    I recently bought a pair of Oakley M Frame SI Strike glasses (https://www.oakleysi.com/Product_Detail.cfm?id=97&sid=14&pid=1). I bought them at an Authorized Oakley dealer (The Eye Gallery of Destin). They are signed up for Oakley warranty now. Looking at them closer, I have my concerns on authenticity and I would like to get you guys' opinions.

    A.) My dad has a pair of M-Frames, not the SI military edition like mine. His has the SKU # etched into the side of the frame. Mine doesn't. I'm under the assumption that because they're standard issue, they don't have SKU etched. I would like some input as to whether I'm wrong or not.

    B.) My dad's M-Frames have "Oakley" etched on the lens. Mine does not. I am curious as to whether or not that says anything about the authenticity.

    Any input would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Well the picture you posted has it etched on the lens. I dont believe on other SI models the "Oakley" is on the front but not an expert.

    So, according to your observations, have you noticed that SI doesn't have it etched but normal ones do?

    On other models like the Straight Jacket or the Flak Jacket I never noticed the print on the front. Honestly the only M frame lenses I know of w/o the print are the early first gen ones. I dont know much about the current model M's. Rustpot may need to chime in here.

    I'm hoping to find out if they're real soon due to the fact that I got them on vacation and we're leaving in about 3 days!

    Why dont you post up a pic of the actual glasses you have. That might help a bit.

    Frame looks legit, the lens has a little more side wrap around than I am use to seeing. Need an expert, not me.

    I'd say real!

    I am sure @Rustpot will be along soon to confirm.
