    What's a question I can ask to someone selling an XS that only a real XS owner can answer? Looking at an XS for sale.

    Ask what driver is needed for the screws inside the nosebridge. Real ones are hex (not torx) while fakes use flathead.

    Yeah it looks okay from that pic but fake XS are the best fakes out there so you really gotta check out that nosebridge thing for something definitive.

    I would say that is a genuine frame as you will usually find the fakes out there are incorrect colour combinations for the frame and lenses, which often appear gaudy compared to the originals. This frame looks good and has the correct colourway - polished with Vr28 polarised lens. You can also ask for the SKU on the arm and verify this yourself.

    That certainly points to it being genuine, but always best to check the other areas before any purchase.
