    Hi all i am new here, i was recommended this forum via a cycling group on facebook as i have purchased a pair of supposedly legit jawbreaker polarized sunnies via ebay from germany from a seller who deals in all kinds of optics & has around 3500 feedback with 100% score, the seller has also been an established ebay member since 2008, However i own several pairs of legit oakley's and just arent 100% convinced these jawbreakers are legit! the quality doesn't seem right i mean the adjustable arm lock on one side does not sit as flush as the other side & furthermore the product code lettering seems to be poorly stamped as if the lettering has bled downwards, additionally they were not provided with any genuine packaging or accessories, the ebay seller's username is: brillenspass & see attached photo's

    seller looks to be legit (although i have no previous knowledge of this seller). i would say that your pair are genuine but maybe seconds? i would contact the seller and ask for an exchange/refund.

    The seller maybe has a access to legit but returned/sub standard sunglasses to sell on.

    If you paid anywhere near eBay/internet Bnib prices I'd return them .

    Perusing his eBay store, his stuff is listed near MSRP or market value. No bueno.

    I take it that you're in the U.K/E.U?
    Granoptic are usually pretty good price wise and orofashion on eBay often have really good prices and are definitely legit

    Send them back with my haiku:

    These may be legit

    They just look like sh!t.

    If you're still on the fence...

    Open the jaw, remove the lens, see if the pads are there. Between both pairs I have, the SKU is printed differently but they're both real. The "arm locks" can flex if pulled at the ends, hence possibly not looking flush.
