Haute Secrets Boston: Nate Kerzner of Randolph Engineering

The folks at Randolph Engineering know what it takes to create the perfect pair of sunglasses. Their line of stylish shades are designed to not only protect your eyes when fishing, hunting, shooting, piloting an F18 fighter jet or simply driving a car, but their beautiful designs have caught the eye of many celebrities. Bradley Cooper, Ethan Hawke, Al Pacino and Tom Cruise have been seen sporting them around town, Michael Keaton donned a pair to the Academy Awards and Sam Jaeger wore a pair in the blockbuster hit American Sniper.

The brand is based in Randolph, Massachusetts, 20 minutes south of Boston, where they craft beautiful styles like the Aviator, Corsair, Coronado, Raptor, Intruder and Sportsman models.
