How To Tell If Oakleys Are Real




What do you think about this video?

Johann Bertram: Frogskins dont come with cases as far as I know

Prada Devon: I bought some replica Oakley sunglasses last week over on replicaman. com They are the best fake Oakleys I've ever seen. All my friends think they're real! LOL

John Birch: Wrong wrong wrong, get a life dude. Both pair are real.

Omar Abutazil: you sure about this? i bought an oakley frogskin on ebay and it seems legit.. dont tell im screwed? @@

Zach Miller: i got mine on ebay, from a trusted seller(good feedback) that said they were genuine/authentic. i honestly don't know much about frogskins but they had gold lenses with metal hinges and no serial number. are they fake?

Trog7721: im buying oil rig oakleys, do you know how to tell if those are real or not?

starwarsfan2278: @imthesunnyd where did u get those fake frogskins

IrishPride691: hey are the fake ones truly bad? i mean for $14-20 compared to $100+

penguinspeed: In addition, the first gen 'original' frogskins have the metal hinges which are bevelled with two metal dots appearing infront of the logo. They also have the oakley logo on the arms printed as opposed to it being raised and printed on the newer models. They also don't have serial numbers. Finally, they have 'japan' embossed or moulded on the end of the inside of the arm.

J van Delden: @imthesunnyd id didnt knew that.. but thanx for the info :-)

Alan Twardosz-Suder: Nice video :) Visit my YouTube channel and videos with unboxing Oakley Gascan Black Iridium Polarized with correction, which I get yesterday :) and not only, I have videos with unboxing Lens Cleaning Kit and Metal & Soft cases :) check out my channel. Greetings for all.

David Cone: thanks

snipesome: thx this really helped. you assured me mine are real.

imthesunnyd: I was basically reviewing the cases against each other and the glasses against each other. The fakes did come with the fake case but my real case I bought separately from the Oakley sunglasses.

imthesunnyd: On swapping the lenses: I'm not sure. I don't want to try because they are not Oakley quality and may break. Thanks for watching!

imthesunnyd: @snipesome glad i could help you! thanks for watching.

imthesunnyd: @Trog7721 on oil rigs, if the "O" on the side is actually cut into the frame, they are most likely real. Fake ones will have just an "O" on them that looks like its part of the frame. Also, look for screw hinges. Hope this helps! I've never had a pair of oil rigs but have seen fakes in Mexico, etc.

bobbyboldy: Another way to tell if Oakley Frogskins are fake. Is by the fact that they where never sold with cases. But rather with a plastic box and a microfiber bag. Which could very well mean that both of these are fake.

starwarsfan2278: Nvm

kbbates78: I bought Oakley Frogskins in 1991 and still have them from back when china didn't make copies. Just FYI, they did use screws on the hinges AND they did not use serial numbers on the inside of the frame.

imthesunnyd: @Trog7721 most of the time, yes. but other people who have commented have said that some older oakleys have used screws. be careful buying any that have metal screws!

Trog7721: @imthesunnyd Thanks man, so there will be no screws on the real oakleys and if they do there fake?

cnote05: @trog7721 The Originals from the 80's (Like cdmorales99 said) were made with metal hinges and screws......

13stupidarchers: No Coastas and Ray Bans are for FRAT BOY DOUCHE BAGS

grossmaul: can you swap the lenses on the fake ones? or are they glued?

delta3154: Nice

Christopher Morales: fyi.. first generation oakley frogskins where made in japan and had metal hinges, they where actually made better compered to the ones now which are all plastic

cnote05: @cdmorales99 you are dead on!! I have my originals from 1988 clear frame metal hinges On inside of earpiece Oakley and Frogskin are cut in.... I put a video up of them......

Tyler Webb: 12 people found out they had fake Oakleys

TigerFishing24: Buy them from oakley.com and you have nothing to worry about.

bobbyboldy: About that I am sure indeed. The glasses without the screws in the hinges could still be real if there was some kind of mix up in the case they where sold second hand to you. To be absolutely sure post pictures of the actual sunglasses on oakleyforum com The experts there can tell. I am a member there as well. Good luck.

soadfan49: Who gives a freak. Oakleys are for douche bags. Looks like Oakley tried to make knock off Wayfarers. Ray Bans are better.

kevin medina: I personally dont care as long as they look as close to real as possible. The only way of telling whether theyre fake is to take them off and further examin it like check serial numbers etc but at first glance no one is going to tell whether itgs fake or not. I have a pair of frogskins from the Oakley store and they look no different than my copy one i bought for $30. I rather pay $30 than $120.

imthesunnyd: @IrishPride691 the fake ones that I have bought, no they are fine. you can tell there is a difference in the quality of the lenses. especially on the ones i show in this video. but if you aren't picky about your sunglasses, go with the fakes. but you will be able to find cheaper (real) ones on craigslist I'm sure. thats where I have bought many of my fakes and real ones.

imthesunnyd: @jisz yeah the see thru ones don't have serial numbers. there are specific cases where the glasses won't have the code, like custom ones sometimes. but generally, they will have a serial code.

J van Delden: I got my gascan with transparant bluish frame with transparant prescription lenses from a official Oakstore in the Netherlands(Amsterdam) and paid 345euros(460us dollars) and mine doenst have the serial number, and mine are 100% real!! I think because its transparant and customized.The new made oakleys dont always have a serial number(thats what the customer service said to me and also the new made oakleys dont always has THE number)

Joseph Anthony: What your looking at isn't a serial number. It's a sizing number.

Robbie Juskiewicz: wait did you say that no real oakleys have screws? yes they do!

Dan Comey: I have frogskins with no metal hinges and a serial number but the number is so short (7080) are these real or fake

imthesunnyd: @cdmorales99 thanks for the info!
