What we love:

The packaging. Boy do we love the packaging! This may seem trivial, but it is in the finer details that companies as awesome as MOSCOT truly excel. Attention to detail is everything and MOSCOT leave no doubt that they perfect every element of their product.

Here are some of the details featured on the Iconic Lemtosh & Bummi:

Traditional quality charnier detailing

Spirit of Moscot are produced with the same DNA as the Originals but offer a finer profile. We have featured Jared here. Sunclips are a feature of MOSCOT being available for many of their models. Shown here is Jared with metallic end tip detailing and our favourite plastic rimmed sunclip that changes the profile of the optical beautifully.
