Randolph Engineering P3 Submariner

Randolph Engineering are back on the scene since their disappearance in the early ’90s and here is a look at one of their finest pairs of specs, the P3 Submariner.

Originally founded in 1972, Randolph Engineering is steeped in heritage and has had unmeasurable success in the past, finding it’s sunglasses being worn by Robert De Niro in Taxi Driver, Robert Duvall in Apocalypse Now, Johnny Depp in Once Upon aTime in Mexico and the U.S Military to name a few. Having vanished off the market in the early ’90s, it’s great to see this epic brand make a re-appearance for 2010.

The P3 Submariner is a timeless round-frame design that reminds me of John Lennon (another man to wear this brand in the past) that was originally designed for use in sabmarines … not sure what use sunglasses are in a submarine myself, but I’m sure they had good reason. These sunglasses are made of the highest quality, so high that Randolph Engineering actually give you a life-long warranty on the solder joints in the glasses! Combined with a rather technical and impressive maintenance kit, polish cloth and hard case this is more than just your average pair of sunglasses.

These beauties have just dropped at The Mandon Store for £120.
