Are you a lover of glasses or a collector of sunglasses? If you are, you are bound to know MOSCOT! If not, keep reading because the story is about to get started. Moscot is not just another success story about immigrants in America during the early 20th century, but the Moscots' family stood out from the crowd and became the American classic just like the

"...white t-shirts, jeans, and wing-tip shoes" as mentioned by B. magazine.

The story of the Moscot optical roots started when Hyman Moscot arrived at New York from Eastern Europe in 1899. He started selling ready-made eyeglasses from a pushcart and put all his heart into his project. Hyman not only knew suppliers, the market well but he also had a growth strategy. Generations later, his family sell not only thousands of different glasses, their store, under a big yellow sign, is an authentic cabinet of curiosities.

The Moscot store and brand name carries with them the memorabilia and nostalgic feels from each and every celebrity wearing a pair of Moscot glasses. They are the proof of the mastery of a cool concept combined with the elements of fun!
