Moscot

MOSCOT Eyewear and Eyecare Since 1915 is a New York City company, specializing in eyewear.

The company was founded by family patriarch Hyman Moscot, who arrived from Eastern Europe via Ellis Island in 1899 and began selling ready-made eyeglasses from a pushcart on Orchard Street on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, finally opening a shop on Rivington Street in 1915.[1][2] In 1951, Hyman's son Sol moved the shop to its current location on Orchard Street.[3] The company, currently run by fourth generation Moscot siblings, Kenny and Dr. Harvey Moscot, has two stores in Manhattan, with their branded eyewear sold at stores worldwide. [4] Their clientele includes celebrities such as Johnny Depp, Sting, Lance Armstrong, Kanye West, Kiefer Sutherland, Renée Zellweger, Denzel Washington and Mary-Kate Olsen.[1][5]

The frames of the vintage-inspired Originals collection precisely replicate styles from the MOSCOT archives from the 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s including glass lenses in the sunglasses, and lens colors that duplicate the colors first fabricated by the company in the 1940s, whilst the Spirit collection combines modern styling and classic elements.

In the spring of 2008, MOSCOT teamed up with fashion designer Chris Benz for a limited edition run of 4 special colors for the classic Nebb frame. Only 200 were available, each numbered for authenticity. Just recently, Moscot announced a new frame in honor of actor and long time customer Justin Theroux. THE THEROUX is an exact replica of the glasses Justin wore in the 2001 film Mulholland Drive.

MOSCOT Eyecare also provides patients with comprehensive eyecare services.
