*This guide is a breakdown of a great video by akwardsauce, on youtube, concerning Ray Ban aviator sunglasses. We highlight below the important points in the video that demonstrate some of the details illustrated in our guides, many of which are part of the universal Ray Ban template.
† [Point 11] This point compares the temple arm tips of fake and real Ray Ban aviators is extremely important. We highly recommend watching the illustration on the video for this error detail.
1. [00:45]: The video opens with a demonstration of the cleaning cloth logo. Authentic Ray Ban cloth logos are generally bold. Fake cloths tend to have a faded Ray Ban print. This detail is further illustrated in our Ray Ban II guide.
2. [01:27]: The fake plastic logo tag attached by a string is demonstrated here. More evidence of this blatant error detail is illustrated in our Ray Ban I.
3. [01:50]: At this point the video demonstrates an important variance detail. Not all authentic case snaps will have the ray ban logo etched into them.
4. [02:00]: Note that there is no top stitch on the original case. Compared to the fake case with a top stitch line. This may be an error detail. *More research needed before we can categorize this as a variance detail or error detail.
5. [02:15]: Here the video illustrates the authentic gold foil/metallic Ray Ban logo vs. the phony flat gold stamp on the fake case. A matte gold stamp is an error detail. And should be considered an automatic red flag. This illustrates the point about the faded (fake) vs. bold (real) logo. *This video is a great demonstration of our "Real vs. Fake sticker" diagram in our Ray Ban II guide.
6. [02:24]: The clamp on the back of the authentic Ray Ban case is another example of a variance detail. You will not find this clamp on the backs of all authentic Ray Ban cases.
7. [03:38]: Aviator lens font comparison. The phony Ray Ban glasses will often times have a thicker, bolder font. This is evidence of a lower quality impression.
8. [03:48]: Ray ban logo etched in lens. On the pair in the video, the logo is etched slightly under the hinge. However the authentic Ray Ban lens is parallel to the hinge.
Note: Many fakes do get this placement correct.
F/N: In our Ray Ban I guide, the section titled, "Below is an image of an authentic Ray Ban B&L lens etching, you will notice that on the authentic Ray Ban pictured the etching is slightly lower than the temple arm, which is consistent with the fake demonstrated. However, this is a B&L lens, etched with the letters B&L. Many of the fakes are modeling their Ray Ban lenses after the older B&L lens design. Therefore you will find many fake Ray Ban Luxottica with the old B&L lens etching placement.
9. [04:35]: Good illustration of an off-center stamp or logo.
10. [05:08]: Another error detail that many fake Ray Ban glasses have. They have a B&L (Bausch & Lomb) detail or etch on a Luxottica model.
11. → [05:46]: Excellent error detail uncovered. This is with respect to the mechanics of the frame. Whereas the authentic arms, at the tips, curve. This is a higher quality detail done for comfort and fit. But the fake Ray ban glasses extend out strait, this is done to cut corners on time and money invested.
