One night, two charitable foundations, and three musicians to bring it all back to the LES for a night to remember.
The long awaited performance by Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter, lead vocalist and co-founder of the Grammy winning hip-hop group The Roots, finally came last night and let's just say, it was worth the wait! Our cozy Orchard Street Gallery & Music Space was packed with fans and friends of the band and brand, all for two awesome causes — the GrassROOTS Community Foundation and The MOSCOT Mobileyes. With a strong beat by Jeremy Ellis, Ray Angry on keys, and Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter leading the night, we couldn't be more thankful for the amazing turnout and the generosity of all. On behalf of both charities, THANK YOU!Interested in learning more about the charities involved? Visit GrassROOTS Community Foundation and MOSCOT Mobileyes Foundation online for more information.

100 years of history, 100 years of MOSCOT, and one big birthday party to say THANKS!
The January chill couldn't keep away the many family, friends, fans, and customers (some from as far away as ASIA and RUSSIA!) from helping us celebrate our 100 Year Anniversary, and WOW, what a turnout!
In true MOSCOT style, we decorated The Jane Hotel's ballroom to reflect the many years and decades of our family history, showcasing our favorite historical photos, a larger than life Great Grandpa Hyman, and our iconic Mannequin Heads, while keeping the vibe familial and cozy.
Not only did we want to say thanks, but also GIVE thanks, because we wouldn't be here today without ALL OF YOU! From our NEW MOSCOT 100 Year Collection and video, to our 100 Year LEMTOSH birthday cupcakes and our Grandma Sylvia costumed servers, we're super excited and totally psyched for 2015, and we hope you are too !!!
From us to YOU, THANK YOU for the last 100 years and to another 100 years and counting!Stay tuned for our next event of 2015…MOSCOT Music will be returning on February 12th featuring Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter, to benefit The GrassROOTS Foundation and MOSCOT Mobileyes!

We've been holding this in, but the time has FINALLY come!
In celebration of our 100 Year Anniversary, we've partnered with smart, internationally recognized for perfect urban mobility, for one clever collaboration!
MOSCOT and smart have combined 100 years of superior optical expertise and automotive ingenuity for a collaboration that has everything you need to “keep moving and stay original,” whether you’re on four-wheels or two feet: The LEMTOSH smart, The MOSCOT smart Drive Package, and The smart fortwo edition MOSCOT! WHOOP!
Fusing style with functionality, and innovation with tradition, The smart fortwo edition MOSCOT, a smart fortwo cabrio (aka a convertible!), The LEMTOSH smart, MOSCOT’s perennial favorite frame in our iconic colors, and The MOSCOT smart Drive Package, a set of three Clip-on Sun Lens combinations for an enhanced optical experience (in rain or shine, and everything in between), celebrate MOSCOT’s 100 Year Anniversary, and are the perfect expression of individual style and urban life both brands are known for.Help us celebrate 100 years, and don't forget to "Keep moving — Stay Original."
In honor of our 100th Anniversary (yes, MOSCOT IS ONE HUNDRED! WHOOP!), we're celebrating BIG TIME with the launch of The MOSCOT 100 Year Anniversary Collection — an homage to our most beloved, and iconic frame, The LEMTOSH. Happy Birthday to us…and YOU!
The MOSCOT 100 Year Anniversary Collection features three new Special Edition LEMTOSH that honor the past, with an eye on the future: The LEMTOSH WOOD, LEMTOSH FOLD, and LEMTOSH smart.
Reminiscent of Great Grandpa Hyman’s historical wooden pushcart, from which MOSCOT sold its first pair of glasses, LEMTOSH WOOD features real wood inlayed in acetate – the perfect amalgamation of old and new!
The LEMTOSH FOLD goes where no LEMTOSH has gone before: tucked into tailored pockets and squeezed inside tiny clutches. Combining classic design with cutting edge technology, The LEMTOSH FOLD literally folds into pocket-sized perfection!
Layering MOSCOT’s classic Pantone 602-C Yellow with Matte Black acetate, LEMTOSH smart is a clever incarnate, and can be purchased with or without the special, limited two-seater convertible smart fortwo edition MOSCOT!
Whether you're on two feet or four wheels, our MOSCOT smart Drive Package is the apex of fun and function with three different Clip-on Lens combinations for optimum optics while driving: a Silver Clip with Vermilion Lenses for overcast conditions; a Yellow Clip with poloarized G-15 Lenses for sunny conditions; and a Black Clip with high contrast Yellow Lenses for night conditions, all safely housed in a soft and functional tri-fold case! Take that, Mother Nature!AND, this is just the beginning! We're SUPER excited to celebrate all year long with our biggest fans, so stay tuned for more news and events!!!
