    Just got some Whiskey MD from Ebay, the seller advertised them as NWOT, however when I got them, I noticed that the paint in the upper right orbital have started peeling, is this normal from this colorway or did I get a used pair? Please advise, thanks

    These are very prone for that. To me NWOT on these would mean they haven't been worn as they have been discontinued for a number of years now. Did they come with the brown bag? as they would have had a black bag orignally.

    Yeah they came with the brown bag, looks like the seller is a member here cause he PM'd me assuring me that these are new never worn, damn that sucks as I really like this colorway, thanks

    I wouldn't worry too much as I bet there aren't many of that colour frame about that hasn't suffered from the colour coming off. Just enjoy the classic frame.:thumb:

    He's a good seller. I almost bid on those pair but my pull for the month was already too high.

    Agreed. I have 2 pair and stripped one. The one still with color has a spot where the paint came off and I never wore them once.

    I see so I guess it's more of a design flaw maybe? Either way I'm glad I finally have one

    Those and the Brown Fade were nice but they all end up peeling which is why I sold mine...its too bad this wasnt corrected. Really frustrating for people who liked the colorways
