Randolph Glasses

Randolph Sunglasses are back! After a short hiatus, the classic sunglasses collection returns, not with a new take, but with the same classics which made the brand so famous and iconic.

Randolph was co-created in 1972 by two engineers Jan Waszkiewicz and Stanley Zaleski. The ethos was then as is now “to focus on advanced engineering principles in the manufacturing of premium performance eye-wear”. Their designs caught the eye of the U.S Military in 1982 and they were instated as their principle supplier of eyewear and specialist vision products. The Randolph brand heritage is rooted in performance first and foremost, precise optical perfection is paramount, the quality … unsurpassed. Randolph is not a brand led by design fads or trends. A pair of Randolph Glasses will also last you a lifetime and never date.

It wasn’t long until civilians cottoned on to the stylish, meticulously handcrafted product and Randolph became a force to be reckoned with commercially as well as in the cock-pit, so whether you are in a dog fight in your F-18, cruising the riviera bathed in sunshine wearing loafers and a DB jacket or on set starring in a Hollywood masterpiece … Randolph keeps you cool under pressure.

It was in Hollywood where Randolph experienced another of its greatest triumphs. The now classic Randolph Aviator model was picked up and worn by the following luminaries in some of Hollywood’s greatest movies. Robert De Niro in Taxi Driver, Robert Duvall in Apocalypse Now and Johnny Depp in Once Upon a Time in Mexico.

The Randolph Engineering eyewear range consists of many iconic and classic designs, however the timeless Aviator is Randolph’s greatest asset and most unique design, with the patent also belonging to the brand.
