Whenever we think of corporate attire, it’s usually the typical polo with a tie and slacks combo. It’s what we commonly see on the busy streets of usual CBDs. Don’t you think it’s finally time to bring back wearing barongs?
Barong Tagalog (or simply barong) is the national attire for Filipinos. It’s usually worn with a tucked inner shirt during formal occasions such as weddings, inaugurations, and the like. This gives the notion that wearing a barong is only for big events, not for daily work wear.
True enough, with its silky texture and seamless embroidery, it can easily make anyone look distinguished. Though that may be so, there are different variants of barong that look more casual and can pass as corporate attire, like the newest Barong collection of Michel Andre.
Michel Andre is a well-known retailer of formal wear who has been distributing carefully-crafted garments to various department stores nationwide since 1994, making it one of the trusted brands guaranteed to deliver quality and a developing fashion style through the years. The brand recently launched a collection called “Contemporary Barong“, which is intentionally made for the modern corporate man.
