Oakley - Differentiating Genuine ones and Fake ones


Recommended Posts

Are you trying to say that there are alot of fake oakleys sold online or trying to ascertain whether the oakley sold online is genuine?

 

Online sales of oakley is popular because SG RRP of Oakley is a tad steep.

 

 

Yes bro. recently was browsing through the web. Came across a few sites that deal with Oakley's at very very cheap price. And they look exactly like the original. They even have the same name and models of those wel known originals like Straight-Jacket, Monster Dog, Fuel Cell etc.

Ahem... http://www.luxottica.com/en/activities/production/

Last sentence.

 

If Oakley is marketed by Luxottica, the acquisition would make no sense.

I buy over your company so that I can market it for you instead of expanding my portfolio. Please.....

 

Last sentence = "In addition, Luxottica utilizes third-party manufacturers to produce Oakley apparel, footwear, watches and certain accessories."

 

What's strange about that? Lux bought over Oakley in 2007. Why compete when you can buy over? They're monopolizing the market.

But Lux seems to be mainly an eyewear player. Oakley has other stuff like clothings, which I'll bet were also outsourced before the takeover.

So why not continue to outsource instead of trying to manufacture something outside your area of expertise?

That is the point of outsourcing isn't it?

if you mention Luxottica to any plain bloke on the street, they would sure to give you a HUH answer..

 

but if you mention Oakley, Ray Ban or wadever brand they carry, the same bloke will know what it is..

 

it actually is still on its own, just that it became a subsidiary of Luxottica.

Actually very easy to spot one.

Once you own a Oakley specs, you can spot a fake easily because the quality is really different one.

Get yourself familiar with the kind of models Oakley offers. Fake one mostly sell that few models only because the rest is very difficult to replicate.

      You’ve got your hands on the world’s best eyewear. Now take vision beyond the limit. Nanoclear™ Lens Cleaner + Hydrophobic is a complete kit that lets you clean your lenses and give them a specially engineered coating in one step. The coating prevents water from leaving streaks and sheens that can corrupt your vision, and it creates a smudge-resistant barrier that repels skin oils and lotions, so keeping your lenses clean will be a whole lot easier.
       
      Just run the marker tip across the entire lens surface, wait 30 seconds then buff it lightly with the included Microclear™ cloth. That’s all there is to it. The cleaning/coating solution won’t diminish the clarity of Oakley’s performance lenses, and it’s perfectly compatible with lenses that have our Iridium®. We formulated Nanoclear™ to be compatible with all lens and frame materials, so you can use it with any type of eyewear. Each kit is good for about 50 applications.
