FAQ


Why Fifth Code?

Why not? Just kidding. The idea behind the name was how there’s always 4 pillars in a building and 4 legs to a table or a chair, and just like in a group, the one who dresses differently gets to be noticed. Similarly, we believe the 5th item added to a man’s basic clothing (underwear, shirt, jeans, and shoes) — the Fifth Code blazer makes them stand-out. Agree? Agree.

Who owns Fifth Code?

I’m Lorenz Namalata and I own FIFTH CODE. Started to loathe the time I didn’t know any better and wasted so much money for my prom suit. So, I want to be a menswear designer and change the rules. I do all the sourcing, creative stuff involved. Oh and I also seek help from a bunch of my talented and creatively inclined friends as well.

How do you order?

 FIRST: MEET-UP

Ensure proper measurements and fit, collaborate with the design you have in mind and for custom-made pieces just for you. Can do meet-ups at QC, Ortigas and Taft Area. It takes 2-3 weeks before your blazer can be made. No rush orders will be entertained. PLEASE.

 SECOND: ORDER ONLINE.

See the size chart, choose and send us an email at fifthcode@gmail.com. We will require you to send a scan of your deposit slip within 5 days or it will not be processed. Shipping to anywhere in the Philippines or overseas is possible but charges will be shouldered by the customer. FIFTH CODE will not be liable in case of size problems as the customer has been fully responsible for choosing the size.

Do you do custom-made pieces?

We do! As mentioned, this can be done through meet-ups alone.

How do I pay?

You can deposit through the following ATM account numbers:
UCPB Deposit (Acct #: 10-134-000258-5)
BDO Deposit (Acct #: 6540041186)
BPI Deposit (Acct #: 6716-1000-55)You will be required to scan and email a copy of your deposit slip at fifthcode@gmail.com or it will not be processed.

How long do I have to wait?

Being a student is still my priority and in between projects, homework, and doing other errands that’s when FIFTH CODE comes in. I do try to entertain and give importance to most of the orders but please understand if I couldn’t process it immediately. Normally it takes 2-3 weeks to have a blazer made but please order a month before you actually need it. Again, no rush orders shall be entertained.

Can I do a rush order?

A unique quality product requires time. Email me a month or two before your event. I couldn’t handle rush orders because of my studies.

How much is a Fifth Code blazer?

A Fifth Code blazer costs Php3, 200.00. This is made of Cotton Twill fabric. Depending on the design and fabric (wool is more expensive) additional charges will follow.
