Moscot was born in 1915 when Hyman Moscot opened a family retail shop after amassing a loyal following of customers  from selling ready-made glasses out of a pushcart in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Moscot is a New York City Institution renowned worldwide for its iconic eyewear. Moscot infuses its unmistakably refined, downtown aesthetic with nearly 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.
