    I bought a pair of OAKLEY X-squared sunglasses from eBay yesterday. Its lens are polarized blue iridium, which is unavailable from OAKLEY standard product catalog. Photo of the lens are not sharp and I cannot see any word POLARIZED etched on the lens. Do you think that the frame and/or the lens are not authentic?

    There doesn't appear to be an screws holding that frame together and the shots are selected to not view from an angle to show that.

    I own another pair of authentic x-squared sunglasses. When I compare it with the photos shown on eBay. I find little difference between the two. When I place a bid, I wonder why all photos are not sharp. The seller is very clever to cheat buyers and so I shall not proceed to complete the transaction.

    On both my XS's the SKU and the 58O20 are on the left arm, not on opposite arms.

    The back of the flex coupler is a dead giveaway that those are fake. The seams on a real one aren't angled like that. They're more of a slight natural curve.

    Fake.... the rivet on the flex coupler seems like bolt, and the back of flex coupler shape is wrong. Even the microbag is wrong.

    the fakes use flathead screws to secure the coupler, they should be hex key bolts
