RE glasses have actually been featured in countless movies over the years, including Top Gun and Flight of the Phoenix. With 9 different styles to choose from, the glasses start at $99-$119.95. If your man is a military guy, you'll be happy to know that RE offers a 15% discount for any active duty US Military Member.

Check out the sporty spectacles from Zeal Optics (price range: $99-$150)! The polarized lenses will give him clarity of vision. He'll love wearing them for all of his active pursuits - swimming, surfing, running, or walking with his family around town.

  1. I like the Avion or the Rapture for my hubby... He probably would choose the raptor - I guess he's chool the raptor for the sunglasses and I choose RAPTURE with my husband! eeks - freudian slip. I like the idea for nice sunglasses. I bought him really nice ones about 10 years ago.... but they aren't the best quality.... I think he deserves something nicer!!

  2. My hubbs would like the Avion (I asked him which was his favorite!). Which did your boy choose? Are they the sunglasses he's wearing in the jeans modeling shot?

  3. Thanks for the giveaway...I like the "P3" and the "Jag" from the Sunglass Series; Randolph supplied the sunglasses my Dad wore during the Vietnam War as a Marine Aviator, I think I still have the frames around somewhere...

  4. I like the Jag model from RE. I also like the Maestro from Zeal Optics but it doesn't seem like we are supposed to choose from that company.

  5. Niiiiiiiiice.

    Once again you seem to have reviewed a product I'm in the market for. I like nice sunglasses because I can hang on to them and not break 'em or lose 'em in a month or two. My pair of O's have lasted me about 6 years (maybe longer). The rubber comfort pieces have all fallen apart and off and they are no longer very comfortable.

    Oh and polarized == great for fishing! (for those of you who looked at the Bass Pro Shops feature here @ metropolitanmama)

  6. I would have to go with the raptor sun glasses. It would be nice if they had a design that covered more of the peripheral vision too, but they are good looking sunglasses. It would be nice to be able to replace my cheap K-mart sunglasses.

  7. Wow! I wish I could post a picture of my husband's current sunglasses... They are $5 gas station glasses, and several years old..

    I wish I could afford to get him the Jag pair! He'd look good!

  8. I like the Jag. My hubby wears prescription glasses but I couldn't find anything under the RX heading, so I don't know if it is my browser or I was looking in the wrong place.

  9. I need another excuse killer to get my husband to the beach with me and the kids!

    A sweet pair of sunglasses would do the trick! I like the Zeal Optics with the possible RX ready frames to really give him no excuse (he hates contacts at the beach but needs to see!!!)

  10. My favorite glassed from Randolph Engineering would have to be the Jag - I really love the style and the shape of the lenses. Very stylish looking glasses! Thanks for the giveaway!

  11. I think the Zeal optics would look great on my dad. He needs something more stylish than his walmart glasses.

  12. Sunglasses are truly such a necessity with all that we know these days about the harmful effects of the sun's rays. I would love to surprise my husband with a new pair for Father's Day since the sunglasses he currently has are really an inexpensive, poor quality pair. I would choose the Jag Style, I think they would look great on him and more importantly keep his eyes protected! Thanks so much for the chance to enter.

  13. I'm pretty sure he would like the Crew Chief glasses. He's so sick of his dollar store sunglasses.

  14. My husband needs a pair of durable sunglasses. He is very active and the Dollar Store pair he currently is wearing won't last much longer. (He has already had to replace a screw that fell out.) He would look awesome in the "Jag" style glasses.

  15. Wow, I don't know which ones look cooler, Jag or Raptor but I think I'd pick the Jags. Thanks again :)

  16. Man, I would love to have a pair of really quality sunglasses! All I've ever owned is the cheap kind. I'd love to win a pair of the Raptor.

  17. i would choose the avion glasses for my husband i really think they are the ones he would choose too i really like this site i think my hubby is super sexy in his glasses thanks again for another great giveway tina

  18. I would pick the great looking Raptor glasses. My Dad wears prescription sunglasses so I would give these cool glasses to my son who is away at college.

  19. I would choose the Raptor because they are similar too (but nicer) than a pair my husband had. Unfortunately, he sat on them and they are DESTROYED!

  20. I'd like the Raptor for my husband. He always buy cheap sunglasses at Target so these would be a nice gift! Thanks!

  21. My husband is a big sun glasses fanatic! He would love the Raptor sunglasses.

  22. I would love to have these for my husband, he never wears them but I worry about long time sun damage.

  23. I like the Raptor, but have no idea which would be the best for a grandson--and since there are 3 of them it might be a toss-up.

  24. I would love a pair of the classic Aviators. I once had a pair of the Ray Bans, but, sadly they are in sunglass heaven now. I have been coasting on cheapos ever since.

  25. I would pick the sportsman for my dad, or the avion. Im torn. He had a pair that looked like the sportsman but I like the avion better. Decisions decisions!

  26. I would love to win, so I could choose the
    JAG sunglasses with AGX Flash Mirror Lenses. SO HOT for the DH!!! We live in FL(sunshine state) and sunglasses are probably the most important accessory, in my opinion.
    Exciting giveaway!! Thanks so much for the chance to win.

  27. wow those are expensive! i don't know if i could ever justify paying that much for a pair of sunglasses for my husband who is continually losing his. but none the less, thanks for this give away. i know he'd love a pair of good ones to protect his eyes. he's a bomber type sunglasses kind of guy so i'd go with the Crew Chief pair.

  28. Nice sturdy sunglasses....I may have to "borrow" them from my hubby should we win! The Jag style from Randolph Engineering is my--ah, I mean, his-- favorite style. Thanks for the opportunity to win a pair.

  29. I would get either the Aviator, Intruder or the Raptor, it's a hard decision that I will have to make if I am lucky enought to win for my son.

  30. My husband would love the Raptor. He needs them because he's wearing the pair of sunglassed that he sat on last week.

  31. Wow those are stylish, my dad is obsessed with sunglasses. Have heard good things about RandolphUSA, so I will check out more things from them.

  32. What wonderful sunglasses. My husband told me that he really like the "Raptor" Sunglasses.
    Thanks, Cindi

  33. With all the sun we get in the South, this would be a great way to protect my eyes and look stylish doing it.

  34. The Sportsman would be perfect for my husband's many fishing trips - I'll let him pick the exact color of frame and lens

  35. I would choose "The Raptor" - good sunglasses that are also comfortable and a good fit are important! Thanks for the chance to win them!

  36. I'd go with the Jag glasses. I really need them since I lost my last pair tubing with my toddlers. But I can add that my 1.5 year olds butt didn't even touch the water when we flipped. Super Mom!

  37. thanks for the contest and all you do, I'd go for the P3's with the flash mirror lenses--yowza!!!

  38. A pair of Sunglasses would be great - the Raptor pair look really cool. My hubby could really use these because he squints and has squint wrinkles -lol.

  39. Those Raptor glasses would go great on my hubby- he lost his glasses a few weeks ago and we haven't been able to afford a new pair yet!

  40. i totally grew nostalgic when I saw the website. It was totally the IN thing to wear RE glasses when we were cadets in ROTC. FYI, these are standard military issue with prescription lenses for active duty. Anyway, my husband goes through sunglasses almost as often as Calvin goes through diapers. He'd definitely benefit from a decent pair just for driving (that's off limits for his tree climbing job). I'd love to win a pair of Jag classes for my hubby!

  41. My husband would love the Maestro glasses. These look so stylish. I don't think that he's ever treated himself to a nice and better quality pair of sunglasses for himself. He'd love these!
    Thanks so much for this giveaway!

  42. The Zeal Maestro glasses look perfect for my husband. He likes a sporty look and these also say that they fit large heads... he's a big boy.

  43. I love the aviator style. So far my husband and I haven't ventured outside of Target to buy sunglasses. It just seems silly to spend a lot of money on something that is constantly getting lost, sat on or, more commonly, pulled and tugged at by kids. These look like they are quality-made though.

  44. I would love the P3 glasses for my husband. What great looking glasses! Thanks for the chance to win.

  45. Like the unlined diverge zeal optics---my husband says those are the kind you need to play golf--frames seems to marr his vision when following the ball.

  46. I would choose the Raptor for my husband. He wears sunglasses all the time, and when I say all the time, I mean that I have to remind him to remove them when he is inside the house. He thinks that he is so cool that he has even given himself a nickname--"Slash".

  47. I love the Jag style sunglasses. My husband has a cheap pair of sunglasses that look like the $9.00 he paid for them. The kids make fun of his sunglasses every time he wears them.

  48. I like the Jag style. I also kind of like the Concord style, but if I'm entering for my husband, better stick with the Jag. These are sweet sunglasses!

  49. My husband uses his sunglasses a ton, for everything from mountain biking to working in the yard. And just driving, of course. But he refuses to spend much money on a pair, so they never last very long. I'd love to win a nice quality pair for her.

  50. I would choose Raptor. I love the classic style and that they are handmade. These would be perfect for my son.

  51. I think my husband would really like the raptor ones. He is into the more sporty looking sunglasses.

  52. I like the Raptor for my brother, who is my son's godfather. (Hubby doesn't need any sunglasses at the time.)

  53. I love the Jag style of the RE sunglasses! They are really nice looking!! The Raptor style would be my 2nd choice.

  54. My husband is currently wearing a pair of WOMEN'S sunglasses he found at the store where he works. I am dying to get him a good pair of aviators- he looks smoking hot in his nephew's RayBans... I would definitely get him the Concorde style.

  55. My husband needs to get a new pair of sunglasses. I think he would go for the P3, however, because they resemble the ones that he has been wearing for fifteen years!

  56. MH would love the Raptor pair! He bought a "nice" pair about 8 years ago when we were poor college students. Scrimped and saved all year for a whole $80 :)

    It was kind of a big deal!

  57. My husband can't leave the house without sunglasses but we have never bought him a really nice pair. He would be excited to get these.

  58. Oops forgot to mention which pair I would choose...I like them both but I think the Zeal Optics would best suit him.

  59. Oooh, my husband was just mentioning yesterday how old his sunglasses were. He was impressed he's had the same pair for 6 years without loosing them. I think he deserves a nice new pair. Thanks for the opportunity!

  60. My hubby loves sunglasses but we never splurge because they usually don't last very long. I think he'd like the Raptor.

  61. Zeal Optics would be a good match for my husband. And, considering he loses his sunglasses everytime he turns around (no, not that often really), one other pair would be awesome. Thanks for sharing.
