Andrew Smith: Good points, though some points like Serial numbers can be faked. Screws
may or may not mean they are fake since some real pairs do have screws.
Check out this thread for some other tips on how to spot fake Frogskins
http://www.oakleyforum.com/threads/how-to-spot-fake-frogskins.4101/ . These
points are not true for every pair of Oakleys. Depending on the pair,
design etc. counterfeit pairs may have serial numbers, screws and even say
"Made in U.S.A". A good tip is to look out for an "O" sticker on the
lenses. Aside from "Polarized" stickers, Oakley does not put "Oakley", "O",
or anything similar on there lenses!
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
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.
Wyatt: 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.
Wyatt: 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!
Wyatt: @snipesome glad i could help you! thanks for watching.
Wyatt: @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
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.
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.
Wyatt: @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......
grossmaul: can you swap the lenses on the fake ones? or are they glued?
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
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.
Wyatt: @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
Wyatt: @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)
Dixie Normus: 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
