HOW TO SPOT FAKE/REPLICA LOUIS VUITTON EVIDENCE SUNGLASSES

Louis Vuitton Evidence sunglasses come in two fits: Western and Eastern. Eastern fit Evidences have a longer nose bridge and are better suited for those with lower nose bridges and/or smaller faces. They were more widely released in the eastern part of the world, such as Asia. Western fit Evidences have a model number that ends in “W” while Eastern fit Evidences have a model number that ends in “E.” Evidences were initially released with a price point of $675. As of 2013, they currently retail at $735.
