Getting older and losing your sight? Or do you just want to look smarter at the business meetings or own yourself a celebrity style? MOSCOT is a five-generation, American luxury eyewear brand, headquartered in New York City, specializing in optical frames and sunglasses.
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. Now the Moscot company belongs to the 21st oldest eyewear company in the world still operating today.
Moscot is popularly known for its collaborations and association with many American artists and celebrities. Actor Justin Theroux, a longtime customer of the brand, has a frame named after him based on those his character wore in the 2001 movie Mulholland Drive.
Current customers include celebrities such as Jeff Goldblum, Paul Rudd, Tim Burton, Sting, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kanye West, Mary-Kate Olsen, James Franco, Anne Hathaway and many many more.
But you do not have to be a celebrity to wear Moscot. Choose your favorite!
