Clothes against complacency.

We champion the mentality of dispelling the ordinary, never settling, and always striving for more in whatever you set out to achieve. 

The average deck of cards has four kings. Never settle with the cards that life hands you. 5 Kings was founded on this very principle. Create your own odds. Build your own deck. Always be one better than what you are given. 

Our story began in 2021 in Traverse City, MI. Our goal from the beginning has been to define the balance between relaxed and refined, with looks suited for a productive day at the office or a memorable night out – and never cutting corners or sacrificing the quality of the apparel we produce. 

What started as a small line of t-shirts, hoodies, and hats, has quickly evolved into an expanding catalog with a loyal customer base from all reaches of the United States and even Mexico. 

Ultimately, we create clothes for the like-minded. For the ones who choose to take the long way, but who play as hard as they work. 

As embodied by the brand itself our goal is to continue to grow and expand in ways which can only be dreamed of.

If that’s you – you’ve come to the right place. 

Welcome to our community. Welcome to 5 Kings.
