    I aim to produce threads that chronicle official production eyewear items that were given exclusivity to various countries. Part 1 will begin with Japan as I have been motivated by the recent Murasaki Sports Holbrook. I have excluded 4 Ichiro Juliets and the Livestrong Frogskin that were also available in the USA, and I have omitted any Asian fit issue that had a configuration available in countries other than Japan. If anyone can provide additional information I am sure we can all benefit.

    Many people have long believed that the Juliet - Carbon - 24K 12-628 was a Japan exclusive, and I knew clairvoyant style that it would be mentioned after I initiated this thread. The fact is that it was available in the UK from July 2003 to August 2004 with a retail price of £235, and I purchased my own pair from Legends in Sept 03. The information I received is that the glass was a UK exclusive, and I am convinced enough to consider it as such, but it is hard to prove it did not retail in another country.

    the 12-628 juliet was a japan exclusive at one point. there is even a japanese oakley brochure that states that. as with many oakley exclusives it eventually became a wide release. for example the naomi south eventually landed in north America as well. iacon stores got some of the brown flores. jamaroqui thumps were in some o stores. a ichiro radar was available in vault stores. most sgh exclusives do get wider releases.

    Jawbone - Polished Black - Black & Light Grey 04-219J is available outside Japan, for example on the Oakley USA site. The Radar - Polished Black - Slate 24-326J is a new 2012 Japan exclusive holiday piece, hence I have added that pair to the list.
    If you were told by Atmos that there were 50 pairs each produced of the Jawbone & Frogskin then I guess that is sufficient to amend the list, the information I had was 100 of each, but I cannot remember where the details came from, maybe the '100' total was for both.

    These were also available at Vaults within the USA

    - Silver/Black Ghost Text - Slate (Path vented) 24-227 ICHIRO Away. Quantity 1000

    Hence the abundance of them on eBay for a while at a much reduced price.

    Yes you do have a point here, I can think of several SGH 'exclusives' that after time became available elsewhere, so with those pairs they lost their exclusivity as far as I can see. Other SGH pieces remained exclusive until they were discontinued and these examples remain the genuine article. I was not aware that N/South was available in the USA, perhaps this means then it was not a Japan exclusive, but it does depend on what happened with it, if for instance a few pairs were sold in a Vault store this does not take away exclusivity, since it is the nature of business that discontinued product is sold via that type of outlet, however, full scale availability over a protracted period of time with many pairs in many stores would alter exclusivity. Ichiro Radars in Vault stores to me does not change Japan exclusive status since that is a discontinued product sold after the main life of the release. Flores 1 was a Tokyo O Store issue so I am surprised to learn that this was retailed in the US, but the question here is how many Flores were sold in the US? 5? 10? 15? If 'about' 100 were made I would bet the vast number of those were sold in Japan, so if a few pairs 'leaked' I think you could consider it still a Japan exclusive.

    i bought my naomi souths from a stateside opd when they were first releases. for full price and that really hurt. i guess the brown flores would still be classified as a japan exclusive since the stateside stores got theirs as DE pieces rather than regular release pieces. they had the box and all content but they were classified as DE.
