Ray Ban Wayfarers it should show no signs of being bashed around. It shouldn't be overly shiny. Check the side, you should see a label with barcodes on. This shows it's from a reputable retailer.
Now the case. It should feel like quality leather and will be well stitched, with a shiny logo on the left side. The popper will also have a logo on it. A real case will have a hardened front too.
Now for the contents. The glasses themselves usually have a label from the retailer where you got them. A booklet of 'Icons'. A package containing the cleaning cloth and manufacturers note.
