    Hi,

    The persol 714's were one of the first ever folding glasses, since they are folding this means that they are quite hard to recreate, although i would still be cautious when buying them online. There is another seller named "theaspects4u" that sell real 714's they are where i got mine, they are slightly cheaper then the seller you are speaking about and it has free postage and handling to anywhere in the world.

    They can ship them from anywhere, Israel, China, Pakistan, etc.

    The presentation looks very professional and the English is good. However the vendor does like using "Authentic" & "Genuine" a lot in the descriptions. And they do seem to have hundreds of designer luxury sunglasses, all apparently NWT.

    I'd send them a message enquiring where the sunglasses come from. If they say something like "wholesalers" and the English is obviously poor. Look somewhere else.

    Checkout this one....
