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.

  • 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
  • 23k gold and other premium-quality finishes for durability & scratch resistance
  • Lifetime warranty on all frames
  • 100% UVA/UVB protection
  • Handcrafted in the USA in 200+ steps
  • Available in signature bayonet or standard temples
  • Military-issued since 1978
  • Self-adjusting cushioned nose pads
  • Includes leather case and cleaning cloth pouch

Archer in Dark Ruthenium with Blue Gradient Lite Lenses

Built To Military Standards

We wanted to make a difference. Leave a mark. Be proud of something. So in 1978, we joined forces with the U.S. military to produce the HGU-4/P Aviator for fighter pilots. Each Aviator is built to strict guidelines of MIL-S-25948 standards, a 20-page document detailing the most complex manufacturing specs around.

Guaranteed for a lifetime. Or two.

Built to a higher standard using the world’s finest materials, we stand by each pair of frames we make. So much so, that we offer a lifetime warranty. Take them with you around the world, and back again.

23K Gold and Other Premium Metals

The same precious metal finishes found on the world’s finest timepieces are layered on at up to 5x the industry standard.

Handmade and Detail-Driven

It takes our craftspeople over 6 weeks to build a single pair of Randolph glasses.
More than 200 steps go into making each frame—and most of these steps? –

Done by hand.

Metal Bending

Hand-cut and bent to flawlessly form each component.

Soldering

The bridge, hinges and other components are soldered by hand.

Tumbling

Porcelain and ceramic granules polish each frame to absolute perfection.

Signature Bayonet Temples Fit for Pilots,
Designed for Total Comfort

Our Iconic Bayonet temples were designed to slide easily under pilot headsets, helmets and other headgear. Which means pure comfort and ease. We also calculate the exact angle of the bend on the Skull temple to prevent headaches that may sometimes occur from undue temple pressure.

TRANSPORT IN STYLE

All frames come with a leather case and a microfiber cleaning cloth that doubles as a pouch.

  5. 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

  8. 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

  12. 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

  13. 5 out of 5 The best Sunglasses I've ever had

    This is the third set of RE's I've had and they just keep getting better. This new style works exceptionally well as they are incredibly light, with fantastic lenses and a gradient that works well with a business suit or jeans and a T. I'd like to see them with straight arms as an option. But other than that, I think these are prefect. The only downside is I left my pair at Disneyland and now I've got to find the cash for a new pair ! Better start saving 😉
