When you sell sunglasses, etc., especially at a discount, a popular question is always going to be if the items are authentic, fake, or knock-offs. To answer that question…
Let’s take a closer look at their recent feedback history. Amazon buyers have a really good way of weeding out the good sellers from the bad. If an item even SLIGHTLY looks like it might be a counterfeit or knock-off, they will leave you bad feedback. And any and all flaws will usually be reflected in a seller’s feedback. With that being said, over the past 12 months, International Sunglass Center has received about 500 positive feedback ratings, compared to just 0% negative feedback comments. With that sort of lop-sided ratio, it definitely appears as though International Sunglass Center is an honestly run business, selling authentic merchandise.
All items are guaranteed to be 100% authentic, and come with all the manufacturer paper work, in their original authentic boxes as provided by the manufacturers.
There isn’t too much information available for International Sunglass Center. You won’t find an International Sunglass Center website. The bulk of the information available is in their Amazon seller profile.
The reason for this is either they are a well known brand selling on Amazon using another name, or they are a mom and pop operation, without a registered dba. It’s not really an issue either way, just an explanation for the lack of information available
Some More Thoughts
If you do a google search for International Sunglass Center, you’ll find some people asking if Frames Spot is selling fake sunglasses
How can you really tell? Let’s take a quick look.
The first place to start is obviously their feedback. As mentioned above, if they sell fakes or counterfeits, the feedback will usually say so. They have a current lifetime feedback score of 2,668 positive ratings on Amazon, with a 4% defect rate, so they’re most likely legit.
The second obvious place to look at is their pricing. When a store is selling fakes, their prices will be super low – just too good to be true. For example, these Persol PO3108S Typewriter Edition Unisex Sunglasses usually sell online for between $150-180, depending on the store.
Given their pricing for these glasses, they’re definitely not a suspect for ridiculously low pricing. With the $150-180 range, if these were priced for say under $100, that should be an obvious red flag. Every seller decides how much profit they want to make per sale, but the manufacturer almost always sets a price floor, known as a minimum advertised price (map). Which is why you’ll find that any given pair of sunglasses just don’t fall below a certain price.
So…if you aren’t buying the glasses from the manufacturer, you do have to abide by the map pricing. Which explains why you’ll see fake sunglasses being sold for well under the average selling price.
Regardless of where you purchase your sunglasses, ultimately you’ll have to personally look at them to really tell. Here are a few things to look for.
Most eye wear brands continually makes minor changes to their products to stay a step ahead of counterfeiters. This level of protection not only helps you in spotting authentic merchandise, it also makes it more expensive for knock-offs to be produced.
I was discussing Persol sunglasses above, so let’s keep going with Persol.
With Persol glasses you’ll find several of these features prominently on the lenses, and the frame itself.
The lenses should have “Persol” etched directly on the frames, like this:
The “Persol arrow” will be made of metal, and sit flush with the frame. Also, since the hinge splits the arrow in half, both halves will line up evenly. Something like this:
The left arm of the sunglasses will contain serial numbers, and sizing information like below. The barcodes on the package should contain the same information:
Within the package contents, you will also find a soft cleaning cloth, as well as Persol guarantee certificate. The majority of fake Persol sunglasses will not contain these two items.
Looking at the specifics listed above, you should be able to tell if they’re real or not. If you still can’t tell, just take them to a local store selling sunglasses. They will be able to tell you either way.
