    BNIB = Brand New In box
    LNIB = Like New In Box
    MPH = Mr Potato Head, it is the term given to pairs that were sold at discount prices that were pieced together with remaining parts at headquarters.
    SGH = Sunglass Hut

    A lot of frames have been turned into acronyms as well. Holbrook to HB, racing jacket to RJ. Lenses as well, for instance black iridium polarized is BIP.
