2 tips on how to spot fake Persol sunglasses
To protect our eyes, we've put together two tips that will help you avoid buying fake and potentially harmful glasses.
1. Check the metal arrow
The most distinguishable feature that can show their authenticity is the metal arrow connecting the frame of the glasses with their arms. It should be in a straight, clean line with no gaps.
2. Check the arms
