Last year, my half brother Robert very kindly sent me from the U.S a pair
of Randolph sunglasses explaining that our father an ex Colonel and
flight surgeon in the U.S Air Force ( it's a long story) wore them
frequently when flying. I showed them to our buying department
suggesting that we stock them in our Spitalfields shop where from time
to time we drop in products outside of Hackett branded goods because we
believe in their authenticity and find that they are complimentary to
The classic Randolph aviator fulfills that criteria perfectly as they are purposeful, well made and have long been in use by the American military. I am thrilled to announce that they are now available in our Spitalfields shop. I shall be making a trip to the South of France shortly sporting my Randolph Sunnies where famously Somerset Maugham commented "A sunny place for shady characters". I should fit in perfectly.
