Why Randolph Engineering?

Family owned and operated for three generations, we still proudly supply aviator sunglasses to the US military today. Each pair of Randolphs are rooted in the same sense of style, strength, spirit and quality as when we started.

Our handcrafted process takes over 200 steps to cut, mold, twist, plate, polish and perfect, and the time of over 50 experts. After 45 years, we’re still handcrafting our eyewear to military standard specifications in our factory, just outside of Boston, MA.

Military contracted since 1978, we meet the demands of the world’s toughest critics: the US Department of Defense, commercial pilots, naval aviators, astronauts and now you.


Pick them up. Put them on. Feel the difference.

Authentic aviators, precision engineered for durability and superior optics with SkyTec™ Lens Technology.
