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‚ famed Lower East Side, and the rest, as they say, is history!
Together, the fourth generation Moscot siblings reinvented what was once a neighbourhood optical shop into what is now a global lifestyle brand, beloved by fans worldwide.
The MOSCOT Originals, MOSCOT Spirit, MOSCOT Titanium and MOSCOT Sun Collections, as well as MOSCOT branded lifestyle products and accessories, are sold worldwide via moscot.com, in the company’s New York City-based retail shops, and in specialty boutiques and optical shops across the globe.
Famously worn by Johnny Depp and other high profile Fashionistas.
