Yep that's an actual pic I took, it's probably just the lighting as to why the whiskers seem to stand out so much. My hubby has a pair of these though and he loves them, they look good on. I think just the flash on the camera lights up the white tones more. They are authentic - I sell store overstock items so everything is the real deal. I had a stock photo up from the A&F website but A&F threatened my Ebay life and made me take it down.
It stinks because I had better sales with the stock photos, and mine don't come out as well, and tons of other sellers use stock photos with no consequences, but I complied because I don't want them trying to shut me down.
