Fifth Code is a Manila-based brand that was built on the premise of self-expression. We are all for being true to oneself and never ever apologizing for it.
Founded in 2010, Fifth Code was born out of founder Lorenz Namalata’s constant need to create. Since its beginnings as a made-to-measure menswear brand to its continued growth as a lifestyle brand, Fifth Code’s priority has been to create pieces with purpose, one you can carry with pride. Consider it a letter to the 18-year old you – a reminder that it’s never been about fitting in or standing out, but about carving out space where you’re free to just be you.
Say hello to Fifth Code. This is your dress code.
