Sportsman in Matte Black with Gray Glass 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.

  1. 5 out of 5 indestructable and the best sunglasses I have ever had

    My wife inadvertently backed our car over my sportsman in its case. My beloved glasses were bent perfectly flat but not broken. The glass lenses were of course shattered. I sent them in for repairs and they came back like new. They were recently stolen so I am ordering a new pair. These are for life!

  4. 5 out of 5 The Best Available!

    I've bought four of these sunglasses for personal use and as gifts. The fit and comfort are superior to any other brand I've owned. If you want military authenticity, the Gun Metal frames are very close in color to the steel framed WWII Army Air Corp sunglasses.

  5. 5 out of 5 Awsome glasses!

    Perfect vision, color, balance
    I had to bend a little part of the frame that goes around my ear to eliminate movement of the glasses back and forth, now they fit perfect.
    Expensive? yes, but compared to the high end glasses around, not so much. I got the polarized gold plated model of Sportsman.
    Another factor that made me buy them-MADE IN USA

    Awsome glasses!

  6. 5 out of 5 Highest Recommendation

    Made proudly with artisan-like excellence in the USA. Love it and love them. Just bought a pair for my father in law. Their competitors can only wish to be so highly regarded. Keep up the great work.

  7. 5 out of 5 Great quality and clarity

    Completely happy with first ever purchase. I want to order a second pair in a new style and color and another pair for my husband. The clarity is awesome and very natural looking even though the lenses appear very dark. Recommended!

  10. 5 out of 5 Class, Quality and Style

    Given the geographical limitation was unable to even try them on, however knew from research these would be quality. Have to thank the Randolph team for providing a great service and some top notch Aviators which would make most pilots envious. Thank you

  12. 5 out of 5 Randolph never dissappoints!

    I have had a pair of matte silver Aviators for about a year now and wear them daily. I have been wanting a pair of the 61mm 23k Sportsman's since and finally splurged. Same great, rock solid, quality with one helluva an elegant look. These glasses are perfect on a long Rocky Mountain hike or at the country club. They were delivered when I was out of town and my wife called to tell me that they, "look like Cartier's". She'll have a pair of Amelia's in her Christmas stocking this year.

  13. 5 out of 5 Perfect sunglasses

    These sunglasses look great and that's nice but what I most love about them is their durable build and the awesome clarity they provide. Since receiving them in the mail I have worn them outside for extended periods of time while engaging in activities ranging from hiking with my dog to playing non-contact lacrosse with friends. Regardless of the activity, they have proven to be the perfect pair for the occasion. On top of the incredibly high quality product, the customer service and warranty Randolph provides is reassuring. The Concorde frames are the only other pair of sunglasses on the planet I might suggest over these and I would highly recommend you just get pairs of both.

    Perfect sunglasses

  14. 5 out of 5 Great Glasses for active lifestyle

    These glasses are excellent!! They are constructed very well, and are sturdy and wearable. I bought the 61mm size, I was a bit surprized at how big they are, but they fit well, are comfortable, and quite sturdy. Thanks for making a fantastic pair of glasses!!!

  15. 5 out of 5 Best Sunglasses I've Owned

    I used to only wear Ray-Ban's until I recently read about these glasses in Overland Journal. Unfortunately no sellers in proximity so I bought a pair online hoping for the best and I am very pleased … these are my new favorites.
