Sky High

"Sky High"

We’ve featured a shirt from AMS Shirts before— and we liked how it looked so much that we got a couple more shirts from them. One of which became a Tumblr Exclusive post.

"Sky High"

This outfit was conceived as a back-to-school look–provided you’re allowed to wear shorts in your school. But it works as a casual get-up too–especially now that school years are being adjusted to start later in the year.

The clouds shirt AMS Shirts feature heavily in this post, but we would also like to bring to front the paisley-lined shorts we got from Zalora.PH.

Zalora.PH, if you have been living under a rock for the past couple of years, is a Pinoy offshoot of an online shopping center that’s already big in Singapore and Malaysia. It makes shopping for clothes (and gifts) very convenient for people who don’t really have time to go to the mall. And they’ve got quite the collection.

And, if you’re already familiar with the online shopping site, do visit again. You’ll notice that they’re carrying more Pinoy brands these days: brands like Straightforward Clothing, (our favorite) Timothy Scotch, and more. They tend to be a little more expensive than the imported clothes by resellers, but they’re made by our fellow Pinoys.

Whatever the Weather

"Whatever the Weather"

What do you do when the weather’s some times hot, some times cold, and some times just right? Find the right outfit to fit the unreliable weather, of course!

Simplicity goes a long way–so long as it’s also the right fit. For example, in this ensemble, Jeremy is wearing a Bench Body tee without any designs. It’s just blue. But because the shirt size is just right for his body type, it doesn’t matter that there are no statements emblazoned across the tee. What matters is that Jeremy is comfortable with the shirt.

We make up for the simplicity of the shirt with a bit of pomp on the shorts though. We found this pair of ‘Aztec Shorts’ at a bazaar at Eton Centris from a brand called Third Street Clothing. And they have it in many colors. Which you can find on their Facebook page, alongside the snapbacks they’re also selling.

As Summer comes to its end, we’re going to start featuring back-to-the-grind outfits again. But before we do, we want to know what looks worked best for you this Summer!

Take Two

"Take Two"

We Pinoys aren’t really the type of people to have one-offs–clothes that you wear once, and then completely forget about. Which is why when we feature clothes here, we’re also thinking about how else it can be worn–

Case in point, this Coco Republic long-sleeved button down we featured a few weeks back, when we went full citrus. This time, Mikoy is wearing it with the pair of chambray shorts we featured by the bay. (more…)

After Work

"After Work"

Sorry for disappearing on you guys.

No, Teejay isn’t the one writing this, since this is a leftover look from a previous shoot. Back when the outfits were mostly my idea. Like this one. So it would only make sense that I be the one to explain this, right?

Anyway. The look is business casual, and the centerpiece was supposed to be the white shirt from Timothy Scotch. Except we didn’t exactly achieve the focus we wanted to give the shirt. Not making an excuse here, just stating a fact: we’re not professional stylists. We’re bound to make mistakes here. And we’re hoping you would be able to help us out as well.

So, ingredients to this look: the aforementioned Timothy Scotch button-down (which is really comfy and cool, according to Teejay), a pair of green chinos from Uniqlo, boots from Timberland–and the accessories, save the for the UniTime Silver watch Teejay is sporting, were all bought at the SM Department Store: that’s the aviators, the tie, and the belt that you can barely see. The whole look comes up at around a couple of thousand bucks.

Now, before I leave you to the rest of the pictures, I’m leaving a call for participation. You guys may have noticed that it’s predominantly Teejay you’re seeing in this blog. And while we’re setting the blog up to give Teejay his own page, the Pinoy Threads motto is still to promote affordable fashion pieces made locally–for men and women. So we’re looking for people who want to be featured on the blog: as fellow fashion bloggers, or as new members of the Pinoy Threads team. Send me an e-mail to pinoythreads(at)yahoo.com!

On to the pictures!
