Randolph Engineering, Inc. an iconic heritage eyewear brand proudly supplying American-made Aviators to the U.S. Military since 1978, has launched a Special Edition Military Aviator Collection that includes military-specification accessories never available before to the public.
For over 40 years, Our HGU-4/P Aviators have been built to the strict guidelines of MIL-S-25948J standards, says Randolph CEO, Peter Waskiewicz, though our mil-spec Aviator frames have always been available to our consumers, the authentic military case was never released to civilians until now.
The Special Edition Military Collection features 12 SKUs of classic Aviator sunglasses in their most popular finishes, Matte Chrome and 23K Gold with the option of polarised and non-polarised SkyTec™ Glass iconic American Gray lenses. Each frame comes in three different sizes that include small (52mm), regular (55mm), and large (58mm) for the perfect fit. With each frame, you will receive an authentic, embossed military-issued case that features U.S. Military specification information, custom Randolph dog tag keychain, a military-inspired cleaning cloth and a historical informational insert.
Today, we’re still handcrafting each pair of sunglasses to military standard in our factory, just outside of Boston, MA, says Sarah Fawle, Chief Marketing Officer at Randolph. We’ve even gained recognition from the White House who recently gifted custom military-style Randolph frames to noteworthy guests.
The Special Edition commemorates four decades of integrity, dedication, and service of the family-owned and operated factory. Randolph is proud to offer the authentic case and other unique military-inspired accessories along with its collection to be cherished and passed down from generation to generation as the Military-issued frames and cases have before.
