KIT AND ACE
Kit and Ace is an innovative technical apparel brand revolutionizing how we think about clothing. Based in Vancouver, Kit and Ace takes the design principles of athletic apparel and through technical fabrics, properties, and functions applies them to clothing for real life (outside the gym). Kit and Ace was created for people who love to move and understand how technical clothing should perform, people who are spoiled by the comfort and movement of athletic apparel and find it hard to wear anything else.
