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!

"Whatever the Weather"

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!

T-Shirt: Bench Body; Aztec Shorts: 3rd Street Clothing; Shoes: Milano (Greenhills Shopping Center).

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!


Lookbook: Like a Good Soldier

"Good Soldier"

Attention! I’m about to share a secret–

If you’re working out and you want people to notice–wear shirts that are a size smaller than you normally wear. No, I’m not saying you should wear a smaller size–just a size smaller than your usual clothes. That would definitely make people notice your physique.

As those of you following me on Instagram (and my other online accounts) know, I’ve been working out. Now, it’s time to show how far the arms are going along.


In Case it Rains

"In Case it Rains"

During the rainy season in the Philippines, picking clothes is always a dilemma. Are we in for a warm day? Or should we expect heavy rain fall?

That’s why, today, we’re bring back the orange capri pants. In case it floods. And a breezy tee for in case it gets too warm. To unconventionally cap the outfit, we went with blue snakeskin loafers from Mario D’Boro that’s easy to slip off and carry… in case it floods.

You read right. We mention floods. Twice. Storm season has begun here in the Philippines, and in Metro Manila, it’s always safer to assume that it’s going to flood when you’re picking out what to wear.


Prep Dude

Yikes! May’s almost done and we haven’t done a proper update. Life’s a bit hectic for everyone right now; though, truth be told, it’s always been hectic. If we waited for time to free up for most everyone, this blog would never have gotten started. But let’s not dwell on that, and get back to what this blog about–local fashion!

Granted, I don’t really know how local Mick + Marty is. All attempts at locating their home base has so far yielded no results.

In this set of photos, Teejay is sporting an aztec print polo-shirt from Mick + Marty, with a pair of khaki denims and a DIY belt made from a leather strap and velcro. Teejay made that one himself. (more…)
