This past Saturday in the perfect weather, and cozy backyard setting of our MOSCOT Brooklyn Shop backyard, folk singer-songwriter Bobby Long performed a special solo acoustic set, treating new and old fans to his talent. While taking a break from touring, guests were treated to new material from the UK-bred artist, wearing his LEMTOSH sunnies, during his hour-long up-close and personal live performance. If you're a fan of Ray LaMontagne, check out Bobby Long — you'll thank us later!

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!

In the grand tradition of schleps across America (err, family road trips), we've packed our bags (and plenty of ear plugs) and are hitting the road this summer. Beginning August 8th, we're following Grandpa Sol's tire tracks to say hey, howdy, hello, and hiya to the great shops that stock MOSCOT all across the USA and Canada!

It's officially official…with the tireless effort and hard work of our Polish representative, Michal Malka (who we first met when he sent us his photo for MOSCOT EyeSpy exactly one year ago this week - how cool is that!?), MOSCOT can now be found at custom tailors, Rudolf & Co., in Warsaw, Poland! Whoop!
Founder and owner, Jaroslaw Adamczak, not only believes in classic and timeless tailoring, but also in the highest quality customer service, dressing artists, musicians, actors, athletes, and many others looking for made-to-order, handmade suits. Sound familiar? Just a little, we think!
Sharing the likeminded goal of providing the best possible customer experience to fans, Rudolf & Co. couldn't be a more perfect fit as our first stockist for The MOSCOT Originals and MOSCOT Sun Collections in beautiful Poland! WE ARE PSYCHED!
Check out Rudolf & Co's beautiful atelier below, with more pictures and information available on their Facebook page: facebook.com/RudolfCo. BIG THANK YOUS to Michal, Rudolf & Co., and our European distribution partner, Baumvision Europe, for a job well done! (P.S. You might also recognize Michal from our newest 2013 MOSCOT Sun Campaign in The BEAUMONT!)

The quaint little town of Portogruaro in Venice, Italy, buzzed with excitement last weekend, thanks to our wonderful stockist, Ottica Coassin!
Taking inspiration from our love of fashion and music, Ottica Coassin dressed their storefront windows with MOSCOT Eyewear and classic electric guitars…how cool is that?! With over 100 guests in attendance, fans, customers, and press rocked the night away, viewing our latest MOSCOT Originals and MOSCOT Sun Collections.
A GIANT THANK YOU to Ottica Coassin, and to our European distribution partner, Baumvision Europe, for a job well done! We feel so lucky!
Check out Ottica Coassin's MOSCOT windows below and stay tuned for a very special video, coming up this week!
