    I have both, and it really depends on what I am doing. I prefer the black for everyday use. The tortoise frames don't go with everything, so I just don't wear them as much.

    I have it all as well, just depends on your mood i guess. Matte black doesnt show as much wear as polished black just a fyi

    Reason why I'm asking is, I'm torn between these two. As Deke736 mentioned, black goes with everything, but what I like about the tortoise is when you wear them, it looks black, but the tortoise shows at some angles.

    But I like the gold emblem against the Matte Black!

    I actually just bought matte black Holbrook's yesterday! I had them custom built with polarized black iridium lenses. I like them a lot. But with a classic style frame like these, I think the tortoise would look good too.

    I'm thinking of getting the tortoise one and buying some after market black lenses. Probably a good median between black and tortoise

    I would stick with OEM Oakley lenses. No other lenses can compare to Oakley's clarity. They are perfect.

    Can never go wrong with black frames. That being said, I have the Tortoise / 24k SW and I think they are the best of the SW Holbrooks not including the Goldbrook. The gold icons and the 24k lenses look awesome with the tortoise frame. Just get a pair of Tortoise also and solve all of your problems.
