    Hello,

    I recently lost my Team USA Deviation sunglasses and I am devastated. I have been looking around eBay for a new pair because now, as I am sure everyone can assume, they are no longer available from Sunglass Hut or Oakley in general. As all buyers are on eBay when it comes to purchases like this, I am a little hesitant to buy anything because of the possibility they are fake. Now, I read countless guides on how to spot fake ones but I am just not too sure now. A lot of the ones that I am seeing on eBay have "CHINA" printed on the arm with the item number, and I know that Oakleys are made in the USA.

    If you do own a pair of these USA Deviations, can you please check your pair and see if it says "CHINA" on one of the arms?

    Thanks for all the help in advance.

    Team USA - "Made in China." That just doesn't sit well with me...

    Never realized that. I know many have gone to China production and I'm generally on with that, but not Team USA. That just ain't right...

    Exactly why I am suspicious about these.

    Yep; these are Chinese in origin. Is this a sufficient description, @Ralphy?

    No need to be suspicious, all wire frames are made in China. I just think it's ironic on this pair.

    Yeah it is pretty ironic. I would have thought that Team USA glasses would be made in the USA.
