“They don’t make things the way they used to.” While we cringe when we hear this phrase here at RYE & RIVET, most of the time we really can’t deny it–-A 10-month old cell phone is already showing signs of dementia, the A/C in the car turns off at speeds over 45mph, and this very laptop has a battery life of literally zero minutes when not plugged in. We live in a pretty disposable world, and as much as it’s our goal to combat that with the brands we feature on RYE & RIVET, sometimes it’s just the truth. Not so with Randolph Engineering. We recently heard a story of a 35+ year-old pair of RE sunglasses being discovered (with only very superficial wear, we might add), sent back to the manufacturer, and replaced for free. Thirty five years. Can your car, laptop, or cell phone even count that high? We thought not. So next time you’re looking for something to invest in-– use your eyes. Get them here.
