Kit and Ace cofounder JJ Wilson notes that Texas is a key market; the Austin store will be its third in the Lone Star state.
At the center of Austin’s new Kit and Ace store—opening in October—sits an 8-by-8-foot, custom-built table. It’s the upscale comfort-wear brand’s signature motif, a personalized touch to an otherwise global retailer, and it’s where Austin’s creative community will be invited on a monthly basis to private dinner parties.
The first supper club topic should be the retailer’s innovative street clothing, designed with the comfy qualities of athleticwear—a proprietary blend of viscose, cashmere, and elastane. “Austin is a dynamic, vibrant city, and its culture bleeds into its style scene,” cofounder and brand director JJ Wilson says of the company’s decision to enter the market. “It is fresh and innovative, which aligns with [Kit and Ace].” 608 W.
