BORN FROM THE AMERICAN DREAM.


Former Royal Air Force navigator Jan Waszkiewicz and machinist Stanley Zaleski both immigrated to America with a few bucks and a dream: to build the world’s best sunglass.

In 1973, they opened the doors to their factory in a small town called Randolph, just outside of Boston, MA.

ENGINEERED TO MILITARY STANDARDS


With a background in engineering and some serious skills, they set out to build an eyewear company with their bare hands.

They built the machines that craft the sunglasses, and purpose-built a product for the world’s toughest critics: the US Department of Defense.

SOMETHING
TO BE PROUD OF


Our founders wanted to leave something behind in their memory. Something to be proud of.

Today, just outside of Boston, you’ll find the same machines, the same families and the same ethics, quietly building the world’s finest eyewear one pair at a time in an unexpected way. Randolph builds eyewear for anyone who expects better.


WHAT WE DO


At Randolph, we create sunglasses that are purposefully engineered and handcrafted to perform at the highest level. For over 40 years we’ve provided the US military with the world’s best Aviators. And that’s just the beginning.

HOW WE DO IT


Our family-owned and operated factory in Randolph, Massachusetts USA sets the standard for responsible manufacturing. Each frame is guaranteed for life and is made by hand in 200 steps to create our signature style and comfort. A labor of love.

WHY WE DO IT


We’re inspired by human resilience and dedication. The fighting spirit of our founders to do the right thing even in the face of adversity. We believe independence is worth fighting for. And we believe customers deserve a choice. Never compromise.

BUILT TO MILITARY STANDARDS.
ENGINEERED FOR AVIATION.


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.

ENGINEERED FROM THE GROUND UP


With a background in engineering and some serious hand skills, they built a proprietary solder machine unlike any other. They then crafted a 6 week, 200-step process.

BUILT TO LAST A LIFETIME. OR TWO.


They created nearly indestructible frame joints, all with materials sourced in the U.S. In 1973, they opened the doors to their factory in a small town called Randolph, just outside of Boston, MA.
