Randolph is a U.S. company that launched in 1973. Former Royal Air Force navigator Jan Waszkiewicz and his partner Stanley Zaleski immigrated to America with the desire to create the world’s best sunglasses. They settled in the town of Randolph, outside of Boston, and opened their factory.
Both had skills in engineering and from the beginning, each pair of sunglasses has been made by hand and is guaranteed for life. In 1978, they partnered with the U.S. Department of Defense to produce the HGU-4/P Aviator for fighter pilots so their product had to be exceptional and built with strict military standards.
Randolph is a family-owned company that believes in integrity, ethics, and high quality.
Randolph Aviator Sunglasses are built for comfort
I was hesitant to try wire-rimmed glasses because they have always been uncomfortable for me in the past even though I love their sleek design. They usually cut into my nose and leave a mark. After wearing my Thadens over a period of time I was surprised at how comfortable they felt.
So far no marks or discomfort. They’re lightweight and the lenses work well for multiple light conditions. I can see how they would last a long time if they are properly taken care of.
On their website, you’ll find a long list of celebrities who love wearing them. They include Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise, Ellen DeGeneres, Amy Adams, and many more.
Their beauty lies in their classic style. Aviators look great on almost everyone but you can also choose from a variety of other styles and lens colors.
The Thaden is a classic teardrop shape with petite, feminine details. I have a small oval face so they’re perfect for me. Of course, with their military connections, one style is called the Amelia, after Amelia Earhart.
Finishes include Matte Chrome, 23k Gold, 23k White Gold, 22k Rose Gold, Bright Chrome, Matte Black, Gunmetal and Fusion. Each frame takes over 6 weeks and 200 individual steps to build.
If you aren’t satisfied with your sunglasses you can return them at no charge in original purchase condition and packaging within 30 days.
If you register your frames online after receiving them it activates a 2-year warranty against breakage. The company also offers a Tune-Up Service in case you need a frame re-fit, a full cleaning, or new nose pads.
I’m thoroughly enjoying my pair and hope you’ll try them too.
