GIVEAWAY | Randolph Engineering Sunglasses


The good people at the Boston-based menswear shop Ball & Buck are giving away one pair of Randolph Engineering sunglasses! This giveaway actually coincides with one of my current obsessions: The Randolph Engineering P3 (photo above), the round-lensed US Navy standard issue submarine sunglasses. I'm not sure why one would need sunglasses while working/operating a submarine, but I'm sure the Navy has it all figured out. The P3s are classics, yet unexpected—a combo that's hard to beat in my book. All that said, the winner of this giveaway will be able to choose any of the RE styles that Ball & Buck carries (up to a $179 value) like their famous military aviators as seen on these guys.

To enter the giveaway: Like Ball & Buck on Facebook and leave a comment below. The winner will be chosen Monday and announced on Facebook and here. Good luck, these are the perfect late summer shades!

+++UPDATE+++
The winner is Catriona! Congratulations!

Liz said...

I know it's the wrong branch of the military, but these make me think Top Gun. Is it weird that I root for Ice Man in that movie?

Anyway, I love these.

I've had a pair of Ray-Ban aviators since high school (10+ years) and I've been trying to find a new twist on my old favorites. Even if I don't win these I might buy a pair. You have definitely started a new obsession for me!

Vladut George Mihai said...

Randolph are the best sunglasses hands down.Sadly, I don't own any at the moment (but I had them in the past) and for sometime I want to get the Aviators, 55mm, grey non-polarized, matte chrome, bayonet. This coincides with my birthday on 8th August, so if I'm lucky, I might get the best birthday gift this year!

Laurel Canyon said...

Of course I want to look like Travis Bickle and Don Draper. Hot!

random article said...

I love that their website refers to Tom Cruise as "an objectively short Scientologist".

Doug said...

MT said...

great shades for him OR her!

Matt said...

Hook me up!!!

Sarah said...

Great! And speaking of menswear in Boston--if you ever go, check out Bobby from Boston. I'm a little biased being from Boston, but it's the best vintage store I've ever been in and Ralph Lauren goes there for inspiration!

Allison said...

i've been coveting the aviators for years!

Jess Coyle said...

Ah, awesome giveaway! My fave is definitely the Randolph Engineering Aviator, in the 23K gold-plated! *crosses fingers*

These STINK of cool. Not only do they look like they would flatter every face shape, but those lines are just so sleek and carefree, I can practically see a Ford commercial reflected in the lenses. One day when I'm not a student, I'll have nice things like these. One day...

I love this blog! Keep up the good tomboying!
