I have had my original pair for about 5 years and they have been my favorite glasses. The lenses block out just enough light to work great in bright sun, but aren't too dark indoors or while driving. These glasses fit my face perfectly and are very light. My original pair lenses are separating at the bottom. It's because these are frameless and when set on a surface, the lens layers are actually touching the surface. Over time, they can delaminate. It is not in my field of vision yet, so I still wear them.
I just got my new pair in from Amazon. I noticed that every store I checked, they were Made in China. I checked numerous local SunGlass Huts, Saks, Macys, the airport sunglass store, etc. All were Made in China. I figured if they all were now, I might as well get them as cheaply as possible on Amazon ($95).
The Made in China lenses are darker than my previous pair. They also seem to be more reflective and have a blue hue to them. Note that the printing on the inside are the exact same model, with the exception of Made in China versus Made in Italy and the old versions also say TOP BAR. The fit feels the exact same, but I am not sure I like the lens darkness. Time will tell if build and material quality are the same.
See pics of differences.
Photo 1: Blue lenses are the Made in China version.
Photo 2: The darker are the Made in China version. You can see the delamination of my old pair in the bottom part of the lens.
Photo 3: Writing is exact same, except new version don't say "TOP BAR".
Photo 4: Writing is exact same except China vs Italy.
Now there is a lot of discussion about where these are made - Italy vs China and the quality. After doing the research and looking at the product, I don't think there is any different at all as the same manifacturing company makes them whether made in Italy or China. The craftsmanship, materials, detail and quality are virtually the same. The ones that say: Made in China, are not necessarily fake. Even Rayban has stated that this model as are several of their other models made in China. The seller I got these from via Amazon sold me authentic Raybans.
I am extremely pleased with these shades and am thinking of getting another pair as a back up. Good luck on your purchase.
The spring hinges are nice, the glass is top notch and the look is awesome.
Unfortunately I have a large head ( US 7 3/4 hat size) and in conjunction with the shape of my face I could not find a way to seat these glasses and have them block the desired amount of light from the top without having the bottom of the glass make contact with my cheeks. pretty much full coverage with pretty much any other face shape shouldn't be a problem but I am very saddened that this style just doesn't work for me. Despite this I did wear them for a couple of days (adjusted several times) and found them to be super comfortable and I think the vast majority of people will be quite happy with these.
