It is Ace & Tate’s mission to make glasses a fashion accessory instead of a medical instrument. We know how important it is to be able to change your look any time you want. We want to provide you with the possibility to match your frames with every occasion and all of your favourite styles. Therefore, we design quality frames at a fair price (€98 including prescription lenses, or €248 for varifocal), so you can continuously update your eyewear. And since we like to keep it simple, we’re not letting you pay for expensive license holders and retailers; you only want the high-quality design and manufacturing anyway.
It is an exciting time for Ace & Tate, as we continue to build our brand, reach new customers and open new stores in Europe. As such, we’re looking for a retail rising star to be the Store Manager in our new to open Brussels store, it will be our second store in the city.
