    Doesn't matter. Find your nearest trash can and submit.

    Ray Ban's are cheap to begin with, and those are ugly as sin.

    That's a little out of line. They are by no means the most expensive sunglasses, but they definitely aren't cheap. Just because you may be able to afford better, doesn't immediately dismiss everything that is lesser as trash. That being said, they are pretty hard on the eyes, but I am defending the RB name in general.

    Point taken, they are classic though ubiquitous, and it was out of line. Most sunglasses are made by Luxottica anyway, regardless of price.

    What leads you to suspect they are fake.

    Regarding ray ban in general, they do make decent "classics" like wayfarers, aviator, etc. Stick with those and you will be fine

    Ray Bans are ok quality but I'm against the basic fact that they have to plaster their logo on the lens.

    Barton Perreira is not made by Luxottica and on Gilt they are just a bit more than Ray Bans and about 100x better quality and build. Supers at Barneys are on sale every once in a while and on Gilt as well and I feel that they are comparable to Ray Bans

    Just noticed you are in the Netherlands. The amount of fake Ray bans sold on the streets all around Europe is quite high and unless your friend actually works a real job and has known you for a while, I would probably say they are fake.

    The model number checks out, anyway. If fake, they're pretty good fakes.

    To add to shumail, authentic raybans also have the 'RB' logo engraved subtly somewhere on the lens, that's quite a small detail which fakes may normally miss.

    they look real. Personally I really like Ray Ban's if they're the vintage ones. Made in the USA. With the Olympic being my favorite.
