What is your position at MOSCOT?
I’m a lab technician, and sometimes I'm like a secret weapon with my handyman skills.
How long have you worked for MOSCOT?
For more than three years now! Wow...time flies! It feels like I started yesterday!
What is your favorite thing about working for MOSCOT?
If you would have asked me when I was a child, “What’s the part of the human body that impresses you the most?” my answer would have been, "The eyes." I’m happy to be learning and working in this field. The eyes are the windows to your soul.
What is your most memorable MOSCOT moment?
I was working late at our 14th shop to finish up an overseas order and ran downstairs to the deli to grab dinner. There was something happening outside on the street in front of our shop. I realized there was a movie being filmed! So I bought a sandwich, ran back upstairs, opened the shop window, and watched them film 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice' with Nicolas Cage! I had a VIP seat!
What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?
Ufff...I'm a sports lover! So for sure playing any sport, even if I'm not good at it! Also, fishing! I love to go fishing with my brother. We are excited because the fishing season is about to begin!
What is your favorite frame/ what frame do you wear?
I've definitely been a fan of The JORDAN from the beginning! I also like The IZZY (the one I'm wearing in the picture). I’m torn!

A poster child for non-conformists, Grandma Sylvia, for whom this frame is named, was a panic of a woman and one cool dame. Born with the name Zelda, Sylvia dreamed of being a star from birth, and while perhaps not the most conventional path...she’s certainly a star in our world. (Yup, she’s that Grandma Sylvia...star of our tote bags and chamois.) Made from metal, semi-rimless, acetate application on front and back of top eyewire and temple tips, characteristic groove detailing along bridge and metal temples, and a three barrel hinge. Available in Matte Gold/Mauve and Silver/Black.

It takes a brave man to defy the law, and Yosi, if not brave, was certainly a subverter. Selling “sauce” to swilling street peddlers and other hardworking Joes (and Joannes) during prohibition made him a rebel with a (noble) cause in our book. Cheers! Made from metal, with full metal eyewire, acetate application on front and back of top eyewire and temple tips, characteristic groove detailing along bridge and metal temples, and a three barrel hinge. Available in Matte Gold/Mauve, Silver/Black, and Matte Gold/Mauve with G-15 Lenses.

The tenderfooted Mendel, for whom this frame is named, sold his wares from a neighboring pushcart on Rivington Street – making him a friend and a competitor (coopertition!) of our dear Great Grandpa Hyman. Lucky for all of us, Hyman won. Made from metal, with full metal eyewire, characteristic groove detailing along the bridge and metal temples, and a three barrel hinge. Available in Gold with 30% Violet Tinted Lenses and Silver with 30% Blue Tinted Lenses.

A maverick who broke rank, Uncle Izzy departed from the charted (and expected) course, and headed West to the land of swimming pools and movie stars. While sunning poolside with starlets in December, he did not regret his decision. Made from metal, with full metal eyesore, characteristic groove detailing along the bridge and metal temples, and a three barrel hinge. Available in Gold with 15% violet Tinted Lenses, Gunmetal with 15% Blue Tinted Lenses, and Gold with Burnt Amber Lenses.
While the rest of their friends were settling into conventional lives, our debonair and dashing, Great Uncle Benno, for whom this frame is named, and the love of his life, our fearless, Great Aunt Gladys, ditched the burbs and moved to Cuba for an unconventional life of Cuba Libres and Cohibas. Made from metal, semi-rimless, acetate application on front and back of top eyewire and temple tips, with characteristic groove detailing along bridge and metal temples, and a three barrel hinge. Available in Matte Gold/Mauve, Silver/Black, and Matte Gold/Mauve with G-15 lenses.
