    It matters because if they're listed as Oakley on eBay and they're fake that's grounds for a PayPal dispute where you can get your money back...... If its CL your screwed.....

    From the pics they don't look fake. They look like a Polished Clear w/ Violet Iridium pair. The only way to tell would be:

    1) Weight of them (fakes feel a lot lighter than real Oakley Frogskins)
    2) Is the paint on the logo on the stems neat or is it off? If it's off (well off on both sides) it's a sign they could be fake
    3) Fake Frogskins lenses will never fit in to the frame of a real Oakley Frogskins
    4) What microbag did it come with?
    5) Did they come boxed and is the box tagged with the correct SKU?
    6) Does it have the right paperwork and/or does the paperwork include spelling mistakes?

    The first thing that made me assume these were fake was that the arms did not seem to open all of the way. I thought the arms should be more parallel.

    1 and 2 seem good.
    3 I know you guys will hate me, but the auction said the lenses were fairly scratched, so I bought a pair of VL lenses. So in a few days I will be able to test this one.
    4, 5, and 6. Nothing else was included.
