we believe in 5 principles: 1. suits 2. handcrafted with care 3. high quality 4. limited quantities 5. all seasons proof
our philosophy
the five was established in 2017 in Amsterdam with the philosophy in mind that every woman needs that “go to” outfit in her closet. with our love for ‘ton sur ton’ we created a perfect suit; a trouser with a double breasted blazer, that you can wear any place, anytime. an outfit to make you look timeless and classy with an edge, without having to compromise on comfort.
to us a suit doesn’t have to consist of trousers and a blazer. that is why the five has created multiple types of suits to fit any occasion. we create small collections with the perfect mix of style and comfort. the brand believes that instead of endlessly buying inexpensive, low quality clothing, it's always a much better idea to invest in a timeless, well-made piece. not only will you enjoy it forever, it's also much more sustainable.
honest manufacturing
all of our fabrics have been locally sourced in amsterdam and are handpicked with care. to ensure the quality of our products, we don’t mass produce. we works together with trusted family owned ateliers where all of their clothing is handmade. it’s very important to us that we are able to closely oversee our production to make sure it’s up to our high standards. this also means that more time is spent on every piece of clothing and our items are more exclusive.
we put a lot of time and effort into creating collections that are high quality, classic and timeless. therefore we don’t feel the need to participate in the fast fashion industry. we naturally create and drop new pieces and collections, always revolving around our quintessential suit in new editions.
