  • Handcrafted in the USA in 200+ steps, using only the finest components
  • Signature bayonet temples designed for pilot use
  • Military-issued: HGU4/P, MIL-S-25948
  • Jewelry-quality finishes coated for durability and scratch resistance
  • Warrantied for life against manufacturer defects
  • Adjustable cushioned silicone nose pads
  • Includes a protective case

PRECISION-BUILT TO MILITARY STANDARDS SINCE 1982

 

With a tireless work ethic and endless determination, our founders built Randolph into an elite eyewear manufacturer. In 1982, Randolph won a contract to produce the standard, uniform-issue military-spec aviator sunglasses for the U.S. Air Force, a contract we proudly hold to this day.

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.

23K GOLD AND OTHER PREMIUM FINISHES

 

Jewelry-quality finishes aren’t just stylish. They’re also extremely tough—applied at up to 5 times the industry standard and electroplated for maximum durability and scratch-resistance.

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!

SIGNATURE TEMPLES

 

Our signature bayonet temples were designed to fit comfortably under a pilot’s headgear.

WHAT’S INCLUDED

All frames come with a case and Lifetime Warranty certificate.

Protective Case


Leather pebble grain case with an inner pocket

  1. 5 out of 5 Excellent

    My first experience with these excellent glasses was as an issue item when in the Air Force. Now retired, I found the source and bought frames for my reading glasses. I will soon be purchasing another pair as sun glasses. Very high quality and I recommend them.

  4. 5 out of 5 Best Choice

    I have been wearing the Aviator Frame since 2002 and have had no problems with them. The first pair was for sunglasses only, the second and third pair have been for prescription wear and computer glasses. I have been completely satisfied with customer service, the quality, and wear ability of the frames. I would definitely recommend these to others.

  5. 5 out of 5 Made In The US!

    The frames are good looking and light weight. The case the frames came with is nice. The only thing that could make the purchase experience better is that the frames came with the maintenance kit and cleaning cloth. Other that that, I am very happy with my frames. Keeping in the USA.

  6. 5 out of 5 Aviator Frame

    I am just ordering my fifth Randolph Aviator and have been wearing my prescription lens in them since 1996. I gifted one to my elder brother, himself a retired Naval officer. These are the most near perfect and the most comfortable frames I have ever worn. They have seen my through my service and I continue to wear them. There is nothing which even comes remotely close to them. It is precision instrument and crafted with the needs of a soldier in mind.

  9. 5 out of 5 Highly Recommeded

    While I realize that Randolph Engineering has taken over this frame design and manufacturing, I have worn these frames for the last 41 years! They are by far, the lightest and most comfortable frames available! The quality from Randolph is impeccable! I can not say enough about them.

    Highly Recommeded
