An eager crowd of fans filled up The MOSCOT Brooklyn Backyard last Saturday afternoon to see Hellogoodbye play a special solo, acoustic show, and Forrest Kline, guitarist and songwriter of Hellogoodbye, did not disappoint!
The intimate set was an incredible show to wrap up our last MOSCOT Music event of the summer…thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy the show!
We have more awesome events at our new MOSCOT Orchard Street Gallery and Music Space planned for fall! Stay tuned for more news!
We have BIG, BIG, BIG news to share with you today!!! That's THREE times the BIG!
Super cool musician and songwriter, Myles Kennedy, will be at The MOSCOT Gallery and Music Space inside our Orchard Street Shop, on September 12th, 2013 to perform a live, 45-minute acoustic set for select fans and VIPs, in support of The MOSCOT Mobileyes Foundation! This performance will also be our FIRST at our new space, where Myles will be kicking off a slew of MOSCOT Music events, starting in the fall. Stay tuned for more news on how YOU can win tickets to this event, where we get up close and personal with the lead singer of Alter Bridge and Slash. Whoop!
BIG news #2…we have two upcoming online auctions, featuring an hour-long private guitar lesson with Myles AND the opportunity to bid and win an autographed PRS guitar by Myles…all in support of The MOSCOT Mobileyes Foundation! Can we get a whoop whoop?! More news to come, you won't want to miss out!!!
Last but not least...not only will Myles be in the Big Apple to perform, but we're also super excited to announce our newest collaboration is with him! Introducing, The MYLES — a conscious collaboration featuring a new sunglass created from an old classic and designed to emulate Myles' laid back, rock star style. AND…10% of proceeds from The MYLES purchased in MOSCOT Shops and online at moscot.com, will benefit The MOSCOT Mobileyes Foundation. Derived from the MOSCOT Original SECHEL, The MYLES incorporates quality details and precision aesthetics, with a modern flare, and will be available in-store and online, September 12th! Whoop, whoop, WHOOP!!!
We're super thrilled (can you tell?!) to be partnering with MOSCOT fan and friend of the brand, Myles Kennedy!!! It is truly an honor to have Myles on board with The MOSCOT Mobileyes Foundation — a cause we can all get behind! To learn more about MOSCOT Mobileyes, please visit: moscotmobileyes.org.

We first crossed the East River with our Court Street Shop in Brooklyn…then we crossed Delancey Street from 118 to 108 Orchard…now, we've crossed the Pacific…Ocean, that is! Yup, you heard (err, read) right, we've opened our fourth Shop in Seoul, South Korea — our first and only MOSCOT Shop outside New York City! Whoop!
In cooperation with our Korean distribution partner, CED International, MOSCOT Seoul has opened its doors in the fashionable Songpa-gu district in Seoul — where we feel right at home, as it's very much like our own backyard…downtown New York City!
Fans will be pleased to find familiar MOSCOT touches, including the same quirky historical tchotchkes, warm cherry wood eyewear showcases, and our ubiquitous MOSCOT yellow. But while paying homage to the Big Apple, our new Shop also pays respect to its hometown, seamlessly blending Korean design and cultural elements into the mix.
MOSCOT Seoul, which is now open, will celebrate its grand opening in late October 2013 (date to be announced), when the MOSCOT team heads to Seoul to help celebrate! In the meantime, here's a sneak peek of our new Shop, MOSCOT Seoul!!!
We're thrilled to announce MOSCOT is now available at retail shop, Baldwin Denim, located in the heart of County Club Plaza, in Leawood, Kansas!
A clothing and lifestyle brand founded on the principles of modern design, quality textiles, and American manufacturing, Baldwin Denim blendstimelessness, modernism, and classic American style…not unlike MOSCOT. Carrying a variety of MOSCOT frames from The MOSCOT Originals, Spirit, and Sun Collections, we're super happy to be partnering with a such a cool brand, who shares our passion for quality, customer service, and heritage — kismet!

A culmination of art, design, and music, Pulsart Restart is not only a super cool (and quite possibly the largest) summer arts festival in Italy, but it's open to the public until July 21st! With more than 1500 guests flocking in on the first day (amazing!), we're in awe of what Baumvision Europe, our European distribution partner, created in the Palazzo Fogazzaro on behalf of MOSCOT— our historic MOSCOT Shop once located at 94 Rivington Street back in 1925!! The one our Great Grandpa Hyman first opened and stands in front of in the iconic photo that adorns our MOSCOT Mini Trunks and this very Facebook page! WOWOWOW! Check out the amazing and beautiful photos below!
