    I recently bought an Oakley Plank from Ebay. It was the 22-196 brushed brown model.
    Do you guys think that what I have bought is fake?

    These are some of the things that I have noticed:
    - first there was this "Made in China" mark in one of the arms.
    - Another is that one of the "O" icons can be easily removed. I think it was glued there or something
    -The screws are not that strong since they tend to tear when I tighten the hinges.

    On the contrary, I have not seen any fake Oakley Planks for sale anywhere on the net or anywhere else. This model is also very rare compared to other common models.
    Everything else seems fair, but I am greatly paranoid due to the fact that i purchased it on Ebay.

    I have attached some pictures of the model.

    So do you guys think that what I have bought is fake?
    Please help, thanks!

    Thank you for your time. But how can we assume that? It could be possible that someone managed to pull it off and create one.
    Are most oakley rx made in china?

    Take it from a guy who used to try and buy the most authentic feeling fake oakleys:

    No doubt in my mind that those are real.

    I do not ASSUME. Assume only creates an ASS of U and ME. If you utilized the search bar and typed in China, you will find a lead to your question.

    As far as the icons, they have an adhesive on the back attaching to the frames. If yours came off easily, yours might be heavily used that caused to come off easily or because you messed with it. Just replace the adhesive and never finger fcuk the icons.
