Sahar Shalev is a fashion journalist for Ha’Aretz, Israel’s oldest daily newspaper, though he’s known around the world as an ambassador for men’s style from Tel Aviv. We photographed him wearing these “Miltzen” frames from the iconic New York brand, Moscot.
These rounded frames were first introduced in the 1930s, and were named after an uncle in the Moscot family. The acetate frames feature exposed hardware, a keyhole bridge, and a three barrel hinge. Sahar liked the “old fashioned” look of these specs, and chose a pair in a traditional tortoiseshell to complete the retro-inspired influence. We love the way the simple, classic frames play off Sahar’s printed shirt and bright socks-and-cuffed-jeans combo, serving as both an anchor piece for the outfit and focal point.
