    Ok I did something today that I've never done before. Bought some Oakley off Craigslist without actually seeing them live in person. He claimes they are in mint condition and authentic Oakleys. I should receive them by mail on Monday.

    Here is the link

    Where can I learn about how to determine real vs. fake oakley's???

    Sorry, they're fake. Where the T6 screw would go is a molded piece, not 2 separate pieces like they should be. I flagged those a few times but it obviously did nothing.

    As far as how to spot fakes, do a search, there are a few threads about it. Mainly, check to see if the earstem tips point in or out, real = in, fake = out. The part on the bottom outer section or the orbital should be 2 separate pieces with a rubber gasket like I mentioned earlier. Also, I've seen some that have "oakley" printed on the nose.... fake.

    You can always start a dispute then...
    First e-mail the seller and the him they are fake and you want your money back. If he doesn't give it back start a dispute...
