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.

Drop Ball Tested

Tested for impact resistance with

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.

  3. 5 out of 5 Simply Excellent

    There isn't much more to say about this particular pair of sunglasses, or really any of Randolph's products in general. These are built to exemplary quality standards, here in the USA, and priced reasonably to boot. I cannot fathom why anyone would bother with another pair of sunglasses, and I've had them all: Oakley, Ray-Ban, Maui Jim, Persol, etc. Once you go RE, you won't go back.

    Simply Excellent

  4. 5 out of 5 Excellent Quality. Perfect Fit.

    Like previous RE aviators I've had, these are really well made, light but substantial. Grey polarized lenses are crisp and optically so clear. These are great!

    Excellent Quality. Perfect Fit.

  5. 5 out of 5 Great product

    Bought the Archer sunglasses Spring, '15. Sunglasses were back ordered, so it took a bit longer than I would have liked, but well worth it. This is my first pair of Randolph eye wear, and I'm quite impressed. 10/10 would buy again.

    Great product
