Randolph, MA/New York NY, September 13, 2010 – Randolph Engineering, a
leading manufacturer of high-performance eyewear has partnered with Michael
Bastian, American menswear designer and repeat CFDA Menswear Designer of the
Year nominee for his own label.

Both Bastian and Randolph Engineering exemplify luxury Americana tendering the
fashion world a distinctive blend of timeless style and contemporary flair. The
vision of these two brands is aligned perfectly and will undoubtedly be a
relationship that will flourish for years to come.

Michael Bastian says “I have been a huge admirer of Randolph Engineering
sunglasses for many years now. It’s rare to find a company who’s product is
technically perfect, completely functional, and cool and at the same time. To me,
they produce the ideal classic masculine sunglass, and I’m very happy to have this
opportunity to work together.”

Coming off the heels of his most recent success of the Gant by Michael Bastian
collection, Bastian is poised for another dazzling debut of his Spring/Summer 2011
line. Randolph Engineering is also poised for marked success in 2011 with plans to
expand its sunglass line offering new styles and featuring the Michael Bastian

“This collaboration has been a long time in the making as Michael Bastian
collections have been paired with our sunglasses for many years now,” said Mary
Waszkiewicz, Marketing Manager, Randolph Engineering. “Michael’s work reflects a
mastery of classic American style and authenticity, and his insight is invaluable as
we continue to expand into an iconic American brand. We are elated to be working
with him so closely on these limited edition sunglasses.”

The sunglasses, to be available this February, will be previewed during New York
Fashion Week at the Michael Bastian Spring/Summer 2011 show.
