MOSCOT is a New York City institution renowned worldwide for its iconic eyewear. MOSCOT infuses its unmistakably refined, downtown aesthetic with over 100 years of eyewear expertise and unparalleled craftsmanship to create its timeless eyewear. While now recognized as a global fashion brand, MOSCOT remains, at heart, a neighborhood optical Shop. The MOSCOT optical roots were first planted in
America by great Grandfather, 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. By 1915, having amassed a following of loyal customers, Hyman opened the family’s first retail Shop, MOSCOT’s at 94 Rivington Street, and the rest,
as they say, is history!


Designed and prototyped in New York City, all MOSCOT Eyewear is 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.

Born and bred in NYC, Zack Moscot, 5th Generation, incorporates his family heritage and Lower East Side DNA in all his design details.

The MOSCOT Collection, based on styles from the Moscot family archives from the 1930s–1980s, 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 that 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.

With over 100 years of optical expertise, we know not every frame fits every face. “An important part of fit is determining where your eye sits in the frame. Your eyes should be well centered in the frame. Eyeglass frames that are too wide will make your eyes appear too close together, while narrow frames will give your eyes a wide-set look.” – Dr. Harvey Moscot, 4th Generation
