How do I tell if my designer sunglasses are real?

Don't Fall For Designer Fakes When Shopping Online

When you are searching for designer sunglasses online, don't be fooled by vendors trying to sell you a fake. There are a few things to look for to ensure your new designer shades are the real deal.

The first red flag is that if the price looks too good to be true, it probably is. Just do the math - a retailer must purchase quality designer sunglasses from the manufacturer at a premium price, so they can't stay in business by passing them on to consumers at a significantly discounted rate.

Other tips for finding authentic designer sunglasses online include:

  • Buy from a well-known vendor with a good reputation. Look online for customer reviews and testimonials to give you an idea of the quality of the product and the service.
  • Don't purchase any designer sunglasses that come in unmarked cases and sleeves. Be sure the glasses will arrive properly protected and in the original designer packaging.
  • Verify the make and model of the sunglasses by checking the designer's website. Anyone selling a fake might try to market it under a false model name or number.
  • Verify the designer logo by comparing the logo marked on the glasses with the official logo of the designer. Some replicas will feature cheap, altered versions of a designer logo to try to fool the customer.
