    Ok. So I purchased some DG sunglasses online for a good amount of money. When I received them however, they look fake as heck. They look nice but the logo/symbols on the side look fake as hell. Is there anyway I can remove them?

    I just think that "Dremel" should be the answer to any "How To?" question.

    I've used a dremel to remove 'bumps' on plastic and then sanded and steel wool'd them back to a shiny polished sheen....

    If that wasn't clear from my posts.

    Any model, the accessories used with the Dremel are more important.

    the OP probably bought something like http://www.flyclothing.com/DG-Sunglasses-pr-19652.html. He idd not say D&G he said DG and he said they looked fake, if they were real they should not look fake.

    Try throwing them away. The offending logo is gone, along with the offending thread.
