ARCHER

With sleek metal styling and the DNA of Randolph’s classic Aviator, the Archer embodies contemporary masculine cool. Inspired by ballooning pioneer Samuel Archer King, whose skillful aeronautics led the way in the largest balloon voyages of his time, the Archer is all about attitude and innovation. Wrapped lenses cover a larger range of the face than our classic Aviator styles, preventing as much light as possible from entering the eye.

  • Handcrafted in the USA in 200+ steps, using only the finest components
  • With Lite Lens™ technology—15% lighter frames made from a hypoallergenic macromolecule that couples optical clarity with lightweight durability
  • Anti-reflective and anti-glare gradient lens options smoothly transition from top to bottom, providing refuge from harsh overhead sunlight while allowing light through the bottom half of the lens
  • Mazzucchelli temple tips offer that final touch of perfection—yet another example of Randolph’s attention to detail
  • Jewelry-quality finishes coated for durability and scratch resistance
  • Adjustable cushioned silicone nose pads
  • 100% UVA/UVB protection
  • Warrantied for life on solder joints
  • Includes a case, microfiber cleaning cloth, and maintenance kit

GUARANTEED FOR LIFE

 

Ever heard of a sunglass company guaranteeing its frames for life? Well, we do. Our frames are built to such high specifications that we stand by each pair for as long as you own them.

SkyTec™ LENS TECHNOLOGY

The U.S. military demands the best. You should too.

 

Developed with military aviation in mind to safeguard a pilot’s most important asset—his vision.
Each lens is engineered to precise optical and durability standards, with 100% UVA/UVB protection.

WEATHERPROOF

Designed to withstand the damaging effects of weathering

SCRATCH RESISTANT

Plated at up to 5x the industry standard for precision and durability

DROP BALL TESTED

Tested for impact resistance by ¼-inch steel ball drop from three feet away

MADE IN AMERICA. COMMITTED TO AMERICAN JOBS

 

Throughout Randolph’s history, our family-owned New England factory has honored its commitment to American jobs and manufacturing—even as other sunglass companies began moving their operations offshore in the 1980s. We are proud to be the only remaining metal eyewear manufacturer in the USA.

HANDMADE AND DETAIL-DRIVEN

 

It takes craftsmen in our Randolph, Massachusetts factory over five weeks to build a single pair of Randolph glasses. More than 200 steps go into making each and every frame—and most of the work is done by hand.

STAY-SNUG SCREWS


Our stainless steel screws have been specially-designed to have a flared tip that prevents them from coming out, ensuring a perfect fit for years of wear.

CUSTOM SOLDER (saw-der) FLUX


At Randolph, we even make our own solder flux (this is the machine that solders the glasses together). This, in combination with a 56% silver filler, provides unequaled joint strength and integrity.

SPECIAL METAL ALLOYS


We scour the world for the best components, including metal alloys with tight molecular structure, to prevent rust and oxidation and satisfy our drive for superior quality.

COMFORT AND THOUGHT ENGINEERED INTO EVERY FEATURE


Nose pads self-adjust for fit and comfort, while smooth monoblock hinges mean no sharp corners to snag clothing. That’s a relief!

WHAT’S INCLUDED

All frames come with a case, microfiber cleaning cloth, maintenance tool kit (screw driver, extra nose pads, and screws) and Lifetime Warranty certificate.

Maintenance Tool Kit


Everything you need to maintain your glasses, including a sunglass-size screwdriver, screws, and extra nose pads

Protective Case


Leather pebble grain case with an inner pocket to hold your maintenance kit

Cleaning Cloth


Microfiber cloth to keep your glasses looking like new

  3. 5 out of 5 Outstanding glasses

    I own a pair of standard RE Aviators that I've worn for a couple of years now. I really liked the look of the new Archer sunglasses, particularly that the lenses were a bit wider than the standard Aviators. Bought a pair about a month ago and couldn't be happier with them. Solidly made like all RE glasses so I don't have to worry about them breaking in hostile climates.

    Lenses are awesome – got polarized, of course. Huge reduction in glare while driving. All in all, fabulous sunglasses and I'd recommend them to anyone looking for top quality eyewear. Well done, Randolph folks.

    Outstanding glasses

  6. 5 out of 5 favorite sunglasses

    These sunglasses are the real deal. they scream "i am a man" when u wear them. i chose the bronze oxide frames with gray polarized lenses. it is a terrific combination. i own quite a few pairs of sunglasses and these are my favorites. i have a normal size head i would say and the 59mm fit perfectly. also noticed how light they are. you can barely feel them on your face. i also own a pair of the RE aviators and my next purchase will be a pair of Concordes

  10. 5 out of 5 Great Look and fit

    I have been looking for a great pair of sunglasses for a while now and I found them with the Archer. I have an round face and most "aviator" type glasses either look really bad on me are way too big for my liking. The Archers have just the right "aviator" look but are not to big and fit my face perfectly.

    The construction is top quality. The materials, finish and attention to details are exceptional. The polarized lenses are fantastic The best part is they are made in the USA.

    In addition, I ordered the 59's but they were too small for my face. Since I live near the factory I dropped in and they replaced them on the spat with the 63's. The team at the office was fantastic and treated like a friend and not just a generic customer from off the street!

    I am a Randolph customer for life now!

    Great Look and fit
