Randolph Engineering—the Randolph-based handcrafted eyewear specialist known for supplying the US Army and Air Force with their specs—is releasing an all-black aviator style this week. Exclusive to men's retailer Mr. Sid in Newton, the new sunglasses go by the name of Stealth, and stealth they are. Inspired by military aircraft technology, the limited edition pair features a blacked-out framed, discreet lens logo, special black nose pads, matte black sweat-bar, and black temple tips. At $249, it offers lifetime-warranted solder joints and nearly 100% UV protection. Stealth will launch in the brand's store-in-store at Mr. Sid this Thursday.
