Let's encourage each other to embrace who we are—and to take brave steps

Who we are

Our Units

We're more than trouser makers. Our Units is here to encourage people to embrace who they are—and to take brave steps towards better balance in life and nature.

Our purpose reflects the belief that sustainability in the outer world begins in the inner. When people feel safe to be authentic, they unfold in the most change-creating, optimistic and persistent way.

That's why we're here—on a journey towards better.

Better means feeling connected and seeing each other as we are. It means caring for each other, our partners, our trousers, the ones who wear them, and everyone we meet.

Everything's connected.

Let's embrace who we are.
Let's take brave steps.
Let's move towards better.
Let's do it together.

With ease, love & understanding,

Our Units, the home of Five Units and Plain Units

Our design philosophy


When you feel comfortable, being yourself becomes much more straightforward. We work to make our trousers support and inspire you to embrace yourself as you are—and to take brave steps. Getting it right is a matter of striking a balance between a comfortable fabric, a shape fit for the human body and versatile looks that make it easy for you to wear them with whatever you have already.


We like getting close—and our trousers' fabric is where we begin.⁠ ⁠Upon finding a perfect fabric and a fabricating process to match, we experiment, test and iterate until we've made a material ready for your life.⁠ ⁠ On the one hand, quality is a matter of physical durability. On the other hand, it's a matter of aesthetic longevity, and we intend for our trousers to stay appealing to you across time, trends and seasons.⁠ ⁠We believe we need trust to embrace ourselves as we are—and to take brave steps. So, we work to make the quality of our trousers, wear upon wear, trustworthy in every moment of your life.⁠


By caring deeply about fit and craftsmanship, keeping favourites around for many seasons, and continuously improving them, we work to make you feel at home in our trousers, year after year, trouser after trouser. And by using familiar fabrics across our entire collection of fits, you'll get to choose the aesthetic you like—in a fit you know, trust and love.
