    Help identifying Ray-ban model?

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help me identify a model of Ray-ban sunglasses? I accidentally lost my boyfriend's beloved sunglasses, which he purchased overseas when he was in Tokyo. I'm trying to find out the model number so that I can see if any of the stores in Toronto that could order them in (as I've never seen them, or anything similar, on store shelves here).

    I've attached two pictures (one of the front, one of the side), but I can also offer a bit of a description:

    - The frame is white plastic,
    - The arm of the frame has a sort of engraved/carved into the plastic "Ray-Ban" in something resembling a hand-written font.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    I already looked at their website, and the same model are not on it, hence why I asked here. I've looked for hours on end without being able to find the same one, and I figured someone here might know and be able to help me. The arm has a specific cut to it that is not the same as the ones on the website (either for USA, Canada, UK, or even Japan). Their Japan website has more models listed on it, so I imagine it is probably one that is not sold in North America. Perhaps it comes from an older line?

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    If it is not in their current catalog there is a very good chance that it has been discontinued. I would suggest, if that is the case, that you contact the Rayban customer service department by mail, with the photo's you have and ask them to do a warehouse search for the product. Chances are slim but you never can tell.

    Ebay is your friend. I don't see anything in white other than Wayfarers or aviator style suns right now, but since every item that exists in civilization will show up there eventually, it wouldn't hurt to check back periodically if the manufacturer can't help you.

    Definitely looks like a fake. The size and location of the brand on the lens is wrong, and they always have the brand on the temple on any plastic/zyl.
