LOL: This engineering student used his long sleeved top for bottoms as a fashion emergency fix!

Should we call the fashion police? Don’t think so!  This mechanical engineering student was so resourceful in trying to comply with the dress code!

With no time to waste or seeing the nearest clothing store to purchase pants to cover his legs, JC Asilom was able to use his wit and cleverness in coming up with a new outfit to enter the plant he is currently taking his OJT (on-the-job training).

“I think I made a look,” he tweets. “No one is allowed to enter the plant wearing shorts, luckily, I brought long sleeves with me, HAHAHA!”

The finished product? His long-sleeved top dubbed as pants. And it doesn’t look so bad, considering it’s a fashion emergency!

WHEN IN MANILA has reached out to Asilom for further details.

Pumunta ako sa plant (where I am currently having my OJT) para mag-follow-up ng requirements. Naharang ako ng guard kasi I was wearing shorts. I badly needed to enter the plant kasi malapit na mag-start ang OJT namin. I was panicking na, tapos naisip ko na rin na I had to do something. I searched my bag kung may nadala ba akong pants or whatever, tapos nakita ko long sleeves ko. I thought I could fit my thighs sa sleeves para mag-mukhang pants – surprisingly, it fits! It didn’t feel comfortable when I wore it, but I pulled through and entered the plant din.  This was one of my “engineer ka, you have to do something, innovate” moments!
Rough translation:
I went to the plant (where I am currently having my on-the-job training) to follow up with my requirements. I was stopped by the guard because I was wearing shorts. I badly needed to enter the plant because the start of our OJT was nearing already. I was panicking, and I thought that I had to do something. I searched my bag if I brought pants or whatever, then I saw my long sleeves. I thought I could fit my thighs in the sleeves so that it could look like pants – surprisingly, it fits! It didn’t feel comfortable when I wore it, but I pulled through and eventually entered the plant. This was one of my “You’re an engineer, you have to do something, innovate” moments!
Talk about resourcefulness, right? Good job, man!
