Kit’s CEO, Merin Guthrie, began her career working with nonprofits in Washington, DC. As her job took her from creative events and board meetings to construction sites and City Hall, she noticed that even the smartest, most influential women endure drab, ill-fitting clothing.
This she compared with her own favorite pieces, her grandmother’s vintage dresses. Field-tested over decades of raising kids, growing a business, and traveling the world, their tailoring was impeccable, their silhouettes flattering and their style timeless, so unlike the mass-produced clothes that fill big stores and are so quickly discarded.
Guthrie’s love of design and knack for problem solving collided when that same grandmother gifted her a sewing machine. First making pieces for herself, she soon found herself working with other women where the disconnect between standard sizing and real women came into focus. The revelation? Yes, standard sizes are made to fit more people, but rarely do they fit us well.
Kit is the antidote to standard sizing and fast, throwaway fashion, combining meticulous attention to detail, graceful fit, and high-quality, breathable fabrics to build clothes for any kind of day, for years to come.
