I've bought glasses from retail stores and I've owned RayBan's and Arnette's (made by the same company) and Wayfarers are simply my favorite. I owned a pair of these before but unfortunately broke them right in the middle (totally my fault) and didn't want to dish out the full retail price for another pair. The price here is amazing. I was skeptical at first thinking it might be counterfeit, but after using it for close to a month now and seeing how the details on the glasses are exact matches to the original, I'm convinced that this is the real deal. I'm a 100% satisfied and these glasses are as stylish as they come!
