Meet the founder
Hi, my name is Tristan Van Drine. The idea of wearing my own clothing line has always been something that satisfied me. The year the brand was established, I was living by myself in Europe. Covid-19 gave me the time to explore the brand and really move forward with it. I was living in apartment 49, hence the brand name "4tothe9". I was inspired by other Canadian brands such as 437, Lids, West 49 and more. Brands like these paved the way for ours.
4tothe9 is a Toronto based apparel brand. It started out as just a fun theme page to keep us occupied during quarantine. But as our number of followers rapidly grew, so did the standards for this brand. Our products are inspired by the people and world around us. Beautiful, high quality goods that are designed especially for you.
