Alé has been one of the largest growing clothing brands on the market in the last few years, with the typical brightly coloured garments cropping up almost everywhere. Interestingly, Alé is one of the only companies that sees a near 50/50 split between male and female sales.
The brand has been producing kit from its home in Verona, Italy for 30 years and no provides custom kit, which this ambassador program hopes to promote.
