Handcrafted American Eyewear

May 2, 2017

Aviator sunglasses are a timeless style that works well with every shaped face that there is. While they have become one of the most popular styles in the world, they have remained a staple of military gear for the U.S. military. Since 1978, Randolph Engineering has been producing aviators for our troops.

Each year, Randolph produces in excess of 200,000 units of the Mil-Spec Aviator for the United States Air Force. Today, Randolph remains an iconic brand with growing demand for well-made products with strong American heritage.


Randolph Engineering, Inc. is still owned and operated by three generations of the Wasziewicz and Zaleski families along with dedicated American workforce. Stop by Larrimor’s this weekend to see an entire trunk show collection and learn more about the brand.

Why not try some blue lenses?

There’s no doubt that the look is fashion friendly, in addition, some studies show blue lenses can have a calming effect on the eyes. The grey blue tint enhances contours around objects and reduces glare. This ease in viewing experience invokes less stress on the eye for longer time wear. While they are 100% defensive against UVA/UVB, they are best worn during moderate sunlight or in hazy, foggy or snowy conditions.  Wearing them while on the water will help increase the natural blues of the ocean and sky in any conditions.

Did you know… they are water resistant too!

Speaking of water, besides the optimal clarity that comes with wearing glass lenses, these styles boast a hydrophobic lens coating.  Hydrophobic simply defined means “afraid of water.” The specially designed coating facilitates run-off of water droplets from the lens surface. This allows the wearer a less distorted view when wearing them around water or in the rain. The coating also lends itself to the aid of cleaning your glasses making it quicker and easier to remove smudges.
