What do you prefer and why?
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.
The only pic I've got is this one of my ugly mug wearing them!
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.
