Meet the Team

Dennis van de Water – Co-Founder of The Hand

Say hello:

In Dennis’ opinion, nothing makes him feel more confident and complete than wearing a high-end pair of shoes. Each morning, he evaluates what’s ahead of him – from meetings to the weather and how he’s generally feeling – and dresses accordingly from the feet upwards. Most men start by picking out what suit to wear before then deciding on what pair of shoes, so Dennis’ approach isn’t particularly normal. However, there aren’t many men in the world who are as passionate about shoes as Dennis. There’s little that excites him more than the hand-sculpted lines and artisanal details, which are elements of high-end shoemaking that he can wax lyrical upon for days (and even weeks!).

Dennis’ favourite style: Loafers!

Eveline van de Water-Roks – Co-Founder of The Hand

Say hello:

From Bangkok to Nairobi, Eveline has lived all over the world. However, it’s Amsterdam that’s her forever home and it brings her immense joy on a daily basis to live and work in such a culturally-rich city that somehow balances serenity with an always-cool buzz. She describes her home as having a charming “shabby chic” sense of style that’s effortlessly elegant and cool and this is reflected in many of the styles that she’s curated at The Hand. When she’s able to have some downtime from the family and business, she likes to take a few moments and walk along the many canals, as the view never gets old.

Eveline’s favourite style: Boots!

Hoessein El Hadouchi – Sales Manager

Say hello:

Hoessein is the newest member to join The Hand family and we’re delighted to have him! The world of menswear has been familiar to him since his childhood, and he’s gained experience in every different segment possible before realising that it’s what’s on his feet that fulfils him most. Naturally, he and Dennis have lots to talk about for they are both nerds when it comes to the artisanal details – such as hand-stitched aprons and closed-channel stitching. Whilst details are important, he cares most about timeless style and he’s rarely seen in anything other than a pair of tassel loafers or his favourite: the Dover by Edward Green.

Hoessein’s favourite style: Lace-Ups!
