American eyewear company Randolph Engineering has launched a Special Edition Military Aviator Collection that includes military-specification accessories never before available to the public.

The Special Edition Military Collection features 12 SKUs 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. With each frame, you will receive an authentic, embossed military-issued case that features U.S. Military specification information, custom Randolph dog tag keychain, a military-inspired cleaning cloth, and a historical informational insert.

“For over 40 years, Our HGU-4/P Aviators have been built to the strict guidelines of MIL-S-25948J standards,” said Peter Waskiewicz, CEO of Randolph. “Though our mil-spec Aviator frames have always been available to our consumers, the authentic military case was never released to civilians until now.”

“Today, we’re still handcrafting each pair of sunglasses to military standard in our factory, just outside of Boston, MA,” added Sarah Fawle, chief marketing officer at Randolph. “We’ve even gained recognition from the White House who recently gifted custom military-style Randolph frames to noteworthy guests.”
