Five Units

Love Letters


Can we love a pair of trousers?

Trousers. They're there for us, on our legs, every day, through thick and thin, wash after wash. 

But what do trousers we love mean to us—and how we live our lives?

At Our Units, we get feedback, reflections and touching testimonials from people worldwide, by e-mail, on calls, through social media and face-to-face—and it always moves us when our work makes a difference.

See how trousers have made a difference in these people's lives.

Love Letter No. 1

I'm a mother, I work with technology, and I'm passionate about Scandinavian style and taking street-style photos.

During the day, I bend, stand, sit, and move from one place to another. My trousers from Five Units make me feel comfortable doing all that.

I also like the diversity of styles—baggy, tight, and a little sexy. It helps women express how they feel and adjust throughout the day.

It's about how we treat ourselves and the energy we share.

Love Letter No. 2

Five Units has become a part of me. The trousers have been with me for ten years, and I have eight pairs of Angelie in different qualities and colours.

The dark blues are my safe trousers—in them, it feels good to be me. They balance practicality and neatness and make me comfortable when I'm home, cycling and working as a Social Educator.

The best thing about Angelie is that my stomach can't be seen, plus the slim fit and cutlines across the thighs highlight my slender legs.

When I was younger, I always covered myself in wide dresses. Today, the trousers give me the desire to show who I am.

Love Letter No. 3

Sometimes when I prepare tomorrow's outfit in the evening, I wake up feeling like something else—but I stick to my Five Units trousers.

They've followed me for a long time and feel like the right choice; may the day be good or less good. The trousers are a feeling that complements and reflects how I support myself from within.

They're a core of safety and security—something that just works and gives me the freedom to experiment physically, mentally and spiritually in new areas.

I can literally walk the way that's mine in these trousers, and I wish for everyone to find their path and keep moving—even if it's just jumping and dancing on the spot, which these trousers are perfect for too.

Love Letter No. 4

I guess most of us have a thing or two that we pull out of the laundry basket and put on again—that's what I do with trousers that make me feel attractive just as I am.

Like my Clara. They sit tight without tightening, and I sense them without thinking about them. It's a feeling of security, comfort, self-confidence, and charisma which carry me throughout the day.

I live in those trousers and want them in all colours—which is why I love Five Units' sustainable concept, where colours may change, but the style remains.

Being able to hold on to my favourites matters a lot. Imagine if Clara weren't in the collection anymore, and I couldn't get this feeling anymore
