Moscot is a high-end luxury brand that celebrates time tested classic styles of the 1930s-1980s with retro charm and appeal. Designed and prototyped in New York City, all Moscot frames are handmade, using the highest quality materials, real hardware, and hinges that are riveted through the temple and frame fronts to ensure the sturdiest construction possible. The line infuses its unmistakably refined, downtown aesthetic with over 100 years of eyewear expertise and unparalleled craftsmanship to create its timeless eyewear.
Rich in heritage and born in a true American Dream, Moscot’s optical roots were first planted in America in 1899 when Hyman Muschot, a Jewish-Belarusian immigrant, first arrived to New York City by way of Ellis Island. Having already worked in the optical business in his home country, he began selling ready-made eyeglasses from a wooden pushcart in Lower Manhattan. By 1915 having amassed a following of loyal customers, Hyman opened the family’s first retail shop, MOSCOT.
Both the eyeglasses and sunglasses are categorized under two collections: MOSCOT Originals & MOSCOT Spirit. The Originals collection celebrates the classic good looks and timeless designs born in decades past. The Spirit collection departs from the family archives, but still shares the same great DNA as the Originals. Materials vary from acetate to metal and beta-titanium, and on average each frame is expertly crafted in over 130+ steps. The collection is available in a variety of frame and lens color combinations and sizes.
Moscot is popularly known for its collaborations and association with many artists and celebrities. Johnny Depp, Woody Allen, and The Roots frontman Tariq Trotter have made the brand popular. Other celebrities such as Brad Pitt, Kanye West, MC Mong, Joe Odigiri have also been spotted wearing Moscot eyewear as well. While now recognized as a global fashion brand, MOSCOT remains, at heart, a neighborhood optical shop.
