I just got my holbrooks. Is it really plastic all the way? I mean even the point where you fold the arms of your sunglasses it's also plastic? Coz the usual one has metals in it. Thanks!!!

I meant the usual sunglasses but not the oakley. :)

Hey Sumie,

NO metal hinge. This is actually a good thing as metal hinges embedded in a plastic frame causes a weak point. Opening and closing the frame puts stress on those anchor points. Over time, this will cause these areas to wear out.
