    Question Dior sunglasses poor quality.

    Hi Everyone,

    I bought a pair of Dior Diorly 1 sunglasses for a friend whose birthday is coming up. We recently went on a trip together and she dropped her Swarovski-adorned sunglasses, chipping them, so I thought getting her a pair of Dior sunglasses that look similar to what she had before would be a good idea.

    The pair I bought, when I took it out to inspect, seemed of questionable quality.

    The face of the lens is of great quality, but the edges of the lens had a lot of burr marks / ridges from the smoothing process. Being a rimless pair, the many smooth ridges on the side really show.

    Also, the plastic part of the legs show impurities in them and small bubbles in the plastic casting.

    Anyone know if maybe I got scammed? This was bought online for $120.

    I would've expected much better quality from Dior.

    Thanks in advance for your expertise!

    P.S. The Dior case is also poorly made, with few little stubs of bare thread ends on the stitching and a zipper that's much too tight.


    The edge of the lens is pretty roughly polished.

    Again, edge of lens is not smooth.

    Air bubble inside transparent plastic in leg.

    Dior logo paint seems bit cheap.

    Zipper tie not cut cleanly.

    Stitching a little frayed, showing 'lint.'

    Bare thread ends showing. Material edge also not what I expected from Dior.

    I am really sorry to hear that. Where online did you purchase them?

    eBay, haha. They were $473 retail but I did "Buy It Now" for $112. The seller has really good feedback, though.

    So, do you think they're fake?

    P.S. My profile pic defaulted to a girl, but I'm pretty sure I'm a guy, even after browsing Dior and L-V catalogues for days. Haha.

    Can you try posting some pictures of the actual item? Maybe they are authentic but they're factory items.

    Great idea!

    What's the difference between factory items and retail items?

    Thanks ZombieGirl and VivaLaJuicy!!!

    Some of the defected sunglasses which could not pass the quality check may be sent to small retail stores by "different channels" and sold at lower price. That is factory items.

    Hello,
    I won a pair of CARTIER PANTHER SUNGLASSES on ebay.... I paid about AU$250 for them....

    I noticed the packing was not perfect..... THEY WERE FAKE!
    The glasses themselves were ALMOST perfect - almost as they were not 100% perfect.... I would say 90% perfect - being a wee bit light and cheap....

    The packaging was the give away....

    I think many dodgy sellers have moved away from Watches and Handbags and into the high end designer accessories..... Glasses are a perfect example.

    I am not a dior expert - personally I don't think they are good enough... I prefer next level up in my designer stuff - ie. LV, Cartier, Hermes......

    IF you paid via paypal.... lodge a dispute.
