    I was recently watching an auction on eBay for a pair of Holbrooks in Ghost (frosted clear frames) with ruby iridiums, then the auction ended early. I didn't have a chance to contact the seller with questions. All I know is the story the seller wrote about them being rare colorways available in SGH only. I not by any means an expert in Holbrooks, but these looked legit and I really liked the frame and lens combo. Does anyone know if these are legit? I can't find any other examples on eBay or through searches.

    Btw, since they were supposedly purchased from SGH, there was no original box, bag or papers. But the seller was offering a custom Oakley box and red baggie from another pair in his collection.

    Hey bud, these matte clear/ruby holbrooks are definitely the SGH exclusive. They were only available in store so I don't think you could even order them off the SGH website. They have been pretty hard to find, but are definitely legit!

    Nice, thanks for the link! SGH is funny in the sense they put stuff on sale and then they can never track the pairs for sale in their computers. For like 6 months they had plasma/ice juliets on sale for $149.99 and it was "in-store" only and none of the stores even carried them. I guess you'd just have to get lucky and find it in a store!

    Very nice pair, but I can't wear the Holbrooks, they look ridiculous on me.

    @jive - thanks for the confirmation on these, now I want them! LOL

    @echav23 - cool, thanks for the link! Those are the ones!

    @nerd - LOL! Yup, i just happened across the auction, started watching it and a half a day later it was ended. I like how the seller wrote his entire adventure as his selling point, hehehe. Now I'm on the hunt for another pair! Too bad its only at SGH though, they suck :sad:.

    @Peeza - Damn! Lucky bastard! How long did it take you to find those?
