Edited by:"Bestard"Found 6th Sep 2017
***EDIT: Black ones for £79.42 and grey/green seem to have sold out, but grey/silver still available for £81.59.

***EDIT 2: Looks like they've restocked, all colours available again. Amended the price back to £79.42

These are polarized, bear that in mind when price comparing.
Normally sell for well over £100 elsewhere, and supposedly were £143 and then £110 on this same companies site previously.
I think they are about £143 on the official Ray-Ban site.

They have a few colour choices.
I personally bought the £81.59 ones (grey / green).

I did the polarised authenticity check against my computer screen to confirm genuine.

The company are authorised Ray-Ban sellers.
Their prices are amazing.
The glasses are not fake as evidenced by other deals on here and reviews elsewhere.

HOWEVER, I think their customer service is rubbish. They also lied about the free next day delivery. Ordered my pair on Thursday and they turned up today with a great big royal mail 48hour stamp/frank.
When I chased them the other day, I was lied to by their customer services about the whereabouts of my purchase.
They don't even email you a confirmation of your purchase.
I note similar sentiment from other reviewers on other sites.

All in all, if you can put up with the poor customer service, this is a very good price for decent looking genuine Ray Ban polarized sun glasses.

Oh and it's supposed to be like 10% TCB, but mine tracked for around 7% - more evidence of the awfulness of this companies service.
Still, I got a decent deal so am happy.

All Ray-Bans are overpriced for sure.
I wouldn't pay anywhere near the 'normal' price for these.

The copies look exactly the same and are a fraction of the price. It's a no from me :-)

Yup, and you can take them to an optician to check if they have the correct coating. Just dont buy the cheapest lookalike. There are some great ones for £15

I bought a pair of knock off Ray-Ban aviators from abroad for about £7.
They were really rather bad. However, they weren't 11 times as bad as these ones though.
I guess there is a middle ground somewhere between cheap & nasty and decent, but I'm yet to find it.
For now, I'm happy with these new sunglasses I got today and would recommend the grey frames with green lenses.
Heat from me - just bought a pair
They are pretty decent looking and a good price for the UK.
Hot from me too nice find
Is China fake product... if you value your eyesight then is up to you

Hot from me - tried for the 10% quidco and the 10% referall as its my first time purchasing from them.

Its v simple, if they dont have UV lenses your pupils burn. When wearing sunglasses your pupils widen, without UV to protect the widened pupils your get in trouble. which isnt worth it for buying cheap knock off specs that break way more easily anyway, plus you can spot knock offs a mile off. You get what you pay for.
Bought these same ones last year from red hot sunglasses for the same price. Customer service has been great. Next day delivery too.

however around 3 weeks ago they developed a crack on the right lense where the screw holds it ontothe frame.

emailed red hot sunglasses and let them know, they asked for photos and then asked me to return the sunglasses to them (return cost at their expense), they then emailed me back around a week later and said that ray ban have confirmed this was a manufacturing issue and that a new pair was being dispatched, the next day I got a brand new pair.

cannot fault this company at all and wouldn't hesitate to use them again. 10/10 for customer service.

Also they are based only around 10 miles from where I live too.

I'm glad they were so professional with you.
Honestly, if the price wasn't so good, I'd be fuming at their amateur efforts and outright lies with me.

Also, why am I putting people off this deal?

How do you know they sell fakes?
Anyone else think these look a bit Neo from the Matrixy?
Nice price. I purchased some for a family member over a year ago through this company. When they dropped them and cracked a lens, optician was able to verify they were the genuine article and were able to order a replacement lens. (Which was £34 FYI). Safe to buy.

I was going to say google for links yourself, but presume you're blind from wearing knock off sunglasses

home.bt.com/lif…967

First link that popped up from a quick google. My wife also works in a Hospital ophthalmology clinic and so have heard plenty of stories about the results of not protecting your eyes from sun exposure. It appears the message about skin has somewhat got through but people have no clue about eyes

So the copies may look the same, but that ain't gonna be much use if one day they contribute to you not being able to see your sunglasses in the first place.

Lots of crap posted on this site, but yours is one of the most stupid, ignorant and careless!

By all means buy cheap sunglasses from a reputable retailer. Clearly it doesn't cost anywhere near this price to make a decent set of sunglasses and you are paying for the brand.

But to fire your own question back to you, can you provide any links that the copies protect your eyes in the same way the originals do? No you can't! Because as with everything knock off there are no standards, no reputable testing, etc, etc. Even if you get them tested by an optician (which I'm sure someone that makes such a stupid remark doesnt) that only tells you they are blocking UV light at that specific point in time. You have no idea how durable the coating is. Remember unlike a reputable brand (wether that be Boots or Ray Ban) those selling fakes have no reputation to protect and no concerns about recourse from the buyer. Do you think they give a toss if the correct coating is used for type/shape of lens, do you think they test its durability, etc etc? No, they knock them out as cheap as possible for idiots like you!

No they aren't. Some things I agree they just look bad. Not with Sunny's I have't seen any that look any different from the originals. :-)
Good fakes cost a wee bit more than bad ones but are as good as the originals appearance wise.

I KNOW what the industry say. What I asked and still ask is point me to a link of ANYONE from anywhere in the world who lost their sight or had it badly effected by using dodgy Sunnies. :-)
Contrary to what you may be trying to infer I am no fool. Prove to me what you say is correct and I will apologise. When I say prove I mean actual proof of harm, not what could possibly happen if I wear these every day and stare at the sun for 10 hours.

Can you prove they are safe? Nope you can't.

Can you provide proof that dodgy sunny's all block UV light to the levels claimed? No you can't.

You're the one making claims out of left field, so how about you prove them? Personally I prefer to trust qualified professionals, not the "industry" as you put it, but doctors that have zero incentive in selling me glasses or bolstering their sales:

willadamstreatmentcentre.nhs.uk/new…on/

Or I guess people could trust a cheapskate, that needs to have designer sunny's but can't stump up for them.

There's some really remarkable intellect at work there I want to look like I can afford expensive sunny's, so I'll forego cheap glasses from reputable retailers and persuade myself and everyone else that will listen that the fakers give a shit what I put on my eyes

Anyway, as you likely know there is no way to provide what you ask. You're false test is akin to people claiming they know someone that smoked 20 a day and lived to 100, hence fags must be safe. Or that they used sun beds all their life so they must be safe.

Just like smoking, exposure to the sun increases ones risks of developing particular forms of cancer and other damage. With smoking people are ready to accept it's quite likely smoking is the reason they developed lung cancer for example ( even though it can't ever be proved as the definitive cause in a particular instance). Who''s going to say "ah yes I developed cataracts because I used to wear fake Ray Bans"? No one.

But in all these cases the research and mechanism of damage is clear. And as with almost all carcinogens the level of risk is increased by the level of exposure.

UVA < 400nm causes damage to our tissue. If you have a dark tint your pupil will dilate to let more light in, providing a bigger window to allow UV in than if you had no sunglasses on. Thus you are increasing the risk of damage to your eyes with tinted glasses that don't block UV<400nm. That means a greater chance of cancer/cataracts/etc. You are actively overriding the natural mechanism your eyes have to protect themselves. You're an inconsiderate idiot for suggesting otherwise.

Ha ha I am no cheapskate. I am sitting here writing this with a REAL Rolex on my wrist. I wouldn't dream of wearing a copy.
Some things are very easy to replicate (Like Sunglasses) not much to them at all , and for you to try and convince me otherwise is hilarious. They make them in China! Copies probably come from the same factories.

And to end this. You said a lot but provided no proof. Good day to you sir. :-)
