Occasionally we run across some products we feel are part of our lifestyle brands that have a cool story to tell. Several months ago we came across a sunglass company in Vegas, previously suggested by a friend – Randolph Engineering (RE). RE is based out of Randolph, MA, and has been the standard issue equipment to the US Military and Air Forces all over the world since 1982. Each pair is made here in the USA, in Randolph, MA, with over 200 production steps, mostly by hand. Each pair comes with a lifetime guarantee.
If the whole “standard issue equipment” isn’t enough for you, they’re quite fashionable as well. Don Draper sports the Gold Aviators with the Gray Polarized lenses and bayonet temples in Mad Men. As they say, how can Don Draper be wrong? As well, fashion designer, Michael Bastian, has been using RE’s on all his runway models for years.They are the true all american look.
RE’s have now caught the eye of many fashion forward designers, movie stylists and celebrities. The reason being that Randolph Engineering is still a family owned company, carefully dedicated to the original style of the aviator at an unbeatable quality.
We’ve each already selected our favorites – Scott the Aviator and Jana the Concorde, as they are a truly uni-sex style. We love finding new things that fit with the quality and style you’ve come to expect from us. And we’ll always keep looking. Plus, keeping things made in the USA is always important to us. But right now, we’re excited to share Randolph Engineering. We’ve got them in the store. Come check them out.
