Are These Coach Sunglasses More Expensive Online?

My husband and I went to a Coach boutique last weekend to pick up some sunglasses he had been wanting. Afterwards, I went to Coach.com just to see if there was a product listing for the sunglasses. There is a product listing for them except it has a more expensive price tag. So, are Coach sunglasses more expensive online than they are in stores.

The pair of sunglasses my husband got was the Tag Temple Pilot Polarized Sunglasses in gold that retailed for $195 and cost us a little over $200 after tax.  The online listing for these sunglasses is priced at $235 and they’ll cost you a little over $250.

Back in April, I purchased a Mini Skinny from Coach for Mother’s Day and it retailed for $45 both online and in stores.

I’m also pretty sure that most of the brand’s other products have the same price both online and in stores. So, why are these sunglasses more expensive online?

I called customer service and the representative said the sunglasses have always retailed for $235. A sales associate at a boutique in New York on Madison Ave (not the boutique I purchased them from) also said they cost $235.

After looking at my receipt, it seems as if the sales associate charged me for a different pair. The receipt shows the name of the sunglasses, the style number, and the color.

My husband got the Tag Temple Pilot Polarized Sunglasses in gold but I was charged for was the Tag Temple Pilot Sunglasses in “Antique Brass”. The style number of gold pair is LP618 and the style number of the pair I was charged for is L618.

Not only is the color of the sunglasses different, but the one I was charged for isn’t polarized like the ones I got. The polarized sunglasses are also the only ones that come in gold.

I think I know why they charged me for a different pair, though.

Although, the pair my husband got is the Tag Temple Pilot Polarized Sunglasses in Gold, the style number on the sunglasses themselves is L618, not LP618. So, it basically has the style number of the pair that isn’t polarized even though they are polarized, as one of the lenses says “polarized” next to some branding.

Coach sunglasses aren’t more expensive online than they are in stores. My husband just got a pair of Tag Temple Pilot Polarized Sunglasses in Gold that has the style number of the Tag Temple Pilot Sunglasses in Antique Brass and was charged the price of those sunglasses.
