MOSCOT is a New York City Institution renowned worldwide for its iconic eyewear — The Originals and Spirit Collections.
MOSCOT infuses unmistakably refined, downtown aesthetic with nearly 100 years of eyewear expertise and unparalleled craftsmanship to create timeless eyewear. While now recognised as a global fashion brand, they remain, at heart, a neighbourhood optical shop.
The MOSCOT optical roots were first planted in America by Great Grandfather and family patriarch, Hyman Moscot, who arrived from Eastern Europe via Ellis Island in 1899. Hyman began selling ready-made eyeglasses from a pushcart on Orchard Street on Manhattan’s famed Lower East Side.
The Originals Collection is based on styles from the family archives from the 1930s – 1980s. It celebrates the classic good looks and timeless design born in decades past.
The eyewear retains the authenticity of the original frame styles including period details, traditional hardware, and real glass sunglass lenses. Their frames precisely duplicate the true old-school colors first fabricated by the Company in the 1940s. The faithfully reproduced Collection is available as ophthalmic eyewear or sunglasses, with or without prescription, in a variety of frame and lens color combinations and sizes.
Since it’s inception, the Moscot family have been an integral part of the business. Over five generations they have nurtured it’s development, helping it blossom into a world renowned brand.
