    Yes. There are some threads here about them, if you can find them in a search.

    Yeah, unfortunately I got duped by a guy off CL and bought one. Very nice guy though, ended up with a full refund. Very obvious when they are faked.

    In general all fakes of x-metal frame styles have fairly obvious tells, the most common being the flare at the end of the earstems. The exception is the XS - the shape of the fake frames is identical to the originals. You have to spot those by looking at the screws in the nosebridge and hinges, and sometimes the SKU on the earstem is for a different colorway...

    Can you guys help me tell simply from this photo? I haven't paid yet. The frames came into the country today and he sent me photos. I will be transacting with him shortly.

    How do you tell it's a fake from the serial number behind the bridge? Certain numbers? Or is it the font or something?
