    hi,

    Your sentence is almost correct.

    The correct sentence is the following: I have a pair of brown glasses.

    Re: glasses

    Beware though; if you mean sun-glasses, 'brown' is the wrong word. 'I have [a pair of] brown glasses' means 'My glasses, whose lenses may be transparent, have brown frames'.
