    I have a fat head, and actually prefer the asian fit. Sample pairs were the ones put out to demo in stores so, they may have some wear to them. Lense and frame scuffs etc...

    Everyone always claims “perfect". Who knows, they may be. The soft vaults should always be included, IMO. They come with the glasses and are easily available anyways. I'm no professional but, for $75, sounds fair. Are they going to be a regular wear for you, or a project pair?

    Also, beware, this frame has been counterfeited.

    Perfect for cycling. For $75, if they are authentic, it's a good deal. Even if they are sample frames, you are using them for sporting activities and do not need to be perfect. But, they are advertidlsed as so. Look them over. I think it's worth a go. Just my opinion now.

    I could be imagining things but I think this exact thread was done before . Short answer to or is that there shouldn't be a difference between regular and af. I heard samples fit tighter but never handled one to recognize authenticy.

    I recently bought an af split jacket. The only difference in size is the nose pieces. Which are interchangeable anyways.
