Leather and Pineapple Silk

Dark aesthetics and global elegance

The barong shirt is formal Filipino men’s wear, usually for weddings and such. The fancy expensive kind is out of pineapple silk; the cheap kind is out of polyester.

When I visit the Philippines, I see men wearing the barong in the same boring fashion: a few sizes too big, shirt untucked as always, and with black dress pants. I’d like to see the barong worn in creative ways, like this lady has done here. She’s wearing them with Doc Martens.
