A Gentleman’s Guide to the Holidays: Looking good with @Moscot

A Gentleman’s Guide to the Holidays is here.  This special feature showcases my top holiday gift ideas of the year.  Take it from me– I’m a dude, and I keep it classy like Ron Burgundy.  It’s my mission to help guide you through the madness of the holiday season with a collection of simple, manly, and sophisticated products for the gentlemen in your life.

In this edition, I’m happy to present a longtime, family owned company that makes classic eyewear in the great city of New York.  Since 1915, Moscot eyewear has been doing it right with a fascinating history- beginning with an Eastern European immigrant selling eyeglasses from a pushcart in the Lower East Side, before blossoming into an iconic NYC institution.

Sometimes worn for sun protection, often worn because it’d be impossible to see anything without them.  Whatever the reason, Moscot has always designed timeless frames for all occasions.

I’d like to introduce fellow gentleman and all around top-notch nice guy, Lance Lee, to show off two of my favorite frames from the Moscot Originals collection: YUKEL and LEMTOSH.

YUKEL by Moscot.

Sunglasses are the norm in California because it’s so darn sunny all the time.

This collection is based on styles from the Moscot archives from 1930-1970 and retain the authenticity of the original frame styles from the lenses, down to the traditional hardware.  Their throwback style pays homage to the old school eyewear first fabricated by the company in the 1940s.

Moscot Eyewear have three flagship shops in New York City and one in Seoul, South Korea.  Their frames are also available at various retailers across the world.  If you prefer the internet, moscot.com has got you covered.

A special thanks to Lance Lee for modeling these frames!  Stay classy.
