This New York institution was started over 100 years ago by Hyman Moscot, who originally sold glasses out of a pushcart. Still operating on the same street as its second home some eight decades later, the flagship store is a must-see retail destination in the Lower East Side and can be seen from afar for its bright yellow facade.


Seen in many period films and on famous faces such as Johnny Depp, Jeff Goldblum, Demi Moore, Michelle Williams…the list goes on and on. Not surprising, as this brand has stuck to its roots and produces classic shapes that have stood the test of time. And while many other labels have tried over the years to produce similar styles, we think imitation is the best form of flattery!


With years of fine-tuning the comfort and feel of their spectacles, these are some of the comfiest specs out there. If you’re after a pair of glasses that won’t date and will still look current in years to come, Moscot is one to look out for.
