Massachusetts-based Randolph Engineering is a heritage eyewear brand that has been supplying American-made Aviators to the U.S. Military since 1978. Now, Randolph has launched a Special Edition Aviator Military Collection that includes military specification accessories never before available to the public. According to Peter Waskiewicz, CEO of Randolph, “For over 40 years, Our HGU-4/P Aviators have been built to the strict guidelines of MIL-S-25948J standards. Though our mil-spec Aviator frames have always been available to our consumers, the authentic military case was never released to civilians until now.”
Faithful to the actual frames used by U.S. military pilots for more than 40 years, Randolph’s Aviator Military Special Edition Collection recalls the Viet Nam War-era square design with bayonet temples. The Special Edition Military Collection features 12 examples of classic Aviator sunglasses in the brand’s most popular finishes, Matte Chrome and 23K Gold with the option of polarized and non-polarized 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. Each pair of aviators in this special edition collection comes with an embossed military-issued case, a custom Randolph dog tag keychain, military-inspired cleaning cloth, and a historical informational insert.
