If you loved The TERRY, our collaboration with famed photographer, Terry Richardson, you’ll be kvelling over The TERRY Sun with Downtown Dirty Brown lenses.

The AVERY – A classic, rounded silhouette, The AVERY is for the super smart professor who happens to be hot enough that he distracts from his own lecture. Made from acetate, The AVERY features a five barrel hinge, saddle bridge, two dot rivets on the temple, and an oversized temple tip. Available in Grey and Tortoise. 


The CHARLA – This delicate cat eye frame is for the woman who’s equally comfortable scouring the flea market for vintage couture as she is scouring the skies for Cassiopeia. Made from acetate, The CHARLA features a five barrel hinge, two dot rivets on the temples, and a saddle bridge. Available in Matte Black and Olive Horn.


The TAYLOR – This classic full-vu shaped frame is perfect for taking in the scenery whether you’re downtown, uptown, cross-town or all around town. Sleek, light and narrow, The TAYLOR is made from acetate and features a keyhole bridge, slim temples, and five barrel hinge. Available in Grey or Amber.


Made for the man who has spent countless hours shooting his own originals, MOSCOT introduces The TERRY LE – a new limited edition collaboration inspired by iconic photographer, Terry Richardson and his signature aviator specs.

A fixture on Terry, and often spotted on the faces of his subjects and the celebrities he shoots, The TERRY LE is as angular as it is oversized – essential for hours spent creating magic behind the lens. The frames – limited to only 350 pairs (225 Black, 125 Grey) – are laser numbered for authenticity and shipped in their own special edition cases. 

The faithfully reproduced TERRY LE is made of acetate with a key hole bridge with cut out detail, a five barrel hinge, and two dot rivets at the temples, and is available as ophthalmic eyewear or sunglasses, with or without a prescription.


The NEBB, in a special, limited edition Matte Black color. Like a New York city street in the summertime, these frames are hot. And when they're gone, they're gone for good!



Whether you're hiding from the sun or from prying eyes, The MOSCOT Sun Collection provides the perfect cover. Oversized and dramatic, vintage inspired and classic, or sleek and modern, MOSCOT Sun has a frame for every face. Depending on the style, frames feature real glass or CR-39 lenses for 100% UVA and UVB sun coverage and can be made with or without a prescription. And if you simply can't part with your favorite pair of MOSCOT Originals, fear not, The Collection is available as sunglasses as well. Who says protection can't be fun?


The ETTA is fun and quirky with whimsy to spare, just like our Great Aunt Etta, for whom the frame is named. Whether shouting from her soapbox, spinning a tall tale, or just tooling around the Lower East Side, Etta was a true original. Wildly cheerful and always high-spirited, her joie de vivre is vividly captured in the frame’s embellishments.

Designed for women, this rounded cat eye is made from acetate and features two star rivets on the front and temples, and a seven barrel hinge. The ophthalmic frame is available in Black Crystal, Olive Tortoise, and Amber Stripe.


The KOOPA’s colorful history begins in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, circa 1960, where its predecessor was the most popular frame among the Hasidim (Mazel Tov!). Fast-forward 50 years and this utilitarian chic frame still looks equally fetching whether you’re wearing The KOOPA at Schul, or while drinking at your favorite neighborhood watering hole. 

The KOOPA’s slightly oversized rectangular frame is made from acetate and features two dot rivets on the temples, a saddle bridge, and five barrel hinge. The ophthalmic frame is available in Black Crystal. 


The HYMAN, named for the man who started it all..our Great Grandpa, Hyman, is now available in Blonde. The MILTZEN, The MOSCOT Original with the longest lineage, is now available in Blonde and Flesh, and The NEBB, our chunkiest frame that screams “I’m a NEW YORKER,” is now available in Blonde.
