Randolph Engineering's Aviator Shades Are A US Miltary Favorite

Own It
BY : Kellie K. Speed | 2013

Everyone remembers just how cool Tom Cruise was playing US Naval Aviator Lieutenant Maverick in Top Gun with his aviator shades and leather bomber jacket. Some 25+ years later, we still can’t get enough of those classic shades. If you are in the market for some stylish new aviators similar to Maverick’s, meet Randolph Engineering of Massachusetts.

The local manufacturer has been producing these legendary shades for the military for 35 years. Based south of Boston in Randolph, Mass., the company began creating these sleek shades for the United States military back in 1978. Since then, the battle-tested sunglasses have become favorites of military pilots. Even before Top Gun was released, the United States Air Force contracted Randolph to produce the HGU-4/P Aviator sunglasses.

Military personnel aren’t the only ones who think these shades are super cool - Mad Men’s Don Draper has a pair of the Bright Chrome Aviators. Our personal favorite is the 23K gold plated Aviator shades with tan polarized lens and signature bayonet temples (specially designed for military pilots to increase contrast while reducing eye fatigue and glare in bright conditions). Other lens options include tan (for those needing eye protection), gray polarized (for extremely bright conditions and glare reduction), gray flash mirror (designed to reduce harsh light without polarization), gray (for absolute true color reception) and AGX (to selectively filter the color spectrum to reduce eye fatigue).

These uber stylish, American-made shades also provide 98-100% UV protection as well, and are available as a prescription frame with optional sunglass clip-ons. One of the most amazing things about these glasses is that each goes through more than 200 production stages – mostly by hand. The mineral glass lenses were designed to be exceptionally scratch-resistant, and provide absolute distortion-free clarity.Today, Rando
