Recently you may have seen me talk about my new love on social media. The love comes in the form of my new specs, by MOSCOT Originals:
I picked them up from the very cool store on Beak Street (which is the one just at the end of Carnaby Street), which is basically a haven for anyone looking for a pair of unique glasses with personality and after some serious specspiration!
All MOSCOT eyewear is handmade using the highest quality materials, real hardware, and hinges that are riveted through the temple and frame fronts to ensure the sturdiest construction possible. Every MOSCOT frame is available as ophthalmic eyewear or sunglasses, with or without a prescription, and is customizable in a variety of frame and lens color combinations and sizes.
Now is a good time to check out the brand because they’ve just released the Fall/Winter 2016 Collection, which on top of the current offering includes five new MOSCOT Originals and three new MOSCOT Spirits frames.
The new Original’s include:
The BRUDE: A round-square shape, and easy good looks, but is made from a metal acetate combination, and is rivet-free. First seen on brudes, dudes, and sisters in the 1960s, hence the name, it features lovely detailed engraving on its bridge and temples.
The combination metal acetate frame has no exposed hardware on the frame front, detailed metal skiving on the bridge and temples, and real three barrel hinges. The Sunglasses also have real glass lenses.
The GROYSE: Big on style, big on character. With its soft round shape, raw gold color, and a bridge that sits high, and features retro, flat beveled edges, The GROYSE is 1970s all the way. Can you dig?
Made from metal with flat beveled edges on the bridge, Silicon nose pads, and real three barrel hinges. Sunglasses have real glass lenses.
Available in Raw Gold. Sunglasses are available in Raw Gold with Cosmitan Brown Lenses.

The KLUG: With detailed skiving on its bridge and temples, and a sophisticated, rectangular design, you’d be smart to don the metal acetate KLUG, and bonus… you’ll look smarter wearing it too.
