Simply put, Ace & Tate designs, makes and sells eyewear and sunglasses online from £98, prescription lenses included.

We founded Ace & Tate on the premise that high quality, high fashion eyewear doesn’t have to command a high price. We eliminate third-party markups, middlemen and license margins. Each Ace & Tate frame originates from our Amsterdam design studio. Because we personally oversee each link in the production chain, we are able to offer uncompromising quality at an uncompromising price.

By cutting out the margins. Ace & Tate customers pay for design, and quality, and nothing else.

We are convinced that a high quality pair of prescription glasses should not come with a high price. By cutting out the middlemen we eliminate the very high markups that have distorted the eyewear market for a long time.
The Ace & Tate Creative Fund grants funding to emerging artists in order to bring brilliant ideas to life. As a start-up, we flourished thanks to the belief in our brand and strong ties with a dynamic creative community. The Ace & Tate Creative Fund marks our commitment to this community by giving back and helping launch originative projects and individuals.

It supports individuals or collectives working anywhere, in any medium, who take creative risks to break new ground. The fund begins with a one-off grant for a specific project, but the relationship doesn’t end there. We use our established networks and connections to guide and assist production. By promoting artists through social channels and our carefully selected partners, we amplify presence, expanding existing networks, and creating new audiences for award-holders.
